    South American Themed Reshuffle

    I've kept marble hatchet fish before, I find them very fragile. They are relatively small too and the angel fish might try to get a snack. I'd recommend the silver hatchet, a little larger and I found to be more active.

    I have 3 currently and they are easily 6 inches each. They are very easily spooked and jeez, when they freak out they can shift at some speed. I'm hoping to add a couple more but even my 5ft tank looks tight when they go darting around.

    Moving House / Moving Fishtank...

    When I moved house I kept about half of my tank water by filling big buckets with lids. I got them from a brewers shop. I left it as late as possible and took my fish out and bagged them up keeping as much oxygen in the bags as possible. I then removed as much sand and remaining water as...

    External Canister Filters

    I had a ehiem 2213 and 2215 (I think) on my rio 180. Never had any trouble with them the only nuisance was getting them to prime if I had cleaned out all the pipe work.

    3 X Cory Tank's Breaking Down - Biddulph North Staffs

    All the fish are swimming around very happy. Hopefully my grumpy bristle nose might come out and try to impress the new females. My sand looks like it is alive. Cories every where. Hope you manage to get your way again with the tanks and like I said I will happily repay the favour.

    Corydoras Stuck In Juwel Internal Filter?!

    I had this problem a few times. It was a number of years ago and I did lose a few cories due to not seeing them the first couple of times and squashing them after a clean out. I eventually pulled my internal out and bought externals.
