    Could I add a Bristlenose catfish to my tank?

    Well it was worth asking before I bought one then. Also I did have very fine gravel in my tank but I had to move my entire stock to the fry tank cause my other one burst, but never knew that it held bacteria I will add it back in today when I do a water change. Yes I knew about the wood, I...

    Could I add a Bristlenose catfish to my tank?

    Evening all so as the title says I would like to add a Bristlenose catfish to my tank but unsure if I can. So I have a 60ltr tank (dimensions are 42 height, 61 length and 33 wide cm that is) it’s filtered by a fluval u2 and is bare bottom. It’s currently inhabited by 3 platies, 5 endler guppies...

    Confirm

    Not 100% sure but looks more like some sub species of cory catfish to me.

    Moving with fish

    That's a relief that i don't need any extra water but just to be safe i'm going to get some of those cheap big bottles of water and fill them up just to be on the safe side., and yes i forgot to mention about the re-acclimation before releasing them back into their tanks. Also does anyone have...

The only thing i'm not sure about is the water. They...

    Fluval U2 filter

    Ah i didn't think about the filter falling and the noise, so i will most likely get one off ebay. Thanks for the suggestion on getting a larger bit of foam and using the wool instead of the carbon things. Hopefully this will bit much better then my current filter.

    Fluval U2 filter

    Please bear with me, here is a little history. So about 5 years ago I rescued 2 very large goldfish and they came with a 2 or 3 foot tank and a filter that was not adequate (a stingray 15 i think) so I got a fluval U2 and kept the stingray in there for extra water flow. I re homed the goldfish...

    Hey peeps

    Hi all so I have kept goldfish before but this is my first tank in a few years and decided that tropical sounded more of a challenge. So as an early Christmas present I got a 48 litre tank which I have just recently rehoused my sisters female platy and her 3 babies, I also added 3 spiral snails...
