    Fish Id And Suitability

    Can anyone id this fish please, looked interesting in the lfs in the tang tank. I am guessing its a type of Neolamprologus, maybe mustax? If so these seem pretty ideal to include in my Tang setup (if &) when i convert my 20/25G community tank! Provided they have no nasty bad habits or need to...

    Julidochromis Gombi

I have been thinking about converting my 30in tank from a community to shell dweller/tang tank and these look very nice fish. But there doesnt...

    Giving Up On Gourami's

    it's a shame, but I am going to give up keeping gourami's. they are nice, but just seem to get ill too often when trying to breed them. I have thick lipped gourami's, and whenever I introduce a male to my females, or females to a male, they have fun doing what they do, and then after a couple of...

    Brush Algae

    hi all, Ok, I have a brush algae infestation in my tank. Not quite sure why it has appeared, probably a combination of some direct sunlight in my tank lately, stopping using flourish excel for a few weeks and then starting again, a trim back of some of my plants, an over stocked tank. Anyway...
