    New tank advice - Oase Highline?

    After lots of toing and froing, we ended up going with the Oase Highline 300. Only had it for about a month, but so far so good.

    300 litre tank, dwarf cichlids stocking advice

    Thanks for the suggestions- I am thinking something along these lines. However I’d read somewhere that if kept as a group, you should have 5+ angels to diffuse aggression? How true is this? In an ideal world, I would probably want three or four as you suggest. Also trying to decide on a...

    300 litre tank, dwarf cichlids stocking advice

    Thanks for the advice- that’s extremely useful. Will probably give the blue rams a miss as I’d read elsewhere that they can be difficult. Would 1 male and 2 female apistogramma, pair of nannacara and pair of keyholes work? My 7 year old son is desperate for an angelfish too (I’m less keen!)...

    New tank advice - Oase Highline?

    Hi, I’m looking at buying a new 250-300 litre aquarium plus cabinet. I had been looking at the Fluval Vicenza or Juwel Rio tanks.
