    Newbie, First Tank, Need Advice:-)

    I might get burned for this, but if you're finding fishless cycling really hard to understand, I don't think fish-in cycling is such bad news if done very VERY carefully. I did it because I was so confused about cycling and lost no fish during the cycling period, or any time soon afterwards...

    In terms of orange, red, and yellow fish,  Honey Gouramis spring to mind, as do Platies as has been said. Just google search those two and see if you like the look of them, they'd be compatible together... I'll try and think of more! Cherry barbs, Rummynose Tetras, Coolie loaches   How big is...

    Seems Pretty Cruel...

    That's the idea I believe, watch the video, it's kind of like an inbuilt siphon. I guess there wouldn't be much biological filtration...

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/930441187/noclean-aquariumstm-self-cleaning-aquarium-for-bet   Surely because Bettas are tropical you need a heater? And such a small tank too... Cool but cruel is my verdict, what do you guys think?

    Aquascape Centrepiece

    Thanks guys! And yes, I'm quite near a Swallow Aquatics...  I might take all the plants out and start again... What do you guys think about that? Also, I'd quite like to change the gravel. Is that possible with the fish in the tank?

    Aquascape Centrepiece

    Hi   I recently removed some rock, which served as the centrepiece for my aquarium, as it was covered in algae and looked a little weird. I wanted some advice on what you'd have as the centrepiece... I'm considering maybe bogwood?   Thanks!

    Fluval Filter Help.

    Might not be, it is a bit loose, and it won't click into place.

    Cheers for the suckers tip! The bracket is square not U-shaped... I'm not sure if it can click in.. Thanks, Sam

    Fluval Filter Help.

    I have a Fluval 2 Plus Internal filter, which I bought off eBay recently. It has arrived, and I am struggling to install it. The detachable sucker section won't stick to the wall properly, and the filter keeps on sliding off it and floating to the surface. I don't know if i'm putting the filter...
