    All Fish Behaving Strangely After 3D Background Installed.

    Hey all, thanks for all the advice. So I've done the following today:   1) Water change   2) Replaced filter media in bottom compartment with that black carbon   3) bought an air pump and air stone that runs the length of the tank.   Everything seems to be going ok! I'll let you know of any changes

    All Fish Behaving Strangely After 3D Background Installed.

    Hey Wilder, none of the fish seem to be breathing heavily or gasping. None are hovering around near the top or anything either, the corys and gouramis are just darting to the top far too frequently. The tank has been set up for a year, but was completely drained to glue this in. I kept the...

    All Fish Behaving Strangely After 3D Background Installed.

    Hey everyone,    I have a bit of a crisis at the moment,    I recently installed a 3d background in my aquarium, it's made from Styrofoam, covered in cement, then sealed with crommelin Pond Sealer.  I glued it in with selley's aquarium safe sillicone and waited for it to fully cure before...

    Saving Fish From Uncycled Tank!

    Hey everyone, just thought I'd pop in and let you know it's going well. The ammonia seems to handle itself without water changes (0 or very low reading, tested daily) so I've just been doing water changes to keep an eye on the nitrites and nitrates, which are both present now. Balloon Mollies...

    Saving Fish From Uncycled Tank!

    Hey fishaholic and star4, yeah I grabbed some filter media when I took the Loaches and Bala over, thanks very much for the tip. He couldn't take the mollies however, so I'll just be keeping up with the regular changes until things become stable.

    Thanks Betta. Yeah just googled the name. Seems like a scam they can sell that as an aquatic plant..

    Saving Fish From Uncycled Tank!

    I've read through the link and it seems like adding more bacteria is the way to go since it's only day 4 of having this tank. Tetra safestart and the Dr. Tims product are only available to me via post (will take too long), I can however get Fluval Biological enhancer. Seems to be a similar...

    Saving Fish From Uncycled Tank!

    Hey, thanks Rob, I have a friend with a huge set up in his garage who said he'd be happy to have the bala shark when it's larger. Didn't know the clown loaches were that large though, I'll have to give those to him too then, when they get bigger which is disappointing. Thanks for the info!

    Saving Fish From Uncycled Tank!

    Hey everyone, just signed up to the forum. Figured it would be beneficial since I plan to have this hobby for a long time. So I'm guessing this is an issue that comes up occasionally. I've put fish in an uncycled tank. I believe it's 250 litres.  The list of fish are as follows: #2 Clown...
