    Afragog in aquarium?

    What are the uses of afragog in an aquarium beyond having a large surface area for bacteria? I remember reading it last time and deciding to add it to my tank; however, now I can not find any information about it. Is there anyone else that uses it in their aquariums/filters?

    Setting up breeding rack after losing all fish

    Hello, due to my water company changing what they put in the tap, I've lost my apistos and rams. So I'll be completely starting anew. So it means I can now go with what would be best for the fish (also going RO with discus minerals (I am not going back to tap, I don't want to face losing...

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    Yes, they are massively expensive, sadly. I got mine for £25 for a pair, and I was lucky for that cheap. I would love to get more, but as you said, they're too expensive really.

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    A rice paddy tank would be interesting, and I have some plants that would work well in that situation. I've got pseudomugil gertrudae at the moment, had the others previously and getting the neon red blue eyes. Although that would certainly be an interesting tank. A loach tank would be...

    Look into rainbow shiners, that is what I used to have. Brilliant colourful fish, sell for a lot as well.

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    Which is why I'm also looking into coldwater again (lost my whole tank in the heatwave). Maybe fork out on wave maker and go strong current coldwater fish for one of the tanks as the room has one of the biggest fans in the whole house.

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    Love to do something like that, not sure I could afford that at the moment sadly. Only recently got a job again, and every price is going up. That is definitely a challenge I'll go for in the future unless I locate some for slightly cheaper.

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    I should be able to negotiate with my job to take some, or I can do postage. I do want to breed, currently got a couple projects going with apistos and rams. Would like to do something different. Got two spare now, so maybe thinking one community one breeding or both doing one. I want to see...

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    My tap ph is 7.5 and gh of 10dgh, however, I also use ro for my dwarf cichlids. I also use botanicals and tannins, so that the water is correct for the fish, and not just 'pretty'. I used to breed cories; that is how I'm getting these tanks and racks! Trading a breeding group of black cories...

    35 gallon long, skittish community, breeding set-up?

    Getting two new 35gallon longs, around 3 foot, 140 ish litres. What would people say would be their favourite sort of fish or things to do with such tank? Community, breeding, crab? I'm thinking about possibly doing a skittish community including scarlet badis, sparkling gourami and the...

    Sexing and species of apisto

    Gibbiceps has a different tail fin shape, which doesn't match what Chopstick has. They just came out and I managed to grab better images. Chopstick does love causing chaos and confusion.
