    The price of Silver Dollars...

    Hi, So I haven't been able to keep Silver Dollars for many years, due to keeping other fish. Now I'm looking to buy a big shoal of them, about 8 fish. However, they used to be £4 in nearly every LFS (this was about 5 or so years ago). Now, for much smaller fish, they're at least £8 (sometimes...

    Air Pump Recommendations For Use In Deep Tank...

    I've tried the Rena 600 and the Eheim 400, but neither are strong enough for my 36" deep tank.   Once the air stone gets down to around 2ft deep, it slows to the odd bubble. Lift it up, and it of course works great, as it should.   Have tried shortening the tubing to the bare minimum and placing...

    Wanted: Old Tank For A Sump (Wirral/merseyside/cheshire)

    Hi,   Does anybody have an old tank laying about unused, that I could buy for use as a sump?   Ideally, I'm looking for a 60" x 18" x 18". But can go up to 8ft in length. The longer the better to be honest.   Let me know if you have anything!   Thanks.

    Does Anyone Know What Happened To; Www.aquariums-Manufacturing.co.uk?

    I was all set to order my huge tank from them. But after 18+ years they seem to have disappeared.   They are reasonably local to me and I'd been there to the shop, to speak about the build and check out some of the tanks. Everything seemed great. Was very happy.   Was told they have 4+ months of...

    Water Change Drain

    Hi,   So I'm thinking of ways to make changing 50%+ of the water in my 1500L tank easier.   I want to connect my tank to the household drain under a nearby sink.   What is the best way to do this?

    Going From 8 Litres Of Bio Media To 6 Litres...

    My Eheim 2080 has been dying a death in recent years. To be honest, I bought it used at a very good price so I'm happy I've had 5 years use out of it. Long story short, I need a new filter.   I keep a heavily stocked 400L Malawi Tank. I want to get the Fluval FX6 as I don't really want to go...

    Bristlenose Plecs Breeding Non-Stop - Worried About The Male?

    I have common Bristlenose Plecs in my Malawi tank.   I noticed the male was 'missing' and saw him in a small hollow skull ornament I've hidden in my many rocks. Thinking he was stuck, I removed the ornament to find a load of BN eggs.   I left them in the tank as I had nowhere to put the eggs or...

    Water For Malawi

    What do you think? Just trying to gauge whether I should add anything really. Tank will be with ocean rock, possible some type of crushed coral, though not a lot. Don't want to mess about with buffers at all, but will add cichlid lake salt/trace elements if necessary. Thank you.
