    First Tank Juwel 125

    Like I said, I didn't mean to be rude...I understand what it's like to be new and I hope I wasn't too snappy. I just understand that it can be quite frustrating to offer advice to someone and feel like it's been ignored because they haven't followed through on their end! A lot of people are of...

    First Tank Juwel 125

    +1...I don't mean to be rude but I think you handled this whole situation terribly and if I was KittyKat or Fluttermoth I'd be pretty upset that you just completely disregarded everything I said and basically just said "F*** you, I'm gonna do what I want". The people on this forum care about...

    Need Help With Ammonia!

    Oh goodness! Your tank is heavily, heavily overstocked! As fluttermoth said, you either need to rehome some fish ASAP or get a bigger tank! If you want to keep them, I'm quite sure you'd need around 200 litres for them, but don't quote me on that! Getting your stock list down to something the...

    Need Help With Ammonia!

    Hi and welcome to the forum! :) Just to help kick start the help that I'm sure the more experienced users will give you, I'll just ask the common questions that seem to help diagnose the problems. Did you cycle your tank? If you did, was it a fishless cycle or a fish-in cycle? What are your...

    March 2011 Fish Of The Month Winner Is.......

    Congrats, Mark! That handsome boy got my vote, but it was a tough one alright! ^^ I'm sure he's just gorgeous in real life!

    This Is Awful! >:(

    Exactly...and I don't think I even need to point out how messed up that is. :/ It's like I said, they're not disposable decorations! But so many people think they are. It's awful. Just awful.

    This Is Awful! >:(

    There was apparently an outrage about it but nothing got done...unbelievable, I know. If it was a kitten, there'd be war. And apparently the poor little things were lucky to make it through the manufacturing process, and even if they did, they only lasted a few hours in the keychain. More to the...

    This Is Awful! >:(

    Yeah apparently they were sold in the hundreds of thousands during the Beijing Olympics...seriously wtaf. Disgusting IS the only word for it, I can't believe someone actually thought this up and could look themselves in the mirror every morning. Fish are not disposable decorations! D:<

    This Is Awful! >:(

    I was looking through Google images at some pictures of Fantail Goldfish, since I'm researching them in order to keep around 3 juveniles in my new tank, (but also mainly because they're absolutely gorgeous and I love looking at them), and I come across this!! I audibly gasped when I saw that...

    Expensive?

    Breeding pairs can get really expensive, I've noticed, but the fancier males can sometimes fetch quite a price on their own, as well. My Crowntail Betta was £7, which is about normal for a single Crowntail with his colouring. But like lilfishie pointed out, they can be £15 and upwards if...

    Crazy Question / Idea!

    Haha you bet! I can't start my cycle until the end of April, so I'm hoping I can get my hands on some mature media and have the cycle finish in early June, so it's a while to wait for pics I'm afraid! D:

    Is It Just Me Thats This Sad?

    lmao don't feel bad tons of people base their love lives around hobbies and stuff...like if someone loves dogs they're not gonna date someone who hates them, usually... At least that's what I tell myself to make myself feel better hahaha. Because my life has definitely been completely hijacked...

    Is It Just Me Thats This Sad?

    LOL I sympathise...I had a date recently with a lovely guy and I couldn't stop talking about the tank I've just bought and what I want to do with it, and about my Betta... :blush: I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm mental, but he actually thinks fish are boring! :P Obviously not a match made in...

    Is It Just Me Thats This Sad?

    Oh my God no I definitely do this! xD I was watching some programme the other day where Mariah Carey or some other overpaid public nuisance was showing a camera team around her house, and she had this MASSIVE marine tank spanning about 10 feet of her wall, and all I could think was 'Hot dammm...

    Almond Leaves

    That's pretty cool, I've not heard of them coming with almond leaves before! Where did you get your boy from? Maybe they assumed you'd be breeding?

    Almond Leaves

    I don't, personally...what do you mean, exactly? Use them for what? EDIT: I just read about using almond leaves, sounds pretty cool! :o Like some kind of miracle plant or something, hahaha. Anyway no, I don't use almond leaves because I don't breed, but after reading up on it I'm pretty sure...

    Crazy Question / Idea!

    Thanks John, I've decided to go coldwater though in the end. :) I'm definitely going to steer clear of the aforementioned website though...I'm pretty flabbergasted at how inaccurate it is.

    Crazy Question / Idea!

    Of course, I've read all about them this past week and I'm buying a more heavy-duty filter than the one I have now...my Fluval U2 won't be enough for goldfish. :P I'm on it! Again thanks so much Kat, you've been an enormous help. :)

    Crazy Question / Idea!

    Well that sounds like a perfect solution! I'll get 3 Fantail juveniles and once they get to 4-6 inches I'll upgrade to a bigger tank, which won't be an issue at all because I've been planning on upgrading ever since getting this 125L. :) Oh no no don't worry, I'll be able to afford it for...
