    Honey gourami

    No sign at all sadly. The others seem fine and two even seem to have formed a little pair. I will monitor them for a couple of days and if all seems well I am going to go and get some more as I imagine the one alone won't fair too well if I do have a pair? Not sure if the same applies to these...

    Honey gourami

    Thanks I will look into that! Have cleaned it all off now and it looks lovely but I'm sure it will be back! My deformed little guy has gone missing today, all fine last night but absolutely no sign of him today. Am wondering if its possible for my stock to eat an entire body overnight!?! Very sad!

    Thank you so much. I have cleaned everything last night and tank is looking gorgeous this morning, so many leaves were so healthy underneath it all, some not so much but I've just cut them off. I have kept lighting low for now. Sand was the BD trading sand by Barlow aquatics? I have been...

    Thanks! Floating plants on order too! Should I be lowering the white light or all of them? Re the filter, I've always been told that the filters that come with the tanks are the absolute minimum and would be better off buying the next size up? The only thing that has put me off doing that so...

    Thank you so much. Weekly change due today so I'll make it a big one and get it off everything. I have some filter floss so I imagine that will be gentle enough for the leaves? I have a green phantom and it's usually so shy of the cories feeding frenzy 😂 but I did see it swoop in and scatter...

    Honey gourami

    You can clearly see the lump on the head and can almost make out the lump just in front of the tail (it's on both sides)

    I have 7 plants in the already but they are absolutely coated in diatoms and starting to look like they are dying underneath it. Had lots of leaf loss too. Tank has been established for about 4 months. I could definitely do with feeding less! There is never green algae in my tank, could this...

    Honey gourami

    Thank you! They are just the cutest little things. Very settled in now. Super friendly, always come out to see me when I walk up to the tank! I thought they were supposed to be shy 😂 One of them actually seems a little deformed, thought I was going to lose it but its fine now. It has a hump on...

    Hi The brown stuff is everywhere! I've been googling a lot and would like some clarification from someone knowledgeable before I start planning my rescape. I'd like to get this under control before adding new plants especially. I think my filter needs upgrading as it is just the one that came...

    Honey gourami

    Absolutely no floaters in stock! I was looking at frog bit, not 100% on floating plants and what's best though! I'd love something with long roots!

    Honey gourami

    Lovely thank you. The bag doesn't do them justice for their size, they are about 2.5cm! When viewing in the shop, one had very vivid colouring but since being in the bag it has developed a very faint line. Its dorsal is particularly longer than the other ones but otherwise, almost identical...

    Honey gourami

    This is my tank. Probably won't be able to find the little guys once they are in 😂😂 awaiting two anubias hastifolia mother plants to hide the back panel and need some frog bit other than that, I'm very happy with my tank 😊 thanks for your help BTW. Acclimatising as I type!

    Honey gourami

    Meet Frodo, Merry, Pippin and Sam 😂 no idea what sex they are, they are TINY! Shop happy to swap my out for different sex adults if and when the time comes but hopefully no problems. All seem to display the grey stripe? One less so than the others!?

    Honey gourami

    Just spoken to my lfs. They are very small and the guy who "knows stuff" isn't in today 😂 I'm gonna go and have a look anyway. Yes definitely not mixing. Can't stand a disruptive community! Plus my Cory's are so happy, I'd hate for anything to target them!

    Honey gourami

    Great thank you! Hopefully they have females in stock 😄 I have a little group of 6 peppered cories already. They spawn all the time so I think the gourami will enjoy finding the eggs in all the plants 😂 love cories, best fish imo haha

    Honey gourami

    Hello I am going to get some honey gourami today for a 125 litre. I have never kept more than 2 but have learnt that they display better and will be happier in a small group? If that is the case, could someone advise male to female ratio and how many I can get? I was thinking 4 but would like...

    Plants not doing great, please help!

    Oh that's OK then. I don't mind the look of it and perhaps my angelfishs eating habits will help keep on top of things 😂

    Plants not doing great, please help!

    Definitely getting some floating plants! Any recommendations? I've seen a lot of people saying to avoid duckweed?!
