    Accidental Peppered Cory baby

    I say accidental because I just left them to it & didn't realise there was a baby until this week :rofl: It's so teeny but getting more brave & coming out more from it's hiding spots.

    Bit of a bullying Endlers problem

    Hey I've 7 Endlers all male. I really regret getting these fish because all the do is fight. Everyone else in the tank are chilled & happy (some pseudomogil rainbowfish, peppered cory & a reclusive false zebra Pleco). The tank is well established & no issues with water parameters. It's got lots...

    My once terrible tank has settled nicely

    All snails die in my tanks

    Longest snail survival was an MTS but tank was cycling and after 2 weeks it died. I then got a Red Union snail for a different tank. It moved around for few hours then not at all for days. After 4 days it was clearly dead. A good while passes so I tried 3 nerite snails. Two for bigger tank...

    Floating plant for fast current & some splashes

    My frogbit has done terribly in both tanks. I do have quite a bit of flow along the surface & Aquaball filters really give a bit of splash too. My salvinia is even doing badly now. Any advice about a floating plant that doesn't mind a bit of swirl & splash? I just bought some giant Vallis for...

    Eheim pickup 160 is WAY too much for 58L/16 G

    Oh wow. My filter broke in the 58L tank i have. I decided to buy Eheim pickup 160 as it's from 60L up. I thought the pickup 60 was possibly too small as it's max 60L. Well I just blew the heads of my enders! :rofl: :eek: even turning it down it was just a whirlpool machine. I had to swap it...

    Egg Tumbler for Eggs layers

    Are these worth getting for egg layers? I keep saying I'll vac up eggs and don't want more fry but then eggs or fry appear and I feel too mean not trying to help survival. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07M5FFGLV/?tag=

    Bronze Cory immediately ate eggs

    I just spotted some eggs on my glass and immediately the bronze cories came up to eat them. There's none left now on the glass. No time to get a fry/egg set up ready. I wonder should I?

    Aquarium Kitchen Island

    Saw this in a self build FB group. As in build/extend your own home. All the comments are hilarious. Imagine the nightmare of water changes... Though you are close to the sink.

    Cory just died. Worried about others. Hope someone can help.

    We looked at tank 8:30am. All seemed ok. Few mins later noticed very still, very pale looking Cory. I thought it was dead but it moved. I started setting up a hospital tank. The Cory was swimming erratically. Seemed to be twisting & turning. Then it died. By 9am. I don't know what happened...

    Bendy spine White Cloud Mountain Minnow

    I got this fish on Friday. It had a curved spine. I thought I'd wait a few days & see if it was injury & improving. I posted about it in another thread but I think this part of my post got lost. So posting seperately as I worried about other fish catching something. The tank is getting wormer &...

    I've 10 Cherry Barb - 2 M & 8F. One male is bigger & has a section of the tank he's decided is his. There's plenty of chasing between the male's. I thought it was harmless but one has an injury on his head. He's still swimming normally chasing the other male and females. Hard to get pic as he's...

    Filter set up advice

    I've a 127L/34G tank that's 36" x 12" x 18". Inside I've 2 x Eheim Aquaball 130, set to 3/4 or 1/2 output speed. One has the spray bar set high so it creates a waterfall & ripple. The other has the turbo output which acts like an air stone. It's pointed downward & towards the front. In the...

    Temp query

    I'm thinking about the fish that will added to my new tank but also what I have planned for my older tank. I kept my heaters at 25C/77F because that's what they came set at. With ICH I raised temp in one tank & it's lowering now. My question is with a community tank do you aim for mid range of...

    I've just finished my 4th dose of wormer (NTL Anti-Fluke & Wormer). So that's a month of one a week doses followed by water change 24-48hrs later. Did these worms come from my fish? Do I need to keep using wormer & is it safe to do so when box says only 4 doses? Active Ingredients...
