    Old member back with new tanks

    Hi all, Been over 5 years since I was last on here so will be interesting to see if anybody is still here that I know. Have 2 tanks running at the moment with a third being set up (Full marine reef, a Nano reef and a Fish only marine). Now got to learn how to upload photos off my phone, etc...

    Change Of Heart

    Well, an interesting day that's led to my opinions of two LFS being reversed :) I won't name names (despite this being my intellectual property and the forum owners not being responsible for the content of my posts in any way, legal or otherwise) but we went into the LFS that we've always...

    Not Fun :/

    Coming home from the pub and having to set up an emergency quarantine tank for two dwarf frogs is not my idea of a fun Friday night :( Two new dwarf frogs floating around alive but upside down!

    Goldfish & Platys

    Hi, Just a quick one... Anyone see an issue with putting 5 platys in with a comet goldfish as a temporary measure until the goldfish gets rehomed? They would all be in a Juwel Vision 260l so space/filtration/heating is not an issue just compatibility. :)

    Goldfish Rescue

    So basically a friend is moving house, never been a very good fishkeeper (cant be bothered doing maintenance, etc.) and had neglected the tank which had 5 Goldfish in but now only has one due to obvious deaths. The remaining Goldfish was swimming in about 3" of unfiltered water (the filter was...

    Pregnant Or Not?

    The wife asked me to post this. One of the kids new Platys looks fatter than the rest, could it be pregnant? Any ideas how far gone if it is?

    Background Colour?

    Currently my Trigon that I'm in the process of converting to a reef is painted 'Duck Egg Blue' but I can't decided whether to change it to Black. I've had both colours before and there's pros and cons to each so would appreciate other opinions. The tank is empty at the moment as i'm doing all...

    Best Way To Stock Tank

    I'm planning on 16 Pseudotropheus saulosi in my tank but finding it hard to obtain that many in one go. My question it better to put all the suggested fish in at once or could they be added in groups (1m + 3f)? Also, the tank has been cycled to handle 6ppm Ammonia so how would that...

    Best Place To Buy? (uk)

    Well my tank is finally cycled and it's time to start looking for fish. I've decided on a species only tank with pseudotrophus saulosi - 3 males, 12 females - but I'm struggling to find anywhere near me (Aberdeen) that stocks in those quantities/know what they're stocking. Are there any good...
