    Breeding Pygmy Corys

    interesting thread.   I recently moved house, so had to empty the tank.  It is fairly heavily planted and the pygmys dont tend to. come out very much, certainly  not all together.  I knew that at the very least I still had most of them but wasnt sure if they are happy because they dont appear...

    Question About Moving House

    Thanks folks much appreciated, I originally went to the LFS for bags and left with the box.  I guess another trip is needed :p

    Question About Moving House

      I did think that was the case, but it somewhat renders the box rather irrelevant doesn't it? Oh well   Thanks for the response.

    Question About Moving House

    Hello,   I am moving house next week, I went into my LFS today and they handed me a huge polystyrene box I assume the fish arrives with them in.   I have a question that (embarrassingly) didn't cross my mind at the time.  Do I half fill the box with tank water and just put the fish in the box...

    Smoke/steam! Is It Safe? Advice Appreciated

    yet another £50 spent on the tank. But, light, heater and filter have been replaced. I felt so uncomfortable with the tank all last night and today. Power was off today, water was cold but all seem to have pulled through ok

    Smoke/steam! Is It Safe? Advice Appreciated

    Thanks guys I appreciate the advice.   I hadnt actually thought of the nemo example, but I did actually wash out the filter and it seemed to behave after.   I possibly foolishly did plug it back in and watched it very closely for a while.  It seemed to be ok through the night.  However first...

    Smoke/steam! Is It Safe? Advice Appreciated

    plugged it back in minus the heater and still got a deeply worrying hissing/popping sound    I cant leave this on.      Do you think the fish could survive a night without the heater and filter?   Its platys, mollys and corys.     Im really quite upset about this, I spent quite a lot of money...

    Smoke/steam! Is It Safe? Advice Appreciated

    After i turned the tank back on after a water change, I was watching the fish and suddenly I heard a sort of hissing noise, then I opened the lid and I swear I saw smoke or steam rising from the water (no fish died) Im now petrified of either killing the fish due to no power or burning my...

    Help Me, Dear God One Of My Mollies Had Babies!

    lol at this thread title :p. the "dear god" part of the title is why when I went in to get platy's and molly's today, I made sure every single one of them was female. No doubt I will still end up with some fry though!

    Are Tetras Resistant To Meds?

    a few degrees above standard simply due to the ich.     And now its just 10 perfectly healthy looking corys and a sick tetra left  dont even know what to do about the treatment now.  I can't add more fish without clearing the ich out of the tank, but the corys are the most impacted by the...

    Are Tetras Resistant To Meds?

    nah the point with this tank was to get a small, easily kept tank.  So I don't have any other tanks sitting around :(   im really depressed that this has happened after I spent ages doing a careful fishless cycle, getting the right fish etc.   Also, I am deeply confused why between 10 corys...

    Are Tetras Resistant To Meds?

    What Should I Keep With Pygmy Corydoras?

    So I have them now.  10 of them to be precise.   They seem happy, but I have a question if you don't mind.   I know they are meant to school, but mine don't swim around all together much, they mostly run around in 2's and 3's and sometimes by themselves  is that an issue and mean they are...
