    Changing substrate

    Thanks very much! You have been super helpful. The substrate would hold the bulk of the beneficial bacterial. Would it just be OK to add in the bottled stuff? Also as the tank has 200L it would take a while for the heater to get the water to an acceptable temperature for the fish. Is it okay to...

    Water parameters

    Thanks again for the help. My tank has been cycled properly. It's been running with good readings for 9 months but just when I changed to a new filter it spiked but I'm guessing that's the main cause as it would hold alot of the good bacteria

    Thanks to everyone for your help! I actually did put a new filter in a week ago but I did rinse the new sponges in the water from the old ones and also added bottled fluvel bacteria but maybe it hasn't been able to catch up yet. I'll do another water change and vacuum the top of the sand...

    Hi there, Quick question on water parameters. I've been reading higher than ideal levels of ammonia and nitrates and nitrites. Every week I do a 30-40% water change and the 2 tanks are well cycled around 9 months they've been set up. Question is, does keeping the ammonia levels low in turn...

    Guppy has a white bump

    Hi there, I have just noticed that one of my male guppies has developed a white growth on his head. He so has been getting bullied by the other 5 guppies and his tail has started to become tattered and frayed. Any idea what is wrong?
