    Stocking A 42 Uk Gallon Tank

    Hi, I'm thinking of setting up an aquarium at the community I'm living at which will be around 191L. It will have a 20L internal filter attached to it (so basically 171L) for the fish.   I'm thinking of adding loads of filter media, and maybe some java moss balls at the top of the filter too...

    Hexagonal Tank For Betta

    malta is very sunny (even in winter) so if i keep the aquarium in direct sunlight + 8 hrs of bulb light it should be ok no? i will also supply cucumbers + algae pellets. btw tank is 6.5cm sided hexagon at 32.5cm height. 23 liters / 5 gallons

    Hexagonal Tank For Betta

    After reading wikipedia about the, I am almost safe to bet that it will be very hard, yet will try my luck. Aren't guppies known of nipping the betta's fins? endlers seems to be of the same species as guppies :|

    Hexagonal Tank For Betta

    Whisper the problem with the set up is the base of the tank .. its a hexagon of around 30cm from one edge to the other .. so not a lot of space for them to swim :(

    Hexagonal Tank For Betta

    i dont like snails at all. no other companions for the betta which are fish and can live in that hexagonal shape? its just a bit boring seeing one betta male by itself. and mixing female bettas is asking for danger right?
