    Scientific Theories/Paradoxes

    Is it the Stephen King time travel/Kennedy assassination novel where the traveller has to keep his head down and survive by betting on gridiron-boxing-baseball-horse racing results that he already knows? I like the idea of that more than the idea of killing my poor Grandfather. Mind you I’d...

    I became a stranger's daddy today...

    I feel the OPs paranoia. That’s happened to me far too many times for comfort. The poor mothers always seem embarrassed beyond what seems to be socially acceptable in my eyes. I can accept ive not got movie star looks but the way these kids mothers react you’d think I was verging on horror...

    "New" to Hobby - Looking for Biotope themed aquariums

    Which websites are you getting your info from? Im far from being an expert which is why I listen to who are science backed experts………even when they’re telling me stuff I really really don’t want to hear.

    Copper Pipe

    Depends how long the water is actually in the copper pipe I suppose. It’s no doubt travelled through copper pipe to and other types to get to your tank…..unless your up Tyne(spits)-Wear-Tees dale type areas?

    And we think it's bad if our tanks leak......

    Im not even gonna read this thread. I discovered mine was leaking at 18:30 on Xmas eve last year. All the pre Xmas tasks were complete and I was midway through a phone call to my mam 260 miles away when the tank light timer clicked into action behind me. There was approx 4” of water left in a...

    Red striped killis and neocaridina shrimp

    Neocardinias stood no chance in my Heterandria Formosa species tank. Put em alongside each other in my nano community tank and they’re safe as houses though. Would that work with killis? I’ve never had killis by the way.
