    Advice on which fish to buy.

    Thank you so much for that advice. I’ve got soft sand in there (spent a fortune on it and didn’t know you could use the Argos one, oh well never mind) I’ve got some wood and branches and a few rocks too. As for plants, I’ve never had such good advice. I worry about snails but am definitely...

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    That’s the problem there are so many options, which is a good thing of course. I’ve appreciated the advice though on here and now have a better understanding of what will work and I’m thinking shoaling fish.

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    That sounds like a good option, nothing too big but lovely to look at.

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    I wish I had paid more attention in chemistry lessons now😂. I’ll go with the water as being on the soft side I just don’t want to harm the fish from the off so appreciate all of your expertise in this.

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    I have considered that option to be honest as I already have quite a few Bettas in various tanks around the house and have a few females in a tank of their own. I did try to add a couple of females to my community tank of platys/mollies once but unfortunately that didn’t work as they overfed. So...

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    I’ve certainly learnt a lot today about water parameters that I didn’t know. I check my tanks parameters regularly but never actually knew what the figures were from the outset. My mollies and platys are great but they breed constantly and no longer seem to be eating their fry. I fear if I put...

    Yorkshire water and all I can see is 43.9 mg/l calcium.

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    Thank you for the info on the water, I find it all a bit confusing so really appreciate you breaking it down into what will thrive etc.

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    That makes perfect sense and I have done that to some extent. I have taken photos of the fish I like the look of and then do my research and they all seem to be nasty little devils. I’m now thinking lots of tetras maybe and avoiding big fish. I love fish with big fins though. Maybe a thread fin...

    Advice on which fish to buy.

    So I’m about to set up a new fish tank 4foot 240 litres and cannot decide what to put in it! I’ve currently got a tank stocked with guppies platys and mollies as this was bought for my daughter several years ago. I think I’ll keep those in the tank that they’re currently in. I’ve got several...

    Can Multiple Tank Syndrome be treated in its early stages?

    A year ago I started with one tank but now have 8. I don’t have many fish but I am addicted to Bettas, so that’s a tank each and I don’t go for small tanks. I love breeding them. Be careful if you go for a Betta as they really are addictive!

    Is this Betta behaviour common?

    I thought the same thing but they’ve both got the white egg protruding and look nothing like my males. Eggs were coming out of both of them but mainly the one who thinks he’s male. The eggs came out of her the moment she released the other female rather than whilst she was squeezing. I’m...

    Is this Betta behaviour common?

    I’ve got several Betta Splendens and a house full of fish tanks as a result. I keep 4 females in my community tank. These females are happy enough in each other’s company but today as I was about to do a water change I noticed a bubble nest. Nothing particularly unusual there but I noticed eggs...

    Help! What are these spore like particles on my tank?

    They are fine, mother and daughter and get on very well. They sleep in the Betta log together. Any ideas what the white spores might be?

    Help! What are these spore like particles on my tank?

    Thank you for your reply. In answer to the questions, The tank is 60litres and houses platys, 2 Bettas and a recently added guppy. I gave my filter a good rinse (in a bucket with the original tank water) but don’t have any white filter floss. I‘m quite new to all this so any advice would be...

    Help! What are these spore like particles on my tank?

    Does anyone know what this is please? Spore type white particles. I did a water change 6 days ago but it has returned as before. I’ve just checked my water parameters and there appears to be a spike. Ammonia at 1.0ppm nitrite at 0.50ppm and nitrate at 5.0ppm. The fish appear fine and have been...
