    Electric Blue Ram - Gill Has Been Ripped Off

    Yeah, sorry for being a bit vague on the details. I forget how many factors affect these things. I will be taking the injured one back, I've had a think about it.  Thanks for all your help =]

    Electric Blue Ram - Gill Has Been Ripped Off

    I have done a test for ammonia nitrite and nitrate. It comes up with different colours and they all looked as low as possible. I should have mentioned that I had several other fish in the tank, some harlequin tetras, a pair of siamese fighting fish, a pictus catfish and two corys. My tank is...

    Plants?

    My tank has been set up like 6 months now, and still looks really really bare. I've got sand as my substrate, and a bubble wall with green LED's along the back wall. Got a Cambodian theme going on, with a temple and a lion/dog type statue (if anyone knows where I can pick up more of this kind of...

    He Just Won't Heal

    I was thinking of moving the tank into the basement (it has got natural light down there) and getting some shrimp and maybe a the corys with a few new ones in there. I don't know the size of the new tank, the headboard of our double bed is just a little shy of the width of the chimney breast...

    He Just Won't Heal

    Hey, thanks for the great advice, I should mention I know I'm overstocked, the plan is to upgrade the tank in the next month or two before the fish become large as they're still little at the moment, to a large one in the chimney breast wall in the bedroom. I've tried feeding the fish chopped...

    Pets At Home - Parkgate, Rotherham

    My local P@H (ipswich) has improved greatly the last few months, in fact I bought a pair of bronze corys from there an have had no problems with them. They settled in well and although the staff weren't that knowledgeable about them, asked me lots of questions to make sure my tank was...

    Bogwood Online?

    I know it may seem obvious but ebay is usually a pretty good source of unusual bigger pieces. Pet shops often get too much they can't shift so they put pieces on. I've found some pretty nice pieces there. Sorry if it's an obvious answer...

    Fin Problems

    So I've had my betta since I got my tank about 8 months ago. I did get a couple of dwarf gourami maybe 3 months ago, and they started nipping at him so they had to go back to the shop After that they started healing up quite well, and I thought we were all going to live happily ever after...

    First Big Tank

    UPDATE So I've started the moss wall at last. What a saga this is turning out to be. I foolishly dried out the moss thinking it would make it easier to manipulate. Mistake. It takes forever to become green again. Still, live and learn. Bought plastic mesh panels from ebay and stitched them...

    First Big Tank

    Yes I knew my tank was getting full, but we had to take the gourami back because they just would not stop harassing the fighter, so it's all good now as we bought a more powerful filter too, even though the last one was doing just fine and all the levels of ammonia etc. were 0. But thank you for...

    First Big Tank

    UPDATE So the new killifish (I'm still not sure what species they are, if anyone can help it would be much obliged) were lovely, and as I said at the end of the last post, went unnoticed by the bf for two days. So I get back round there late wednesday evening and we can't see the male. Long...

    First Big Tank

    Thank you, it's really kind of you to say. I'm very very pleased I stuck with it. I would still like a few more pieces and a few rocks to really give it an abandoned ruin feeling, but I'm rather picky and nothing has caught my eye so far. I quite like java moss too, that gives a really good look...

    First Big Tank

    UPDATE Long awaited - I know. I have had so much going on recently that I've had very little time to even think about posting again. Right so where did I leave off? Good grief 29th August??? Wow... Well here goes... So I won out and we went with the Cambodian theme, but it's still very much a...

    First Big Tank

    Okay, so I've never had a blog or anything like this before, so this is as much of an experiment as the tank is, please bear with me. We (my boyfriend and I) currently have a small (20L) tank, with a Bronze Cory, Blue Siamese Fighter and four Harlequin Tetra's. I had a larger tank a few years...

    Cylcing A Small Tank

    Well I've got to convince my boyfriend to move a rather expensive chest of drawers into storage to make room for a larger tank, so at the moment this is all I have room for, and also at the moment I can't afford to set up a large tank, I know a decent sized set up costs hundreds. I was thinking...

    Cylcing A Small Tank

    I had a tank about six years ago when I was in my early teens, it was a monster of a thing, more than 5ft long which at the time was my entire armspan. I bought it from a man who lived not far from me so it was already cycled and the filter was well established. It was several months before I...
