    Aquarium Bulbs

    "sunlight mimicking bulbs".   Although you may be referring to colour temperatures and alike, I noticed you mentioned "reptile bulbs" too. Just in case you may be talking about UVB bulbs (which are required for reptiles) - I do not know of any aquarium plants which benefit from UVB bulbs.   I...

    Help With Washing New Gravel?

    I cleaned my sand (I know you have gravel), by pouring tiny amounts in to a bucket of water. With several vigorous stirs in the sand, I would empty the bucket of the cloudy water and refill it. I did this several times with each amount of sand until the water leaving the bucket was acceptable...

    Suggestions On Water Flow In Tall Aquarium

    Hi,.   So let me begin by apologising if this is in the wrong section. I wasn't too sure, but presumed this to be quite a basic question (shame I've ran out of ideas!) so placed it here.   Anyway, I have a custom made aquarium, at 60cm tall, 54cm deep and 76cm long, this one is quite unique.  ...

    Help With A Silva Tip Emergencie

    Hey there, fellow UK-er! :)   As with any possible infection, medication should be applied in a quarantine tank.   Some would argue this induces additional stress however.

    Stocking A 59 Us Gallon Freshwater Aquarium

    The tank will be viewed from perhaps only 1 metre away (in my bedroom).   I don't really have a favour colour (strange - I know!), but I am leaning towards some schooling fish and one or two different fish. (i.e 15 Neon Tetras + 1 Pearl Gourami + 1 BN Pleco) Just for an example.   If I do have a...

    200L Stocking Advice

    Hi, I have a 222 litre tank, and have done a lot of research on stocking. I will be paying close attention to this thread, see if any fish interest me! :)   One thing to note though, that Galaxy Rasbora (also known as "Celestial Pearl Danios") are very small, even for a schooling fish(an easy...

    How Strong Is The Lighting In My Aquarium?

    Oh right. Well due to money, I do not plan on injecting CO2 for awhile. Will it be fine if I just purchase some floating plants to lower the light levels a bit and reduce algae?

    How Strong Is The Lighting In My Aquarium?

    That's fine! I want to try and add some height with plants anyway, rather than add them to the bottom! :)   May I ask how you worked this out?

    Leaking Tank | Cabinet Swollen & Locked Closed | Emergency!

    Alright guys...    So the doors had long enough to dry out - what was it, like 2 weeks?   They were still just as wedged as Day 1 as Day 14.    So with the help of some heavy hammers, screwdrivers, and an attitude which no longer cared - the doors were smashed to smithereens. (After checking for...

    Need Assistance - Planted Tank

    Back in the good old days, I used to walk into aquatic shops and just point and say "I like that plant? How much? Ok. I'll have it." I never researched, I just blamed the shop when it died.   However, now I know a thing or two about the plants I have realised the error of ways. Not only that...
