    New Garras And Filter

    Been a really long time since I had my last post, suppose everything has been running smoothly up until now. About 4 days ago I purchased 2 new Garra Rufas, they seem to have settled in really well and are eating properly along with the apple snails and a large armour shrimp. By all accounts...

    Fraying Fins Of Cories

    They have all settled in fine now and the broken fins are no more, I should think that it was the barbs. I am getting rid of them soon. This morning they started laying lots of eggs on the side of the glass which i hope is a good sign and only being in the talk for a week seems pretty good...

    Bog Wood From Beach

    Hello, I went to Hemsby yesterday and I was picking up stones and other pieces, and then I came across two pieces of spindly wood, one looked like red moor and the other one I'm not sure. I was wondering, because I picked it up at the beach and it is fairly big (maybe 4 foot long) whether I...

    Co2 Is Bad?

    One of my friends has told me that CO2 can go badly in a fish tank. Apparently it releases to much CO2 at the last 20% and it releases the last contents into the tank. This apparently stays in the tank and prevents the fish from getting oxygen, so they suffocate. Is this by any chance true...

    Lighting Colour

    Recently whenever I turn my light on it takes a while (maybe 2-5 seconds) to turn on and makes a blinking noise when it does so. So, I asked in my LFS and they said that it would be wise to change to a different bulb as this one is getting older. I would like my tank to look a bit different...

    My Guppies Are Dying

    It sound as if you have had added too many fish in a short period of time, and your filter could not cope with the waste that the fish were making, so inevitably, they died. Sorry to hear about the deaths but try not to add any for another week or so until your filter has had a chance to catch up.:)

    Filling Out My Tank

    Hello, haven't posted for a while but I have recently taken out loads of Vallis because they all had algae covered over them and basically died. The question I wanted to ask was, what kinds of plants (Back, middle and foreground) would fill out the tank because it is looking pretty bare at the...

    Could I suggest to check your plants thoroughly first and maybe use the 20l round mine for quarantining fish.
