    Bristlenose Eggs? Question?

    No change yet?   The plec is still holed up in his cave?  I'm guessing the eggs should have hatched by now?

    Bristlenose Eggs? Question?

    Hi all,   My Plecs have just laid eggs in a cave in my tank.      In order that they may survive would it be necessary to remove them, or is there a chance some may survive if I leave well alone?   Thanks in advance   ps   In the tank I also have Corys, Polka Dot Loach, Khulis, Red Eye Tetra...

    From Sand Back To Gravel...

    Thanks for the reply.   My larger tank (180l) looks ok with the sand.  It is just the small tank which has a lot of black detritus etc.  I think maybe it is the Amano Shrimp that cause this possibly?   Could that be right?

    Fluval Edge 23L? Worth Getting?

    Thanks, that looks a nice tank too.   Is the lighting ok?  I quite liked the idea of the night lighting that comes with the Edge?

    Fluval Edge 23L? Worth Getting?

    I would like one of these tanks to replace my other small tank.   Does anyone have any positive negative issues with them?  My main concern would be gravel cleaning with the small opening?  Is the Fluval gravel cleaner any good?   And also, could you keep Corys with the small opening? Oh, and...

    Need A New Small Tank? Fluval Edge, Spec Or Something Else?

    Hi all,   I need a new small tank 20-30l and love the look of the Fluval tanks?    The Edge 46l looks too awkward with the small opening at the top so I have been looking at the spec and the Edge 23l?   Anyone with any experience of these would be great or any viable alternatives?   Thanks

    Found These Fish? Rainbow Shiners?

    Notropis Chrosomus - Rainbow Shiner   Found these in my local LFS.   Beautiful looking fish. Anyone have any experience of them?   They were £7 each.  Looked fantastic.   Would they go with Corys, Black Ruby Barbs and Rainbowfish in a 180l community tank?   Thanks

    Sumps?

    Ah thanks guys.   As sound is a major issue for me I guess an external filter will be better for my 180l tank?

    Sumps?

    Been looking at new tanks and a couple come with sumps underneath?   I've no idea what they really are used for?  Are they instead of a filter in the tank, or they they more for specific types of fish?   thanks

    Switching To An External Filter?

    I've always wanted to switch my Juwel Rio 180 to an external filter, and have a couple of questions?   1) Are they a lot quieter?   and   2) What chance of a leak?  As that is my main worry.  I don't want water pouring out over the living room!!   Thanks in advance?   ps any tips on filters...

    Best Fake Plants?

    Always had real ones, but found a couple of decent fake plants added to my small tank looked quite good. The only bit that wasn't so good was the plastic looking stems (easily hidden by stones etc). Thought I may add some fake background plants to my large tank to "pad" it out a bit? Would...
