    125L Sajica Cichlid Tank

    Over Christmas I decided it was time to rehome all my little community fishes and start a NW Cichlid (breeding) tank. I started a thread on this forum a long time ago threatening to do it and asking for species advice etc. Now I've finally done it and I decided on Sajica's. I picked up what I...

    My 125L Journal

    Might as well do a journal on this one now I've decided to plant it again. It used to be a moss only tank but after moving house and storing everything in a plastic container in a garage the moss pretty much died. The bit I salvaged went in my bigger tank. Anyway, got a new piece of redmoor for...

    Plant Substrate

    Hi everyone Having just moved house I'm ready to make a start on rebuilding my tank. I'm looking for something different having used aquabasis and argos sand before. It needs to be... - Not too expensive - Cleanable like sand, not gravel - Dark colour - Not going to blow around in strong...

    125L Moss Tank

    Here's how my second tank is currently looking. Decided to have a go at a moss tank with no other plants. I bought the Java Moss from eBay and it arrived in pretty poor condition, more brown than green. A couple of months later and it's starting to grow nicely. The Christmas Moss has done really...

    Angelfish Popeye Treatment Journal

    Noticed last night that my Angel's eye was bulging out of his head. This guy has always had a few issues with sores on his head which come and go, maybe even HITH not sure, so it could be connected to that. Anyway, tonight I decided to dig out the old 64L tank and use it as a hospital tank to...

    My 200L Journal

    I suppose it's time I got round to doing my own journal since I've enjoyed and appreciated countless others on here. Bought this tank in January 2010 and for the first 8 or 9 months the tank looked pretty terrible. For this first post I'll add some pictures from the 'early days' so you can see...

    My Roma 200 Progress

    Some pics to show how my tank has grown since I stripped it down a couple of months ago. Pictures aren't great but hopefully you get the idea... 1st January 2011 This was the last photo I took of this tank before I stripped it down. I had allowed it to become too overgrown, the hygro on the...

    Change Of Direction

    Right, I've currently got two planted tanks My Roma 200 and my Roma 125. I'm finding it difficult to maintain both tanks as planted, when one looks good the other suffers and vice versa. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and I'm pretty sure I want to go a different way with the 125...

    Video Video Of My Tank

    I've finally managed to completely get rid of BBA after a big outbreak towards the end of last year. After winning TOTM I had to pretty much strip it down and start again. A lot of the plants ended up in the bin. I want to try and get it back to what it was before so the layout is pretty much...

    25 Years To The Day Since The Challenger Disaster

    I'm 30 and can just about remember it happening. Not the details just the explosion really - horrible stuff. This video of all the family and friends and the teacher's school kids watching from the viewing area I find particularly grim...

    Seachem Purigen

    Ordered a 100ml pouch of Seachem Purigen and it arrived yesterday so added it to the top tray of my Fluval 305 last night. When the lights came on at 3 today I couldn't believe the difference in the water clarity. If it wasn't for the 305 expelling microbubbles due to a fault then it would look...

    Fluval 305 Problem

    I'm having a few issues with my Fluval 305. It's about two years old and has been running fine up until the last couple of weeks but it's started blowing millions of tiny, pin prick sized bubbles in to the water giving the tank a bit of a haze. It's also a bit noiser than usual, not loud but...

    My 125L Tank

    Bought this tank in October to replace my 64L. I don't spend much time trying to 'scape' this tank, most of my efforts go on the larger tank. I just shoved a couple of bunches of Hygro Difformis plus some cuttings from my other tank and the stuff just grows like crazy. There's also driftwood, a...

    Rainbow Jumped Right Out Of Tank

    Lifted the flap to feed my fish before when one of my dwarf neon rainbows flung himself right out of the tank. He landed in the small gap between the tank and the wall so was really difficult to rescue him. I reckon it was at least two minutes before I managed to get him back in the water. He...

    Some Interesting Fish At Lfs Today

    Just nipped to the LFS this morning and they had some nice new fish in, some of which I'd not seen before. Black Emperor Tetra Labelled as 'Peacock Killifish'. Photo does not do them justice. Anyone know anything about these? Black Harlequin Rasboras and some deep blue tetras I'd not heard...

    Endless Pursuit Of Dwarf Sag

    I've never had any luck whatsoever with foreground plants in my tank. After reading good things about Dwarf Sag and how easy they were I decided I had to have some. I've been looking for them in every LFS I know and never been able to find them. A few weeks ago I bought some plants which I...

    Fish Picture Quiz

    Since I'm a little bit bored I thought I'd give this a go. I'll post an image of a random part of a freshwater fish and you lot have to guess the species. First to post the correct answer wins and gets a big pat on the back. Common name is fine. So here it is: Fire away...

    Plant Id

    Just picked up some more plants, it was four bunches for a fiver so I took a chance on this one... I'm hoping first and foremost that it's aquatic. If it is I'm hoping it's hygrophila of some sort. Help much appreciated as always.

    64L To 125L Upgrade

    I've been looking to upgrade my 64 litre to a Fluval Roma 125 for a while now and finally got one off Ebay last week. Cost me £110, not a bad price, practically brand new. Also bought a Fluval 205 external off Ebay, that came yesterday so today was the day to get things started... The task was...

    Angel And Rainbow

    I've come home from work today to find two of my beloved fish with worrying looking symptoms. Firstly, my Angelfish... The two growths(?) on the side of the head were not there yesterday. There's also a smaller one on the other side. No loss of appetite. And one of my Incicus... I...
