    Hi All - Its been a long time

    I've not logged in to TFF for years so thought I'd stop by and say hello (remembering my password took a while). I don't presently have any tanks running but it's on my mind so watch this space. Good to see everyone. BTT

    It's Been A Long Time....

    Hi All I reckon it's been 4 years since I last logged in! Just thought I'd drop by to see if I recognise any the old faces. Hope you (and your fish) are all well. Regards Andy

    Spam Email

    It could be due to something else, I suppose. This was just the thing which immediately sprung to mind. I used to get no spam email at all, but now i get several per day selling me PPI insurance refunds, injury compensation and everything else you can think of.

    Spam Email

    Since the ads got put on this site, I've been receiving loads of spam email to the email address associated with my account here. Before the ads, I got none. Quite annoying to say the least. Anyone else experiencing the same?

    Editing

    That's not the case at all, Steve. This is something which has been imposed since the new admins were appointed. Before that, you were able to edit any post you had ever made, regardless of how old. I agree that it is a very restrictive feature and should be removed. Members should be able to...

    Lost Patience With This Fish Less Cycle

    These things sometimes happen with fishless cycles. Try doing a 100% water change. That may help. Be careful to match the water temperature so far as is possible though, your filter bacteria don't want a set back at this stage. You could also try testing your pH. If it is low, that can affect...

    Frequency Of Water Changes

    Changing about 50% of the water once or twice per week would be perfect. You will need to change more than that just now though as it sounds like you're doing a fish-in cycle. You should try to get some mature filter media from somewhere which will help your cycle immensely.

    Air Pump During Cycling

    Agree with AquaTom. So long as you have some other form of surface agitation, theres no need for an air pump at all. :good:

    Cabbage White Journal

    I had exactly the same little bliters eat my whole cauliflower crop this year. There was hundreds of them. Good luck in catching them turning into flutterbies.

    Cycle Question: Does Nitrite Cycle Typically Last Longer Than Ammonia

    Hi, Firstly, you need to change water in greater percentages and more regularly than you are currently. The levels of ammonia and nitrite you are reporting can be lethal for fish. The only absolutely safe level is zero. That obviously isn't possible in a fish in cycle so generally it is...
