    Overfeeding tetra?

    Something I’ve not really bothered with until we recently bought more discus. So now the new tank has been up and running for a while we have been out and bought 6 more baby discus to add to our 8 adults, they’ve settled in amazingly and I was surprised at how they move the big guys out of the...

    Ply under heavy tank to level

    It appears to be made from chipboard/ particle board that’s why I want the weight spread evenly on a flat surface rather than shove a few packers under the edges...

    Ply under heavy tank to level

    So a bit of a variation to the other post, I’ve noticed that the tank is level left to right but leans forwards. The footprint of the stand is similar to that of flat pack furniture in the picture so would ply be strong enough to hold the weight (it should be spread evenly). If I was to use for...

    Eneven floor, after some quick help:)

    So the new tank arrived and it’s all positioned and ready to go , the tank is sitting level and I have a pad between the glass and the top of the cabinet, now the floor is slightly rippled so would you be placing packers under the cabinet to take the pressure- it’s a 5 ft 450litre so will be...

    Moving house

    I think if my stock were discus they probably would be dead lol luckily my fish are hardy enough that amateur movers like me get away with it lol Well my discus are still at my friends until my new tank arrives- seemed pointless to keep moving them around when they’re in safe hands , the tanks...

    I cannot shake this algae and it’s starting to starve my plants

    Have you looked into Siamese algae eaters, ottos, or amano shrimp. All these have worked wonders eating up algae in my tanks in the past...

    Moving house

    Glad all went well for you! When I moved the discus I had to move them to a spare tank I had set up, move the big tank to a friends, set it up and then head back to pick the fish up. It was a bit cramped in the spare tank but it seemed the most logical way and it was only a few hours that they...

    Hi guys, sorry for posting such a massive post. I can’t seem to log onto my Old account so I’ve re-joined :) Me and my partner moved house recently, there was a 2 month gap (which turned into 4 with all this COVID business) between rented and buying where we both had to move back to our...
