    200L / 53 US gallon

    Stocking suggestions that go with tiger/green barbs please? I've currently got a group of 12 of these, although will be upping this number to 17, most likely 17 anyway .. so that should curb their aggression somewhat although I will still need fish that wont be targeted by them or indeed be...

    easy low maintenance plants

    is there such a thing? I wasn't planning on adding tanks, purely because I dont want to make the extra work and add to the list of things that could go wrong .. but if there are some plants that dont require any co2 or fertiliser, and can be planted straight into a gravel only substrate, I may...

    stocking list check please

    sorry I meant, an additional 10g of the tank for the fantail, like I was allocating the space in the tank if that makes sense? .. do fantails require more space than black moors?

    stocking list check please

    That's why I thought it best to double check here! Just like I've read that they require 20 gallons for the first fish, then an additional 10 per fish So my thought process was.. 20 gal black moor, 10 gal fantail, 10 gal smaller fish

    stocking list check please

    I thought danios were 'temperate' not tropical since they're happy in water as cool as 18C / 65F .. but if they're too boisterous / aggressive then that's another issue altogether, I've just seen them suggested that's all Is there any other small 'space filling' that would be more appropriate?

    stocking list check please

    would this be ok in a 150L / 40 US Gallon tank 1x black moor 1x fantail 10x zebra danios 1x bristlenose pleco kept at 21 C / 70 F .. which I believe stays within parameters for all fish

    Water test results

    The KH goes to 240 but yeah you're right about GH could be higher, I'll get a liquid test done asap.. will it effect my Cory's? I have nothing in there that I think could be effecting water hardness, just smooth gravel substrate and fake plants/decor

    external filters

    I'm not sure if you can see both pics, the full tank one for me is showing as an X? but anyway, unfortunately I can't alter the spray bar as the weight of it pulls it down.. you cant tell from the pics properly but the holes are pointed diagonally upwards to the surface, i'll try upload a short...

    external filters

    I only suggested the stingray because of the previous comments, I did think it wouldnt be enough hence me putting up with the annoying volume of the one in there lol .. I'll probably go for the APS one when it comes to replacing it

    external filters

    If that one is too powerful then that's fair enough.. I have also seen an 'all pond solutions' one that I believe was 400LPH too powerful still or about right? I do actually have a hagen elite stingray 10 in a box somewhere which is around 200LPH?

    external filters

    I understand what you're saying, but surely there are more pro's than con's to an external filter.. providing it is not ridiculously overpowered for the tank .. the fluval 206 for example is 1150LPH, which works out at approx 303 US gallons, which is 'only' 2.4xGPH I dont want a lot of fast...
