    Ferg's Tanks

    God, not been on the forum again for ages!   So the tanks are now coming up to 6 years old, although can't say it is like above anymore..     The above is the most recent photo I have of the main tank (from last Christmas).  As you can see, it is very sparse of fish (Current residents are Big...

    Ferg's Tanks

    Thank you    Can't believe I've not been on here in so long again.     Here is a poor shot of the tank as it is now (10 months on or so).  I find it upsetting to look back, as you see how some plants have died off, done poorly or just gone completely.  Saying that, the most noticeable change in...

    Ferg's Tanks

    Some new images (not much change since the last shots mind).. not the best images. I just wish my giant crypts would grow at the back and cover the heaters!

    My Special Girl - Phoebe The German Shepherd

    I have been meaning to start this thread for years, (literally). Here is my German Shepherd Phoebe (Also referred to as Pheebz, Dweeb, Fifi ...the list goes on). She is quite a character and is well known (and loved) by everyone she meets, and this is why.. At the time, my sister was a...

    My New Seashell 60X18X24 Wdh

    I had those exact same silk plants for my tank, but I found in my setup they looked every bit as synthetic as they were. You've managed to create a setup were they look real, great job!

    We Just Bought A 1125 Liter (Almost 300 Gallon) Fish Tank!

    The tank is looking beautiful, love the wood. Those fish look really nice too, and how great that you can interact with your fish like this and hand feed them, I'm sure your family and friends come around for feeding time to watch :lol: :blush:

    Serpae Tetra Changing Colour..

    Thanks for the reply. I'll try, but with it being an active tank I rarely get a decent still of the small fish through the camera constantly refocusing :crazy: Perhaps that would make sense, there seems to be a frenzy of spawning going on at the moment, I've had Penguin tetra laying eggs, my...

    Serpae Tetra Changing Colour..

    Hello, I've noticed that one of my Serpae tetra has started to turn black, I just wanted to check that this isn't a disease. He seems fine, and it doesn't appear to be anything growing on his gills, yet the top of his head and lower body has started to go black in a similar colour to the black...

    What Do You Do With Your Dead Fishes?

    I put mine in the food waste recycle bin that we have.. Seems an ecological thing to do

    The Dream Tank

    I'm not sure how my tank would look, or what I'd have in it - but for it to be a dream tank, would mean that it was serviced and cleaned by someone else..would save me a lot of elbow grease for sure! :fun: I'd like to think, given the money, that I'd have several large fish tanks in different...

    All My Fish Are Showing Really Weird Behaviour

    They're at it again, and I was actually right as to why :lol: :rolleyes: Just about to turn the light off for the night, noticed the fish were 'queueing' in the bottom of the tank again, all facing one direction and stationary except for the Penguin tetra, who were jostling and sparring with...

    Ferg's Tanks

    I've started considering how to redo the tank, I think I'll aim to do this next year, around March or April (The tank will be 3 years old by then, so probably a good time for serious reworking and replacement of hardware). I've been good in that I've not bought any fish for a few months now, it...

    Ferg's Tanks

    Not posted on here for just over 4 months! Nothing much has changed, lost a few fish (most notably the keyhole cichlid, although as it was re-homed I've no idea how old it was) and a couple of plants have pretty much lost the will to live (That, and my well placed moss on wood has virtually all...

    All My Fish Are Showing Really Weird Behaviour

    Hello, it has been a while since I've been on here. Just thought I'd ask a question as my fish are currently acting like never before. They're all crammed into the bottom corner of the tank in a tight pack, and then suddenly go into a frenzy every now and then. I can only think that perhaps...

    Ferg's Planted Journal

    Plants arrived this morning. I've mixed feelings about them, it seems that most of the more interesting plants I'd originally ordered were not in stock - I've mainly received a collection of crypts. Still, I've worked with what I've received and spent about 2 hours putting them in place (I'll...

    Not Sure What Has Gone Wrong!?!

    Hi all, bit of a dilemma! Fed my fish tonight at 8pm, all were fine and eating. Come to bed at 10pm and I had two dead barbs, all the rest were gasping. One barb seems to have blood around its mouth, the cory's were darting to the surface for air and I can't even see my algae eater. I don't...

    Setting Up New Large Tank

    Beautiful tank (looks like an ND Aquatics custom made tank??) I'd have loved to have had mine that size :grr: You have the benefit of having the established tank, I'd be taking the dirty media from that and giving it a good clean within the clean tank water, get some of that dirty waste...

    Ferg's Planted Journal

    Plants are due to arrive tomorrow (well, it says they've been dispatched) But by the sounds of the e-mail I won't be getting everything I've ordered, so worrying now as to what plants I will be getting :no: :/
