    East midlands area. They were the first fish I ever kept and I'm looking to get back into them. I kept multifasciatus but I'm interested in any. I'd rather buy private than use a store. many thanks

    Breeding Irrubecso Puffers?

    So i've not kept tropical fish for some time as I've been busy with my work, relationship breakdown etc. But as of recently I'm back in the game. Has anyone bred Irrubeco puffers while I was away? I'm of the assumption the trick is soft acidic water over java moss, 1 male to 2 females, and them...

    Parrot Info Wanted

    Saw one of these in a pet shop the other day, and fell in love with it. i'm not totally naive on birds, my girlfriends mum has a conure. Essentially I need talking out of buying a bird which would cost a small fortune.

    Id My Pike Cichlid

    It's about 4" long at the moment, i think it's a male C. vittata. What's the general consensus? He's skinny at the moment though, and I'm trying to get him feeding on bloodworms.

    Respiration In Fishes

    Is there a set equation for the respiration of fishes? I can't find one online. Is there one that can generalise for all fish? Are there seperate equations for those that have labyrinth organs etc?

    Zebra Blenny

    Any idea on these? All I'm aware of are that they have basic goby requirements, but are a little territorial. frozen or live foods only I guess? Would they be suitable for a system containing a moray eel, sleeper goby, trio of monos, an archerfish adn a small silver dat? I go between 1.005 and...

    My Killifish Showtank Journal

    So I have a bit of spare time on my hands (for once) so am putting together a journal of killifhs. Hopefully it will encourage other enthusiasts to keep killies as well, and maybe encourage some killi-egg swaps. Tank So the tank that I will be using is this one - A juwel Rekord 60. That's...

    Could This Light Work? I'm guessing that the light output is probably going to be awful. I admit I don't know a whole lot about planted tanks, but I imagine the standard lamp that comes with it would be the incorrect spectrum. Is there a different...

    Nothobrancus Eggersi

    I've read up on these and I want to begin keeping killifish. What I want to know though, is how to keep these. I know they're not recommended for a beginner, but I'm willing to put in the extra effort. I like to think I've kept some relatively difficult fish in the past (and still do). So the...

    The Tff Brackish Tank Setups Thread

    I remember when i was first starting out with a brackish tank, I really didn't know what setups looked like, or how people really looked after them. I didn't know what to expect it to look like, or what fish people kept together, so my idea for this thread is to post photos of your setup and...
