    Ok, so I went to my Nan's from Sunday-Thursday and come back and on Friday, realise there's something wrong with my Silver tipped tetras. Firstly, I discovered one had a big white-fleshy-ulcer-thingy on its side. Later this fell off. This has left a hole in the side of the fish, some of the...

This is annoying because it uncovers the gravel I put in there and shouldn't have, but I thought it'd create...

    Cory With One Eye.

    Ok Yesterday I had to move all my fish to one tank for a day since I was setting up my new tank. My Yo Yo Loach was very shocked at this and he kept burying himself the whole time in fear / madness / insanity. Anyway I think during the night he must have picked one of my Sterbai's eyes out...

    What should I fill my filters with? They are filtering a 120l. Juwel filter is going to have a combo of coarse and fine sponges. I don't know if any of the others are needed, if so tell me. Fluval 104 I'm not sure about, I'm wanting to stick to fluval media as it's easier and available. I...
