Heyy, I bought 2 fantail goldfish in april 08 they lived in my 21litre fish tank then i upgraded to an 88litre when i knew the 21litre wasnt big enough. My parents are letting me have a bigger tank at christmas just wondering if the juwel rio 125litre is big enough for them? It will just be the 2 fantails and 3 apple snails.

Brilliant! I have an idea for cycling, I'm going to take out most of the current fish tank water leave room for the fish to swim in the old tank then switch over the media so both medias are mixed in the new filter then add some fish flakes then a week later add fish :)

you don't need to transfer the water
it carries less to no bacteria
only transfer the gravel,ornaments and filter media to make a jump start
on your cycle.
and just leave it running for a day then add the fish.
pics when done! :22:

Well I plan to get it off this site, http://www.seapets.co.uk/products/aquarium-supplies/aquariums/juwel-aquariums/juwel-rio-aquariums/juwel-rio-125-aquarium-and-cabinet-black.html thats the aquarium I'll be getting it comes with a filter.
Just hope its big enough for my goldies their whole life within it.
