One step forwards, two steps back.
Filterfish, this thread is coming up to five years old.
Might want to make a new one!
Wasn't the gills was it? Those are segmented much like a centipede... Could be external or just more exposed than normal?
Just stumbled across this on the Daily Mail...
Few weeks... Just over a month now?
I moved into a house with my then girlfriend in... 2010 possibly...? She had a fish tank, few danios in a 10gallon... really badly looked after. She came home...
Any chance of the fish store taking some back? Or do you know anyone who might re-home a few?
Cats will tend to not return to an area if they're severely frightened off... As we know though - all cats are different and nothing is a guaranteed success.

Would be a shame if they started digging it up and messing around with it...
Seems like whatever it is, it's a little ecosystem now.
Why on earth do we need more soggy antique rubbish?
Just as a side note.
I've seen a few fish shops selling cardinal tetras under "Jumbo tetra", "Jumbo neon or "XL Tetra"... etc etc.
Cardinals being bigger than neons... could be some of those....

I assumed that would probably be the case, just wanted to double check.
I'd be "re-mineralising" with http://www.jbl.de/en/aquatics-freshwater-products/detail/5103/jbl-aquadur . If that makes any...

Just getting a few things ironed out before I get the RO unit installed...
Trying to future proof myself a bit so have decided to store my RO water in something like a large water butt. I'll just...

Just as a side note it's probably worth mentioning that hibernating a turtle in the fridge - doesn't seem to be a case of just chucking it in there and leaving it for six weeks.
I was interviewed for a job at Pets at Home, probably the largest network of pet stores in the UK. They said to us all that it would be great to hire someone who knew something about fish as there...
All covered! Talldutchie recommended JBL Aquadur and it seems to have good reviews across the board so have some of that in my bookmarks, ready for purchase. I would mix with tap water but the...

As someone who has worked in kennels and rescue/re-homing in particular I can see why "no kill" policies don't work... But those numbers are insane. There were not valid enough reasons that ALL those...

Always with the hunched backs...
I can at least see, if not follow, the appeal of bringing out new colours and markings. But why all the humps and bumps? Again it just looks ill.
Unfortunately it is. pH is around 8.5 and I've had nitrate readings straight from the tap that turned the test scarlet. To my eye it looked around 80+. Other main concern was that those nitrates were...
Again it was just the surprise of how random it was compared to my expectations, threw me off course. Nitrites where there and suddenly not and then ammonia was back and then that vanished. Not the...
To the tank?
I've been filling a bucket with a water and then dechlorinating the bucket, using enough dechlorinator to treat the tank or more (I know Prime can be used at 5x the usual dosage...
Could always go half and half... brackish!
Best of both worlds... kind of...
I don't usually test for nitrates as I get a varying level from my tap water constantly due to living in the land of farmers. (Moving over to RO soon!). Other problem is I can't for the life of me...

The problem there is the demographic.
A lot of people (not everyone!!) don't go there because they want to begin the months long process of research, cycling, stocking responsibly, testing water...
I took your advice, continued testing and water changing as I had been. Continued to use the Prime and done exactly as I was doing before.
12 hours after my last water change and I'm getting zero...

Well. That's certainly a type of fish... Can't believe they actually sell. If I saw a fish looking like that - I'd assume it was ill.
What is with us humans having to change everything around us?
That's fine, as long as nothing I've been doing has caused this and I'm going to wind up in an endless cycle of me screwing it up before completion. Only from the angle that I'm quite aware that my...
