++ That link is pretty cool.
I am so pleased with how easily it has gone with just a little bit of advice. I know its not the end of the challenges but to see such happy fish is so enjoyable.

I thought I would add a little to this about water temp.
A good rule of thumb is 2:1, 2 cold to 1 hot. Boiling water in this ratio usually makes around body temp (37c). That's going to be a little...

Thanks for all the info on cycling.
Yesterday i made the choice to do a 60% water change (quite chuffed that I can still make 27 degree water by hand), Leaving the lights off since then. I Still...
Ill read it thanks, i think i read somewhere that with fish it was quicker. I will defiantly check out the posts.
No its not in direct sunlight for any part of the day and the room inst the...

I had been looking at putting a few fish in it this weekend to cycle the tank but I wasn't expecting such green cloudy water.
The filter start (by...
