I have a male and female dwarf Gourami in a 110l tank. The male has recently partially changed colour from a pinky colour all over with stripes to having a blue stripe underneath and along part of...

Thanks for the help

I went back to the shop and they don't stock any other tubes in the small size and they couldn't get one for at least a week possibly two. I will carry on and use the 18000K for now but should I...

Great thanks. Bloody shop manager doesnt know what hes talking about. He apparently has several of his own tanks let alone the ones they look after in the shop yet giving out bad advice. Back to the...

Ah bugger. Typical . . . . . shop giving out wrong advice yet again. Just checked my 100L tank and that has the a 3ft power-glo 18000k. Should I be thinking about changing this one to?

Ive just bought a T8 power-glo 18000K 25w. Its the only one they had in stock that will fit the size of tank.

ok thanks. I will do a temp perspex lid which can then be used as a template for replacing with glass.
10-31-2012, 10:45 PM
Im probably going to make a cover out of perspex and fit below the lid so I can fit a lamp inside the lid above the perspex. I need to know what wattage, colour etc I should be looking for. Some of...

Is a T5 just a type of fluorescent tube? If so I could keep my eyes open for a starter unit and clips for the underside of the lid and by a short tube. What wattage tube should I aim for, for low to...

Hi, Ive just bought a cheap 45 litre Aqua one tank as an isolation tank but also to double up for growing a few basic low to medium light plants.
There is no light in the lid or light screen....

Water ph is 7.2 and im keeping tetras, guppies, peppered corys and male plus female dwarf guorami. Water is soft. I have real and fake plants plus bog wood in the tank.

Ok thanks. Shame really coz theres several really nice looking feature pieces of rock. I will have to keep on looking.
Out of interest can it be cleaned with mild bleach and soaked in several lots...

Hi Guys Im looking for some nice rock to put in my tropical freshwater aquarium tank and found some sea rock for sale at a cheap price. Its been sat in a shed for a few months and wondered if I could...

Hi Guys got another question. All seems to have settled down now. PH7.2 with soft water, ammonia 0, nitrite 0 and nitrate 0 before my last water change. These readings were taken 3 days after a 50%...

I will test the tap water and leave adding anything for a few weeks til everything settles down. Filter is an interpret PF3 and tank is 100L. Specs say filter is good for tanks up to 136litres. Got...

Youre right about my water it is very soft. Should I add the crushed coral to my current gravel? And is there a particular one I should go for as there are loads on the net. Im in the UK
10-13-2012, 09:34 PM
Looks like it was the ammonia level even though it was only a smidge above 0. Done another 25% water change and now the fish all seam more happy and buzzing around the tank again and haven't lost any...

there was a couple inches of water left in the gravel and filters were still damp but not wet. From what you're saying im guessing it dried out too much. Im using aquacare water conditioner and...

Thanks, Im using liquid API master test kit and when I reset the tank up several weeks ago now I lightly rinsed the filters in tank water. Only lightly cleaned the gravel (tank was running for a year...

Ive been told by a shop that I should add a small teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to increase the ph. Is this a good idea?
10-11-2012, 09:16 PM
Ok Thanks, Ammonia level maybe 0 as its hard to tell. It looks like its pos just off zero but doesnt look like the next level up of 0.25ppm. Will try a water change and see what happens. Also just...

Took the Betta back yesterday and al seemed more calm and relaxed in the tank last night and now had a guppy and tetra die today. Tested the water again ph has dropped a little to 6.2, ammonia is...

Unfortunately I only have the one tank at the mo and thats cost me around £400 so far even with the free tank, filter and heater. Think the betta will have to go back for now. I reckon I will have to...
10-08-2012, 09:56 PM
Yep thats what Ive got, one very brightly coloured male and one silvery grey female.
Water tests were done with ph 7.2, ammonia 0, nitrite 0 and nitrate almost . Sounds like the betta needs to go...
10-08-2012, 09:40 PM
why do i need to return one gourami? I have one male and one female not two males.
I have read cycling and it says there I can add fish at 1-2 weeks. The tank wasnt completely new setup either as my...
