I'm going to be getting one of these soon and want to mod it.
If anyone has one of these cabinets with the shelf in the middle can you please do me a big favour and take some measurements for me....
Here is a pic of my tank with the powerhead at the botom. I've got another carbon/sponge filter - the the blue canister but that one is ok.
Thanks. Interesting - I didn't know that. I"ll get replacements and see what happens. Very annoying to come home and see the pump at the bottom of the tank :)
I've got a small tank with one of those power pumps that you stick to the side of the glass with those black suction cups. For the past few weeks the thing keeps falling down, at least once a week....
lol - yes. I was also thinking its survived a long time starving :)
Thanks - I'll looking into getting some drift wood. Off to the LFS :)
This morning I see my pleco died. :( Was about 4 years old and 30cm long.
I've been reading a few posts on how much people feed their plecos and now wonder if he starved to death :(((
Awesome. You people are geniuses :)
I looked up a pic of one and your spot on!! Thanks very much.
Another ID question :)
Not the greatest of pics but they don't keep still long enough for clear shots.
Its a freshwater fish, about 2cm long, fairly thin, with a black dot on the end of the...
Ok - thanks. I can see them being isolated for many many more months then :(
The only large fish I have is a pleco and a silver gourami, and 3 medium sized clown loaches.
The others are fairly small - red wagtail platy's, a few neon tetras and some rummy-nose tetras.
Apologies for cross posting but I originally posted in the wrong thread and no one seems to view that one (or has any answers)
A few months ago one of my red wagtails had babies. I only noticed...
Whoops...wrong category. A wagtail is not a betta! :)
Can the mods please move this.
A few months ago one of my red wagtails had babies. I only noticed one left - the others were probably...

Its just a separate container which hold's the fry so the other fish can munch him.
Going get a proper one tomorrow which will hold the pregnant fish in future.

thanks for the info. wow. 50 or 60 babies. that many!
I've searched high and low and only one little fellow has survived. :(
I've make a temporary breeding trap out of a 2L plastic coke bottle...

Thanks - I'll have a look at the shop tomorrow. Guess I'll just see what happens. Not sure when they were born but the other fish don't seem to be bothered/interested. I just wonder how many were...

Busy cleaning the tank and noticed one baby swimming around - a small red wagtail platy. Its about 4-5mm long.
I've got another non aggressive fish in the tank - neons, pleco, loaches.
I just had a new tank going for a few months and have the following fish:
3 x rummy nose tetra
3 x blue tetra
2 x tictoe barbs
2 x threadfin rainbow
2 x albino red fin shark
3 x red...
Looks like the rope fish is out then :(
Thanks - I think your spot on. I seem to recall the LFS saying something about threads :)
I've got a new 80 litre tank with
3 x rummy nose
3 x blue tetra
2 x tic toe bards
2 x Still to be identified
The LFS has a rope fish and a white eel (I think) which look really great.
Just bought a few fish for my new tank - I've remember all the names except for these ones:
Sorry, pics are not the greatest. Its a male...
Thanks - I'll use the bait trick to remove them.
I'll also have a look into using alum for any new plants I get.
From further reading up I think the reason why I haven't ever had any snails in...
Just got my second tank and am busying cycling it. Only got a few plants in so far.
For the first time I've seem snails appear in my tank from no where, so after reading up a bit I see they...

Thanks for the info. Looks like it back to the drawing board. Not yet sure on the fish I'm going to have so might not need the powerhead. Its my second tank so might try a different fish, not yet...

I've swapped it out for a 600l/h pump - much more respectable.
But now I've just realized I need a filter - these pump's don't have a filter in them - they are just powerheads.
So now do I need...
