    All good advice - most of us learnt about cycling the hard way. Take the time to have a bit of a read through the various experiences of members - you'll get a good idea of which and how many fish...

    All males would be ok, they're not usually territorial, however if you do finish up with a female in there she's gonna be in all sorts of strife. I don't think you'd have an issue with babies though,...

    I think you'll be ok as long as your temp changes aren't too sudden - my tanks sit at around 32c daytime during summer and drop to 24-25c during the night with no ill effects, day/night difference...

    Fishkeeper's got a good point - you have the space and filtration for more fish, but it's a challenge to keep the betta happy, you need fairly placid fish without the nipping gene, or rehouse the...

    I don't think you need to worry about paint fumes, I'd just throw a sheet or something over the tanks to ensure you don't accidentally drip paint in them, and be careful if you do have to move them

    if you are not sitting on joists, and it moves when you walk past it may be a good idea to spread the load a bit - ie a sheet of ply or a pad of ply under each leg
