    Morning!

    Yes, firefly, I now know what filter I have, and knowing this, I am buying a new Dolphin F800 filter today... This tank is only temporary, and my fish will all move into a 500l tank in a few weeks, so I didn't give enough attention to the setup. Not very bright, I know...

    I again went to all fish shops in town over the weekend and ended up buying an extra bottle of AquaSafe, just because it had a complimentary test strip included. I hate test strips because it is not always as accurate and just gives a false sense of security, but never the less... I tested the water and it all came out just too perfect.
    NO3: 0, NO2: 0, GH: 16 (normal is 4-12, but I read it needs to be over 500 to cause damage?), KH: 6, pH: 7 CL2: 0.
    This particular shop is promising that they will get liquid tests in this week, but they have been promising this for some time now, so we will see...

    The good news is: All my fish are back to perceivable good health at the moment.

    Thanks to all for your help and support!!!



    My next post will hopefully be about my tank-mate choices for my new tank, and not sickly fish!
