    Yep I wouldn't do well. Strangely enough my cheat would be ok. Hayfever is brought on by native pollen. I'm fine on holiday! The heat would be too much though!

    LOL you should just chalk them up to odd British sayings. We'd just go along with it and be none the wiser. ;)

    Have you tried sourcing some local honey? The county I live in is rated the worst in the country for pollen. People around here eat a lot of local honey to build up an immunity to it. From what I hear it works rather well. Never been bothered with them myself.

    Psh, the hotter it is the better it is for me. I wouldn't run the AC at all but the wife needs it. Puts it on 72 and I have to sleep with a comforter at night.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    I have heard about it and dismissed it, I'll be honest.

    I don't like honey but I will give it a go!

    I've heard the same thing around here about honey. I get seasonal allergies, as well. They're pretty terrible in VA.
    Adventures in Aquaria - The KevinVA Story

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Have a fish problem? Fill out and post this completed questionnaire in the General Aquarium Forum, when you start a new thread.

    Late to the party again - can't keep up with you guys. But I'm reading these threads all the time.

    I've never run a QT tank (she ducks), so take this with a grain of salt, I guess. But from all of the suggestions and things I've read it seems to me that the easiest thing would be to keep a sponge filter running in a main tank all of the time. When the need for the QT arose, transfer the cycled sponge filter to a bare bottom tank, add a bunch of silk plants and other artificial hide-aways. At the end of the QT, the sponge filter can go back in the main tank, the artificial deco cleaned and stored away with the QT tank until the next time.

    Knowing myself and my affliction, if I had a fully planted tank as a QT it would soon be home to permanent inhabitants and I would be looking for another QT tank.

    Oh, and thanks for the tip about the honey. I'll mention it to my son who suffers from seasonal allergies, some years worse than others.

    It's ok sue! Thanks for the input

    The whole QT thing *sigh*

    I may it may not continue with it. Not decided. I could get a new sponge filter and add it to the main though. Would fit better than my hob...

    Your not wrong though, if it looked good then I would just stock with CPD and coolies. Not that I have thought about it.....
