    Feeding - How Often

    Cheers Basil. I've never known fish to actively seek food as much as Tigers. It's as if they are starving every time to you go near the tank. What's more impressive is there sheer appetite. Mine are still small too, picked them up as juveniles less than a month ago. Growing quick mind. Out of...

    Holiday - Feeding Concerns

    Just had a quick look on Amazon. Only ones we had seen were in LFS and were £30 quid a pop ($38) at their cheapest. My sister hasn't gone away like I anticipated so she will come and feed them on the Tues/Weds. May bite the bullet and ask my old man if he'll feed every other day for us. I was...

    Holiday - Feeding Concerns

    It's a one off to be honest. At most 3 times a year. It's why I won't go automatic feeder, can't justify the expense. Will have a look at feeding blocks. Thanks.

    Feeding - How Often

    How often do people feed their tiger barbs? Straightforward one I know. Only I've struggled to find any thing more definitive than twice a day. I've already cut it too once a day but interested to know what people do.

    Holiday - Feeding Concerns

    Now I dare say this is a questioned asked regularly but I'm going to ask again purely in case of stock effecting it. I go away on Sunday morning, will be back Friday evening more than likely. Have gone away Mon-FrI before and my 90L community was fine. So they're not a concern. However my new...

    Game Of Thrones Season 8!

    It's like reading the Harry Potter books and then watching the films... They just make up what they want and throw it all over the shop.

    Have You Ever Had A Celebrity Communicate With You On Social Media?

    Percy Montgomery (South African International Rugby Player) once mouthed a choice expletive at me, even took his gum shield out. He was playing at the time, on the pitch. I was about 14. Back when social media didn't exist obvs. Was more recently told by Neville Southall (Ex International...

    Game Of Thrones Season 8!

    I've got a 4K TV. Granted it's one of the first generations (was a splitting up with my ex present for myself). What I've also found is that you generally will notice a big difference when switching channels let alone anything that's poor in quality, this GOT was definitely poor in quality from...

    Cycle Question

    It potentially could have stagnated if there was effectively no water passing through the sponges. But I have read about dormant BB so will wind my neck in and let the experienced heads tell you.

    Filter Swap Help

    Cheers guys. I had a bit of a disaster, total external newbie and it showed... surprised I didn't drown to be honest... Shut the pipes off, then unclipped the lid and pulled it off, thought the water was never going to stop! (Wet lesson learned). Anyway, I managed to move all the media into the...

    Filter Swap Help

    So I've been running two filters since Friday. An APS EF1200 And my newly bought Aquamanta 300EFX In my stupidity I read something about running the filters together for 72 hours before removing the old filter. Luckily I thought it didnt quite add up so researched some more. Clearly my...

    Sh899ys Next Step (in The Right Place)

    Purchased the new filter today. Plumped for an Aquamanta EFX300 which is what the father in law runs so I have someone on call should anything happen. Plus it came with a 4 year warranty which is a bonus. Running alongside the APS1200 for now, will remove said APS on Monday evening. Also...

    Tank Size / Numbers

    I've read contradicting information on YoYo loach tank size. Out of interest what is the general consensus on here for minimum tank size and recommended numbers? I've read people suggesting 40 gallon is big enough, others saying 75 gallon minimum. Then read 6 is an ideal minimum, 5 at a push...

    Sh899ys Next Step (in The Right Place)

    Will add 2 similar plants to the one in the middle. Hopefully hide the heater as much as possible. All in due time. I had planned on getting the scaping of it right before adding fish but we all know that's a pipe dream lol
