    When do I change my carbon filter??

Usually there are at least...

    Air Pumps and CO2

    HI I don't know what currency you use the ones that I buy are $2 for 12 feet of tubing the air pumps I have bought didn't come with any tubing but I'm sure some do.

    Air Pumps and CO2

    Hello I think I have the answers that your looking for if your tank isn't heavily planted I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    Breeding ghost shrimp

    I keep them as pets but I would suggest that you get some snails for the puffers, what kind do you have. It my be because I don't like snail but I do like shrimp, they are really cool to watch ghost shrimp don't need salt, they don't need a heater since they survive in ponds but filtration or...

    Moving House - Advice?

    I haven't done one of those but I have heard of bagging the fish and sticking them in coolers to keep temperature. My advice try to get in before you move and set up a tank at the new place if you can.
