    Pipe Maintenance Affecting Water?

    So about four weeks ago I was changing my water like normal and noticed that there was a slight cloudiness and a white film on the glass. I was a bit concerned but assumed it would right itself with the next water change. To cut a long story short, next water change made it more cloudy. Then...

    Is Euthanasia Best At This Stage?

    Sadly he passed. He was a beautiful boy and so friendly. He was loved and he will be missed <3

    Is Euthanasia Best At This Stage?

    My betta has been ill for weeks now. At first we thought he was bored/lethargic so we tried to treat him for that by moving his tank decor around and giving him Indian Almond Leaves but there was no improvement and I saw he had a brown underbelly where he is normally black. A few days ago I QT...

    Contaminated Bloodworms?

    Yeah I've kept a jug of the water back so that I can test it when I'm not running around flailing/possibly take it in if it's off the charts or if any of my fish die because of this. I've had slight nitrite issues in food before, namely the powdered baby food but not on a level that would turn...

    Contaminated Bloodworms?

    I've just been woken up at 1am by a splash and a flop and had to put one of my fish back in the tank. After doing that and taking a second to panic I've since noticed my tank smells like death, my fish are freaking out and are all so pale they are nearly see through. My guppy females are all...

    70g Stocking Update

    Thanks I'll look into the chiller and make a post later about it but I can't do a sump, as it is I'm pushing it with water weight on an upstairs bedroom floor with the tank =/

    70g Stocking Update

    Researching ones that I can find in the U.K. and the only one I can find with a company I've actually heard of comes with this disclaimer; "This marine chiller is subject to ambient room temperature and other additional heat sources in the aquarium, such as lighting, filters, pumps, power heads...

    70g Stocking Update

    I've got the link open and I'll read the info in my break later but I should note I'm not from the US so I can't buy from that particular site, sorry.

    70g Stocking Update

    Never seen one sold here before. There's a few things on Amazon that look like canister filters or hoods that seem to have fans built into them, are either of those what you mean? I could set up a fan near the tank if it'll help but in my experience, when trying to cool the room down for...

    70g Stocking Update

    The only place near me that has a large range and takes in fish without question has a lot of diseased stock. Almost everything I've bought there has died within two weeks of buying it, except maybe 3 cherry barbs. The LFS I use now has a smaller range (the only pleco they do is the BN) and give...

    70g Stocking Update

    It's the lowest I can get it due to air temperature (around 80 at the moment), originally I was aiming for 75-76 but short of unreliably pouring in cold water or constantly putting ice bottles in, 78 is the lowest I can get it while maintaining a constant/stable temperature. The platy came to...

    70g Stocking Update

    I'm not too fussed about breeding or keeping the fry, my Guppy fry are left to nature since saving all of them led to different complications. I'm thinking possibly one male or I've had a good experience with a group of female gouramI that get along reasonably well. I guess I'll research what...

    70g Stocking Update

    All male platies (my current one is a male) and probably same sex cichlids to avoid the breeding issues

    70g Stocking Update

    Tank is 70g (280l) and 4ft in length. Other measurements have been hard to get because it's sunken into the stand with a wrap around wooden hood. Moderately planted and kept at 78f. Filters are a canister with the same specs as a Fluval 306 (it's a UK "own brand" filter) and a Fluval U4 internal...
