    If you’re in England and a reasonable distance I’d do it for free. Top tip: start in the middle

    I’ve seen this mentioned the most times so probably a winner, thanks

    Tank Background

    Whatever works mate, I’m not really looking for it to stick as I clear tape the edges. It’s just so much brighter with the layer of moisture on the glass for the light to reflect.

    Tank Background

    I did instantly think surely it will smell but I didn’t see a single comment on it, I’m going to just presume it will definitely smell. There’s a few products available to do this but wasn’t sure if it was needed or not. Thanks guys, won’t be smearing oil on anything now lol. Although the water...

    Bristlenose Or Common

    A bristlenose will grow to like 4-6 inches. A common pleco will grow to about 2 feet, some have got to 3 feet long if that helps.

    Tank Background

    hi all, noticed that the colour of my background is twice as bright when it’s a little wet. Looked into this and saw that people use Vaseline or olive oil to get desired affect. Looked into both methods and I think the oil seems the best bet, but my question is what are the downsides to using...

    Dwarf Gouramis Question?

    Male alone I’d say 10 gallons realistically. As for breeding them, the surface needs to be very still and that’s where the bubble nest will be made and if the water has a strong ripple he won’t even bother.

    Nitrates is the end product with no nitrites or ammonia left, then water changes would keep nitrate levels down

    29 Gallon Tank Artificial Or Real?

    I’m not that knowledgable on lighting to be honest and wouldnt want to give you bad advice. But in my head as long as it’s an aquarium light then it should be fine? What was it doing to the tetras?

    Beginner Mistakes

    This might be a rare instance, but my first 6 fish I got were penguin tetras. After a week I added 5 male Guppies to the tank thinking they would all get along. Turns out the 6 tetras killed 4 of the guppy’s in 2 days. I wouldn’t have knew if I didn’t see them doing it. They were ramming into...

    29 Gallon Tank Artificial Or Real?

    Start with the beginner plants like java fern and amazon sword, those kinda plants. Get some root tabs for them and you should be fine. The benefits outweigh the draw backs if any really of a planted tank but that’s my opinion. As for the light being too bright for the neons can you not adjust...

    10 Gallon Tank Will This Filter Provide Enough Biological Media?

    The litres per hour when it comes to filtration is not relevant in terms of producing good bacteria. If you have a 100 gallon tank and use a filter which suits a 50 gallon tank then it will be fine at cooing with 1 fish. If you have a 10 gallon tank and the filter says it’s good for that size...
