    Heron Took Whole Pond In One Night

    I live in the United Kingdom so no raccoons around here!! That’s what I thought as the heron I saw wasn’t too large. Our shed was recently ransacked of all the powetools too so the fish possibly could’ve been stolen.

    Help Bristlenose Pleco About To Pop!!??!!

    Yes, I feed sinking pellets for the rest of the fish and I notice a few of them do get down to the bottom. I previously thought this may of even the problem that they are eating too much protein so I haven’t fed any of the other fish since yesterday.

    Help Confused About Hard And Soft Water

    The water in my area is normally very hard as it leaves lots of hard water marks on the glass of my aquariums. My question is this: I’m breeding black chin livebearers and I was wondering if having a large piece of wood which appears to be giving off tannins will lower the hardness of the water...

    Question Overstocked?

    The ones I got, a few have deformed tails and rounded off heads and things. I think it’s partly due to so much inbreeding that these types of problems may sometimes arise and fish end up with weakened immune systems and deformities as there is no natural predators who would be able to remove the...

    I’ve really started taking a liking to harlequins now. About two years ago I got 6 and after complications with tank mates, I only had one left.

    I have a 160litre planted aquarium with 18 harlequin rasboras in it. I use an 800lph external filter and a 2000lph internal wavemaker for some flow. Is this overstocked? If not, is there a way for me to get the rasboras to actually school up together?

    Question Small Bichir Or Discus?

    Senegal bichirs are the smallest bichir I believe. I had one for a short while.... until my Oscar ate it :/ . But I enjoyed keeping it. Only downside is that when it gets bigger it’s only tank mates would have to be larger fish as they are predatory by nature. Personally I would go for discus.
