    60 Gallon Tank Fluval Roma 240 spray bar

    So, I'm sure other people have adapted their filter output on the the fluval 306, but for some background. I have the Fluval Roma 240 (2016 version), which has a fluval 306 external filter where the input/output comes up through the bottom of the tank. I'd like to change the output to a spray...

    15 Gallon Tank Should I try betta again?

    So I'm almost certain the answer to this will be a resounding yes, but I thought I'd ask anyway :P Should I try a betta again? I had one towards the end of 2016 but it all ended in disaster! I got my boy from a breeder on ebay, he was beautiful. Unfortunately I can't find any decent pictures...

    60 Gallon Tank Goldfish vs tropical fish

    So I'm in the process of deciding stocking for my fish tank, and ButtercuptheOranda brought up the suggestion of goldfish. Now this has crossed my mind multiple times, but as I already had tropical fish (and still have a few), I've never really looked into it fully. If I were to go ahead, I...

    60 Gallon Tank Colourful planted tank to interest a toddler

    So I've found myself in a position where I have a pretty much empty planted tank. I have minimal fish in the tank at the moment, so now seems like the best time to do a restock and essentially start from scratch. At the moment I have: 1 Harlequin Raspbora 1 Bumblebee platy 4 Kuhli loach...

    Ordering fish in bulk online

    So I'm not sure I'm posting this to the right place, but I'm not sure where else this topic would fit. I'm currently planning the restock of my tank. Due to having a 5 month old, I'm finding it difficult to find time to visit my local LFS and look at the fish there, so I was considering...

    60 Gallon Tank Stocking suggestions...here we go again!

    So I've asked for stocking suggestions so many times in the past for my planted 60 gallon(Fluval 240) - with a fluval 306 canister filter. I had a baby about 5 months ago, and unfortunately my fish tank suffered a little bit. I'm back on top of it now, and I'm starting to restock the tank, with...

    Single Colour Or Mixed?

    So, I'm getting some platys, yay! I'm going to be getting 4-5 of them, 1 male and 3/4 females. My next dilemma, having decided which fish to get is whether it would look better to have a single colour variation e.g. only sunset platy, or a mix. What do you think? Take your vote

    So I'm upping the number of plants in my tank, so I think I need to get a powerhead to make sure there is still enough circulation. This is my tank now: And this is the plan: I have another thread that explains what all the plants will be, but my question is about the powerhead. On the...

    Plant Plans - What Do You Think?

    Not sure whether I should have posted this in the plant section but...while I'm deciding on stocking for my tank I've been looking at how it is set up. I recently rearranged it when I had to move the tank over a few feet and I don't like it. It feels too to heavy and restricts swimming space...

    Cosmo Is Sick And I Don't Know What To Do!

    My betta Cosmo has been steadily going down hill this year and I don't know what to do now. He still has an appetite but he can't swim to get the food so I have to put him in a floating breeder and direct the food straight at him for him to get it. I've been doing 50% water changes everyday...

    All My Fish Are The Same Size

    I've had my 60 gallonup and running for around 2 years now, but I'm finding that I'm not finding it particularly interesting at the moment. It seems as though when I'm looking at it, all my fish are around the same size so boring draws my eye or stands out. Even the Guppies blend in. My stocking...

    Feeling discouraged, need new ideas for Betta tank!

    So, in my other post I had chosen my betta and my theme - a ruined Roman Colosseum with loads of plants in a 15 gallon and a fish called Spartacus. Unfortunately, the Colosseum arrived and there is no way I could put that in with a betta. It is so rough that he would be shredded in no...

    T8 bulbs - What do you think?

    So I got some new bulbs to replace my ones I got last year. They are T8 bulbs and I wanted to get ones that were good for plants so I got Arcadia Original Tropical and Arcadia Freshwater.
