    Aqua One rubbish

    Aqua One are rubbish, they are a cheap and useless brand that make products which last weeks instead of years. You get what you pay for, Ehiems are expensives and also the best. Never get the cheap option!

    Pictus Cat tankmates

    Mate plecos have a mouth designed for rasping algae off rocks they don't attack and kill fish, the pictus catfish has a big mouth designed to swallow small prey.

    Lighting too Low

    Woah info overload, Thankx Isabella and atmmachine for your help. From your information I will get the twin light setup, and will get the bulbs with ratings under 10 000k. At the moment I have no idea what it is now as the bulb came with the light thingy. I do use liquid ferts every 2 weeks or...

    Lighting too Low

    That would be a great idea if my light was attached to a hood. Unfortunately I don't have a hood just glass lids and a separate light unit.When I was buying it I knew I should have gone for the twin set up. oh well lesson learned. Just like when I had a 12 gal and 6 months later upgraded to a 17gal.

    Bumblebee Catfish

    Ithink mines an asian one so I don't think I would be of any help. They only thing I would suggest has already been suggested by Dino. Maybe that bumblee was a sick one or the place had way different parameters to you. Because I find most catfish to adapt quickly to new environments.

    Pictus Cat tankmates

    At full size there is no doubt that a pictus could eat a serpae tetra but at the size that you buy them I would say it would be ok. However the pictus may well outgrow your tank. THey are extremely active fish. Platies should be ok the larger they are the better of course. Careful with buying...

    Lighting too Low

    I'm back again, In my 40 gallon I have a bad algae problem, and I was thinking as I only have 1 light tube of 30W in it and as the plants don't grow as good as in my smaller tank does anyone reckon that as the plants cannot grow good enough the algae takes over as the more dominant and has the...

    Red tail shark color is fading

    She might have got a scare because red-tails colour increases to a brighter deeper red as they age not the other way around. Should be ok in a few days.

    Dwarf Gourami Question

    They rarely sell females here only ever males, nice looking fish. If you keep more than 1 male you need lots of hiding places and a larger tank so they can establish territories etc.

    Dwarf Gourami Killing Other Fish?

    The main reason if one is picking on another if you have two is that they are both males and they fight, but u have a psyco fish mate

    Power filter (HOB) or Canister?

    You guys are lucky though because prices here are like double yours even when you convert the US$ to Aussie$. A HOB may have trouble filtering such a tall tank mind you, compared to a canister, but just take the advice of these people they know.
