Still very new to this fishkeeping game, but after a slow start and some early casualties, my tank seems to have settled down.

So, I now have;

update 05/04/07

Found first silver shark dead at bottom of tank this morning :'(

Looks healthy, but dead, only unusual thing is a little redness under his belly.

Only thing unusual is that I gave the pleccy a slice of cucumber three days ago, but he diodnt eat it, the sharks did instead !

All other fish seem fine,

levels are;
Amonia 0 ppm
Nitrites 0 ppm
Nitrates 20 ppm

Yellow female guppy looks set to give birth any day now !

hi nimbus!!! sorry about your fish. do u mean bala shark by silver shark? i think 55 gallon tank is too small for 4 of them, they grow up to 13 inches.

cheers guys, shark loss was a bit sad, but the others seem fine now..

I did read about the size of tank needed for a bala shark, after I'd bought these ones.. So I'm not sure if they are that type after all.. they said they were 'silver sharks'
I did ask my LFS, ( its a big, ( non chain), well known and recommend one in the UK fish magazines), before purchase and they were adamant I had enough room, so I shall be asking again when I go in soon..

yellow guppy still not given birth !!

levels today are;
Amonia 0 ppm
Nitrites 0 ppm
Nitrates 10 ppm
