hi guys,

I am looking to make my first tank purchase i am keen on the fluval roma 200, where is the best place to purchase this.( I am open to other tanks if anyone can reccomend) I seen one with cabinet for £399 but its out of stock. I am desperate to get myself a tank and start the process of cycling the water.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I plan on buyin external filter and anything else i need. I was planning in running tue internal you get with the fluval 200 and purchaing the 206 external. Not 100% sure if this would be ideal but was considering it. The main thing i am looking for is good value for money.

Ok so it's a 50 gallon that is around 480 usd if you are fine with the price it's up to you, but honestly, fluval makes their products over priced, if that's fine with you then you should get it.

Not really, it's hard to beat the quality of fluval items. The only problem is the price, but if you are willing to spend that much it's a great deal. As for the external filter; I don't think you would need it because in the description it states that it has an internal filter built in I think.

Yeah i think i will go with it because the tank looks great.

I dont really know the best places to shop in the uk though. I only do a google search and see what comes up.

My thought process regarding the external filter was it would be better to run both but i dont have any knowledgee on this i am just assuming. I have much to learn but i cant wait to build my knowledge.

I have purchases the tank today. Fluval Roma 240. I am looking at substrate what are the reccomendations and how many inches of susbtrate would suffice. I want to get only a couple of real plants and i will get a few fake ones to balance it out.


Was thinking on pea gravel maybe 2 inches but i think I would need something else for plants to grow. Any information i can get i am greatful for

Thanks.
