Screws on top of aquarium stand #51
I’ve just bought a second-hand stand but there are screws in each corner - am I supposed to screw the tank to the stand? I thought I just put it on top, free-standing. Maybe this stand was designed for a particular tank but my tank doesn’t have any holes to slot onto these screws.

If it IS ok to just place the tank free-standing on top then I’m also in trouble as there is no way to remove the screws!

Sturgeon lying upside down at bottom #52
Bought two sturgeon about a week ago( both approx 15cm), one seems quite active and swims along the side of the pond, whereas the other generally lies upside down at the bottom and rarely moves unless prompted to. Have 2 filters and 2 aerator in the pond and 3 goldfish with multiple plants. Regular feeding of both sturgeon food and fish pellets.
Really worried about the one that is lying upside down, anyone able to give information on possible issues?

Re: Dying fish #53
Thank you once again for your help. It seems that with the cycling learning curve we neglected to consider the other factors. We'll certainly take a look at the links and generally do more research before adding more suitable fish.

Re: Damaged aquarium hood #56
On tanks with no hood/lid I use a plastic condensation tray like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-x-Supa-Co ... 5d3cec:g:REkAAOSw7aBeH1RB or a piece of polycarbonate and cut to fit, and use these to position it: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-Aquarium ... c5daa3:g:FWIAAOSw6Kpc7iiS For lighting something like this is good https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/ ... tle_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Damaged aquarium hood #57
Hi please help if possible
I bought a 64litre interpet aquarium 2 years ago and because I didn’t get a water condenser cover the lights have just blown up today and the inside hood looks Completely ruined, I tried to buy a replacement hood but they are out of stock for the same one on the interpet site and cost the same as a new one anyway. Question is

Can I just remove the attached hinged hood altogether and buy some sort of glass/plastic cover? What would be the name for this?

Can I buy some sort of clamped lighting to attach to the aquarium? Or is this not recommended? I am really at a loss what to do but I really don’t want to get rid of my aquarium as my fish are happy and content, please help and many thanks for your answers and recommendations in advance

Dan

Re: 140 litre tank how many fish #58
Lovely tank.

This article http://injaf.org/articles-guides/gene ... ing-fish-stocking-guides/ covers the key issues and ought to be helpful for understanding why the answer to your question is not straightforward.

The good news is that you have plenty of time to do your research while preparing the tank for the fish https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... hless-cycling-article.htm

It's also worth establishing whether you have soft or hard water so that you can choose fish whose requirements match those of your water. If UK-based, your water supplier will have details in CaCO3 and German degrees hardness on their website for your postcode.

Re: Dying fish #60
I'll need to be brief, but just a few points:
* the fish that went through the fish-in cycle might still survive, so don't become too disheartened or give up hope just yet;
* previous comment about where you'll find your water hardness figures still applies - this is particularly helpful for choice of future fish;
* previous comments about potential reasons for the various species of fish not having survived or not doing well going forwards still apply - with the addition of platies being hard-water fish, so won't do well if your water is soft (this species hadn't been mentioned before);
* local fish/aquatic shop advice, and online advice, can vary greatly - the links previously provided are reputable resources, though.
Hope that helps for you going forwards, in conjunction with the ongoing monitoring of water quality and additional/larger water changes to address that if/as required. Best of luck.
