Re: compatible fish? #11
from thoes pictures it looks liek you have a pair of sucking loach there. they can be very aggressive as they mature so watch for round open wounds on other fish, they loaces may need to be segragated. i'm not 100% on the fish but thats waht it looks like to me.

Re: Quarantine Tank procedure and set up? #14
All i have is a food safe toy chest i leave teh filter running in my main tank and a small heater able to heat the amount of water i put in the chest. it is then stored in teh shed and cleaned with boiling water and rinsed with old tank water before being filled the heater and filter added and then adding teh new stock. to date i havent had a problem but i'm not taking teh chance.

Re: Dont Shout! #16
Rite the bi-orb seems like a goer then i have a small sponge filter to go in the middle was just going to have the old stick on filter untill i could sort out a home made canister filter out of a food container and a submersable pump but hey ho i cant find a pump small enough as of yet. going to go for pea gravle and sand on top for the substraight or even just sand. some short twisted valis (already have this plant no idea on its id i'll post a pic when i start the blog) and some hair grass and java moss on rocks or wood should do for now. but at the moment the sponge filter is running in the 90ltr to help it mature whilst i do more research in teh shrimp themselves.

bit of history on the Bi-orb and why i got it lol told a frient that it was a death trap for the 3 goldies he had in there for 18 months still less than 2"in body length, took the lot off of him the goldies are now in a relatives 4ft waighting till spring to go in a friends pond not long then they will be joining around 20 or so other goldies in what can only be described as a swiming pool lol
and i was lumbered with the orb so a project was sure to ensue the girlfriend wanted celestial dianos but she got a new pair of shoes and i get my shrimp hehe.

watch for updates.

Re: Have I missed anything? #19
Haha should have twigged that thought that thats like 3-5 grains deep other wise lol to be honest i have no idea if plants will grow well with exposed roots. but i supose as long as there is enough nutrition in the water then i think they's do fine might be worth PM'ing EagleC hes the foum plant advisor.

Re: Have I missed anything? #20
Whilst your wrighting a list you wil want to consider a means of quaranteening your fish before they are put into your new tank. (after your initila bunch of fish that is anyways.

i can sugest a large food safe container at least 30 ltrs you should be able to find these in tesco asda wilko's etc. a small filter whos media should be kept in with your current filter untill ready for use. and a small heater if your going for tropical fish.

3-5mm seems very shallow for the gravle i'd use at least 10mm to 15mm to allow room for your plants to bed in
