Re: Temporary fish rehousing #121
Thanks for the reply. I never even gave the filter media in the tank a thought. Now I'm stumped as to what to do as the filter media is made to fit the internal Juwel filter. I'll need to see if there's a external Juwel filter I could buy to fit the media. Going to be expensive I feel. Probably a stupid question but would it be possible to put the filter media into a breeding tank and float it in the water in the temporary container to stop the fish getting to it & keep the good bacteria in the media this way?

Re: Temporary fish rehousing #122
I have a spare heater I can use in the plastic container but I don't have a filter as the filter in my tank is internally fixed. Would my fish be safe to be kept in this plastic container for approx 24-48 hours without a filter whilst the silicone is setting or would I need to buy a external filter that I'll probably never use again when I move my fish back into the tank?

Temporary fish rehousing #123
Hi!
Looking for a bit of advice. Part of my Juwel aquarium cliff background which covers the filter housing has detached and unfortunately I'm going to have to empty the water from the tank to refix the background onto the filter housing with silicone sealant. The Sealant needs approx 24 hours to set properly, so I have ordered a large plastic container roughly the same size as my tank to transfer the water & temporarily re-home my fish whilst the background is being re-fixed.....continued on next post...........................

Bloated Angel #124
Hi,
My angel looks bloated and appears to be constantly gasping for air. I think it may be constipated. It looks as if I've caused the problem myself as it was struggling to digest the large pellets I'd been feeding it. It is still eating at the moment so I've changed it's diet to much smaller pellets and freeze dried Daphnia but it's very lethargic and not moving from the corner of the tank,is constantly gasping for breath and has a bloated belly. Is there anything anyone can suggest that I could try as it's not looking good?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Help. The aquarium heater was turned off. #125
Thanks for the fast reply! The Marina heater I currently have is unajustable and the temp is automatically set at 26 deg C so think I'll take your advice and purchase a new one that can be adjusted manually. Cheers!

Re: Help. The aquarium heater was turned off. #126
Hi there!
1st time poster so please go easy. For some reason the plug for my small breeding tank heater has come partially out the wall socket and the heater has been switched off without me knowing, and I've no idea for how long. I have a dozen or so 2 month old Molly fry currently in the tank. Usually the heater is automatically set at around 25-26deg C, but when I noticed it was off yesterday the thermometer was reading only 19 deg C. I switched the heater back on and the red light was showing as normal, but this morning the temp has dropped even further to about 17/18 deg C. The breeding tank is only about 10 ltes and the heater I use is for a tank up to 17 ltes and usually heats the tank well. I'm worried that if the temp drops any further my fry will die. Apart from the smallest one of the fry, they seem to be swimming about as normal and looking for food. Will my fry survive the temp drop and do you have any advice that you could suggest? Would I be best to bag them up and move them into my main aquarium (currently set at 25 deg C) as I have a small floating hatchery container that floats at the top of the water that I could use to keep them in or would the rise in temp kill them?
