Re: Tank on a first floor? #22
I had the same worry as you Crunchie - i'm living in a 1940's 1st floor flat and i've not had a problem with my 215L tank.

My housemate put it in fairly simply laymen's terms - if you're happy for approximately 3 or 4 men to stand where you want the tank, then a fish tank will be fine; so far so good!

Even the bath when full probably weighs more than my tank and that's on 4 legs and not spread evenly across the floor.

edit - ha! I just noticed the tangent on the thread Suey2 posted to

Re: Rabbit keepers #23
I had a house rabbit for 8 years - he was such a character!

As long as they're not locked up most of the day you can probably get away with a smaller cage than the usual rabbit hutch guidelines (as these assume the rabbit will be spending all, if not, a lot of time in it)

Taken from: http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/housing.html#size
Quote:

What size cage is best?
Bigger is better! A cage should be at least 4 times the size of your bunny when he's entirely stretched out--more if he is confined for a large amount of the day. Cage sizes also should be decided in conjunction with the amount of exercise time and space the rabbit has. One guideline to go by is at least 8 square feet of cage time combined with at least at least 24 square feet of exercise space, for 1-2 rabbits, in which the rabbit(s) can run and play at least 5 hours per day. You can build or buy your rabbit a two-storey "condo" with the floors connected by a ramp--they love this!


Rabbits do love platforms (either to sit under and snooze or as a great vantage point) so try and get something for them in that department.

Try http://www.rabbit.org/care/living-with-a-house-rabbit.html for general info as they have everything you could possibly need on that site!

Re: river monsters.. #24
Yep I saw it; they were some crazy teeth! I certainly would be wary about letting kids anywhere never the water having seen the result of the attack the poor fish they were using for bait!

Pretty sad the fish died in the end though but at least it will be shared around and not wasted.

Re: Quarantine #25
I've had them 6 days now

Sadly the one I suspected had an infection died last night. He seemed fine in the morning and water tests for Ammonia & Nitrite came back 0 but I did a cautionary water change anyway *sigh*

Other fishy is looking bright and lively so fingers crossed nothing else goes wrong as i'm starting to feel a bit like a grim reaper for Goldies at the moment.

Quarantine #26
Right...my foray into tropical are on hold at the moment as the new 60L 'nano' has been turned into a quarantine tank for 2 baby goldfish

After the last disaster (protozin resistant ich) i'm determined to conduct a loooong quarantine and make sure i spot anything before they go in the big tank.

So:
* Will 4 weeks be long enough?
* What should I be looking out for?
* one of them looks like they might have a bacterial infection (white and very stringy poop) - what's the best way of treating this?

They're so tiny I hope they grow in quarantine otherwise the 3 inch monsters in the big tank might be a bit of a shock for them!

Will post pics of the babies soon

Re: :( can't get rid of whitespot #30
Well - it looks like it's finally gone, I re-dosed with protozin as the lfs didn't stock Protazol and i didn't want to wait for it to arrive in the post.

The remaining 2 Goldies have a bit of fin rot but it's improving so i might do another big water change and add some eSHa 2000.

I feel gutted to lose 2 of the old ones though
