Thanks Tony that sounds awesome !! Could I perhaps postpone till around easter time? I am snowed under at the moment with work lol. Research is going well lol and ive discovered that damsel fish are probably a safe bet seeings as they are quite hardy though aggressive lol

Re: My goldfish can't stand the filter ! #34
Hi folks !

just to restore some of your faith in me lol -

I did turn the filter off ( huge mistake ) BUT

The air pump was always running ( and is located near the filter) so I therefore assumed that the pump would still get water passing through it. Thats why I made the decision to turn off the filter - have never done this in my tropical tank as I did realise the bad result it would have on the cycle.

Hope this helps to restore some of your faith in me lol

Re: What do you think of the biorb? #40
awesome ive seen a tank on ebay (may be too big to qualify as nano ) and the guy who delivers has just emailed (me no idea how much he charges though !! )
So I may be getting a tank very soon - the frantic reading begins - can anyone reccomend any books or sites ?

Thanks for your help - hope everyone had a good weekend :)
