Re: New tank, new fish #461
Thanks. Just read they needed it on a tropical fish online store. Never heard it either but thought i'd best be safe.

New tank, new fish #462
I'm about to purchase a new tank, probably about 30-50L. (Only a small one for my bedroom)

So after a fishless cycle i'm planning to have a plec and platies, maybe a few guppies.

I've never kept platies but read they prefer slightly brackish water.

I've never used aquarium salt before so any advice on this would be excellent, such as do i add it when i begin cycling or when i add the fish, and is salt okay with plecs.

Thanks guys.

kissing gourami #463
I love kissing gourami and since i am (hopefully) buying and setting up a new tank soon, was hoping to get a pair.

Unfortunately i haven't got much room and don't want to put them in a tank too small, get attatched and then have to give them away.

So was wondering ideally how many litres of water would be ideal for them.

Thanks

Tanks? #464
I'm thinking of upgrading my tank to a larger size, at the moments it's about 85 litres.

I can fit up to a five ft tank where my old one is, but i'm having trouble finding any at a reasonable price.

Can anyone make any suggestions?

King british safe water? #465
Someone on another site told me that king british safe water is okay for dechlorinating tap water.

Anyone know if this is true? As far as i can tell it says it removes ammonia and nitrate, but nothing about dechlorinating!

Power cuts #466
I've been having loads of power cuts in my area of late. (lasting around 5-10 hours)

Does anyone know how to keep the temperature up in the tank when there is no power? Mine dropped by about 5 degrees one night and i resorted to covering the tank in a sleeping bag.

Someone suggested polystyrene to keep the heat in, that's what my dad used to do aswell.

Any tips would be great!
