Re: Java moss free, nearly half a bucket #1
Theyre doing great thanks, I think one of them is pregnant already, have to make an effort to see my tank now as the yukka tree next to it has gotten pretty big over the past month.

Just so you know Rustalbert, they gave me ?10 for it in the fish shop (Maidenhead aquatics, Taunton), and they'll probarly sell the whole lot on for about ?250

Re: Java moss free, nearly half a bucket #2
Sorry to be a letdown, it was in a bucket ready, didn't know how long it would last for out of running water to took it to the local fish store earlier today.
On the bright side my male fighter has two beautiful women to himself now, he's well happy, has been flaring his gills and showing off his long fins to them, he deserves something to show them off to other than me

Java moss free, nearly half a bucket #3
Hi, I am now overrun with Java Moss, I live in Somerset and its free. I cut it back thisevening and its submersed in a bucket of water, there is A LOT, feel free to take as much as you like, depending on how many of you want it will be the amount of times it's divided. Shame to see it go to waste knowing how much a little bit costs.

Re: Snails climbing up the tank #4
Hi I have a 30L fishtank with no fish in it, only MTS, theyve multipled from 2 to about a dozen. i have a filter running constantly, theres a big amazonian sword plant in there well established. 1 side get hit by the sun and has a LOT of algae on that side, the snails gather on that side, and not on the sides without algae. there is no airstone. the plant is being fed by one of those substrate tablets. i put a flake of food in once in a while to it breaks down for them tohave nutrients. havnt changed the water in months. some are getting pretty big now too.
it seems like good conditions for them?
the ones in my 90L i barley ever see, but there is no algae above sand and lots of fish

Re: Creaking fishtank!? #6
Checked it with a long spirit level all directions, all dead level. The stand looks ok, it is an aquarium stand. I dont see any bowing. But last night when I was trying to pinpoint exactly where the creaking was coming from, it did sound like the top of the tank on the left panel. theres been no creaking since I took 2L of water out, maybe I went slightly over the max filling point? there isnt a line saying max water level.

Creaking fishtank!? #7
hello again everyone. off to work soon with barely any sleep.
Was kept up last night filled with fear. Got home from work and into bed, then I started hearing all these creaking sounds, I thought it was the impeller in my rubbish external filter to start off. then I heared it again and closer inspection it was coming from the top left hand edge of the tank. It sounded like an old ship creaking in the ebbs. it was doing this for about 2 hours every few minutes. Its a 90L tank, seems level enough maybe not perfect but pretty level. I took out 2 litres of water and it seems to have stopped now.
I think my biggest concern are these 2 litle pockes of air in the sealent, and im not sure if a line of gap is appearing on the inside corner of the sealent either.
Im quite scared at the moment. especially since theres electrics all over the floor. dont want to come home of even worse get woken up to an electrical fire and cant gt out my room coz electricity is flowing through my soaked floor.
Sorry for all the writing but had to say as much as I could
Cheers in advance, off to work, Ill read any replies if I have a house to come back to

Re: Any Moth experts? Photos! Big one! :D #8
cheers :) yeah i was just walking back from work and i saw him just sitting on the other side of the pavement, i thought it was a bat or something to start with, picked it up (without grabbing the wings) bought it home and took some photographs then put it in the hedge, no doubt some bugger round here would have jumped on it.
going back to wales soon, gonna keep an eye out for some red kites aint seen one since i was a kid :)
