So regrettably my partner is downsizing her tank, we don't have the space for the big tank any more and we're no longer getting the pond to move them into, so we're getting rid of 5 and keeping two. The fish are in Aylesbury (HP19) and it would be upto whoever wants the to bring a container to transport them in in the five there are 2 shubumpkins and 3 comets, i don't want to split the 5 up as they have so much fun swimming around the tank together and following you as you walk past. i really do want someone who is going to look after them as she really doesn't want to let them go as she is quite attached, so for this reason I'm asking for it to be an contributing member that they go to. am i being too picky? i don't think so post a reply if you are interested and i'll get back to you asap. http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww263/Blaze-306/photo.jpg the two under the filter we are keeping after a tank and unit with light and canopy? when the fish have found a new home the rest will be getting sold, let me know if you are intrested or want the whole lot
would you be able to link me to one of the aquarays with the moonlighting viewing please? i can only seem to find marine ones for a start and nothing that says moonlighting, i'm either stupid or tired and i'm putting it down to being late :)

So i am fussy and i am not keen on the flicker of a floresent tube so am looking to upgrade in the future. Firstly what is the difference between T5 and T8 lighting?
Secontly i want a lighting unit that provides daylight light for my freshwater and the option of having a night time lighting.
I like the aqua beam lighting purely because of the option of a lighting controller (its a gimmick but i like it) it can simulate sunrise, sunset and moonlight phases, so i'm thinking of getting that as i assume moonlight is just a case of dimming the LED's therefore giving me a night time light :)
So i go the test kit through today and began my science experiments :D The results are as follows; PH:7.6 NH3:0.25 NO2:0 ppm NO3:40 ppm
i did panic when i saw the 40 but the test kit says anything 40 and below is good but i didnt like it being so close to the border so i went to my local and gote some nitrate de-toxifier which has an ammonia de-toxifier in it too.
So stupid question time, i know ammonia is what the fish produces, but what is nitrate? is it like nitrogen?
