Re: New tank #1
Thank you for the suggestions on what to put in with tetras. Another week or so and I think we'll be just about there

Re: New tank #2
I decided not to use Tetra safe start or any equivalent product. Instead I added liquid ammonia and let the bacteria develop naturally. It's taken best part of a month adding small amounts of ammonia every couple of days and testing the water. On Wednesday of last week I did a water test and the nitrite level had fallen off a cliff with a reading of zero. Ph 7 Hardness is 7.05 German degrees according to Severn Trent website.

New tank #3
Hi all. I've been cycling a new tank over the last few weeks and we are just about ready to start putting fish in. My 4 year old grandson is insistent on having some neon tetras in there. So my question is what other fish can I put in with tetras bearing in mind that I want some shrimps in there too? 110 litre tank. TIA for any suggestions.

Jebo cannister filter #5
Does anyone know where I can buy spares for a Jebo cannister filter in the UK? I can buy on ebay but they are coming from Honk Kong and delivery is 3 weeks. Thanks for any suggestions.

Safe start #6
I would like to know what people think about the products you can buy now when starting a new tank. I'm thinking specifically about Tetra Safe Start. I only mention Tetras product because that is the only one i'm aware of. If other products are out there I would welcome peoples opinions be they good or bad.
