Donation of mature media #1
Hi all. If anyone is struggling with a stalled cycle etc I would be happy to donate some mature filter media.

I have done this in the past and it's fairly easy, just pm me and I will give you my details, then send a SAE (jiffy bag would be best) and a zip lock plastic bag. I will then post it back with some media in the plastic bag. This should kick start your cycle.

Obviously I can only do this once a month or so or my filter would crash.

If any other experienced fishkeepers want to jump on board with this idea then please feel free.

Re: Rasboras swimming in Lower half of tank. #2
I usually go with the ratio 1 inch of fish to 4 litres of tank so you could stock a few more little guys in there. Probaly 3 rasboras as odd numbers look better.

My tank is a bit busier than the above ratio but I over filter it to compensate.

Re: fish-less cycle going belly up #3
Is your 80l tank now fully stocked with fish?

And how mature is it? Eg how long since the cycle completed?

Fishlady probably knows where I am going with this.

Re: Would this put you off buying fish...... #4
One or two dead fish is only to be expected as the volume of fish in the shop far exceeds anything we are likely to have in our own tanks.

P@H does appear to be rather bad in this department but my local one always acts fast if a dead fish is pointed out (usually by my daughter).

Most dedicated fish/reptile centres are much better, after all they specialise in scaled life and most have an ongoing maintenance schedule. Usually on the tank I am interested in buying from.

Re: Filter and tank Cleaning #6
This is the water treatment I use. Its expensive but very concentrated so lasts ages.

Re: Pregnant fish laying eggs #7
Ahhhh. That explains it. I had those very same mysterious things on a circulation pump that I changed out and couldn't figure out what they were.

Re: Bloated male platy #9
I can't see any diseases on him. I would say he is a bit greedy.

Livebearers are really hard to sex (apart from swortails) so not your fault if its a lady.

Re: May I introduce Rex #10

They are both silver and identical so I can't really name them.
