Sorry to hear bout your loss. i dont know anything on this subject, as i have never had to deal with it. i was just thinking, could they jump out of the water due to a natural instict? like something they would normally do in the wild?
lol i like it. yeh he defo sounds like a bit of trouble. i'd take him back to the lfs. i had a green bristle star, which was ok for a while then munched everything in sight, as i kept on giving him chances to change his ways. let my mistake by ur guidence.
Hi Swanny, I've got a bit of red algea too. i've been reading that this is normal for newly set up tanks, it will come and go for a while. how long have you had yours set up for? try adding some algea eating fish and critters to your tank (ie blue legged hermit crab, green emerald crab, cleaner wrasse, etc) these should help with the clean up of the algea.
As long as your tank set up meets the requirments for all the fish in there, ie temperature settings, Ph, etc.., i THINK it would be ok. i've only had my tank about a year so i might be wrong. but when selecting fish i always research them before buying, making sure that my tank is suitable for them. i hope someone will either confirm or correct me lol
I was just wondering if anyone from the Tesside area (if there are any lol) knows of any good marine fish shops? i know of a few like 'Petmaina' in Billingham, 'Billingham Aquatics' etc... But these are the only ones i know that supply marine fish. Any one got any good suggestions? baring in mind that i am from Hartlepool, so i dont want to be traveling miles away. Cheers Woody
I already had a look at copeods as a posibility. but they dont look any thing like what i have. if it is a baby shrimp i want to try and raise it, i know its hard and the fish will be after it, but i think it would be good. cheers flameangel
