My male bristlenose has never been a problem for anyone in my tank. :)

Re: Tetra AquaArt tank- Help please! #2
I can't see Brian's new found orangey gorgeousness very well - think he is also getting depressed with no light?

Tetra AquaArt tank- Help please! #3
Hiya guys, long time no speak - again! Am on internet via a stupid dongle which means it costs me loads to use forums, as I am charged for everything I upload. PANTS!!

Ok. This is what I need help with.

Bulb went on above mentioned tank, bought new one - easy enough, is a Tetra AquaArt bulb, correct size etc etc, wrong price in my opinion, but hey-ho!

Took knackered bulb out, put new one in, turned it onand hey presto..... it came on for a nano second now wont come on at all.

Put new fuse in plug... still wont work.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Not eating/lethargic new betta? #5
i bought some hikari betta pellets at the weekend and read on theback that bettas can be very picky with food and may take a week to start eating.

trailing white poo can be a sign of internal parasites, bacterial infection or constipation. is the fish bloated at all?

Re: people.... aaaggghhhhhh #6
sadly, this happenes a lot and doesn't suprise me in the slightest!
The betta i have aquired was from someone whose kids have lost interest.
'if you don't want him i will flush him' i think was what was said.

Re: Slightly concerned about nudge now..... #7
comets tend to be slimmer in the body with longer, more flowing fins and tails. commons more stout with stubbier fins etc.

a pic would be good to see how red exactly we are talking, though i am not up to speed with their story as i have been off the site for quite a while.

if their previous situation was not good, sometimes things can get worse before they get better as they adjust as Suey reminded me earlier.

Re: plec sucker fish not eating advive needed #9
hi.

If the fish shop just said 'plec' I would guess he is a common plec. if he was a bristlenose or anything else, they would have told you i would imagine/hope...

deffo try him with the cucumber with the spoon stuck thru as a weight. he does not need to recognise it, he will know it's food when he smells it! most trops will have a go at it too and this is fine. You will probably find it's prettymuch gone before it has any effect on your water quality. i tend to leave a chunk in for around 4 days as i find some fish/snails wont attempt to eat things until they have had time to 'marinate' in the water for a bit.

generally, my male bristlenose lives off algae and spends lots of time stuck to the slate of his many caves. i also feed him 'pleco wafers' which he eats at night. he is also quite partial to the odd dead fish so if someone pops it during the night, he will eat 'em! I have caught him on a couple of occaisions so i know it's him! i do my daily head count each morning and there is no carcass to be found.....

ps: forgot to say - if he's a common plec, he will get HUGE.
