Fish for rehoming - can anybody help? #1
Hi everyone, not been on here for quite a while, but I'm hoping you might be able to help me out! We are moving house and having to break down a tank - this is a last resort, and we're gutted that we're having to do it, so I'm really want the fish to go to a good home with people who knows what they're doing! They are just bog standard fish, but we're so attached to them (you know what its like!)

Anyway, we need to rehome the following fish:

- approx 20 cardinal tetras (all big healthy buggers)
- 1 yellow female swordtail
- 1 orange male swordtail
- 2 sunset platies
- 1 male blue ram (very healthy good colours)
- 1 pair of Apistogramma steindachneri
- 1 medium sized female bristlenose
- 1 male dwarf gourami
- 1 flying fox (pretty sure its a flying fox, not a SAE)
- 5 big fat yoyo loaches (all about 3 inches long)
- 4 otos
- 1 leopard frog plec (L134) - about 2 inches long, not shy for his species. Would prefer for someone who really knows what they are doing with plecs to take him, and would also be looking for a bit of money - say ?20?

- There are also 4 zebra danios and 5 WCMMs from a different tank, all healthy. Both tanks have been completely disease free!

Anyway, thats everyone . There will also some bits and bobs which I will post in classified with prices.

Hope its ok to post on here, please move to appropriate forum if I'm wrong - and that anyone would be interested. We can try and get pics of individual fish if anyone wants. We are in Plymouth.

Re: What filters do you all like? #2
I went through this not that long ago, couldn't decide what to get! In the end I went for a Rena XP2, mainly because we already have old broken one which I could use for spares if I needed.

Its really good, and really quiet - although I wouldn't say silent!

Re: Tank overhaul #3
I would put some background on too - mine is painted really dark blue, looks really good.

Pebble-wise are you anywhere near a beach? I picked up some flat pebbles from a beach near me and boiled them up, then siliconed them together to make a bridge that couldn't be destructed by fish who don't realise how big they are!

I think you can just about see colour of background and the bridge in my avatar.

Re: Could this be whitespot? #4
Have just thought, a new twisted vallis went in on Thursday, so it could have been from that. Bummer. Thanks, will pick up some formalin tomorrow and keep an eye on it

Could this be whitespot? #5
I've just spotted this on Fishy - is the only spot in the tank that we can see at all and its developed since this morning.

Newest addition was Wiggly about 6 weeks ago (unquarantined unfortunately grr) and luckily there have been no problems so far. Do you think this is whitespot or something else?

Thanks

Re: Poorly goldie? Or just a piggie? #6
He seemed quite bright this morning - I think he had just got excited at the new food and stuffed himself silly and was then feeling a bit sorry for himself lol. I am always so paranoid about my fish though, I worry at the slightest thing!

Poorly goldie? Or just a piggie? #7
Fed the fish about an hour ago, have been keeping an eye on the newest addition (Wiggly) who hasn't been looking himself since. He's mooching about, dorsal fin clamped and looking a bit wobbly as he swims. Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5, and they had a water change yesterday.

They have a cube of brine shrimp, so not a huge amount. It is the first time he's had brine shrimp though :/ Could it just be that he has pigged out a bit too much?

Any ideas? Or am I just being paranoid?

Re: looking for nano #9
Not that I have anything useful to add as I don't keep marines, (sorry to butt in!) but OH found THIS amazing marine tank and sent me the link in an email entitled "Why aren't we rich?!" lol.

Sorry I know that won't help you at all but just wanted to share!

Re: Treating whitespot with shrimp in the tank... #10
Ok, will do. Should we do half doses for 4 days, or 8 days? Or just go for it with the full dosage for 4 days?
