Where do I go from this disaster zone? #4
Okay so you may remember I posted a video of my fish tank about a week ago. It had just reached near perfection! Then disaster struck. I introduced 6 neon tetra purchased from Maidenhead Aquatics in Wembley. Within 12 hours two neons had died. Wthin 1 day 3 neons and 1 platy had died. Day 2 - and 2 black neons to add to the list - day 4 the rest of the neon tetra introduced 4 black neons and 1 penguin tetra have now died. This was undoubtedly a disease introduced by the recent additions (one of them appeared ill in the bag). My tank is now a disaster zone plants upturned and theming displaced from corpse recovery and the tank is now like a ghost town.

All this could have been avoided if I had invested in a quarantine tank. I've learnt my lesson the hard way.

I have no idea what this illness was. Definatly something that was a very quick lethal killer. All I can do now is daily water changes and go to maidenhead aquatics and moan till my mouth is dry.

Re: Please help me on finding deals for fish tanks #5
Penny your SO lucky !!! I've been trying to find a 125 on ebay for about a month now but because im in london quite a few people are near enough to bid on them so they go for like ?80

I'm looking to get a much nicer tank for the goldies but really can't be outlaying much more than ?50 .

make your own tank? #6
Okay so I know some people make their own sumps but I just wondered whether anyone had attempted to make their own tanks? I'm thinking of making one because then I have it the size I want and not the designated sold by retailers so would love to hear of any past experiences !

Re: 10 great community fish - by PFK #7
well if I had to give a worse fish it would undoubtedly be the silver shark sold small and on a recent visit to the london aquarium i was such an eye opener to see such huge specimens which were of actually a normal size for the species

Re: nature on your doorstep.... #8
wow it is a beautiful creation but it does need to be sorted. If it were bee's I think they have to rehome them? But wasps are killed i'm afraid. It is the safest option - my neighbour has a nest in her loft and refuses to be rid of it; as a cosequence I can't lrave windows open with the light on after sundown and they can be very angry towards the end of summer.

The cruelty has to stop! #9
Oh my good lord!

I was at a fair the other day and I was shocked to see fish being given out as prizes on no less that 5 stalls. What made it worse was not the fact that these fish were being given to people who had not planned for such ownership but the treatment of the fish. One guy had a bowl full all looking terrified uddled together at the bottom and he simply grabbed one out with his hand put it in a bag and bam enjoy your new huge responsibility. In another instance a woman was actually giving them out un plastic cups !

I had no idea that this shocking practice still went on its so distresing to see beautiful fish treated with such disregard.
