Re: Hard water fish that dig around #1
Hi Steveo,

How deep is the substrate? You can always give it a stir/prod a couple of times a week, I used to keep one of those wooden kebab skewers by my tank for the job (make sure you don't spear any of your fish!)

Free for postage- hagen master test kit (old and dusty) #4
The one in the case. Don't get all excited, I know it goes for about ?50 brand new but it's old and I think most of the tests have had it and a couple of the test tubes are missing. So it's basically just the case with the spaces to put the tests, hence me not bothering to Ebay it.

Let me know if you're interested and I'll check how much postage is. Alternatively you could pick it up if you're near Cambridgeshire, I'm just off the A1 south of Peterborough.

Re: musical tastes??? #5
Psymon, we should have a pint sometime and reminisce about 90s metal I was well into all that, as a teenager my walls were covered in Metallica posters and whatever else was in Kerrang.

I still listen to all that stuff. Me and my mates are just starting up a new band, just doing covers because we don't have time to write our own stuff any more.

I used to be in bands doing original stuff but small children are not really compatible with rock n roll so it's on the back burner for now.

Any other bass players?

Re: Fluval U2 #6
I made a DIY spray bar once out of a bit of syphon tube. As long as it doesn't slow the flow too much then it should be OK. Which way is the outlet pointing? Just changing the direction a bit might help.

Re: Trimming Plants #7
Hi Rob,

Depends what you've got With ones that have a stem with leaves coming off it (like elodea, water wisteria etc) then you can trim it off wherever you like and if you want you can stick the cutting in the substrate and it should grow a new plant.

If it's got long leaves like vallis then the leaf will die off if you cut it, but new ones will grow from the base.

Re: What's my Catfish #8
The anal fin reminds me a bit of this but I can't see the rest of the body clearly, so don't panic yet

Re: Onion plants #9
Hi Lisa

I had onion plants when I had goldfish and they are pretty tough. They do grow enormous though so if your tank is less than 200 litres then you might want to go for something else. Anubias is small but tough, I had some luck with java fern too.

Re: Do I bury non rooted plants? #10
Hi Krabbie,

With these type of plants, you unwrap the weight and stick the individual stems into the gravel. They will grow roots then, takes a bit longer if you've got fish that dig them up though.
