Maybe I should have my little boy join because it's his tank. Although 'you know who' will be doing most of the work...I'll make sure he does some of it.
A couple of questions:
1] Do you need to put the heater in at the very start of the cycling process?
2] In a 90'ish litre [2 & a half foot] tank how many Guppies can he have?
I have stood and cleaned his gravel...came with his tank...soaked it in boiling water and salt, cleaned it again, soaked it in un-salted boiling water....and then noticed very fine gritty colourful 'bits'. Some twit has painted quite a few small stones with metalic paint and it's coming off!!!! Now I'm doing it all again, picking out all the painted stones, what a pain...in more ways than one!!
yes he keeps rearranging the contents! I'll be putting the water in today, I hope that stops him!!
By the way....I feel like a twit. I must have seen the 'Fish Blogs' on the 'Fish Blogs' page....not the 'Profiles' page. I'm always looking around the site so I must have seen it on one of my trips - not really understanding what it was.
I have been buying my gravel from Wilkinsons, it always seems a lot cheaper. But thanks, I'm going in to 'P's @ H' today to buy Tropical flakes, to start cycling J's tank. I'm also giving in and buying him some 'Rainbow' gravel, I like the 'Dorset' myself, but his will look good with a bit of colour.
Now, in my family there is a condition called Aspergers Syndrome, I have a brother, a nephew and a son with it. Also, I can see traits in other family members...including me! I don't like odd numbers - daft I know, but I always work in even numbers. If that's the case I'd rather go up to 12!
BUT.... if he has ten, that means '6' females to '4' males - works all ways!!!
My poor husband has a LOT to put up with I tell you!!!
Plus....the more ladies the better, the way our male Orandas' are chasing the female, it's not on!!
