Juwel Rekord 70 #1
Hi everyone,

I'm currently saving for a new tank for our fantail and oranda. One that I think looks good and is in my price range is the Juwel Rekord 70. I also like the fact that it's complete - so I won't need to go buying loads of extras (hopefully).

Has anyone got any experience with this tank? Is it a good buy? Or would anyone recommend a different brand (for a similar price)?

Thanks,
Ade

Hi there I hear the juwel tanks are very good, the only thing I don't like about them is that the filters are siliconed in so you cannot remove them to clean, but they talk about Jewel tanks favourably on my other fish site.

Is this the one, it looks very nice, how many gallons is it as I am no good with litres http://www.theaquariumshop.co.uk/ishop/1029/shopscr48.html

Apparently it is roughly 18 gallons, so is well big enough for your 2 fish, I would get the next size up if you are thinking Of getting any more fish though

Re: Juwel Rekord 70 #5
Correction!!!
I was doing a part water change on my 4ft tank last night and according to the buckets I use 25 lites is 5.5 gallons, so work that out, that means the reckord 70 is actually not quite 16 gallons.
And if your wife thinks you are getting obsessed Ade? then take a look at my new tank my husband got me for christmas this is what she maybe has in store

Re: Juwel Rekord 70 #6
Wow! Ermm, I'm not sure any of our rooms are big enough for a tank that size. So maybe my wife is safe!

Thanks for all your help.
