Re: Betta question female?

Maybe I'll shelve that one. I've got 4 Bronze Cory in with the Betta at the mo. There's been no problems so far. What other mid level fish could I have the tank is Aquaone 55Lt with plenty of filtration and plants. Celestial pearl danios, Danio erythromicron or any of the small Pseudomugils would p...

Re: Betta question female?

Not with Betta splendens in a normal sized tank. It does work with some of the other species.

Re: Betta mates what to go for?

Small Pseudomugils, emerald dwarf danios or celestial pearl danios should all work. Small corydoras such as Corydoras pygmaeus should also be fine.l especially if the tank will be well planted and have line of sight breaks. You don't have to keep Betta splendens at 28C. Just look up Maidenhead aquat...

Re: Upside-down goldfish is saved by a hand-made LIFE JACKET

Impressive. I would have just bopped it on the head.

Does anyone else find it annoying that people say "swim bladder" when they mean "swim bladder disease" or maybe "swim bladder disorder".

Re: Afterburned's 60l Planted Tank

The tank looks lovely. Hopefully you have a mix of sexes in the cherry shrimp and they will multiply 😁

Re: Getting there

Unless you have some very picky plants, you don't actually need a special plant substrate. You can just poke in root tabs every few months.

Re: Feather_Borbs fish orb

Yes I see so where do you get RO from an aquatic shop? l find small tanks difficult but might get tempted to have another go at some point ;) I got a little RO unit from Pro Shrimp. I don't need lots so I just run it once a week to fill up a bucket and a 12l tub that has a lid so I can store some. ...

I played the video to my Senegal and Meyer's. Loki the Senegal pinned his eyes and then looked scandalised at cockatiel noises 😆

I enjoyed the tiny fish swimming around holding huge (to them) bloodworms.

Re: Feather_Borbs fish orb

Wow this looks amazing, does it have a filter? I always assumed shrimp would be able to climb out of tanks? Why the RO water do shrimp need it to be soft? Lots of questions sorry! Thanks! 😁 It has a tiny filter with a tube attached to it that follows up the wood and causes drips through the moss an...
