  1. So I know that my fish are happy and comfortable. I see them up at the surface sometimes and it makes me wonder if the oxygen level is high enough...
  2. Well...pretty much what the title says. I need a way to test for dissolved oxygen in my tanks because I don't like all this guessing business. I need accurate readings for everything so I know exactly what's going on. If I need a different meter, can someone please point me in the direction of where I can get one? Thanks for looking
  3. Thanks. All I've been doing for 6 months is working my butt off and taking care of my fish Thanks. Even though they've got 10 gallons (UK) each, it still ain't enough. I REALLY want that 60 gallon acrylic tank so they can have more space and be together. Thanks They seem really happy too, so it's all good
  4. Love the fish Sorry to hear about your other common tho
  5. Yeah, I'm really looking forward to having them back together again. They were together initially but I had to seperate them to keep them alive. Charger more than Prowler, but he IS younger. He likes to play a lot which is why I've got him right by my PC so I can give him the attention he needs
  6. Thanks Bumble. I'll be fixing the old tank and giving it to Charger so I can use the plastic tub as a QT tank. I'm gonna get a single custom made acrylic tank as soon as I can afford it because they need loads more space. I'm planning a 60 gallon so I can get them a little brother or sister. Charger looks as good as Prowler but because of the plastic you can't really see him properly. I feed them both a healthy diet with a variety of food including a weekly helping of peas I think they're so shiny because of the Sera Goldy Colour granules that I've been feeding them.
  7. Thanks for the replies guys. I checked out that birthday thread too, so thanks to everyone who posted in that. Second attempt at the vids: Charger Prowler Hope they work cos I have no idea why the first ones didn't work
  8. Sorry I haven't been around in a few months but work keeps me busy and tired Charger Prowler My big guy, Prowler, got a new tank. Same size as the old one, but free Before During. In the bowl 30 mins max. with air pump and tank water After. Lost some volume when I left the gravel out. Water level is maxed now though. Hope you enjoyed. I'll post more when I've had time to fix the old tank and give it to Charger. It's just an electrical problem so it shouldn't take me long
  9. I went through all the trouble of sizing up the new tank, only for the guy to tell me that his company only makes the big display tanks that you find in aquariums, restaurants, clubs, bars etc. I've searched and searched and searched and I can't find anywhere in the UK that makes acrylic tanks on a domestic scale ('scuse the pun). http://www.aquariummasters.co.uk/ Please, if anyone knows where I can get my new tank from, let me know because my guys really need a new home, and er, possibly a little *coughs* brother *coughs*
  10. Backup filters won't be a problem because I've already got a few, plus 1 future quarantine tank and a spare one which I'm hoping to re-stock at some point in the not too distant future. I'm just looking for a powerful, top of the range internal filter or two that will last for quite a while and won't start making weird noises. I don't think I'll find one filter that will give me nearly 500 GPH anyway so I'll go for two, but which ones? I want maximum media capacity without getting HUGE filters. There's so many to choose from and I have no idea what I want....
  11. I've finally got the ball rolling with getting that acrylic tank made. It's gonna be 37" long, 19" wide and 22" high, which will give me just under 55.75 UK gallons at just over 210kg water weight. The problem I'm having is with finding the filtration that I want without getting an external filter or crowding the tank with internals. I want to have at least 8x filtration (446 GPH) but the best I'm coming up with is about 6x. Any ideas on what to get and where to get it? I really want just the one filter because I've got so many plugs in my room, but if I have to get two then I will. I don't want to spend more than ?100 on the filtration. Any info would be greatly appreciated
  12. Thanks for the replies everyone, and Fantail, of course I'll have fun..It's shopping! I think in a past life I may have been a woman cos I'm an expert at spending money and I really love it. I'm looking forward to the upcoming months because I get to spend loads of money on my fish and my car. I'll have a total of over ?500 of spare cash each month to play with Things are finally starting to go my way...
  13. Thanks for the info Kiya. I think I'll buy some when I get paid because I'll probably be fixing up the tanks. I'll have about ?200 of spare cash so bring on the spending spree!
  14. Thanks for the reply. I've been worried that I might be making him sick by not giving him the light that he needs. He's been acting a bit strange, but I suppose that's to be expected after losing the light that he's had for a year
  15. Ok, everywhere I go I either see or hear about moss balls. As the title says, what's the deal? I want to explore new things for my fish and moss balls seem like a good idea, but I want to get as much information as I can before buying any. My main concern is whether or not they're recommended for Comets. I can't seem to find any info but I'm falling asleep in my chair so I'm hardly putting in the effort...Working nightshift is harder than I expected..... Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance guys
