  1. It's been a year now since I got these two in the mail as two babies Fuji and Fudge are teens I think well they certainly eat like it.
  2. Thanks guys I'm not too worried about their feeding timetable this works for me.
  3. Thanks Flipper mine don't continuously gulp but since I need to replace my air pump and I was given this wave maker free I thought I'd test it out.
  4. I could possibly deal with some issues such as diatoms and oxygenation also helping to push fish poop out of dead spots.
  5. Oops sorry got the Gph wrong it's not 717 gph its actually 343 gph
  6. During the week I'm at work so I either feed them in the morning or when I get home but on weekends I break it down to 2 or 3. The odour is barely there anymore.
  7. Sure, I have 2 Orandas and 2 Eheim external canister filters both have a combined output of 717gph / 1490lph.
  8. I have a glass hood on my tank with a gap on each side now and again when I walk past the tank I smell this organic odour and I put it down to a lot of water movement on the surface and this releases or moves the odour up if that makes sense. Anyways this used to also annoy me but then I also stopped overfeeding my fish and now down to one feed a day. The organic smell isn't so strong anymore.
  9. Hi people it's been a while since I last logged on anyways I have a question about oxygenating and water movement. I have a 52gph / 600lph 3watt Wave Maker that is going into a 40g aquarium. My air pump is on its last legs and I want to have a more natural look. Do you think the wavemaker is enough to oxygenate my 40g or do I need something stronger?
  10. Hi there I'm by no means an expert but my Oranda's dorsal fin has similar fraying it didn't happen over night and it hasn't gotten any worse in my opinion it is just wear and tear due to swimming, getting in and around my plants and growth. My other Oranda doesn't have frayed fins. I purchased them as babies and haven't had any newly introduced fish in their 40g since I got them. There hasn't been anymore fraying to the dorsal fin since I first noticed it (touch wood) lol.

  15. Umm I'm not sure what a suitable water temperature for Guppies in a 15gal tank should be so I go for 25oC Sent using Tapatalk
  16. Maybe I should turn the heater off leave it to cool down then try to calibrate it again? What do u think? Sent using Tapatalk
  17. Hi folks, I recently purchased the Eheim jäger 25w heater for my 15 gal Guppy tank I tried to calibrate it, now is the light supposed to go out when it reaches it's desired setting? My thermometer fluctuates from 20C to 25C has anyone else had issues with these heaters? Appreciate your advice Sent using Tapatalk
  18. I've been trying to think of a way to spruce up my betta tank your pics are a great inspiration Sent using Tapatalk
  19. Aww geez you're so lucky here in NZ we have the same problem well at least where I live.
  20. Apart from occasionally dosing them with excel and I'm sure abit of fish poop fertilizer keeps them fed. Anubias and Java Fern are hardy plants I only have cheap LED lighting but they're hardy. My little guys like to nibble at the roots so hopefully they survive. I do get brown algea on the Anubias from time to time but I just wipe it off.
  21. Thanks folks...Umm I just follow everyones advice I guess lol
  22. Thanks...its an app on my phone called 'capture' where you can edit videos for youtube and it gives you music so u don't get in trouble for copyright..lol.
