  1. of course the fish listed below are just ideas and may change if they cannot be kept with coral soft coral all live hard coral all live blood shrimp (1 or 2) wrasses firfish clown fish seahorse (possible if tank runs 100% surgeons
  2. by live rock do you mean live rock or coral..... i think mine would fall under a reef tank.as there would be lots of coral could you tell me if the tank in question would be ok. if so how many fish would i be able to keep in the tank.. the filter states it can cope with 4kg of fish feeding 1% of there body weight on a 35% protin diet or some thing like that lol would coral also put stress on the filter or would i be right in saying the coral would help the filter? thank you
  3. Hi all im getting a marine/reef tank this one http://www.aquaone.co.uk/aquamarine_900.php i want to keep coral in the tank soft and hard ones and also some blood shrimp and fish. i want lots of nice coral will i be doing the wrong thing in getting that tank. would it sustain coral as well as fish and is a marine tank a tank with no coral but fish and a reef tank a tank with coral and fish
  4. Hi everybody long time no see i hope your all well and everything is good i am thinking about starting to keep fish again. after a few years not keeping them i miss things. for those who dont know i stopped due to work and moving house (150 miles away) I want to keep some firemouth cichlids. but am a little confused on what tank would be best. i was looking at the Juwel Rio 180 Aquarium its around the price i am happy to spend on one and also works out at 40 uk gallons and 48 us gallons. 3 feet in lenth. would this tank be big enough in size? for the quantity of fish i would keep in there it would probably be 2 firemouth cichlids male and femail (hoping to bread with them) as i am aware they like there own space. But would i get away with keeping any other fish in there? small ones big ones? i dont know what would be best if any could some one also give me a link or info on firemouths i read up on them a few years back now so i have probably forgot more then i know so it would be good to have another read. the info i guess i really want is what decor would need to be put into the tank i think i am right in saying lots of hiding places but apart from that anything else? sand? gravel? plants? thank you for reading and again hope your all well
  5. And the best in my eyes. its always nice to do things that you enjoy to be honest if i breed anything and let them grow i would prob end up only asking a very small fee if any at all
  6. You cannot get a filter that is to powerfull in the sense that it cleans your water to much BUT. a big filter in a small tank will have a big current in it. This also MAY NOT be bad thing but you have to take into consideratation your fish and what they like. ie natural habitat
  7. i know you cannot make huge money off its just some thing nice to do. ive got a well paid job at the moment so dont need the extra money anyways i just enjoy it anyway thinking about work im late lol see you soon <3
  8. not using it for gf. and yes will be around 100gal
  9. spare 10 gal tank... erm.... Leave it set up for QT i know you said about the rubbermade BUT i as a human would much rather go to a nice tank that has perfect stats then a rubbermade that has just been set up for me coz im sick..... Take the english NHS if i had an option i would much rather go privat then go to the NHS when im sick But if you really really dont want to keep it for QT then you could always grow some brine shrimp. or some other wonderfull live fish food. dont know if its possible to cultivate bloodworm om pretty show one of my old friends did it before though. So all in all my opinion is not to keep any fish in a 10gal tank but to keep things in the tank that will keep your other fish even happyer
  10. You tell them girl!] no but you are very right in what you say and for the gallon it MUST be more then 90gals ok ok gets calc out................ 132.086026 THATS US GALLONS 109.984579 Imperial gallons uk Good luck if you get
  11. Hi all for some reason in this day and age im not able to buy just a tank and a stand and then put the bits in i want ie lights filters. Im getting pushed to buy from a big company that has bundled everything together some may think this is a good idea some like me hates the idea but never mind ill get over it. so anyway im getting a new tank bigger the better without spending stupid amounts of money i need GOOD solid aquitment. have a few questions really who makes the best tanks and who puts the best stuff with them i was looking at http://www.juwel-aquarium.de/en/rio.htm?cat=8 is this big enough? i have no clue how many uk gallons this is 400 Litres Im Wanting the tank to set a home for some cichlids dont know what type im going for so not really show on how big a tank i need but to be honest i just want a big tank
  12. some one says they grow upto 12 inch........... there tank busters lmao. thats not a prob really as ill be getting a big tank. what ever type ill be getting. they look kinda nice also
