    When assassins need to be assassinated

    My assassin snails have done a great job, and have extinguished the nasty snail infestation I had. But they've got on so well they've now breed and I have hundreds of small assassins snails, if anyone would like some, or have some Crypts to swap for them, let me know. Can send 10 small ones at...

    Large water change and things seems stable now. Have dropped the water level and left things for the night. It looks like I had opened the CO2 valve too much and it's been on all day. The Corys seem OK though. Thanks for the help

    changed a little of the media and cleaned it out. I only changed about 20% of the water, yesterday. I can only think it's got something to do with the gas. Could have possibly been on all night, and just wondering whether the canister is actually filled with CO2?

    Hi, Have just come home to a tank full of dead fish. Glowlights and Kitty Tetras all dead. Have just lifted 3 Corydoras out and after floating up side down for a while have now moved to the bottom of a bucket of fresh water. My red shrimp all seem OK, there are now no snails on the glass, and...

    green algae taking hold - help please

    After taking some close-up pictures I can see the green algae taking hold. Although the colours do look really nice, it's time to get it under control. The tank is over 15 years old, 270L, and when changing scape (August '18) I retained the original Amazonia soil, and to me the tank just feels...

    Have cut the lighting back a little, have cleaned all the stones that got covered in algae. The inlet is now a spray bar and the crypts are growing well now. Still a lot of snails around but am keeping them under control, manually plucking them out. The Java fern is finally coming back to life...

    Bushy plant suggestions

    Hi UKAPS, my tank is settling down now after a growth stint of algae, and snails. But the plants are now settling down and taking shape, the crypts are waking up and it's been the shift to a spray bar that has helped things along. I'd like to grow a nice plant to fill out the back left and...
