    Peely's 55cm Cube

    This has the makings of a good triangular composition. I like the tank size too, I'd quite like a tank this shape.

    Nick's Journal

    I do :lol: that's a minor issue in the scape, though. You'll sort it out. Like the other guys are saying, it's best to trim it down. Maybe not to the substrate, but about 5mm above.

    I don't think anyone can predict fish behaviour, it depends on the fish. Having said that, at 6cm they aren't large fish and small Rainbowfish aren't known for eating shrimp. I think you'll be ok, but you can only try it and see what happens. I've never kept them though.

    Cheap Lily Pipes / Lily Pipes for a Fluval 105

    Alternative Inlet/Outlet for Fluval 105

    I'm planning to use a Fluval 105 on a 35l tank. The tank isn't very tall, and so the inlet/outlet are too large, especially the inlet being too long. Can anyone suggest another way of using them/some other kind of inlet/outlet that I could buy on the cheap?

    I've never kept Cories, and want to get some this weekend. Having never kept them (or any bottom-feeder for that matter) I'm not too sure on what to feed them! Could anyone who has eperience with Cories recommend a food for them? Something that AE sell would be good. :D
