    Kribensis with these fish?

    In a 4ft tank with another pair of cichlids then I'd only add a pair. This should still leave some space for you other fish to get out of the way if both pairs of cichlid spawn at the same time. If you give fish enough room then they will just chase fish off - you only get serious injuries and...

    Journal My New Filter and Pond - Lots of pictures

    It's all still running well thanks guys. Will try and remember to take some photos when I'm over my folks next time. Future plans are to convert the filter on this pond to run on air like my new pond as it's much more efficient. We will keep the skimmer running on a pump to power the...

    lake malawi cichlids

    3ft is a little small for Lake Malawi cichlids, you would be best with Tanganyikans in that size though you would only be able to keep a few as they need more space. If you really want Malawis then stick to the most peaceful mbuna - Labidochromis caeruleus Yellow and small, peaceful...

    picking the right fish for a planted tank!

    Kribs will sift substrate and disturb plants but they don't eat them and if you replant them they might well not remove them after. All cichlids do not damage, eat or dig up plants. Very few cichlids are herbivorous (but many are omnivorous and will nibble them) and all most cichlids are doing...

    Decreasing pH and hardness

    Peat has a negligible effect on pH and hardness unless your tap water is fairly soft already. IME the only way to reliably lower the pH and hardness in a plant and fish friendly way is to use water with a lower GH and KH - ie. RO water.

    Tropica 1-2 grow

    I grew Dactylorhiza. I grew a few fuchsii, foliosa and another I can't remember now! I also tried Cypripedium calceolus but wasn't very successful. I was growing them from spawn/seed and disinfecting them without killing them off was the challenge! I still grow fuchsii if you want some sealed...

    Tropica 1-2 grow

    I've tissue cultured hardy terrestrial orchids in the past and, as has been said above, the real key to it is keeping the media, equipment and the plant material itself sterile otherwise you just grow moulds and bacteria. To be honest I think you'd find more traditional emersed or submerged...

    Quick question...

    The static head will be from the water level in the sump to the top water level in the display tank so even if you keep the sump inly 30cm below the base of the aquarium (tricky to do when you will need the thickness of the stand too) you will still have 30cm plus of water depth in the display...

    Lampeye fry

    If the tank is empty of all other fish then you might be best to leave them in the tank and add newly hatched brine shrimp to the tank. The fry will soon find it and eat it and they will eat all the microorganisms in the tank too.

    Allpondsolutions 1400ef+

    £60 was what I paid but looks like they've gone up! Not the best idea from them as if they get close to price of other filters then they lose their big selling point!!!

    Plant ID please!

    The leaves look terrestrial to me, like it has been submerged or fallen in - they look too tough for most aquatics. Although it's not from the right continent maybe Anubias might be the closest match? Or thick leaved species of cryptocoryne or amazon sword?

    Drop Testers - are they reading CO2 or PH ?

    Only if you have 4dKH water in the drop checker. If you're using tank water for it then it will not give you an accurate measure of the CO2 level as other chemicals will affect the pH reading - it needs to be just (bi)carbonate providing the KH and CO2 providing the acidity to be totally accurate.
  16. Ed Seeley

    Drop Testers - are they reading CO2 or PH ?

    Both. They are reading the pH in the water in the drop checker. However as you use a known KH water in there (4dKH) it means that the pH solution will turn green when there's 30ppm CO2 in the water. So indirectly they measure CO2 by measuring the pH of a known KH water where the only outside...

    Quick question...

    Working out the flow with a given head is possible if you have the performance curve of the pump and can work out the frictional head from all the piping (usually you can estimate this) to add to the static head. How is your sump's water level only 30mm below the water level in your display...
  18. Ed Seeley

    Quick question...

    I would. Always better to overgun the flow as it's easy to turn down but the only way to increase is to buy a bigger pump. With a sump you must also take into account the static head the pump is working against to lift the water from the sump water height to the display tank's water surface.

    Increasing flow in a deep tank

    What are the dimensions of the tank? If it's a deep cube then I would add some way of getting CO2 rich water to plants lower down in the tank. You could either have a deepwater outlet to the filter though I would only do this if you have inline CO2 reactor/diffuser as the outlet will put CO2...

    Stocking Help Please

    If you're looking for decent sized tetras then definitely look at Bleeding Heart Tetras and Diamond Tetras. Both look awful and washed out in shop tanks but give them 6 months to a year and they look stunning. Some of the barbs are a great choice too - Puntius nigrofasciatus is one of my...

    What the hell has happened?

    Why would you want to increase GH and KH? I used to use pure RO water and only ever added a bit of RO salts occasionally (1/2 teaspoon to 25l) if anything as if you're dosing ferts you will be adding everything you need through them IME.
  23. Ed Seeley

    carpet plants and corydoras and hoplo

    Hoplos get pretty big. When I used to keep one I found that it would uproot most types of stem plants by swimming through them after replanting, never mind carpet plants! One of my favourite fish though - makes me wish I had a big softwater tank filled with discus, angels, festives...

    Anyone use rain water?

    Probably. Best way is to test the water thoroughly before you start - test GH, KH, pH at least. I'd also test Nitrate, nitrite and ammonia (the last two just to be safe) and, as I said before, run the water through carbon at least. If the tiles are still new then your KH will be above 0, it...

    Slow release/dissolving food blocks any good?

    Complete waste of time and money. If well fed for the rest of the year then fish can go for up to 3 weeks without food. If you really want to feed them then get an automatic feeder and set that up with food in - much better investment and you can control when and what is fed.

    Marginal ideas

    Iris laevigata Variegata is a must for me - it has very neatly variegated broad leaves and then blue flowers. In the marsh marigolds you can get double yellow and white versions too which are rather nice and a little more unusual. Another one I like, is Zandeschia aetheopica - Arum lilies -...

    Anyone use rain water?

    It's fine to use. I used to before getting an RO unit. All I did was syphon it out through carbon and floss just in case. You don't want to use the tap if it's right at the bottom unless you have to as you will pull more of the settled debris out with it - if you want to use a tap fit another...

    How many discus?

    Discus are reported to live at high densities during the dry season when the flooded areas dry out but when the rivers flood they move out into the shallows and then spawn and defend a space to breed. With cichlids in captivity you can use high densities to reduce one-on-one aggression by...

    Balloon rams mix

    Please bear in mind that Mikrogeophagus species are naturally pair forming, not haremic so you may end up with a spare female if you buy a trio. Sometimes in captivity harems will form but often not. With all cichlids that form bonds you are much better off buying a group of 6 or more fish...
  30. Ed Seeley

    Balloon rams mix

    They're all the same species so get two pairs and you might end up with two mixed pairs. I prefer the natural form and assuming a 200l tank is around 1m long I'd go for one happy pair; two at the very most.
  31. Ed Seeley

    Balloon rams mix

    what size tank is it? While these are deformed, line bred they are still cichlids and need a decent amount of space, around 2ft per pair plus room for spares if both pairs breed at the same time.

    I would have said flow though the shrimp do come from cooler water. you don't need to go over 24 ime.

    Blackwater and Plants

    blackwater habitats have no plants as the very heavy tannin staining reduces light and the water is very acidic and very low in nutrients which doesn't allow much submersed plant growth. In an aquarium you rarely get such high tannin levels and you can fertilise the plants.

    Ember Tetras won't eat. Please help with diet...

    I take it they are new? If so call the store and find out what they were eating there. If they are new they will survive for a couple of weeks without food. If they don't eat in a couple more days get some live foos, such as Daphnia, as the movement will encourage eating response and it will...

    Replace T5's with LED

    If you've got the T5s already set up then it probably isn't worth the cost.

    Silicone - setting times

    Silicone applied will initially cure quite quickly but it takes longer to get to full strength and cure fully. If the tank builder has put a sticker on saying leave until 29th March then leave it until at least then. If you only leave it for a day or so then the tank may fail when filled.

    Filter Tubing

    Only if the internal diameter is rougher on one than the other or they are made from much thinner tubing which will collapse and kink more easily. If I had a long run to use (More then 3m or so) I would look at either rigid PVC / solvent weld black pipe or high quality ribbed pipe with smooth...
  42. Ed Seeley


    No that sounds fine. They are just cichlids and as such relatively intelligent fish and if they've got a spot where they found food once they will keep hunting for it there. I keep Mbuna from Lake Malawi in my main tank and they scour the areas around the rocks as it's where the food collects...

    Filter Tubing

    Length of pipework can have a big difference on the frictional head that the pump has to work against, especially with external filters which work against a static head of effectively zero. Another thing that makes a big difference is the diameter of the pipework and any restrictions to it such...
  44. Ed Seeley


    They're probably looking for food. Angelfish will clear an area to spawn but unless they're a mature pair this is unlikely and they don't eat plants for the sake of it. Some mesh over the area will stop them.

    Whats better: 2 little ones or 1 Big one?

    It's not the way the water is spread that causes the inefficiency it's the actual design of the motor itself. Streamflow type pumps have a large propellor type impellor that shifts a lot of water at low pressure and never restricts the water in pipes meaning huge amounts can be shifted short...

    Anyone come across a really nice Internal Corner Filter ?

    I'd say you can't do much better than the Juwel filters. They are big, but that means plenty of room for media and, as you don't remove them from the tank when cleaning, easy to clean too. You can also get different power pumps for them. Downsides; they are big boxes to have in the corner of...

    Probably best to rinse it in old tank water or RO but tap water will be fine and won't make any difference. I dunk the bag full of New media in the bucket of old water when I'm doing a water change and swirl it around which is quick and simple way to rinse it.

    If airstones were so effective...

    Most of the advantage of airstones in aerating a tank are actually down to them cirulating the water due to the rising stream of bubbles, not because of extra oxygen dissolving from the bubbles. Also gases will only dissolve until they are in equilibrium with the water and the content of the...

    TNC GH Boost

    Unless you're keeping sensitive wild Tanganyikans then any pH above 7 will be ok. The easiest way to raise it is to add aragonite into your filter somewhere which will slowly dissolve and raise the KH and GH. BYW GH doesn't effect pH it's KH that does. You can raise this using bicarb.

    Wood ID

    Looking at the widely spaced growth rings and the compact root ball with no major tap roots I'd say that wasa softwood stump (probably a pine or cypress) and I wouldn't use it submerged in a tank personally. However you could soak it and see what happens if you really like the shape.
