    Shrimp-proofing the Fluval flex 57L filter section

    Hey folks I hope you're all safe and well I've had a Fluval 57L Flex set up for a while and my Crystal Reds are breeding well. However, during a recent water-change I noticed a few juvenile shrimplets in the first and second chambers (from left to right). I managed to fish them out with a tiny...

    Hello all From Leeds : New Fishkeeper eager to learn from you lot.

    Hello all. I used to have fish when I was younger, but now I want to be more serious and really learn the craft of fish keeping and hardscaping. I have just purchased a Fluval Roam 240 tank. I have all the gear baring plants, rocks and wood and am keen to get going. I will probably be asking...

    Nano heater recommendations?

    I'm looking for a nano style heater for my Mini M, something that is low profile and won't distract from the scape. I was using an Eheim Jager but it's so obtrusive. I have tried both the Fluval Edge heater and Newa Therm Mini 20p but both can't seem to get the tank water over 20C. They both...

    Hello from the North!

    I'm going to assume based on the members map I'm not the only person from the North East, anyway I've always used UKAPS for things like finding reviews and information but finally decided to join and hopefully learn and share my own wisdom. I've been plantkeeping for around a year, and I'm...

    I am going to be getting a Nano tank or building one myself soon that will be able to fit within my Ikea Expedit or Bonde bookshelf.* Hoping to do a small aquascape in there and intend to have a single betta and maybe a shrimp or two. I already have a betta that I bought but her shipment has...

    Hello from Indonesia

    Hi folks, Nice to meet you all. I had a marine tank long time ago before the internet and I remembered how difficult it was to start and after two years there was a catastrophe and all fishes died. Then I abandoned the hobby. I didn't know about New Tank Syndrome or Old Tank Syndrome back...

    Advice on temporary homing fish/inverts

    I am planning to re-scape our tank but will need to have temporary accommodation for the fish (5 Endler's Guppy, 1 Danio, 5 Amano shrimp and 5 Nerite snails. I was already thinking of setting up a second tank and thought that this may be a good temporary home. I envisage it will take a couple...

    Nano heater recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations for a heater to go into the 23l (6 US GAL) Fluval Edge in white (see below). The tank will be planted but I would like the heater to be as invisible as possible. Does anyone know of a glass, white or perhaps a stainless steel heater for this size of tank?

    Hi, Recently purchased a Fluval Fresh F90, the Fluval Aqualife and plant LED came with it but am not sure whether this is better than what I have now in terms of growing plants; for the price the light costs I feel like it should be but as I have other lighting options I would like to know which...

    Fluval 88g

    I have recently purchased a Fluval 88g System. I have read up on it and apparently the disposable cartridges will drain my wallet even on a 60L. I do a little shooting with Air Rifles and use a pressurised (diving bottle) to fill them up with. I believe it is a 3 litre bottle. Would I be...

    Fluval mini Co2 88g

    Hi all, Recently bought myself a Fluval mini Pressurized Co2 System (88g) and was planning on using it in a 30l cube to aid my 'cuba' carpet when I set the tank up. This is probably a really dumb question but if I don't ask I will never know. So do I have to use the tiny refill cartridges, i'm...

    What do you think? Too much wood...

    First of all, I don't people telling me that my substrate and gravel choices are bad or my stone should be moved/ changed. This is simply for feedback on my redmoor placing. So with that established, I am setting up a planted aquarium using a 200L (43G) Fluval aquarium. I have a JBL 2kg CO2...

    Tip for noisy external Fluval filters

    My filter has been making the most unhealthy noise lately and just wanted to share what fixed the problem, I'm actually amazed at how quiet the filter is now. After replacing most of the parts, I finally narrowed it down to the lid that goes on the upper most media basket. Turns out the clips...

    Twin Specs

    Whilst my big tank is growing in in the back ground I thought I'd get another journal going purely for shrimp and maybe a couple of my paros in one.. So I've gone and got 2 fluval spec 19litres to try and scape up which I thought would be a fun challenge. Both will be on opposite sides of the...
