Rescape of Kieran’s 64L and Panda Corys

Tuesday 3.11.15 Now that my tank doesn’t contain a large Fluval U2 submersible filter (as I bought a new external canister filter) and neither any Bristle Nose catfish it’s time for a rescape. I realised I can change the layout quite a bit. Originally having a large piece of bog wood, and now a large gap … Continue reading Rescape of Kieran’s 64L and Panda Corys

A new ‘just for pets’ opened up

A new ‘just for pets’ opened up and I had to go have a look at the fish section. Listening to the advice of the shop keepers is a bit upsetting, the bloke telling someone to leave the tank for 3-5 days before adding fish. But everything is brand new and they have some lovely … Continue reading A new ‘just for pets’ opened up

Just set up my Fluval 206 on my 64L tank!

What a nightmare! It’s took me about 4 hours to set up my Fluval 206 Canister filter. It’s not down to the filter though of course. The Fluval 206 canister filter is working fantastic.

Update on my Aquarium’s Nitrite poisoning

Update of previous post ..five days earlier. The Nitrite poisoning has finally disappeared, after loosing four fish. I was doing a test everyday for nitrite, and at first it wasn’t budging, at all. I even checked my standard water to see what the results would be. Then yesterdays test, with the fish water, looked a … Continue reading Update on my Aquarium’s Nitrite poisoning

How to test your fish water and resolving nitrite poisoning

After hours of researching I’m hoping what I have learnt may help people who are having the same issues and questions that I had. Iv had 7 White Cloud Mountain minnows for roughly a year now and they’ve been fine, however after moving them to a new tank with more fish, a few have started … Continue reading How to test your fish water and resolving nitrite poisoning
