    BN and afticans

    Hi depends on many things Im currently growing 15 fronts and have some b/nose in the tank when the fronts get bigger the bnose will be bigger also, but if a front decides to eat it yeah they will have a go. As christmas said depends on tank and hidey holes for bnose. When the fronts get bigger and start breeding you will probably find you will need to rehouse the bnose. Because a you wont want small hidey holes (fronts when breeding love to move stuff around and may crush the bnose) and some fronts get super agro when breeding. So fine when growing em up just keep and eye when fronts get to decent size Pete

    Firstly, welcome to the forum this is a great forum with lots of advice and helpful members. I dont keep marine myself, but would recommend you put something in the marine section and maybe chat in the chat room when you see people in there Yes this forum will save you money and give good advice. hope you stay and become superactive Peter (smiley)
  5.

I used to run give aways and auctions and stuff from the chat room

    Sick of coming home to dead albino LF BN!

    i personally have found the pale long fins to be extremely soft the nice darker golden color ones much stronger and more robust sorry to hear about the loss pete

    under gravel jets

    i never used jets as such i just made holes in the pipe to adjust the flow the smaller holes were closer to inlet so rather than water being pushed out in a few places it can be dispersed more evenly pete

    under gravel jets

    not sure about the jets but it used to be called reverse undergravels works great normally ive used conduit and made like s shapes around the tank drill holes so it points in many directions and hook to outlet of filter this has the benefit of keeping gravel superbly clean but a couple of draw backs 1 you need super strong filter the filter will have to pump the return back through gravel 2 any fish that dig will expose the pipes and will render useless 3 you need to find just the right sized holes and the right number so as to work properly without making huge back pressure or making holes too big to be blocked but if done right is fantastic way of doing it peter
