  1. Hi All, My current external filter doesnt seem to be coping with my tank. As i cant keep my nitrate levels down and i do weekly water changes of around 30%. I have a 320 litre Fish tank and im going over seas for 5 weeks in a couple of months. My friend will most likely only change the water every 1 half weeks. I just wondering what a good filter would be with a budget of 250 to 300 ? thanks
  2. Okay cool, so Does it matter what size sponge filter ? What's this big rubbery bucket u speak of lol? When I move house it's only about 15 minutes away so I could just leave media how is yeah?
  3. hello the 5ft tank is a 5x18"x18 1500x460x460 which should be fine for that filter right ? i read 2000l per hour is good for up to 700 litres ?. I actually dont have a sponge filters, i used a mates one when i first set up 3ft. SHould i get a sponge filter now and stick it in current tank for a month before moving ? thanks for help so far
  4. Hello All, Next month i will be moving house and also upgrading to a 5ft tank. my Current tank (3ft) has about 10 africains,loch,silver shark & a upside down catfish in there. I was just wondering what is the best way to set up the 5ft tank? I will try to take as much water as i can from the 3ft along with the rocks and use the existing 2000/L h external filter. Should this be enough with out harming the fish ? thanks
  5. Hello all, First off I'm quite new to cichlids but I have had this tank runing for a couple of months. Currently I have about 8 cichlids,clown loach ,silver shark and a upside down catfish in 3ft tank. The biggest cichlid I have is around 7cm stocky build, the 2 that disappeared where around 3cm. One I found a small brown carcus other completely gone. Any ideas what's happening ? Thanks
  6. Well I have 3 tanks set up, 1 is a 3ft tank with 5 small Africans and 2 cat fish in it, which has a 2000l\hour canister filter and a airpump. The other is a 50litre tank which has a built in filter I already change the carbon every 4-5 weeks leaving the rings as be. It's my community tank got male fighter few females, sum tetras, 2 guppies and a pleco . 3rd tank is only 15 liters with a male fighter and sum shrimp it has a sponge filter in it. Thanks for responses
