    I have a 3ft with an Oscar and silver dollars in it that will be transferd to my new 4x2x2 this week (6/3/14). I'm looking for assorted plants and feeder fish to breed, also looking for more large silver dollars and drift wood. Will also need a light.

  1. Thanks guys they seem to be only a Couple in there every few days now. Thank god they didn't get into my oscar tank they where just in the 3ft tank. I'm now extremely careful when adding new this to my tanks now. I quarantine fish but never thought about the plants. Lesson learnt lol.
  2. .Hi I'm in the process of selling off al my fish I was wondering about my albino oscar and haw much I should ask for it? It's about 35cm + and only 3 yrs old.
  3. They the tiny ones they haven drown bigger than about 10mm. Thank you the strawberry container seems to be working.
  4. Hi I have gone to my tank today to find billions of tiny snails they have clogged the filter to the point of it almost stopping I have BN, cherries, and about 100platy fry and adults in there. How can I get rid of the snails every day there are hundreds more.
  5. Can I put one of the shogun 500w in my 3x1.5x1.5 as it's the same price pretty much as the smaller ones?
  6. Where can you get large sheets of styro from? Please is there a brand or type of heater that would be better. I am yet to buy heaters for the tanks as we had room temp regulator things in the house and temp of water was perfect.
  7. Hi I'm in the process of moving and have never had to put my tanks in a garage or shed but I have no choice this time as we didn't get much notice to move and had to take whatever house we could get so they will have to go in the garage/shed detached from the house and not lined. So the question is what kind of heating is the best kind of heating and most reliable for my 4x2x2 with oscar, silver dollars, and BN. 3x1.5x1.5 with cherries, platties, BN, The normal out door temp at the moment is getting down to around 3 or 4. Might be less I haven't been awake in early morning to check the actual temp.
  8. Hi I have just been given notice that my lease is up and they aren't renewing grrrrr I have a 4x2x2 and a 3x1.5, in the 4ft I have an oscar, 5 silver dollars and a few BN In the 3 ft I have cherrie shrimp, plates (adult and a ton of fry), about 10 BN's. I do have an extra internal filter I always have running in the 4fter in case of emergencies so it is fully cycled. What is the best way to move these tanks? I have managed to rent the house next door so we don't have far to go but how do I move the shrimp and can I leave the gravel in the bottom with some water? I have no idea:noidea: . Any advice would be great please. I'm moving in about 3 weeks as I didn't get much notice because of being a private rental.
  9. Donny I was just reading the thread about nitro guard would this help?
  10. Just wondering what everyone's favourite oscar food would be? How much and how often? My oscar gets fed daily with hikari cichlid gold but I'm finding he is a bit skinny compared to a lot of other oscars I have seen. There is never any left overs at meal times and is generally happy to play.
  11. Thank you. I have platies in there at the moment. And some elodea. What type of salt should I use? Thank you.
