  3. Looking to get some tanks custom built, and don't really wanto to go through any of the petstores. Looking for suggestions for reliable builders or the best place/way to get these built. Looking for 4 x 4fts, 2 ft wide and 18-20 tall (with lids). Two of the tanks would be divided in 4, creating four 2x1 tanks Two of the tanks would be divided in 2, creating two 2x2 tanks. Thanks! Just collecting info at the moment, so I can price out what I'm planning. Also need someone who can make me two sumps, each to run 2 of those 4fts at a time.

  11. Hey, I'm in the process of changing my 4ft oscar tank to a planted tank (without the oscar of course ). The tank size is 4' x 18" x 18" just over 200L with dw, plants and substrate. The fiter is a 1500l/h canister with also a 500l/h internal filter. I had a few ideas. 1. Between 3-5 pairs of dwarf cichlids, like rams and apistos 2. Discus maybe between 2-4 with a pair or 2 of the above dwarfs 3. Angles maybe 2-4 with a pair or 2 of the above dwarfs The above would all include about 4-6 otto catfish and a small school of rasboras or tetras. What do you guys think?? Any comments or other suggestions would e great Cheers Marty

There are also BN living in here Only set up a few hours ago, so please excuse cloudiness. 4ft ~ Maingano & BN (4-5 electric yellows to be added once tank settles) The only plant used is Java fern. Substrate is shell grit/sand mix.

  19. Hi guys, I got a 4ft x 18inch x 20inch tank on the weekend, and intend to set it up with african cichlids of some sort. I have been keeping a nice 2ft community planted tank with eheim 2213 and co2 for the past year with great success but always wanted a big tank for cichlids!! I'm quite excited to finally have the 4 ft tank. Filter is an eheim 2217, and possibly another internal if extra water movement is required. So far i've put 20kg of calcium carbonate and 9kg of eco complete cichlid sand in the tank and have a few mollies in there to help start the bacteria seeding process. pH is 8.0 Looking for advice on selection of the cichlids... i have been trying to research the lakes malawai, tang and victorian but having trouble deciding which lake i should select species from... or possibly mix. Looking at getting approx 6 - 8 fish. I don't want to overstock the tank. Any general advice would be helpful, i've tried googling but nothing much has come up. Also, if anyone knows of a good source for structures/caves/rocks that isn't too expensive let me know. Otherwise i will probably end up getting some of the imported limestone rock from my local fish store (but it's $9/kg, so very expensive!) Thanks in advance!
  20. I noticed last night a few of my cichlids have a few white spots, and were flashing etc. I knew right away it was white spot, i had it a couple years ago when i first set up my 2 foot tank. The two clown loaches are fine so far *touch wood*. I suspect one of the reasons was my Fluval Tronic Heater... it seems terribly inaccurate and i'm wishing I had spent an extra 10 bucks and got the Jager heater! I had the Fluval heater set to 27 degrees since i set up this tank around 5 weeks ago, but the themometer read 24 degrees... i believed the heater but i should have believed the thermometer because i've now tested it with two thermometers and both give the same reading. So the Fluval heater was WAY OFF!!! 3 or 4 degrees off. Anyway... not wanting to stain my entire tank green i've decided to try the salt and temperature treatment. Temp was up to 29 this morning (the fluval claims it's 33 but it's wrong). I've upped it an extra degree to hopefully reach 30 degrees. Also added an extra 25Watt heater to help it along - again this confirmed my suspicions that the Fluval temperature accuracy was way off as i was able to get another temp reading. Added salt last night (non-iodized, plain sea salt with no additives), 12 tablespoons for the 250L tank. I had read widely varying instructions on amount of salt per volume of water so i hope i got it right. When i first added the salt, the fish went a bit crazy for about 5 mins, then they got used to it and have been fine since. They're much more active now at the higher temp too, but seem quite happy and are feeding as normal. Will update here over the coming weeks.
  21. Hi! I am planning a new 48in x 15in (wide) x 18in aquarium. My calculations (using the surface area method) allow for minimum of 45in of fish, which I intend to keep to. This is my current stocking idea: * Red-tailed black shark [5in] (mandatory -- already own) * 10 cardinal tetras [12.5in] * 6 neon praecox rainbowfish [15in] * 2 paired killifish [4in] * 2 angelfish [6in?]??? * bottom-dweller / cory catfish [2.5in]??? I'd like to know what anybody thinks of this idea? Are there too many top-dwellers? Are the fish incompatible? I am fairly set on the shark / cardinal / rainbowfish combination --- is the rest of the stocking acceptable? If so, any ideas on bottom dwellers? Many thanks Michael
