  1. I have an aquarium similar to this one. Cracked>exploded>made a mess>bought a new one. Now I'm left with a choice of either throwing it out or making something good out of it. This is my idea I made it in Photoshop If anyone has some engineering experience it would be greatly appreciated. My thoughts are that if I silicone one divider where the crack is and leave that empty or put a plant in it or something. Then put a second divider in so that the water pressure is displaced between two bays instead of one. I would still like to filter both bays with one pump so I was thinking an overflow into one then maybe a siphon back to the other. I really don't want to have another flooded mess in my house so please let me know your thoughts if this would work or if I am wasting my time and $$ I think it will cost about $80 for the acrylic then some silicone. Here is the actual tank Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. .alright new hobby for me and all, lol.. so i decide to grow a barra.. got everything ready and great to go... they are live and kicking, consider it my first time.. have 4 of them in a 8ft tank, there surround with about 10 clawfish and 200 guppies.... alot of room to hide... however the barra ARE SLUGGISH, there about 5-8cm.. they chase it for like 2sec and give up... is it becuz the way i made it or they just that lazy in general? i have a feeling they stave to death the rate they try to feed at... should i be worried?
  4. Got a eheim 200w and if you look at pic looks like moisture inside the glass, is this bad? It doesn't seem to be accurate my new digital thermometer says 27 but I can't get it to correspond with the jager (the little red arrow can't turn anymore to line it up with 27) hope that last part made sense
  5. I've got an Aqua One 1200 canister filter. On the weekend my husband helped me clean it (I usually do it myself) and after we primed it and got it going again it was making a horrible noise. So I pulled it apart, greased the impeller and checked all the pipes and joins. And now I just can't get it to work again. I prime it, then lift the outlet tube up and reconnect it to the spray bar, but when I turn the filter on it won't start working. It sounds like it's working but there just isn't enough pressure in the filter to get it flowing again. Is my filter broken or am I doing something wrong? The filter would be at least 5 years old.
  6. Woke up this morning to find that one of our discus must have been swimming around and bumped into driftwood as he has a bit of branch broken off and stuck in his head. Not sure what the best treatment would be, try and pull it out? or leave it and see if will come out by itself? Any suggestions?
  7. I have come to my conclusion that my FH is broken. Wont eat feeders anymore and is dam picky when it comes to food types and brands. This has only happened when i upgraded him to a 4x2x2 and since then he has lost his marbles. Use to hate BN with a passion and now lets them in his marble tile house/cave. I WANT MY SAVAGE FISH BACK. Not a big sissy of a fish....... Is it time to move him on or what. My bloody tetras are more savage for F-sake lol. As a young fella he was nuts.. He killed a jack of thr same size back then(15cm) but yeah, not no more!!! Anyone else ever had this happen? Its not a problem but loved watching him smash feeders and anything else...

  10. My oscars are AT LAST getting along ( whitch is good as ive still not found another tank) but i think my albino oscar has broken or maybe dislocated my newest tiger oscars jaw. I was going to house these two together when i get another tank.. They have locked jaws but i didnt think much of it, and in the last week the albino has finally been excepted and not hiding. I only just noticed today the jaw is off centre and it def was not like that last time i checked. Is this common and should i be worried? Ive not seen any more jaw locking, so assume a pecking order has been established. Will the jaw just heal? Hes eating normally.

  18. Yes... I accidentally dropped my 4ft dalbarb (Single 122 cm (4ft)) about 1 metre off the floor while I was removing the hood (with the light) from the tank. The switch that turns the light on, popped inside, so just wondering if I can just take the whole thing apart and try to fix it. Or do I have to replace a certain piece that holds the switch with the outer cover of the light? Also the 2 parts where the bulb is connected to came loose after the fall. Any way of getting it back to normal again? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Steve
  19. Hey guys, Picked up a couple of Salmon Tails this afternoon and they must have damaged themselves in transit. Will their damaged whiskers heal? One looks quite bad (90 degree bend). Cheers, Wellsey.
  20. One of the tie bars is cracked in my 6x2.........there's 2 spaced 2 foot apart. There is a small gap between the crack so perhaps the tank must have bowed slightly. Would you empty the tank and replace the tie bar or glaze another piece over it as is? Lesson to learn is if you light your tank (temporarily) with (hot) halogen lamps for photography........don't leave 'em on when you leave the room for 5 minutes kev
