OK bit rushed but thought I would get us started. This is the large bag from aquaholics online, its a fair bit heavier than your standard fish bag lol I would usually reccomend fasting the fish for a day, and perhaps adding a drop of an ammonia binding chemical, or even stress coat. You want the fish in the best quality water possible while in the bag, as they do not have dilution on their side any more due to the small volume of water a bag holds. Going to try make this thread a handy one, so will start off slow and get into the more advanced bagging techniques. Also will get some more videos, showing the finger movements I use when initially putting the band on the bag. IMHO thats the hardest bit of all. Theres no right way to tie a bag, my method is merely the one I have settled on after tieing many thousands of them. If you have tips or different methods PLEASE contribute them. Lets make this a one stop shop for bagging tips! I am always keen to improve my bagging method!
Carried over from another thread.................. Within 3 days they had got me the aqua one "walking sticks" ie the inlet and outlet pipes that other LFS's knew nothing about, that google revealed nothing with an "Aqua one canister filter spares" search, that the aqua one spare parts documentation revealed nothing, and that I had just about given up on. For those of you with wide tie bars and fluval filters, these aqua one spares will solve your problems. They easily go over wide tie bars and fit fluval hoses. Thank you redland pets.
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
