buying first home forces sidthimunki rehome

Hello please can anyone advise where to advertise my 5 chains for rehoming. I will want them (desperately!) to go to a good (loach enthusiast) home, or I fear I will change my mind (as I have done many times over already- sorry Ashleigh!) There are 3 male and 2 fatty females. All aged between 8&10 a...

Advise pls - where to advertise? Selling tanks and loaches

Hi there everyone It is with great distress that I have reluctantly decided to sell my whole set up and loaches. I would love it if I could ensure the loaches go to a good home, one where other loaches preside! I have a very long list of equipment and fish tanks that I will need to sell also. I am b...

Can anyone help me re-home my 6 Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki?

(I also have 1, very precious to me, Epalzeorhynchus sp. and 1 Corydoras Trilineatus and 4 Devario aequipinnatus that would need a new home) Would anyone be able to offer my loaches (or all of the fish above) a good 'loach enthusiast' home? I have unfortunately had to forfeit (store away) my 4ft tan...

Re: lowest lph for Hillies?

Sorry for the confusion Jim. I guess what I am trying to ask is - I have an external filter to begin with with it's 1300lph capability - is it enough as it is? And if not, what else will I need to create adequate 'river flow accomodation' for hillies? Another of the same and....? Thanks ps I am havi...

Re: lowest lph for Hillies?

Thank you!

I would ideally have my tank set up in a 'river flow' way - my tank is 4ftx2ftx2ft :) But they would be in the aforementioned 4ft tank with 1300lph external filter. Good enough? Or re-think?

Thank you all for your time.

lowest lph for Hillies?

I would love to get some hillstream loaches, but only have 1300lph external filter.

Am I right in remembering they need 2000lph minimum???

Any info gratefully recvd.

Pics of my new set up

Thank you to peeps who have helped me decide what to do with the new tank set up. I did not get Denison's barbs in the end, but am building up numbers of all my existing fish - especially the pygmy cories :) It is however a slow process due to cost. I was disappointed when I went to my local 'fish s...

Re: Hood or tray..or neither?

I would not go lid-less on this tank, even with the water a bit lower. With your current list, I think there is room for Denison's Barbs. They might play around with the Danios: Both are active, fast moving fish that will zip from one end to the other in this tank. What is the actual species of the...

Hood or tray..or neither?

I am about to move my fish from a 2.5ft tank to a 4ft tank. The 4ft tank has been used for my terrapins and they have the clearseal open tank. The terrapins have been using the Fluval 405 external filter and I intend to use this for the fish(emptied and cleaned thoroughly first - with new filter med...

Re: Denison's barbs & 4ft tank - big enough??

Thank you everyone for your advice :D yes, I feared the little guys of the tank would be compromised if I got the barbs. hmm. The 4ft tank currently has an external fluval 405 would this provide adequate aeration for the barbs, with 1300lph? I could always increase the number of dwarf corys to a muc...

Denison's barbs & 4ft tank - big enough??

Hello I have recently decided to re-home my terrapins that are currently in a 4ft clearseal tank. (The re-homing of the terrapins takes some explaining - I have put up a post on RFUK about them. If anyone on here has any connections please contact me - 2 male ouachita terrapins) The reason I am post...

Thanks!

48 x 12 x 15 inches is pretty close to 38 American gallons. A full tank, with substrate, stand, and equipment can roughly be figured at 10 lbs per (American) gallon, so call it 380 lbs. 122 x 30 x 38 cm = 139 liters. Yes, water weighs 1 kg per liter, and you should multiply that by roughly 1.2 to g...
