Re: Oldest and Biggest Clown Loach 24 years old and 11.5 inches total length

There was/is a member of this forum I believe called Emma Turner? She had a huge Clown fish which I think she called Madge, I think Madge was over a foot long but I could be wrong.

Re: Powerheads

Well after a LOT of reading and a lot of thinking I finally decided on on the Reef Surge 4000 Wavemaker. couldn't wait for it to come and try it in my tank.

Re: Foam bubbles on top of aquarium

The only things I have added new are plants glued to driftwood and some slate, a large slate cave and some pieces of slate silliconed together,
I have added some carbon to the filter, don't know if it will help but feeling disheartened at the thought of stripping it all down. :(

Re: Foam bubbles on top of aquarium

Yesterday I did about 25% water change which reduced the bubbles a lot, I noticed that the inside glass felt slimey. I have just tested for ammonia and there is none.

Re: Foam bubbles on top of aquarium

I've never done a fishless cyle so am not familiar with the procedure, I usually start with a portion of mature media from another tank and slowly build from that, this time I was going to give that "ATM Colony" a try.

Foam bubbles on top of aquarium

My weather loach tank is almost finished, have strong surface water agitation and also large external filter outlet. I now seem to have foamy bubbles forming on the surface round the edge. Is this a problem or just the agitation of the water. There are no fish in it at the moment.

Re: Prince Harry

yes they have to move with the times I guess. It's a pity that Princess Margaret wasn't allowed to marry the man of her choice because he was divorced!! yet Meghan is divorced and now it doesn't matter.
