Bit of a strange one this, but does anyone know where to get a decent fish tanks at reasonable prices?

I've had a small marine set up but want to add more fish, hence the need for a bigger tank although im not sure how big yet, anyone else have a reef aquarium that could reccomend anywhere? I need to keep my nemo's happy :pirate:

Cheers

I thought I was the one asking the questions :giggle:

to be honest i cant really answer any of them becuase I honestly havent put that much thought into it, Im just seeing whats available, just want to know if anyone can reccomend somewhere who has marine fish.

Shush you :p

I dunno what it is, but I just find that watching them swim is really relaxing (and slighly amusing, becuase clownfish swim funny) I originally got them to teach myself to become more responsible (which helps with the babi on the way) now im a bit more experienced with them I wanna move them into the living room and into a bigger tank, i think they'll be good visual aids when she gets older too.

clownfish are actually marine fish (difference being tropical fish live in fresh water and marine live in salt water)

Clownfish on their own aren't that difficult to keep, but they do require a bit of time as you have to keep the tank clean and change half the tank water every couple of weeks or so.

The set up i got was a cheap one (becuase I wanted to make sure I didnt kill them) from my local garden centre, it consisted of a small 48 litre tank with in built trickle filter and associated media (filterter sponge, activated carbon and ceramics) which I must say is pretty useless, i'd reccomend a bigger tank with external pumped filter and possibly a reverse osmosis unit (although if you put effort into keeping your nitrate and phostphate levels down its not essential) anyway, the tank, marine salt, sand bed, 5kg's of live rock salinity test and 2 clownfish for £140.

Its worth mentioning that you have to leave your aquarium to mature for about 2 weeks before adding the fish.

so to answer your questions, in order.

Now I want to add some more colour so thinking of adding a few other species as well as some live coral and a cleaner shrimp.

Not very hard, although time consuming - just do your research.
a tacky 48 litre palstic thing thats.
water (salt water that is) sand bed, decoration (live rock if possibe) heater (they are the bare essentials)
£140

worked though, im now a sad anoraky fish lover.

Ok not as demanding as a kid, but its a start, plus I didnt want a dog just yet till she's a little older (next debate is weather to get a husky or alaskan malamute, which is what i've always wanted or a beagle, becuase its a little girls dog.)

I HAD one :-(

Hopefully getting another in 3 or so weeks :-D
#14
sorry to hear that. what is it about poodles that you like?
#15
Everything, i actually didnt like them, thought they were the ugliest things id ever seen (this is TOY poodles im talking about, smallest you can get)
Then, my mum got one 1 1/2 ago now, best choice we ever made :)

Best, most loyal dog you could ever get :) Never, to this day known a nasty one either.

Plus, there excellent for alergy sufferers (not that any of my family are) as they dont actually have fur, but hair :)
And, they dont shed either :thumbsup: Only dog that actually doesnt.

Ill always have a poodle in my life someway or another now :thumbsup:
#16
the closest I'd ever get would be a labradoodle - I love that word!

I have strange mental images of your giving your dog a make-over..... this is why you want a little girl! lol suddenly it all falls into place lol.

when my girly is 2 im gonna tie my husky to her sledge and make it go mush! lol i just love the thought of that lol
#17
Nah, i dont do make my dogs over, although they do have pink diamonte collars and coats :oops:

This is Star, the poodle i had :

How excited am i?!

You like showbiz dogs? the first one is the dog from fraggle rock and the second looks like he's in the big brother diary room.
#19
:shock: How can you say my baby star looks like a fraggle :shock:

And, as for the yet unnamed poodle (currently called Bitzy, but TBH i dont like that, far not girly enough, im thinking mimi or princess :oops: )
She, is such a stunner, i fell in love the second i saw her
#20
not actually a fraggle, sprocket the dog.

you chicks and your wanting to make everything girly pink and glittery mentality eh?

Seriously how can you fall in love with a poodle, they are ugly! now malamutes are easy to fall in love with http://www.epupz.co.uk/image/image_upload/main/75940.jpg
#21
:shock: Poodles are far from ugly!
You get your mal, youll love the amount of fur your carpets will also recieve :)
But, also, look at that bed, all nice and chewed, good luck your going to need it :giggle:
#22
I dont mind fur, i grew up with a fox, an alsation and 2 border collies, i know the responsability that comes with dogs. better that than an ugly dog :lol:
#23
I never said you didnt know the responsibilitys :geek:
How did you grow up with a fox, wtf!

Poodles arent ugly, its just small mindedness, i used to think the same, but, ill never go back to not having one
#24
I know, but you were wishing me luck, im just saying I know what to expect.

I dont quite remember how the whole fox thing came about i was too young at the time. All I remember is that it was called basil (of course) and eventually ran away
#25
:giggle:
Ah, i dont envy going through the puppy stage,infact,im not looking forward to it at all!

A fox visits my garden every now and again, lucky me eh?!
