I've never seen a fish tank deal here without people saying it's a bad tank or you need at least 30 gallons per neon tetra.
Obviously given the design of the tank I'd say you'd need to do weekly 20-30% water changes (around 1/2 a bucket), and yes.. an algae loach should be fine (catfish don't eat algae by the way, they just eat food at the bottom).

I've had a 60l BiOrb for around four years for example, and with them you always read about people complaining because of the algae problems... I've seen some put in eBay in horrific conditions. But after weekly changes in mine I've never seen one spot on algae in it...
Although I will agree with electrogear in that the oxygen exchange is really poor in these. You should ideally have a few inches gap and have a current moving on top to oxygenate the water...

looks nice was temtped still seen at this price but u guys are putting me off, on the utube they look like they never clean them and say they never empty the tank right out?.. maybe throw a dwarf algue catfish eater in?
These are terrible tanks. Difficult to clean and get things in/out of. Oxygen exchange extremely poor. Physical size much too small to keep most fish. Wouldn't bother personally.
waby1234 that rule only applies for tropical fish if people aren't already aware.
@silverblack the algae is due to water and nutrient conditions ... Not the tank!

I now have a 90 LT tank same water, same conditions ,but less maintenace,less cleaning and less algae.

[QUOTE=mamboboy;8477146]It doesn't come with a heater mate :) I'd personally go with a coldwater catfish/loach over snails (unless you can find a single large one). Most snails breed like wildfire and will quickly become a nuisance, as they could probably add to the algae as opposed to clean it.

thanks for the info coldwater catfish and loach it shall be then, have some more rep.

last time i went to you link it took me to a different tank so i think they're website mucked me about, good it doesn't have a heater then as my friend have some cold water fish that had loads of babies and they don't have room for them all.

*goes of to look at catfish and loach
Just noticed my post on, entitled "Charterhouse Aquatics Dodgy?" is at number 4 on google. It really does pay to reply to e-mails.
Agree with this, this company are quick enough to take your money, but if you have any problems or questions you can forget it, they just dont want to know.

Think of overlockers but instead of pc hardware, fish! lol

The way I see it - most companies get 90%+ of their orders spot on. It's not hard delivering the right product at the right time.

The other 10% of orders have some kind of problem.

It's how you deal with that 10% that matters. I've recently had an experience with a furniture company, and although it took a while to sort out, they heavily discounted the order to compensate, waived the delivery charges, and sent a replacement. I don't think they made any money on the order. As a result, I can only assume they want my repeat business.

Charterhouse Aquatics clearly don't want repeat business. There are quite a lot of reviews of them that aren't good about.
Sorry, but it's a bit more complicated than you are suggesting. That said there is a whole industry of misinformation to sell you stuff that won't really help.

Edit: I haven't had fish for years and I only ever had a very robust cold-water set-up but it is a very complex business and hence there is a whole world of ******** out there to take your money.

A bucket of water left overnight is the easy way to get rid of chlorine and other chemicals in your water, then just add 1 capful of Nutrafin Aqua+ water conditioner and bobs your uncle..nice clean water no nasty chemicals and the water won't give the fish a nasty shock because its to cold straight from the tap, It'll be room temperature already, the nutrafin will coat the fishes outer scales in a nice protective mucus and the bacteria in the filter will be having a party by the end of the evening...Job done!!

Its easy when you know how..:-D

Not all information is mis-information. Some is quite clear. Chlorine kills bacteria. Simple.

Leaving a bucket of water out over night is not very practical for larger tanks or when you have kids. I change out 40 litres in my 180 litre tank every week so this would just not be possible. 1ml of King British Safe Guard to remove the chlorine and 1ml of King British Safe Water for conditioning in every 10 litre bucket of tap water does the trick. Job done.
This for marine or tropical fish? or both? (not at the same time i know lol)

Does your orca tank come with a heater too ?
I am thinking about getting & keeping Tetras too

I don't think they do but you can pick one up for around £10-15 off the same website

@Tenex, that was my main concern, but the parts are actually really cheap. Charterhouse have almost everything apart from the lights from what I can see, but you can get that elsewhere:

Here's mine BTW:

Cheers. That tank is looking good, wish I was more successful with plants and design. Getting more tempted, but also considering the Fluval Duo 600 which is a good price on eBay at the moment. Actually the most limiting feature just now is having furniture to put it on oddly.
Out of interest who sells the consumables for this tank? Any idea what they cost?
Looks nice, don't put anymore fish in it though. Being a tall tank and having opted for goldfish 2 is about the max you should be looking at.
Also yes, the pump does need to run all the time, the pump is running the filter, and the filter is where the beneficial bacteria grow that deal with the toxins etc in the water. Without a continuous flow of water through the filter the bacteria will die off. If you find the flow is disturbing the fish too much you may be able to diffuse it by placing something in front of the outlet, or fashioning a spray bar type arrangement.
