looks like the fish is going in with my coldwater ones and taking his chances until we find him a home. hopefully with it being warm the water wont be too cold for him

nothing a bit of silicon can't fix, drain and dry it then go to B&Q and buy a tibe of clean silicon, will cost less than £5

nah we wouldnt bin it, some good ornaments and plenty gravel and plants that would be of use to someone, just the actual tank itself is no good. poor little fishie though i dont want to give him away but my mother has no heart. hes a double of the one on the pic

I would try the suggestion. Easiest thing would be to grab that silcon, and go round the full stretch of the bottom of the tank. Leave it for a day. Stick the fish in another kitchen bowl with the pump for a day and bobs your uncle. Anyone could do it. You sure to find the leak under a tap. Wouldn't start debating getting rid of it unless you really didn't want it. I'm after one as its good for stress, I have heard.

now im being told just normal silicon is poisonous to fish, and you need a special type of silicony stuff (i dont know) to seal the tank. so i said i will be able to get some off the internet to which the mother said she cant be chewed emptying the tank to fill it back up again. shame you didnt live up north, you could have had the little fella and everything in the tank, with just a tank to buy

I think most pet shops would have the aqua silicone in-store if not a DIY outlet should

It's fine if you get 100% non toxic silicone and leave if 24-48 hours to cure.

Buy another fish and then tell your mum you are not doing it for just one :thumbsup:

all of a sudden the water just started gushing all over the carpet! a seal had come away in the bottom of the tank. so it was a mad rush to get buckets and empty them whilst using the carpet washer to suck the water up off the carpet lol. but everythings sorted now, the little fishie has a new home with my deputy manager from work
