Also, some fish stores will give you rubbish info, so google is your friend. Examples over the years include: Q: how big will this crab grow? A: not much bigger than it is -> 5 years later said crab is about 40cm larger than the 3cm that it was.Q: what kind of water does this fish need? A: freshwater -> It wasn't. "Brackish" is not fresh. It died that night. - Otherwise look for symptoms. All fish doing the same thing (eg gasping at the top) is generally a sign you might want to change the water every day for a few days (theres various reasons for this but most are fixed with water changes). Also - test the water, you'll probably find the answer that way. - fish off balance or acting oddly can be diseased or infected and this can pass to other fish, although disease is less common than you think, for example I've never seen any disease in my tanks thankfully in my whole time keeping fish. But - learn how to look for diseases in fish shops, you'd be surprised how many diseased fish are for sale in pet shops...overcrowding I think causes this. Mouth is the first place to start looking, there shouldn't be any blobs or fluff on or around the mouth. If one fish in a tank is diseased DONT buy any other fish from that tank, and check if the store has a central water pumping system as sometimes this could pass disease to ANY fish in the store. I have been known to leg it from such stores without buying a fish. I've always found fish extremely easy to keep tbh, even the so called "tricky" ones. I think the key is not overstocking the tank. I'd probably put something like 4 angel fish, 10 small (tetra size) and 2-4 bottom feeders like cory catfish in the tank on offer. And some shrimps, so long as the angels are added when small then they wont eat them. And a nerite snail. If you lost 40+ in a row then I would guess something is very wrong, something like perhaps you are cleaning things in the tank with bleach which is a sure fire fish killer, or you're not dechlorinating, or overstocking, or the temp is wrong, or even your significant other isn't a fan of fish and is sabotaging them (lol - could happen!). Try easier fish, angelfish are a lot hardier than you might believe, gourami are pretty easy too. Goldfish are actually a real pain because they cr*p a lot and poison themselves. Oh - also - super important - add the fish in slowly. Buy 2, leave them in for a week or at least a few days, buy another 2, and so on. The tank needs to adjust its bacteria levels to digest the fish poop, so the slower you add the fish, the less you spike the ammonia levels.OK time to stop waffling on and get back to work



Thanks for that. I never had more than about 10 fish in there at any one time. Mostly the size of neon tetras so overcrowding shouldn't have been a problem in a 125l tank. All bought from local Maidenhead Aquatics so reasonably reputable etc.
Initially I added to tap water to change Ph levels but Maidenhead said that this was not necessary so I just added Nutrafin Aqua+ and Nutrafin Cycle. Water was regularly tested incl taking sample to Maidenhead for them to test a couple of times. All test results within acceptable limits.
I was using a Fluval 3 filter and someone has suggested using an external filter so may give that a go next time.
The only problem that I had was copious amounts of green algae - despite changing water (30%) every 2 weeks. I don't know what caused that and if that would have had a detrimental effect on the fish.

This is fab, nothing like being able to catch your own fish for dinner.

Bought my fishtank from loot, (slightly bigger than this one)
had a fluval 4 (internal which works great) for long time

then went for a external filter tetra ex1200 seems to be keeping the water clean, but also the tank looks bigger because i've removed the internal filter

( i have an understocked tank (few fish)

I am using cat litter as the substrate (the pink one) looks really nice lot cheaper than any aquarium gravel

plastic plants never look good,All the plants bought off ebay dont buy any sets or packs of plants, there is nothing wrong with them, its just you end up with lots of big plants and no real shape to your tank. just do a little research and find the ones you want and where you will put them, the same people design gardens

I had a tank delivered a couple of weeks back they also called on the morning with a more accurate time. The chap lowered it on a pallet and once I'd inspected it and taken it into the house he took the pallet away with him. I was a little worried by the email of delivery demands too.

I got the 80cm Aquael Ecoline Bow which is on offer for £99 rather than £145 as it is end of life, feel free to post it as a deal as I can't be bothered.

Had a call today from 'Palletways' who apparently handle all seapets tank deliveries. Coming on Monday - couldnt give me an exact time, was just told anywhere between 9 and 5 (altho their website says deliveries start at 7am! . From the looks of things its delivered attached to a pallet (which you have to dispose of if any of the reviews are correct).

Got a big email from seapets demanding I check every inch of the glass before signing for the tank, saying they will not provide a replacement if its damaged and you've signed for it (which IIRC is illegal).

Anyhoo hopefully it'll get here and all be ok - can't wait to get started on it. Moving up from a Lido 120.

I highly recommend joining tropicalfishforums.co.uk if you havent already - some great info and people on there. I'm 'RickM' over there.

Couldn't agree more.

Having worked in the aquatics industry for some time, I always try to advise those new to the hobby to buy as big as their budget and space permits, as it will be easier in the long run.

Following all of the hubbub of this thread, while at the carboot this morning I actually picked up a black Fluval Edge for £10, with the standard halogen bulb fitments...after a bit of tinkering, it now runs a 40+ LED light bar and I've moved my Bettas (and a grumpy old Swordtail!) over into the tank, from their old 15L setup, to see how they do...will be interesting:

It seems pretty silly to me also. Do their internal organs come out of their bottoms or mouth when they don't fit anymore?

Not so much the cost, all it seems to be realistically is a thermometer and light senser, I can see the light and water level by looking at the tank. So really its a £50 thermometer, I reckon that can be sorted cheaper.

As for testing the water, it needs doing manually with this, so may as well stick to the chemicals

Earlier this year I bought a second tank, a Juwel Trigon 350 on eBay, paid just £80 for it. Just needed a new pump / filter and 1 new tube - all in about £100. Plus a few hours of my time to give it a good clean up.I wish folk would read up on aquairums before buying. Saves a lot of money and hassle in the long run. There's a lot more to it than filling a glass tank with water and fish ! oO



You could get alot better aquarium alot cheaper in the classifieds of aquarist classifieds, and possibly get help from the seller to set it up too. I would never buy a new tank agan, far too expensive when you can get good one second hand. Been keeping fish for over 20 years and in that time all my tanks have been second or third hand, only fish tank I had new was one given to me by my best friend... voted hot any way as not bad for a starter kit even though with a little research you could get better cheaper...

I don't know what your DIY skills are but, you'll have to carefully reinforce that cabinet with 18mm ply to be able to with stand the weight of your tank, as well as fixing it back securely to the wall. I'm a retired chippy so I can see what needs to be done.

It looks like a tank we had in the 80's. The plastic looks quite cheap and could be a problem if people ever get algae/mold growing on it. Juwell's other tanks are premium quality, but they also all start at around £200.The Orca Nano is an 80l tank with no seems on the corners (curved), and can easily be adjusted to suit Marine builds. Try to find a new 80l aquarium for £90 and then come back to me...


To be honest, I prefer a cheap tank thats made in Germany than a cheap tank thats made in China.
The last tank I bought was an AA aquarium (I think they are rebadged "Fish R Fun" aquariums in the UK) similar to the Orca with the curve corners from Tung Choi Street in HK and it started to leak after 4 years use. Hopefully, my Rekord 600 will last longer than 4 years.
BTW, aquariums and virtually all aquarium related products sold in Tung Choi Street HK are about half the price of the UK. It's more difficult to bring one over to the UK now that most of the major airlines have adopted a one luggage policy.

So you're saying 90 litres is too small? :?

Smaller than I would use for a decent community tank. The bigger the body of water, the more stable it is. Imputities are diluted, temperature fluctuations are less. The greater the surface area the greater the oxygen exchange
;-)

One thing to remember is the bigger the tank, the easier keeping fish is. 90 litres is something I wouldn't consider suitable for entrusting fish to a beginner

I wish I had the same situation, would love to save on my energy bill and not have to run a 150w heater.

What Arbuthnot says is quite interesting & possible too. If the filter is overheating, or just running very hot, then it will act as a heater. It can't be very energy efficient either

They were on a much larger cabinet, which suffered from MIFFY's SYNDROME. Just like MFI flat packs there were bits missing and some of the components were not identical. One even had an odd smaller plastic stand in it. One was so warped it went back. One tank was faulty and the plastic around the bottom of the tank snapped half an hour after being filled with water. As they stand they look really great after the problems had been solved. Full marks to my local Pets at Home on that part. However, that is not the end of the story, unfortunately I'm unable to use these tanks as the resident temperature without any heating being used is way up at 82 + f at the best of times. Even turning off the lights only drops the temperature down to 80 degrees at night, maybe 79 on a really cold night. As the temperature is well above the 70 degrees of the normal daytime room temperature, these tanks must have an inbuilt fault caused by the lighting and/or the filter overheating. I'd personally not buy anymore, least ways not until I can find a way around the heat problems.



Ummm, are your sure it's not the fact that you have the temperature turned too high? All heaters these days are combined heater/thermostats and all are adjustable with a range of 16-30 degrees C. That's probably between 60 and 90 in old money. ;-)

If you really don't have your heater installed or switched on, then either Fluval have found a way to break the laws of physics and created heat without a heat source or you live in the Twilight zone!
