Sera is a solid German brand, their tropical fish food is great, cant say I know much about their marine salt.
Fair price but I'd only recommend for a fish only or soft coral system. Stick with the more reputable brands for anything with a lot of corals or be prepped to supplement. Amazon recently have had a lot of marine stuff pretty cheap...if you check out Amazon Germany or Italy you can get Sicce pumps really cheap!
Thanks, ah, I've got the gravel now but will keep in mind for the inevitable 2nd tank (:I I'd not researched plants at all so that's really kind of you to take the time to reply, thank you
I would suggest "sand" instead of gravel, supports more type of plants and some fish are more comfortable. For a beginning plant, I would suggest getting anubias var barteri, or anubias nana. They are the most sturdy plants i have experienced. And also most fish dont like the taste of them so it can go with variety of fish. If you still want to feed them while you are gone, i would suggest buying an auto feeder instead of these cubes.
Thanks Artex. Only a week so that's really useful to know. We do plan to have live plants also...well, they'll be live when we put the plant/fish in, can't guarantee anything beyond that! :) Got the 140l tank, gravel, heater, temperature controller, external filter and lights on order. Any other tips on what I need would be appreciated!
How long are you gonna be away? Most fish are ok not to eat for couple of weeks, even longer if you have live plants.
What do you recommend instead pls? (just setting up my first tank and have a holiday planned in 5 weeks time). Thanks

OP Stan, Not having a go at you, but can you please put better titles on your posts. It's unclear what some are without clicking on it to read the rest of the info. Your could've put that it's for fish tank or aquarium to make it a bit clearer. Same as that fenox one. I didn't know what that was till I read the whole post. Thanks.
Does it support ALT-mode DP over USB-C?
This is a router with a very unconventional design. For military, 'in the field', use, I like to think.
It’s been a while since I docked my turtle 🤭
I love a niche deal! Heeeeeat!

This is £7.20 in pets at home but also comes with a large tub of tetramin flakes or pleco wafers.
Another vote for Seachem Prime here been using it for ages, lasts a long time. I put some of this and a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda when changing the water as my Ph is always low after water change.

Better of with chlor go, highly concentrated and also removes copper etc. Far more economical, I use this as I also keep apple snails. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nt-Labs-Chlor-Go-1-Litre/dp/B00NMJ3RKG/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?adgrpid=106396149599&gclid=CjwKCAiArOqOBhBmEiwAsgeLmW4S-VIgmlhYAzWmFc05OcnZUryqkCJmCwg_XdLrQrKEw2RZl9uUPBoC1ZEQAvD_BwE&hvadid=458109158068&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=9045260&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=12114280317257955126&hvtargid=kwd-314873803336&hydadcr=4563_1709959&keywords=chlor-go&qid=1641733174&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&smid=A35NZ4P5K7BAAZ&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzQkVRMTVNRUJOTzFKJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzQ3Mzk2QlgwTlZLQk1WVVFRJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA1OTMzOTgzUzY3V1JOTThVSjZDJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

I’ve just paid £19.99 for 10kg of koi food incl free next day delivery from a quality food seller on eBay….. which is what 600g of this stuff would cost….
That's a really bad deal, far from a "stonking offer". Winter time anyway, this is a basic deal and what fish keepers should be looking for, especially for their Koi... If you have Koi then you always need this every winter along with a lil Vit C booster etc etc I liked to add some granulated garlic too.

Went to pets 4 u today and found the tetra water safe bottle (250ml) to treat your fish tank water when you do a water change. Usually these bottles costs around £9 But they are actually gi…
One of the first things I'd ask my customers is what would be their ideal tank... then work with them on achieving that possibility within their price range as most people (me being one) will start small, buy lots, upgrade and to get to that final set up, waste a lot of money... If you can at least remove a portion of that scenario to save money, it could save you a potential fortune... Get your head in the books for the fish, ensure you get the ones you want and that are 100% compatible. Then, the natural gear like the IAL's - Indian Almond Leaves, Cuttle Fish etc.... both natural, help promote a natural environment and reduce the threat of infections but also increase the chances of breeding... Cuttle Fish - natural source of calcium etc, I was the first person to start using it for my snails, shrimps etc... Think I mentioned it earlier but there should still be a few sellers who do the bagged premium foods - so you can save a small bundle, you can also use some veg etc as long as you remove the uneaten (pollutes water) - research again - depends on your setup/fish. I think I've covered pretty much everything.... Oh, Java plants and Hornwort. I started with 1" of hornwort and makes £££££ selling it's continued growth over the years, excellent hardy plant, not the prettiest but survived trop, cold, koi, crays, crabs.... and avoid household plats like Dracs that some shops sell - probably Pets at Home still do - again, another bit of research for you :) ! Enjoy!!! and remember - Aquarist Classifieds - you'll find some great bargains and decent contacts, esp in the N/W - Mal Rimmer - one of the best in the North West!
Appreciate the time and effort 👌 I definitely got wiser after those couple of failures... My fish are doing grate now.
Should be common knowledge as they have always been about the ££££ You can walk up to a member of staff with your concerns over the fish in their tanks all being dead or dying and they don't care, nothing gets done and/or they will say they only cost pennies and they'll have more back in soon. The best place for any fish purchases is a store that will ask you about your set up before they let you buy anything as some, lots... will sell you nocturnal cats that will eat anything that will fit in their mouths alongside the tetras, guppies, danios etc that you purchased with them... Join some decent FB groups, try Aquarist Classifieds for fish/gear - get locally bred fish instead of weaker imported fish (be picky though)... Look for the natural remedies too like PDV salt, certain leaves, temp spikes etc to rid any problems or event better - prevention is better than the cure.... Lots of wise heads out there, just don't trust the shops who only see your money and not your set up. I'll finish on "the drip method" - research that, should help you with future fishy friends :)
Where were you years a go.. I spent a lot of money on fish that just kept dying off after a short period. I was blaming on everything else and just kept buying more stuff to avoid it and even blamed myself at some point for being bad career. Then we bought a few fish in the local garden centre and they survived for a long time until the marina heater decided to boil the water when we were a way, but saying that some fish still swim they survived that. In short I completely agree with you. 8)
Yeah, all the seachem products are very good in my opinion. Nothing else comes close, I'd have to mortgage my house to fund aquasafe for the amount of water I change a week

The irony will be when these are disposed of in 6-8weeks it ends up in the sea and fishes get caught up in these nets. You can purchase zipped/drawstring nets to be used indefinitely if you really need nets in the first place.

Ooh! A letter from my old pen pal. Someday I'll write you back, Osama.
A large bucket.
I use the large one of these to house crickets & locusts in for our sons leopard gecko! It's much better & escape proof than the tanks actually meant for storing live insects!
Wouldn’t you end up with half the water tipped over your car and a dead goldfish? I’m in the midst of moving home, trying to work out the most sensible approach for moving half a dozen fully grown goldfish if anyone has any ideas :-)
I like how this looks! But I vote eheim filters too!
I used too use these on small tanks for holding females so the males didn't harass them,and once they released the fry and got a rest I'd put them back in the main tank at night...Great bit of kit (y)
Well I prefer hang on filters now because they are easy to access, service and clean. Previously I used all sorts of different filters (in/external), but never was happy with them. If it serves me 1 or 25 years, I am not bothered really.
Just buy a eheim pro 3 and your good for 25 years,I've got 2 2080's on my 500 litre African Cichlid Mbuna tank (y)
Why not? I need a new filter every two to three months because I am too lazy to clean it ;)
