Where's a good place online to buy a tank (new)? Ta.
bought a tank from these guys.
Cheers, I'll give them a go
If I was buying new, I would definitely be checking out the offers at www.ndaquatics.co.uk
For example, they have a tropical 6x2x2 with cabinet and hood for £699 at the moment
Some more additions since my last post here:
and this gorgeous fella:
So how many shrimps is too many in a tank?
I counted 30 RCS in my 70L earlier, but there are two or three more females that are berried.
They sit nicely alongside my Danios and WCCM, but I'm experiencing a population explosion!
I'm breaking my tank down next week. With my recent health problems, it's become impossible for me to maintain. Local shop has kindly agreed to take the fish, but I've still got loads of gear to get rid of, including the tank and a top of the range eheim professional canister filter. I'll be selling those.
How much do you think I should ask for an 18 month old Juwel Rio 180? Aquarium only, no cabinet. Filter would need fresh media too.
Very sad about the whole situation.
Bit risky, just Googled and company feedback is horrific; loads of missing deliveries, incomplete deliveries, broken tanks upon delivery with no refund or replacement sent despite multiple promises, etc and so on.
I bought my Juwel from them no probs. Remember, people very rarely comment on the Internet when everything goes well, only when it goes wrong.
To an extent I agree, but they do seem way below par from what i've just read.
Have you looked at using a pump, water storage vessel (to add dechlorinator to) and hosepipe to extract tank water and than refill?
Picked up a nano 22L tank in the sales over Xmas - just wondering if I should do a simple tropical or another marine nano with corals and inverts?? mmmmmm
AquaOne Nano 30 22l perchance?
Are you sure that's the one, I seen bad reviews for a shop with the same name that also sells lizards.
As far as I'm aware, they have zero bioload. So, you should be fine.
I should have been more specific. Ideally, I'm looking for something that will fit on quite a large desk. I guess no smaller than a 5 gallon, and no bigger than a 10. It may well end up just being a planted shrimp tank.
The missus been on about getting a "nemo" for ages so bought one and it disappeared over night. thought it might have died and then been eaten by the cleanup crew. bought another one and when I came home from my nightshift found this.
turns out my anemone has a taste for clown fish! tried to save the little guy as he was still kicking but the nem just folded right over him
Could the clownfish have been ill and the anemone just finished it off?
No way. it was swimming around the tank when it wasnt rubbing on its zoas and ate before i left for work at 9pm and at 3am that was what i found.
Id put money on the nem eating the first one aswell
Sorry for the clown loss, but buy them in pairs is a good idea.
