okay so with crimbo money i got a fish tank, and thou some people may enjoy, im getting well into it and want a bigger tank now.

its only 30l but a deep tank, here when i first set it up



i then got 3 danios to start the tank off


nd once they were settled i got 2 white mollies, and a blue siamese fighter fish.





i then got a pleco and 2 crabs, ufortiatly after 2 days the crabs died. took them back and they gave me £10 credit to the shop but they said do a 25% water change first



and then due to what they owed i got a shrimp. matt (fr499y) told me its a bomboo shrimp. expensive bugger but seems pretty cool

not siure wont be any time soon. as my hours have been dropped at hotel to 9 whats crazy, so relying on this bodyshop job to sort itself.

i want anouther shrimp but at £9 i thought id see how he gets on first but i have enough fish for now. i want some neons, oe penguin tetras. but it would be over croweded so maybe is danios eventually die or something they will replace them, as their also small. thumbs

Chad, dont buy anything else.. its overstocked as it is. A single pleco needs a lot more than 30L even at 3", plus plenty of driftwood/bogwood ( they need wood to help digest food ) Betta needs a 30L tank on its own. betta, shrimp is fine but the pleco and mollies etc are seriously overstocking it. The ammount you have in there will need a 10-15% water change every other day to keep on top of the water quality, not to mention the filter maintenance. Looks good besides all that Laughingthumbs

shows how the pet shops lie, the mollies may go to dad in his tank, the pleco, hes a poo machine. the betta, seems okay, danios just swim around, i do want a bigger tank but funds dont allow at the min.

every sunday i have been doing a 1/4 to 1/3 water change.

dont use water straight from the tap chad let it stand for a few days in a bucket to let any chlorine evaporate

need to use tapsafe or some sort of water dechlorinator. Letting it sit doesn't get rid of chlorine ( They add more these days than they used to!! )

currently stocking a few new fish, and lost a couple over time etc.

rthe bamboo shrimp died but got one on the weekend, and he is a beast 4.5-5"

i also bought 2 gouriami and one died within 3 days which is a bummer :/

heres some pics





my new bolvian rams, do love these, hes not the most colourful but facinating to watch


this imo was a lovely looking gouriami, but it died in 3 days, and the golden one has fin, rott, definnatly never buying fish from dobbies garen centres again!!




and heres my little frog, many people said he wouldnt survive a week being slow eaters, especially seeing as he was blind, now he has some sight but is deffo blind on the left and partially on the right. ive had him 4 months now and he is still going strong!
