I'm with Huma-huma... Give the man a break. Give him the advice and have him do with it what he will. Y'all are the best with advice and guidance. Omar, your tank is definitely overstocked, definitely need the change to the cleaning regimen but overall, WELCOME TO THE FORUM!

I'm in the finance sector and Josh is in Retail.

These are our tanks.

Tank1: 227.50 litres. 101 x 49 x 50
Tank2: 100.00 litres.
Tank3: 70.00 litres.

All have live plants, rocks, driftwood and ornaments.
We've enjoyed it everyday since.

We have over 46 fish and some of our favourites are: Featherfin Squeaker Catfish, Pleco, Angelfish, Blotched upside down catfish and moonlight gourami! But they are pretty much all favourites!

We've joined this community to share information and chat about fish stuff.

Ive attached a video of our big tank and will be posting up all my fish pics. Glad to be a part of this community!

Cheers
Omar

From Australia
Hi Omar, just saw you are in Australia and wondered which part? I didn't twig when I saw the litres as have gotten used to thinking in gallons, lol. I'm over in Perth. Must be nice to have three tanks, I'm still working on getting a second one

I'm not bashing him, I'm trying to steer him in the right direction.

Mrsprinkles isnt bashing him, he is simply telling the OP advice and trying to show OP that he needs to be doing more on his tanks and stop slacking off.
