Hi everyone

Hi everyone

Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum to you all. Am lainie from Scotland and a new fish keeper.

I have a 60l tank and currently have 5 danios and just today introduced 3 male guppies to the tank. All fish seem to be getting on the now although guppies look shy just now lol. I had 4 penguin tetras bought from a different retailer to whom we deal with now and they died within two weeks of White spot. We had been advised by the shop to feed them tetrafin crisps as opposed to flakes and feed 2-3 times daily and only clean tank and do a water change every month!!! Needless to say the ammonia levels became very toxic causing White spot and eventual death.
Danios and guppies doing great though love the hardiness and activeness of the danios.

At least you know better now. Great to have you here. There are a lot of folks here that can really help you if you need it. Cheers!

Cats: Small quadrupedal mammals that share our passion for fishkeeping, although for somewhat less then altruistic reasons.
