Jon here, I currently have a 35 litre cold water aquarium with 6 zebra danios 1 leopard danio and 2 loaches. Currently using fluval U2 filter in my tank along with a small eheim aqua ball which I'm using phosvec as the media to help remove phosphates which are already found in my municipal water supply.
I have also just come home from my LFS
and I'm feeling a lot lighter in the pocket now as I've just purchased my NEW aquarium.
Fluval Roma 200 with oak cabinet. I have upgraded the fluval u4 filter to a fluval 206 external filter, added an AquaGro Co2
expert set, some sera floredepot substrate, sera florena plant fert, marina digital thermometer and an API master testing kit.
My new aquarium will be delivered this week and then I can begin my designing phase.
The 35 litre tank has been in my house for the last 3 yrs but the wife was looking after it until she started to get fish dying. I then took over and quickly found the issues she was having were due to her poor water maintainence. This was approximately 6months ago.
Now I'm hooked and I'm upgrading from 35 litres up to 200litres.
It's only going to be a tropical tank nothing too daring with my existing danios and loaches along with some barbs, tetras and some invertebrates eg amano shrimps, and maybe a couple of other fish.
Anyway I've rambled for far too long. Thanks for reading and I can't wait to get my new tank cycled and in use.
