Ive been lingering here for a while, but after moving house Ive finally registered!
I currently have a 60cm main tank housing 8 Black Neon Tetras and a 'Thai Stone Sucker' (So my LFS
called it... basically a slightly slick looking Flying Fox). Lovely tank and running nicely.
I also have a 30cm empty quarantine alongside.
Now I have the extra space, Ive recently got hold of a 4ft tank (48x15x18) that Im designing a stand for. Having realised the massive weight of these buggers, Ive well over-engineered it. Hmm... watch this space for the results!
Also, I think its time to give up the UGF
and go for a nice external filter. Ive read in a few places that Eheim are really good. Are they worth splashing out the extra cash on? Or would a Fluval or similar do the job? Please give me your recommendations. The tank will basically be holding the current stock plus a few extra live plants and some extra tetras and a pleco to start with.
Oh, and if theres any other advice people want to mention, fire away! I like to get as much advice as I can!
