    Angelfish with oto's??

    I've kept angels in my tank, which is about 10X turnover. At the moment I have discus in this tank, and they're thriving. They don't seem to mind the flow at all.

    AUTO-CLEANING GOLDFISH TANK? Experiment in progress...

    Hi I love your goldfish tank. It's so nice to see someone doing it 'properly'. I keep cranium callimistratum in my discus tank... It is a heavy substrate feeder though so you might run into problems. Mine are over three foot tall now and they've started splitting into new plants at the...

    "Lake Breeze" by ADist (IAPLC 2011 - #16)

    my birthday present!

    Thanks guys, Tom I'm on to it! I've dug out a spare koralia and set it up in the tank, hopefully that'll be enough, if it's not I have another koralia that just needs one replacement part, so I'll look into getting the part. George, thanks for your advice, I will certainly take it on board...
