    Boiling plants

    :thumbdown: They are so annoying. Snail killing chemicals are bad for plants and sometimes fish arent they? If not i will just have to move my piranhas out of that tank and put my cichlid in their for a while, because they eat the snails if i drop them into their tank.

    C02 run out already?

    Just set up my 5kg FE, glad it fit my regulator :D ! Any ideas how long this "should" last? Based on my 500g running out in 10 days i calculated that it should last for 100 days, is that correct? Thanks

    First planted tank

    1 is 12" and the others are 6". All sorts, cichlid floating pellets, whole cod fillets, prawns, any sort of white fish. I have only ever fed them live once which was when i first got them, i dont do that anymore because it can give them diseases + not nice for the fish being eaten :lol:
