That's the std verification for allowing Â£650 or something like that to be withdrawn from your paypal into your bank account.
you'll then have to upgade once that limit is reached to allow more funds to be withdrawn into your bank.
change your password every month.
It's gone, along with your money. The only hope is that you paid by paypal? and if so hope that they still have their paypal active. Otherwise they've completley had you :?
Sadly, it's full of scams and many people using loads of stolen accounts to do things like that.
Yeah I have to admit it was abit annoying looking through the tropica book and seeing their plants price group/pot number. Great. But means nothing as each retailer sells them to whichever price point they feel like :(
Personal choice. :wink: :D
The same as I refuse to clean any filter media with tap water. I'm sure it's been proved that it has no harm but I'm set in my ways with methods that have always worked for my setups.
I have nothing as against blackouts Dave, I just wouldn't use that method by...
In the example Jaycat set would the heat source not be the room temp?
in this case 30c, so if the tank is naturally a couple of degrees below room temp then that's not too bad, but he was saying would wrapping the tank up not increase the temp of the tank?,
so I suppose with the heat not...
About half an hour to 45 mintues, I use the w/c time to inspect the tank, sort out problems, replant uprooted plants, syphon gravel ect, so I don't mind that it takes so long because I get to make sure the tank is in perfect order and, well...hey, it's fun! :D
The wifes kettle gets a hammering...
I feel left out here.....
I change 25% of my 230l once a week
I remove the 25% with a jug, replace with buckets that have each been dosed with a dechlor solution and topped off with boiling water from the kettle to take off the 'chill' of tap water.
I have a 40l and 20l that I change about...
Glad to hear they're settled in mate :D
The diana Walstead method is new to me, but as you know the stage my largest tank is at anything is a possibility for converting it to, I've had a look at the link and I'm amazed at how straight forward and cost effective the method is , it is tempting I...
[FOR SALE] TOP QUALITY NERITE SNAILS :lol:
only joking :D
so it looks like it's the nerite egg theory then Dan? although whatever it is, I've checked on some that aren't dug in yet and it's not spreading
I'll see what he says :D
No, they're just solid :(
the snails are acting normal, digging in the day, invading the glass on mass at night, so it doesn't seem to be anything other than some sort of bacteria on the shell?
Is there a non copper med for snails?
wow, you've got a keen eye :wink:
they sure are ulster, but the reason for that is that every time I try to get a close up of anything be it fish, snail or....anything, if it's behind glass the camera just will not focus :( so I snapped that snail over the top, but sadly many more look the...
When I'm chosing an ebay seller to give my hard earned (in short supply) money to, I always check the negative and neutral feedback comments and more importantly the replies to the comments from the seller.
I think it's fair to say that if anyone checked the neg and neutral for zoostock, they...
That would explain why after 2 weeks there are no eggs on the Java fern I put in the tank for them
That was going to be a future question, thanks ulster :D
So it's looking like it's a bacteria on their shells?
Hope they are, I only said ulcer because that was the only comparison I could think of.
There's roughly 200 ish in their own tank (long story, DAN!! :twisted: ) :lol:
I've never had them before so I really don't know, do baby snails leave the egg jelly and cling to a snail?
I don't know a lot about them so this could turn out to be a stupid question, but it has got me thinking what it could be............. :?
What are the ulcer like things on their shells, only a few have them, some have 1, others up to 4...they're spread over the shells in various locations.
I haven't run an airstone yet because it's a plant only tank so I wasn't too worried about clearing excess CO2, but if it means that it'll clear the film off the surface then there's no harm in an hour once the lights have gone out. :D
I'll try it tonight, I just didn't know if I'd have to do...
Thanks for posting the pics, your tank looks great and those discus are stunning! :D
I was looking at what our MA had yesterday (just for entertainment, I could never keep them :( ) and I don't know much about them but I'm guessing you've either got a far higher quality of discus or...
Control that green eyed monster John :wink:
All you had to do was ask and I would have sent you some :D
It was my wifes choice because it was pretty :( It was the only way I was aloud to get the tank, but it's all changed now :D
and I've got a son called Eheim :wink:
no only joking...that would be going a bit too far....I only just got away with Hagen for the cat, the other option was 'fluffy'..wasn't much competition really :lol:
I like your varient b of the 'Terraced'
The extra wood will stop it being lost, if you know what I mean? Whilst trying to picture each option planted I just feel that the originol 'Terraced' would end up with the wood being hidden
Re: Shrimp Only Tank - Juwel Rekord 60
Well done on the crs that's great news,
People like you who breed them with the intention of supplying to increase the availability without making a huge proifit deserve a big shout out,
most people breed to make a huge profit
but I respect...
Just to add, this is only my personal opinion and probably means nothing, but greenline charged the most for P+P which wasn't a problem because they gave an excellent service for packing and care with keeping plants fresh
I'd go for it Dacious,
I was a bit confused though as they'd been preping customers for weeks about a part shut down of the nursery for heating work and then suddenly it's all over, It's still worth grabbing what you can whilst you can.
Just had a look at the link and unless I've done something wrong It looks like the only way to view is to be a member
could you post a couple of pics on this thread? judging by your description of your tank and the BIDKA members reactions they sound really good :D
I've recently bought a lunminaire for roughly the same size tank from ebay, didn't cost much and delivered in 2 days!, adjusted to fit perfectly, It was 2nd hand though and not new from an ebay shop but even so it's in great condition...the seller had it up for bidding but a quick offer later...
awww why does george have to live in Lincolnshire, how am I suppose to compete with him :( :D
How many pictures are you planning to have on the stand Dan?, are you just using one persons tank from each county or just as many as you get sent?
I'll watch out for the rock problem, I hadn't thought about them digging under before but it makes sense, I'll change the layout I had in mind just to make sure.
What size tank and water conditions did you have yours in?
It's already been in the aqua cube, I'd only got about 5-6ltrs in it thankfully, but it messed all the sand up that until that point I'd managed to carefuly keep without exploding up into the water :|
I now use the glass cover :D
Has anyone kept crayfish before?
I'm only wanting one on its own because I'm not intending to breed them, but I'm just wondering if anyone has experience of keeping them and could share a few tips.
I've read the books ect but can someone give an opinion based on their experience for the best...
I'd have the pond, only so I could use it for a bit of fishing, it would be small enough to always catch something and wouldn't cost me the Â£12 plus day ticket for the pleasure! :D (and I'd know that there was something worthwhile in it to catch! :wink: )
I thought it was cute until it started scratching the glass, it seems to want to eat the angel fish :(
Although I suspect given half the chance the angels would eat the cat if they could, they eat everything else! :lol:
:lol: no no no :lol:
I agree with clive on the point that a filter media can't be destroyed by washing with tap water.
my point was just that tap water does kill bacteria even if it's only a small amount and 'none' is better than 'some' :D
Sorry clive, I was just refering to the fact that washing with tap water does kill bacteria on filter media, which from the above I asume it does? but just not in enough quantities to cause major damage, which I agree with. I understand that larger equipment may need to be cleaned with tap water...
Don't agree clive,
why in that case do we use chlorine removers in our water changes if tap water does not harm bacteria?
I've made the mistake of rinsing with tap water many years ago, and it did make a difference, I never did it again.
We know that the answer is noooooooooooo tap water, but I must admit I was suprised to sit down and watch a proffesional Hagen presentation telling me to kill my vital bacteria every time I maintain my filters, does anyone know WHY? Hagen have instructed thousands of people to do this? :?
damnit!!! :evil: there was about 10 mins left on it and I didn't want to miss out so I bought it before you posted :( (removed the link now because it comes up with paypal stuff)
The curse of ebay, no wonder they're so rich :|
I'm not being sarcastic here, this is a serious question based on what's been said because I haven't got to grips with understanding the scale properly but would I be able to get away with using a desktop lamp over a small 30cm tank as all the 'clamp on' lamps I've found have a 9 or 11w bulb...
This must be my forum tonight! :wink:
Bristlenose will eat anything with large leaves (amazon sword) they try to clear any signs of algae that they can find but they strip the leaves of surface 'skin', you'll find patterns on the leaves untill they finally make a hole in them.
Not just amazon...
I don't know the L46, but if it's anything of the size of the common then it'll need a padded cell! (just a figure of speech, fish welfare is of the upmost importance :D )
They have a habit of laying on plants, then snapping the stems with their tails then leaving waste products all over the...
I've just finished setting up my 2x 2ltr drinks bottle set up connected to a 3rd smaller bottle for protection from liquids coming in contact with each other. My tank is 230l, I'll never get a completely stable co2 level with a yeast system but I've got low light levels so I've got a bit of room...
