    High Nitrates in tap water (pic), time for RO?

    As title says, recently my tap water has been reading way above what I'd like to see.. 40-80 ppm... How serious is this? Normally I'm sitting around 10ppm in the tank. Any help appreciated

    EMERGENCY APISTO EATEN CORY

    Good news, I moved him to his own tank to monitor him and as of last night he's either spat it out or eaten it. I'm now keeping an eye on him and keeping him alone until I decide what I'm doing. Thanks for your replies.

    Help me improve my scape?

    Hi thank you for your input, I do mean to improve the scape for the fish more so than for me I guess I just worded it badly. The plants I have in the centre are crypts so they will grow out eventually I'm just impatient I also filled the front with leaf litter now too

    Help me improve my scape?

    Hi there! I have a 120 ltr/34 US gallon tank for my male apisto cacatuoides! In there with him is some ember tetra, pygmy corys, otos and a red whiptail cat. I'm looking to add 1/2 females for him or alternatively a different species of apisto (male) or a Bolivian ram if not. However I'm...

    7 day holiday, what to do?

    Hi everyone! I'm going away for a week soon with my family and I'm concerned about leaving my fish, I have a fairly young tank with some very small ember tetras and pygmy corys and 2 apistos (less than 1.5" long). I've never left my aquarium for more than a day before so I'm essentially...

    Apisto. Caca. glass surfing and not eating?

    Hi, I have fed frozen bloodworms and they are seeming to enjoy it and I also have frozen daphnia to try out as well. Since my last post I have decided I have definitely got two males as the smaller one is now developing a lyretail and extended dorsal spines. Luckily my LFS have said I can swap...

    Apisto. Caca. glass surfing and not eating?

    Hi, thanks for the info! And merry christmas! I will probably add some more plants/leaf litter and a couple more bits of driftwood if I can find some good pieces so that should help with blocking sight lines. As for food, have you any recommendations on frozen foods as I've always thought of...
