I’m back - things have changed!
« on: February 17, 2019, 09:51:06 am »
Hi everyone I’m back and things have changed/evolved!
The Blue Rams wouldn’t stop breeding but only 9 juveniles from their spawns have survived - and I can’t bear to part with them!
I seem to be fairly bad at keeping guppies  :( 2 males left out of the multiples I did have - my water is fairly soft and it just doesn’t suit them
I have consolidated my tanks down to the 20l betta tank and 120 mixed community and will be shutting down the 120l when my 500L is cycled  *applause*
We spent 4 weeks in Australia over Christmas and used an auto feeder. It worked pretty well but sadly when we got home our two gold Rams has totally disappeared. Gone *bye3*
So this is my 500l and will be a Discus/Ram community:

    Welcome back :)
    Sorry for your losses :(
    It does sound like you’ve been busy, and the new tank looks good! I look forward to seeing the progress :)

    No I haven’t bought them yet. I have travelled up to see Steve Punchard  and his fish are UK tap water bred and stunning so I am thinking I will buy from him.
    Where are you getting yours?

    I have visited various shops across West Yorkshire and the best so far are at Ferry Bridge Aquatics, I'm still waiting for my alleged Bod wood  to sink tanning is coming from it so I am petty sure it is Bog wood.  :mad:
    Where is Steve Punchard's  shop?

    Welcome back, you have been busy with the Rams.  *grin*
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
    All the best
