Just saying Hi to everyone.:)

Started fish keeping last August when I bought a Fluval Roma 125.
Got lots of advice from this site, which helped me set it up successfully.
Currently stocked with 4 Danio's, 10 Neon's, 6 Harlequin's and 5 Corys - 3 Schwartzi and 2 Paleatus.

Started a fishless cycle on the Aquaone 620 I got before Christmas last week, although I've not decided what's going in it yet.:confused:
Once that's set up I will be setting up two more tanks.
MTS already.:D

Decided to join because everyone seems really friendly and I will be needing advice in the future.

Ian.

Which LFS do you use? I'm always on the lookout for other good ones around Derbyshire.

Cheers

So how come you're South Derbyshire? It only goes up to Melbourne, doesn't it?
And as Johnny says, what's your local?

It goes up to the outskirts of Derby. HERE (http://general.south-derbys.gov.uk/councillors/pcsearch.asp)

As for LFS, Maidenhead Aquatic (http://www.fishkeeper.co.uk/store_details.php?storeid=13) at Wyevale, Findern.
Got my tank from them. Not the biggest range of dry goods though.
Dry goods I tend to go to The Aquatic and Pet Warehouse, Swad.

Good grief, I never realised it went up to Hatton and Hilton etc.....
The one in Swad is OK, I got my zygatus corys from there (labelled as rabauti, but there ya go....), and my sterbai, and some hatchets, and a q-tank, and a lid, and food and........ ;)
Maidenhead isn't great, especially for advice from a couple of the wozzoks (a few - mainly the girls - are OK) and VFM and labelling, but I did get some cherry shrimps (all dead now :( ).
