Fishy Photo fun.
Beautiful fish Greenlantern101
Anyone else get nagged by their fish? My tank is next to where I usually sit and when I park myself the little buggers all come over and stare through the glass at me expecting food.
Always, even if it's 10 minutes since you last fed them.
How do you know they are expecting food FB? They might all be madly in love with you.
Any ideas on what might be causing brown fronds to grow on my daughters plants ? All help gratefully received.
Titch sounds like algae. A picture would help. Algae loves phosphate which you can check with a test kit. It also loves too much light. You could try cutting the lighting period by an hour or 2. If you are using fake plastic plants, replace them with real aquatic plants as they will out compete the algae.
You could also get something that will eat the algae. Nerite snails are very effective but won't touch some types of algae.
If you buy an algae eating fish just check it's size when fully grown, most algae eaters get very big. And no they don't grow to suit the size of the tank, that is a very old and very wrong myth.

Thanks I'll pass all that on.
They do have real plants though.

If any of you fishy folk want to make easy money, I got contacted by this company for a 20second crab clip on YouTube and it was sold onto The Weather Channel, I made £75.
They are actually searching for fish videos!
More of an aquarium rather than fish tank. Sea Horse whilst diving in the Caribbean
I've set up a fish keeping group on Facebook.
Trying to get new members. Here is the link.
Fish Keeping Scotland
Why are fish keeping Scotland? I thought that it was the Scots whom wanted to keep the UK fisheries.
I shall point my daughter in the direction of the group, although she’s not a Facebook fan.
My cichlids have had babies. I've just noticed tiny ones in the weed and others hiding under the rocks between 5 and 8mm long
Congratulations, you're a father.
Do you have any other lengths of rocks in your tank?
My fish keeping group now has over 1800 members Just placed an order for a 6x2x2 foot tank. Things are going swimmingly.
