    I am waiting for some copies of Amazonas to get over with an article that I wrote on Senegal bichirs, part of a feature with Josh Pickett, author of the Bichir Handbook.

    I just could not resist sharing this video. Virtually every day now my clown loaches surprise me with their antics. They dont call the clowns for nothing. This unlikely pair decided to shackup for the night and I caught them together the next morning.

    Easy fix that. Go to the irrigation section at builders with your two hoses. Find the reducing hose bib that takes both hoses and then hose clamps. Done :thumbup:

    Sorry for your loss though

    Thank you. Let me investigate that. We tried regular hose connectors to be used with the Flow taps from the canister but couldn’t find them so this was our next option.

    ray tank got a 85% water change
    had to make plan to connect hosepipe to shower so i could use warm water, tank still dropped to 22, got all door closed gas heater pumping and still took 4 hours to get back up to 28, was rather stressful eve

    I am glad it was only around quarter tank for me. But Yoh for 85%. Yeah, my tank doesn't have a proper closed top (The back bit is broken and needs replacing) So when I do the water changes I also really struggle to get the water up to temperature. Yesterday evening I also heated some water in the end because the tank was down to 24 and the fishes really struggle with that. I have Angels and Blue Rams in there.

    Thanks. Yes I am sure I will work perfectly. I have some of those connectors on some of the other pipes according to my Husband. He said that is what he had gotten to connect the other bits that didn't have the right parts.

    You guys. I look at your cold water problem and just shake my head, atleast there's a hot water tap to help you out.

    For me my cold water comes in at about 40⁰C and around now it approaches the mid 40's. I have to go back to Changing water at 4 to 6am so I don't kill my fish and plants :(

    Lol we have 2 big tanks in the office. Virtually everytime my partner does the water changes the same thing happens. And every time he does it I remind him why his wife wont allow him to have any tanks at home!!
