    Tropical Aquariums... Lets see em.

    Bought a new aquarium today, and got a slight bargain in the mix. It's away until Kirsty and i get married and get a quarter but I will get pics of it when it's live. The fish from our 60l aquarium will go into it, then add to it - it's going to be a community tank and hopefully we'll use the 60l one as a breeding tank.

    Anyways, here's what we got:

    Fluval Roma 200 Aquarium & Cabinet (200l)



    Fluval 205 External Filter



    200 watt Fluval Tronic Heater


    Nutrafin Care Pack (LCD thermometer,100ml Nutrafin Aqua Plus & Cycle. 26g Nutrafin Tropical Flake food).

    2 x 36" 30 watt GLO fluorescent lighting tubes

    All for a bargain £269.99!!! RRP on it all is: £391.58 so we've saved a total of £121.59!!

    What aquariums do you all have?? In my bedroom I have a Tetra 60l with Harlequins, Swordtails, Loaches, Red Finned Shark, Tetra's, Neons & Guppies.

    Looks nice mate. Has everything still been running while there's been no fish in it??? I see it's plugged in. I think it may be mature enough for them

    Kinda pointless having it running if there's nothing in it lol

    Fishless cycle...one reason to run a tank with no fish...unless you can seed the filter...

    Just got the CO2 going in again and replaced a broken glass outflow pipe too (plastic temp one in picture)...mine is a small 60cm/15 US gallon running Estimative Index fertilisation and 2 watts per gallon..I waffle...it has only been re-planted a few weeks so things are just bedding in and some of the plants are still showing emergent growth so look out of place. Front carpet isn't staying long term.

    Fish wise, 7 rasbora maculatus and now 13 pygmy corydoras, and silly numbers of shrimp.



    Cabinet, now has 2KG fire extinguisher in for CO2:
