Well finally got my Biorb 30 litre tropical fish tank up and running, have done lots of research on the net and am so pleased with it. Very easy to set up i.e. the air pump, service pack filter, airstone and tube. As previously mentioned I have a tropical tank which requires a heater so I opted for the Biorb one which seems to be very accurate at keeping temperature regulated.
First I allowed the tank to cycle which only needed a week to make the water acceptable, I know it says 24 hours but wanted to make sure. I bought myself 3 danios which are very hardy fish and peaceful. I left them for a week and then bought 2 platys which are also hardy fish. Next on the list were plants which help the tanks biological system, I went for moss balls this time, and again very pleased, very green in colour and healthy looking. I left it for a week and bought another 3 fish this time harlequins which I didn't actually go in the shop to buy originally, they are lovely looking fish. I have now bought myself 2 balloon mollies which are very unusual looking but love them. Im told I can have roughly 12-15 fish depending on size so the only ones left to buy are the bottom feeders which I will purchase after a week. All the fish bought have been purchased from Pets At Home in Enfield. The moss balls bought online from company using Ebay. Hopefully more to follow.
