What do you mean by a filter change? whilst manufacturers recommend we change filter media it is best to leave biological media well alone in till the media itself starts to degrade (many many years).

Do the new rasbora look pale as well?

I have increased the number of Rasboras to 8, checked the pH and regulated it to 7.0, added 2 more guppies, 2 Panda Platies and some Neon Tetras. 4 out of 6 of the Neons died in less than 24 hours, 2 before getting them home.

We have decided that our Pleco, Drac, will have to be adopted out of our tank. By his size alone, he has become like a bull in a china shop and he is trying to get under a structure that is too small for him. He pushes so hard that he displaces the sand and uproots the plants.

I am still trying to get Water Sprite plants locally, but may have to buy them online.

The scheduled water change is getting done today. I'll likely do a filter change in two days as well, after the water clears from the water change.

While I'm reporting all of these improvements and changes, no changes have occurred to my Rasboras. they still look paler than when I bought them.

Goodness - it must have been snapped up quickly as the advert was only dated yesterday. It was in Oldham, Greater Manchester - and free of charge!

No, @TopCookie - I'd be really lucky if I could squeeze in a 1-ft tank in addition to my own tank; definitely no way of squeezing a 7-ft tank in.

By any chance Dave, do you follow the young Paul Cuffaro on YouTube...?  He's a tremendously confident young pup who is heavily into both aquariums and outdoor ponds - especially ponds - and is great fun to watch...
