thanks guys, im so worried now, like worrying all the time lol. I had a Juwel jumbo filter before I got this tank and my fish could go without cleaning for about 8 weeks and still not even look that dirty 0_0 its not that I dont want to clean often but I dont think it would be good for my fish if I was water changing lot. Im just kinda on tender hooks for a bit waiting to see how good this Fluval U3 copes with the set up and fish.
I am also worried about the fish trotski and Victor who are big, I cant in anyway get a larger tank, I know its selfish but they have been with me in a tank this size for around 9 years and I so dont want to part with them, If they have been happy for this long is it ok? I guess ill do some thinking see if I can think of anyone who would maybe take them on :(
Thanks for your lovely comments I tried hard to make the tank nice *hugs*

hi
i just want to add my comment.
your tank is so lovley and bright,i love it.
it's not often enough we see bright tanks around anymore,they seem to have
become a "closet" thing,far to many people get bombarded with rubbish about
how the tank looks awful,that people are becoming guarded about showing them.
you are very welcome here,and show me your tank pictures anytime.

Clean water is always welcomed by fish! Frequent or routine water changes, will make them much happier. Water changing is the easiest/cheapest thing you can do. Most people change their water weekly, like myself, I do a 50% water change on all my tanks once a week. If your pH is good from the tap, you have no worries. Myself I have to dechlorinate my water first, then add it. I used to let it sit out overnight in buckets, until I realized my dogs where drinking it. Now I use a chemical dechlorinator and just add the water. Your filter won't pick up the feces from the fish, so using a water vacuum would also benefit your fish. If you don't want to spend the money on one, use a piece of garden hose (clean) and a 20 oz. bottle with the bottom cut off attached to the end of the hose. It will pick up the feces and debris but not the stone.

tested water?

cinnomen, have you tested your water lately? I'm curious to know what the ammonia levels are.
