Ok cool. Thanks for converting Mecal :). Angel079, I think I would build a tank 2ft by 2ft, but the depth would be a maxmum of around 20 inches.

Unhappy

Howzit okes.

I've had my tank running for a few weeks now and I'm struggling a bit, my mind is baffled.

I've noticed that my angels have been breathing very fast and my one bronze cory is gulping air at the surface.

I have a 60 litre tank with:

a canister doing 200 litres per hour
an airstone blowing air into the tank

Livestock:

2 x angels (still very small)
5 x corys
5 x flame tetras
5 x glolite tetras
1 x miniature pleco (very small)

Plants:

1 x java fern
4 pieces of another aquatic plant

Substrate:

pool filter sand

Light:

1 x 15watt aquaglo

Temp:

26

Please i'm worried about the fish. Had them 3 weeks now, haven't lost one yet and they are eating like pigs. What could be the problem?

What are your readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? The gasping sounds like it could be the result of high ammonia or nitrite levels in the water.
