Cool Hi from Manchester

Hi Everyone hope all is well with you, all i have come on here as im hopefully will be going to either a fluval roma 200 or 240 from a jewel lido 120 that is a lightly planted with gravel i want to go to a sand substrate and more plants

current stock:

congo tetra x 4
koi angel x 3
knife fish x 1
penguin tetra x 3
prestella tetra x 4
rosie tetra x 3
lemon tetra x 4
scissortails x 4
sucking loach x 2
bristle nose plec x 2
rainbow x 1
gold gourami x1
chiclid ram x 1

i know this is a lot but i have them over year now and everything is fine just need a bigger tank, I took out the juwel internal filter and changed it for a tetratex ex700 external ( which i want to transfer to the new tank to run in conjunction with the new filter that comes with the tank

as mentioned i would like advice on the following:

1. Whats the best type of plant substrate ( 1.e sand , soil , eco etc.. or a mixture of both.).
2. Any reviews on the fluval roma 200 and 240 ( new Cabinet) .
3. How do i connect the filter to the tank ( as i have heard i have to cut the recces out if that is the case has anyone done this and any advice.
4. Any alternatives to the above tanks .
5 Best plants to go in these tanks with T8 lights that are easy to maintain.


many thanks to everyone in advance for your time in replying to mu queries

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

On your questions, I think you will get more action if you post one or more threads in the pertinent forum section where the members "hang out" more.
