Talking A present

Although wanting a fish tank I was given no choice as my sister decided to give my son two goldfish and a 1ft tank for his birthday.

Since getting this Ive had nothing but trouble, what with water going green, no filtration and trying to settle the tank in.

After chatting with my wife and my local aquarium dealer it was decided to give away our two goldfish and start with some tropical fish. After a couple of days of blacking out the tank the water cleared right up, PH was stabilised and the new fish introduced.

Hello and welcome to the forum

A pat on the back to you for doing the right thing with those goldfish. They are notorious poopers and need a fairly large tank to thrive.

Good luck with your new choices. We're here to help if you need it.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

what filter did you buy then,and what fish ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
