Disaster LEAK!!!! need advice plz!!
ok so the other day my 150 L sprung a leak and i have had to move all the fish from my highly stocked 150 L into a mere 105L
is there anything i can do to help de-stress
all i have done so far is add a fair bit of sea salt
but as per normal out of every storm comes a silver lining as i found this
i am going to go for this one L" X48 H21" X W15"
which measures upto 2 65 US gallons or 248 L and it's only £20 delivery
nice find on ebay, I would do water changes and keep checking for ammonia/nitrites, while they are in a smaller tank these will build up quicker. good luck
Got an extra bath tub? Got an extra Brute trash can? Got a 45g Tote handy? You can use all these things, throw in your filter and heater and your good to go unitl your tank is repaired or replaced.
an i will test and even better
just keep my eye on my clown loach they are the best water indicator going lol
Without knowing the exact fish and numbers, it is difficult to predict issues that may arise; but generally speaking all the fish will likely manage fine for the short term.
You did mention adding "a fair bit of sea salt" but this may do more harm than good with soft water fish such as clown loaches. Salt will burn them quite easily.
More frequent water changes using a good conditioner, minimal feeding, and avoiding stress are advisable.
but WILL be ordering it tomorrow :)
finally decided on a L48 X H21 X W15
