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

rosie tetra x 3
lemon tetra x 4
scissortails x 4
sucking loach x 2
bristle nose plec x 2
rainbow 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:-D

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 :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
