    Selco S. Presso is a paste of processed fish oils (probably salmon oil), emulsified with warm water. It is rich in HUFA (Highly Unsatturated Fatty Acid). Brachionus have very little nutritional value and are with the S. presso upgraded so that the larvae in order to get sufficient nutrients.

     

    Hello Jutta,

     

    May I ask why you choose to enrich with Selco instead of live phytoplankton?

    I’m not familiar with everything that is available in the US.  Tropical Fish Hobbyist is worth having a look at, it covers both fresh and salt water areas of the hobby at an intermediate level.  As it’s a US publication is should be fairly easy to source to get a sample, and if you’re subscribing, they do a digital version which is cheaper.  You might be able to get your hands on an imported copy of Practical Fishkeeping magazine, which is a magazine published here in the UK.  However, it will likely be much more expensive than TFH, and it has recently been edited to appeal to beginners in the hobby – so might not be what you’re looking for.

    Possibly the best magazine in the world for freshwater hobbyists is Amazonas, which has recently been translated into English.  My advice would be to find a copy of any that are available to you, and have read to see which appeals to you the most.

    Where are you located?  What level of fishkeeper do you consider yourself to be?

    Good job on the re-launch, looking good! 

     

    My issue was to do with the email that was sent with the temporary password…..it didn’t contain one.  The email ended up in my spam folder (as I would expect due to the changes), however, the body of the message was blank.  Don’t know if that was just me, or for everyone?

     

    Not that it impacted on my registering a new password, just wanted to make you aware – in case it is an issue 🙂

    Not a clue on what they are – I do know I like them lots though!

    TA Aquaculture’s spirulina product is cheaper. I’ve not used it for Daphnia but do use it for marine copepods.

    What’s the volume of the pools? You might do better growing live algae in the ponds first, that would be the best choice, in my opinion.

    The only filtration I can imagine being quieter than a canister is an internal filter, although I would always recommend the canister filter first. The transition should be relatively easy, take all the filter media that exists in the trickle filter and place it into the canister filter, it shouldn’t be a problem provided you purchase a large enough canister filter /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    As Keith has said, not a lot that can be said with such news.

    At least you now have a more positive outcome.

    in reply to: Water Change On 275l Tank… #346121

    The only UK equivalent of the Python that I’m aware of is the JBL Aqua In/Out, it’s circa £50. DIY instructions are available on the internet though.

    My own method when I had the freshwater tank (I changed 100 litres every 3-4 days) was pretty simple. I used a 100l water butt with a water butt pump, filled the water butt with a mixture of hold and cold water straight from the tap, then dechlorinate (opinions vary, personally I’d rather be safe than sorry and with Seachem Prime being so cost-effective I see no reason not to) and then pump the water directly in using a length of garden hose. To take the water out of the tank I would simply syphon it direct to the garden. I could do a complete 100l water change from start to finish in under 20mins, taking my time

    I would expect at least 2 years and up to 5 years. I had mine for over 2 years before the male passed on, and I passed the female over to another hobbyist who had a group as I was treating the tank with some wormer that wasn’t invertebrate safe.

    What we don’t know is how old they are when we get them, which makes it difficult to know pin an expected lifespan on them.

    They do appreciate some serious flow and mature aquariums though, mine would spend most of their days perched only 2 inches from the outflow of a 2300lph pump

    What a great way to make a point, that’s the picture manufacturers should use on their packaging /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />
