    I am upgrading my goldies to a bigger tank (:2thumb:) and I wanted to find out more about cycling with a used filter to speed things up. If I put part of the filter from the old tank into the new one can the fish go straight in or does it still need to cycle? Thanks in advance :)

    So, I've been wanting to get turtles for some time and I've just been given 2 YBS by a colleague, who is moving house and can't take them to the new flat. They're around 8", and came in a 3ft tank (reptile one 3ft x 18" x 18") and as soon as I got the tank set up, I realised they're going to...

    After finding one of our terrapins with it's leg stuck up the inlet pipe to our filter after the end came off I've decided it's time to give the poor souls a new home and make it a good one as the tank they are in is really getting a little small for them. I'm looking to get a tank made that is...

    Just setting up a 2ft tank, but don't have any polystyrene sheets kicking about. Where do you buy the sheets in small amounts cheaply? All I can find is very large pieces. Or is 2ft small enough to not even bother with polystyrene and I could just use cardboard? Cheers
