The Best Deal on Facebook

Lothian Fishkeepers has become a very busy group. Everyday, more people join and our community is growing all the time. I see people buying and selling their fish/fry. Ive seen plants being sold and also aquariums come and go. 

With our group getting so busy, sometimes people miss out on great deals. For a few months now on of our members has been trying to sell his full set up. He has moved into a new house which doesn't allow for an aquarium which means he is sadly needing to sell his entire hobby. 

Darren Kusz has made several attempts to sell his setup but due to various reasons (out of his control) he he has reposted this sale again with the hope he can sell to the right person and all his hard work building his hobby can be passed on and continued with by a fellow hobbyist.

I personally think this is one of the best deals to ever appear in our group and I am going to try and help everyone see this for themselves and hopefully find the tank a new home.

First of all, the aquarium is a Juwel Rio 450 including the original beach stand. This is the new 450 litre model which has only been on the market for 2 years. These retail today at £999 new
  • This is a complete set up so it comes with EVERYTHING you need.
  • 2 x 300watt heaters
  • Air Pump And Stone
  • Rocks and Decor as seen above
  • The substrate consists of coral sand and crushed coral and there is 55kg of it in there
  • All the fish are South American Cichlids. including adult Severum & Silver Dollars
  • Various Medications to keep the fish and water healthy
  • API Master test Kit which retail at £20
  • Nets, Gravel Cleaner & Fish Food
  • An Additional lid and light including the original

Also Included in this deal is 100l aquarium with stand. This is being used as a nursery tank which currently houses some Salving Fry! This tank is complete with all the following...

2 x Internal Filters



Air Pump and Stone

This is the perfect set up for someone who is looking to get back into the hobby. Also, if you know someone that is considering starting out, Darrens set up is unbeatable value for money. If you know anyone who is looking for a nice modern set up with established fish and breeding pair, get in touch asap before someone sees sense and snaps all this up. 

Darren is only looking for £300 for this entire deal. Remember, this tank and stand costs £999 new! So that alone makes the best deal on Facebook right now.

Betta 1050 Canister filter review

Hi Guys,

For most of us money dictates which direction our hobby goes. Wether its opting for a lesser adventurous fish or a smaller aquarium, Money always has the final say. If we could visit our local store and take whatever we wanted, our homes would be filled with shiny new aquariums running of the biggest external filters you could imagine.

When I first started fish keeping, everything I was able to get my hands on was preowned. Aquariums should always be passed on when your done with them, I think anyway! I was young when I started and with a lack of free cash, the chance of a new (to me, anyways) filter was always welcomed.

Its great to be able to buy the best but sometimes your fish keeping funds just don't allow that and we have to look for cheaper alternatives.

There is a few brands out there that are working hard to offer products that can compete on functionality and quality while trying to keep the price tags realistic. One of those brands is 'Betta'

They offer …

Barilius Bakeri - The Blue Spotted Hill Trout

The Barilius Bakeri or Blue spotted Hill Trout is a shoaling fish you won't see very often in the local fish stores. Originating from the Western Ghats mountains in southwestern India, these Cyprinidaes offer an appealing alternative to the usual barbs/danios.
You may see these fish being sold under several names like 'blue-dotted mirror fish' or 'royal danio' all sporting the catching bluish-green spots along the length of the body. These spots begin to fade slightly as the fish ages. a paper white flick is also present on the tip of the dorsal and anal fins.

In the aquarium they should be kept in groups of five or more. This will allow the species to develop a pecking order and prevent other smaller fish being targeted. If kept in a smaller group, the smallest fish could become a continuous target for the more dominant fish and if kept individually, they would eventually become aggressive to any similar looking fish in the aquarium. With this in min…

Tri-Spec App controller - Review - *updated*

Hi Guys,

Lighting is a key factor in a successful planted tank. Some plants require a lot and some prefer less. knowing your plants needs is just as important as knowing your fish needs and having the right lights for your aquarium is a must. It is also important to consider the amount of time you have your lights switched on for too. This is called the "photo period" and the general advised length of time is a maximum of 9 hours.

For years, the best way to achieve a regular automatic lighting routine was to employ the services of a socket timer. These nippy little buggers consisted of a dial in which you would pick out the relevant time slots for whatever time you wanted the socket to power on for. Ive personally used these for CO2 setups and they do what they are supposed to do. I personally didn't like the extra space they took up, but maybe that was just the style I had.

It wasn't until LED light units started being introduced to the hobby that we really had a mod…
