And the winner is..........CO2 ART

Hi Guys,

As you know we are celebrating reaching 2k members and our first competition has come to an end and we can now announce the winners.

CO2 Art are a company that has been kind to our group over the last year. They have provided us with several DIY CO2 kits which we have gave away as prizes. We have also seen multiple fertiliser products and other aquascaping related items.

Lothian Fishkeepers are becoming increasingly interested in the layout of the decor within their aquariums these days and with more and more of us looking to achieve perfection, we are turning to companies like CO2 Art for the tools to do so.

With the prize being eVouchers for the online store, it made sense for the competition to be aquascaped.

We had some great entries and the guys at CO2 Art struggles to pick a winner, so much so that they decided to have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place instead.

So without any further delay the winners are:

In 3rd place
Barry Gibb £10.00 eVoucher
In 2nd place
John Cudworth £10.00 eVoucher
and the winner is
Michael Braumrucker £30.00 eVoucher

Congratulations to all three winners and thank you to everybody that took the time to enter our competition. To claim your prize, please send me a PM via Facebook including your name and email address.

Thanks again guys. 

Look out for our next 2k member competition coming soon and don't forget our christmas competition which is pinned to the top of our group.

bye for 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…

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…
