Well I had wrote a long & detailed thread but something happened & it messed up on my mobile so I'm starting again.
Long story cut short was waiting for once we were settled in new house to get tank up & running again which I think the time will be soon. I have a 48litre tank, W39cm x D33cm x H43cm. Prob I'm finding is I can't make up my mind what I want to keep in the tank. I've considered and researched African Dwarf Frogs...Terrapins musk/stink pots...I've also thought about gold fish, shrimp or tetras. I just cant decide. I was hoping this is where you could all come in with suggestions and advice...also input on the ones Ive considered.
Tanks not big enough for goldfish I'm afraid, you need at least 3ft for a fancy goldfish, fantails you're looking at 4ft+.
Tropicals like tetras would be good. Have you thought about a Siamese Fighter? They are gorgeous, and that's a fine sized tank for one. I had that size for mine, and I had a snail living with him. You could have some guppies with a SF and snails in that size of tank quite happily.
SarahHound I had actually originally bought this tank with the intention of keeping a SF in it but for one reason or another it didn't happen. It may be an ideq to go back to that idea again its just finding the right place to get them from.
Do you have a Dobbies near you? Anytime I've been in there their fish are always very healthy looking. Pets at Home sells them but their fish care and knowledge varies greatly from store to store. There's always dead ones in mynearest one :/
Yeh there is one about a half hour drive from here. I do agree that their knowledge depends on which store you go to. I went to one once and asked something about treatment for the water and I swear I felt like I had maybe walked into a Pound shop or something & asked the question lol.
scallywag: Will it be in the local paper or was it miles from home ?

caz2golden: Sorry not on much my PC is sending me around the bend every time I use mouse it double clicks when I only single clicked! Part of me is hoping it is a windows issue that will get updated rather than just PC getting old and broken!

alfiemummy: It's most likely your mouse that needs replacing Caz - that's happened to me twice now and both times it's been fixed by getting a new mouse

tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!
