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: Oooo just spotted this hope you feel better soon lotsofcats x

caz2golden: I will admit I do not use bank that often other than to sort problems and bank cash / cheques. I do however use bank (different one) for work so am highly aware how this will affect businesses which need ease of access and are usually banking cash..

caz2golden: I should not have bothered walking dogs today, only lead walk up lane but they came back as flat coats with all the mud, their jumpers are now in the washing machine!

lotsofcats: Several of our local banks have closed and others only open on certain days. I feel sorry for old people and traders who rely on taking their cash to the bank in the local town.

caz2golden: It just feels wrong, local town is already struggling, removal of bank is only likely to increase this issue!

scallywag: I flaming well don't want snow not with Poor Beau the way he is

caz2golden: Agree Scallywag, you definitely do not want snow with Beau recovering. Still wish we were having some, would love to get a dogs in snow picture, instead looks like here it will be rain. Think Lotsofcats might get quite a bit tomorrow.

caz2golden: I am getting sick of unpredictable and wet weather. Looks lovely outside at the moment but worried the heavens will open again at any given moment from what the 4cast implies. Been like this for days (feel like weeks)
