It kinda grosses me out... if you use the same airline each time, you're still getting shrimp poo in your mouth!

I was hoping for some magical, non mouthed way to get a siphon working lol

Ew!! You don't have to put your mouth on the hose, you put your hand around the hose creating an airtight grip & put your lips on your hand, if you do it right you don't even get water in your mouth :victorious:

Also, if you fit the auto waterchange system you won't have to ever do it again :victorious:

But its tooooo complicated!!!

Was looking at potential water change systems for my soon to be discus tank, but i don't think it'd work on a display tank, without ending up looking ugly

      I have 10 chilli rasbora and a killi in a 30(ish) litre tank and they are doing fine and seems about right in size! I hope to get some shrimp for trial at some stage to also go in there but thats for a later date, when things get back to a bit more normal. Simon

      A 600x300x180 tank is perfect for CPD or chilli rasboras.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon
