4m long, 1.7m tall planted aquarium – got your attention yet?!

I was hoping this title might catch you eye. The fact you are reading this post, shows it did. Result!

Ultimately this hobby is about inspiring people and being an online shop, it’s hard to get that message across. But there’s nothing quite like a YouTube clip to get your juices going. Takashi Amano is an absolute master in all things planted aquarium, and he was in fact one of the reasons I got into this hobby.

So if you feel a little low or need a pickmeup, then click on this link below which shows HUGE tanks. It’s just totally inspiring. And if you like the clip, perhaps you could write a brief comment why it inspires you.

Stop fairground fish from being won at the fairs

This is something I can very passionate about but I’ll keep it brief. Goldfish should not be won as prizes at fairs. They are a pet after all, not a spur of the moment idea. More often than not they will die terrible deaths as the new owners are not prepared to give them an appropriate home.

Therefore I am asking you to sign this petition if you agree with me:

Aquatic bulbs – they’re sooo easy to grow

Ever struggled with your aquatic bulbs? Ever wondered if they might be tricky to grow? The short answer is that they are SUPER EASY TO GROW.

They need so little really. I mean we keep ours in water with no substrate, no nutrients and they still grow quickly and easily. But it gets better though…

Many people want plants that will cover up their filters which is totally understandable and bulbs will do just that. On the whole they tend to grow fairly large so if there is something you want covering up, then aquatic bulbs could be just the ticket. When planting them, make sure you only half plant them – this means half in the substrate and half out of it. If you totally bury them they’ll rot.
