Aquarium heaters - The basics For those of you who have kept aquariums for a while. You will no doubt know enough about heaters. But for those who are brand new to Tropical fish, you may have a few (or many) questions about them. A little knowledge behind heaters is always useful, certainly if you're just starting out.
DIY Python aquarium hose Most aquarists with a larger aquarium(s) will have come across the Python water change hose system. This kit is great and it certainly saves a lot of the work of lifting buckets around. Plus it saves time too. This bit of kit is a great idea, and I have considered buying one a few times, but never have. The reason I haven't bought on is that I use a similar system that cost a lot less than a Python aquarium hose does.
Running a Fish room Running a Fish room is a dream for most aquarists. With this being such an addictive hobby, it can easily go from getting your first tank to having multiple tank syndrome very quickly. The issue is that this hobby isn't the cheapest. With external filters costing 100's of pounds alone, there are running costs to consider too.
Aquarium filter setup Filter setup can seem relatively straight forward, with many filters arriving with pre-installed media. You may also think that as long as each type of media is somewhere in the filter, it will do its job. You would be right. But there are ways to make it far more effective.
