Been away from the hobby for many years now. But I can't seen to find any local breeders of quality Trops ( Community Fish ) in the Newcastle area.......there used to be loads? Can anyone help? o_O

I get all mine from Pets at Home, they are a good price and have a great range. Never had any issues.

Have you had a look on aquarist classifieds ? , usually loads for sale on there :)

From what I have seen it is very dependant on the store you go to .....

Not exactly what the OP is requesting but just having a whine. My Tetra's keep swimming into the circulation fan and killing themselves. I had about 40 and just today 3 have swam into the inlet and died..

Not very clever but expensive, quite annoying!

Would it be possible to put some fine mesh over the inlet ? ....

I tried the mesh but i am on the hunt for a finer mesh but in green and non toxic, a little difficult. They swim up and due to it's power, get dragged into the sides. I have a 55g tank so a smaller one would not circulate the water good enough.

I thought that sort of thing was only necessary for marine/corals?

So are they actually getting into it or just trapped against the sides?

Should be in all tanks, helps with water hot/cold spots, circualtion of bacteria etcetera. They are getting sucked into the sides and then die.. See it frequently at the 5+ aquarium shops in our area, just 'one of them things' apparently...

I've only ever had all-in-one internal filters that circulate the water. Sorry if I'm being dense but I'm still not clear if they are getting inside or just being sucked up against the sides & then can't escape?

Distinguished Member
They are getting sucked in to the sides of the plastic external casing, the suction of the water against the size of the fish makes it impossible for them to get 'off'. I will try the wire mesh if i can source it.

I have a Tetratec 1200 that filters well, but it's a large(ish) tank so it did get cold water spots, so a good circualtion fan stops that from happening.

Not seen one of these in a trop tank and it looks lethal for fish, remove it mate it isn't necessary, not a wonder your fish are getting minced.

Can I ask why it's not necessary as near enough all sites state they are?

Water Movement



Cheers

Mate that is a cooling fan used for marines and not for in the water. The filter you are using creates the water movement you require with the use of spray bars, etc.
Who ever sold you that to create water movement was BS'n you.

I beg to differ, I took loads of advice on setting up the tank to ensure and no one has ever said do not use a circulation fan. It has so many benefits over still water, i do not understand why you say No?

BB, your water wont be still as long as it's getting filtered and I promise that fan thing as you have already found out is not for inside and aquarium.

It's a sealed/waterproof electrical device with suction cups, of course it's fir the inside.

I only have the tetratec1200 so the flow is great but nowhere near compatible to circulate a 55g tank.

I'll take a photo.

As the photo shows the water flow from the fan helps with the circulation. The pump is on the left hand side so you would have still water on the right hand side.
