Nice. Thats one hell of a discount, .

We saw some discus at one of the local fish shops. It had just had some babies, all swimming around sort of stuck to the side of it.

Nice. Discus are unforgiving fish, but I've considered a few.

Can anyone recommend a decent online UK retailer for a startup kit? Only want a small tropical setup I think.

Maidenhead Aquatic have a website, but personally when I started up ours, I found it much better to go to my local reputable garden centre's aquatic centre and ask for advice.

Its also good to see the aquariums they have on display so you can get the size you like etc.

More fisheeeees.

Went to pets at home in Leicester and got 5 neon tetras and 2 gouramis. All for just 10.

Really technical at pets at home too. I had to tell them the size of my tank, how many fish in there, what fish in there, planted or not, then I had to sign the form.

And if any fish die within seven days, you can take the fish back with a sample of water and they'll refund you or give you a new fish.

Really impressed with them. Although their plant wasn't very good, and even the woman serving us said its a tad expensive.

The babies were nursing. Closest thing you can call it. The get secretions from the parent's skin between the scales. Not really food but an immune system booster. Very hard to breed. Require a large tank and once you get a pair of Discus it's best to give the whole tank to them. Nervous around other fish when mating and raising babies.

Seriously beautiful fish and graceful as they swim side by side touching each other. That's how you can spot a pair. They pick their own mates and like to touch.

Had a look around a few shops yesterday, and mum kinda fell in love with the Sea Horses, they are nice, but very difficult to keep though.

One of my gouramis seems to be struggling.

Its sat at the bottom, hiding behind the wood since I put it in there on tuesday.

Its not moved, apart from when I was planting. And its not fed, never moves, not when the lights are on anyway. Don't know what it does when the lights are off, but I doubt it sudenly becomes as active as the other gourami.

Normal? Or should I take it back, pets at home will replace/refund if it dies within 7 days. But its not dead, but it doesn't seem quite right.

is it a dwarf gourami? ive found them to be hardy, maybe a water change might help him, youve prob thought of that already.
maybe just bring him back, theyre prob agree that theres something wrong with him?

maybe you just got a dud and he wont make it. guess just sit it through and see what happens is your only other option

Its not a dwarf, its just a normal Gourami.

What makes me think its the fish is that the other gourami that went in at the exact same time, and went through the exact same process from being bought to going into the water. And the other gourami is fine, was a bit sulky at first, but it came round pretty quickly. And the neons that went in at the same time are also fine.

Did some reading on gouramis last night.

Seems that they're pretty hardy. But the gold gouramis are usually very aggresive. But then there are people saying that theirs just goes and hides.

So I don't know, seems like it might just be normal behaviour.

Just went and watched them, see if the golden one did anything.

And it did come out once or twice. But as soon as it did, the other gourami just chased it around trying to nip at it, until the golden one had gone back to its hiding place.

I thought these were supposed to be peaceful fish, at least, two females should be peaceful shouldn't they.

Golden one is still very skittish though, if its out and it sees me move, its off at the speed of light.
The three spot one is fine though, and isn't shy at all.
