    Help .... got Malaysian Trumpet Snail

    Hi all i had these beasts once put some plants in when i went on holidays came back and they were everywhere tried snail cures ,clown loaches nothing worked sowhat i did was to get a four litre plastic ice cream container emptied all the gravel out of the tank washed the tank down with salt then put the icecream container in the microwave and nuked them for five mins until all the gravel was done never seen a snail since but the downside is you have to strip the tank down

    Fish TB or Mycobacteriosis

    Hi all i kept rainbow fish for years and this is a terrible thing to see fish waste away they will sometimes gasp at the top of the tank their desire to eat is still there they will swim towards the food eat it then spit it out they develope sores some rainbows seem to be immune to it what i did find was you were better off buying stock from groups like angfa other than a random shop I wonder if a lot this myco came in with stock from asian fish farms. I now only keep tropheus its such a shame rainbows are beautiful fish

    cyyprichromis leptosoma kitumba ?

    Thanks Roscoe I thought it would be odd for their to be two types Because you would think they would naturally cross being in the same area Once again thanks Cheers mick

Hi guys just hoping someone can clarify this for me I brought some cyp kitumba jumbo Locally I then ordered some from Germany just titled cyp kitumba no jumbo in the name are these The same fish or are there two types from the one area just don't want to mix them if they are different So the question is cyp leptosoma kitumba jumbo or cyp leptosoma kitumba are they the same Hope someone can solve this for me Cheers mick
