Hi all thank you all for your continued help and support through my very rough patch. I’v had a lot to come to terms with in a very short space of time as my condition changed literally overnight. To say it’s been a shock would be an understatement. I’v had to sell George Oliver and now I am having to sell my Electric tricycle. There is some happy and exciting news to I’m going to get some tropical fish. Of corse do expect lots of pics lol. I’m hoping to get the tank in the next couple of weeks then when it’s up and reddy can start to add the fish
Well another Reality check today - British Heart Fou...
British Heart Foundation
I'm so sorry you're having to rehome your wee man and the electric trike, would it be horribly ill-mannered of me to ask what change of circumstances have brought on the sad losses?
But oooh, tropical fish! Er, may I steer you away from cichlids? Blimey are those the most incredibly proper little pigs ever - I used to have to have a double-strength pump and filter to keep the water clean in the oscar's tank plus a shedload of other extra work with him even though he shared quarters with a huge plecostomus the fish lady swore would keep the tank sparkly, lol!
My heart failure has dramatically deteriorated and my mum comes in once a day to help me wash and get dressed. I’m on 4LRs of oxygen 24/7 and get really tired doing the most simplest of things
Up to 4L now, Tori, I was afraid of that and I am so sorry to hear how things are with your heart the now. Hopefully you'll be on the transplant list and fast-tracked to a new heart very soon.

Hi B2B, I am so upset at reading your post and need some time to reply. What an incredible lady you are. Xxx
Hi Tori, Its been a while since I've looked at the posts. Pleased to see you are back home, but sorry to learn of the deterioration in your heart health. Hopefully though, this will now speed the path to that new heart you've been waiting for. I've kept tropical fish for over 30 years. I agree with the earlier comments about not going for cichlids, at least at the start. The secret of success is to build up your fish stock slowly, giving plenty of time for the tank to stabilize before you add any fish and then to add them a few at a time and make sure you don't overstock. It is so tempting to rush things when you first start which can lead to multiple problems and discouragement. I know, I've been there and watched my daughter make the same mistakes. With patience you'll have a beautiful tank which will give endless pleasure and relaxation. Looking forward to the pics. Like the rest of the community I'll be thinking of you and crossing my fingers and toes for your Newcastle appointment.
I’m going to start with some guppies and other easy to care for fish. My tank is 4ft so will start out with about 30 fish 🐟🐟🐟🐟🐠🐠🐠🐠
Sounds great and guppies are a good fish to start with. You can get some amazing colour variations and when they are ready to breed you'll have the fun of seeing all the babies and their colours. Platys are good for producing young too. You can get a few different colour variations. One advantage of having plants is that they give the young somewhere to hide so they all don't get eaten, but there are other solutions if you want the young to survive and don't want a planted tank. A 4 foot tank is a really good size. I can see you are in for many, many hours of enjoyment. Keep us all posted.
I can’t wait to get them it’s a hobby that will be really enjoyable and relaxing. And my mum and dad will sort out the cleaning of the tank one that needs doing xx
