(cont.) So yeah, if you know anyone in your extensive betta web from the UK, point me in their direction! I’d love to give a home to one of these beautiful sea princesses. Already looked at set ups and plants, it’s going to be a fabulous underwater forest. Have an ace day oxox
Hi there thenicotinenightmare! Can I just say how excellently worded this was? I don’t know if you’re a writer as well as a budding zoologist, but you have a gift. Seriously. (Also; I really enjoy getting messages!)
There are a few fishblr people who are in the UK, but I can’t remember who they are and that doesn’t exactly help. Folks closer to your continent might know, for example aquarium44 (Germany) and omgnumbat (Denmark). Maybe it’ll help if I do this:
ENGLISH/WELSH/IRISH/SCOTTISH aka BRITISH fish-keepers, please reblog this with a comment so that you can find each other in the notes!
Everyone else, please signal boost this so the UK fish community people can find each other!
I would love to compile all those tips and bits of UK-specific advice into an informative post for you folks. I suspect you’re not alone in wondering how to get started. There may even be location-specific laws.
Best of luck to you, and I hope to see more of your posts in the fishblr tag when you take the plunge!
I’d be happy to help but most of the shops I know are indeed German. They might deliver to the UK but it’s pretty expensive and therefore senseless.
Any UK fish keepers / aquarium people here? Please help :)
Hi Anon, it’s a bit difficult to determine the white stuff without a picture. Maybe you could submit a picture? And how old is the setup? I’d assume it is a bacterial slime mold, usually it’s harmless but ugly indeed. This occurs often when a setup is relatively new and should disappear soon by itself. You could also add some snails, ramshorns or similar, they might eat the mold.
