It is indeed upto the OP to choose and make the right decision. I've offered advice which clearly hasn't been interpreted in the right way. I've also attempted to disprove someone else's advice in a courteous manner and with the correct facts, it's a pity the same couldn't have been done in return.

I'm getting sick and tired of this.

The information you gave out has been factually wrong on both occasions, it's not about opinions. If you posted on any other reputable fishkeeping forum, you'd receive exactly the same replies. I'm one of the very small number of fishkeepers who actively post in this forum, I have a moral duty as a fishkeeper to ensure that any members seeking correct advice receive exactly that.

Welcome to the big bad world of basic fact, look the info up if you don't believe your own eyes!

Dont let it get to you,

You are very knowledgeable in this subject and are one of the only people I would trust advice from about it (that and camera's obviously).

I think the member is taking things a little personal It happens to us all at some point.

When the member throws down his/her ball and has a tantrum because of giving out some risky advice they're going to receive some constructive criticism for it, nothing more and nothing less.

Re: Here's my tank...help me fill it

so if kept to a minimum amount of fish and water quality kept fine then it wouldn't be a problem. That's what keeping fish is about. Anyway it's irrelevent bickering. I was just throwing ideas the op's way. But i think you probably get more fun out of telling people they are wrong than being helpfull.

I agree with you completely.

I have seen other posts made by the member and trust me you are not the only one in the firing line.

Just keep giving your fantastic advice. I do not think the OP would fill her tank with fish that she was not 100% sure about living a decent life in there. If that makes sense.

I'm not bickering, you are because you just won't accept the fact you were wrong. If you're not convinced, look the info up on the net from reputable sources.

I have tried to be helpful, you flew off the handle with no valid reason other than what I've stated above. I don't prowl the forum shooting down advice intentionally, I aim to correct advice that is going to result in tears.

Re: Here's my tank...help me fill it

yes ill admit i was irritated by posts in another forum and i don't normally let it get to me as it's just a bloody forum! So i apologise. I still stand by my recommendation of fish though, maybe the goldfish would get 2 big but the others would be ok. IMO. But hey I'm not chillinator so i must be wrong. P.s. That last bit was a joke but probably true all the same lol

No apology needed, obviously I'll still have to disagree with the choice of fish as they will all grow too big. A six-inch goldfish wouldn't look too good in a tiny 35 litre tank!

And about the last bit, that's quite wrong.

Re: Here's my tank...help me fill it

I quite fancy a 35l shrimp tank.. Get some bogwood and java moss, maybe a betta to liven up the middle.
sorted!!
