I have a little 24 liter tank with two male guppies and a 200 liter community tank with an assortment of fish. Unfortunately my Betta died a while ago but I still hang around on this forum.

Although there is a lack of Bettas in the UK, I think we are very well off with general fishkeeping, since most aquatics stores have a high standard of care and tanks here are good quality. However, I wish Hang-on-the-back filters were more common here because they seem so much more convenient and space-saving.

And yes, I am in Year 10 :) I started fishkeeping when I was in Year 8.

@horsyqueen All I've ever seen are blue or red veiltails! The sheer lack of them is so annoying, especially when in most shops they are just thrown in with other fish with which they aren't compatible :(

Yer there is alot of good fish keeping places. The best thing about the British aquatics I find is they have the Aquatics Live, Everything there is sooo cheap and really cool.

I have had my eye on getting a sorta marble colored Plakat, I havn't seen any in British stores.

I am in year 11 and started I think around year 7 maby 6.

I went two years ago, I don't live in London so its hard to go in a way. I got a 15L glass aquarium kit, aquascaping tools, plants, loads of food and information leaflets.

I find that eBay is the best place for buying fish supplies. A lot of other online sites have big postage costs.

Just looking through the pictures of last year's convention on Facebook, looks pretty cool. Seems like there's lots of tanks to look at. I don't think I'll go though, it's too long a journey!
