    Woodland Troll - Take Four

    Hi Tim, Thats a shame. Some of your other scapes have been spot on so i expected you'd be able to recover this. Just noticed you are in Leicester. Do you use any of the local places for anything plant related?

    Persistent Diatoms in Mature Tanks & GDA

    Hi john, Interesting read as I've also had a similar problem with, what I assume is diatoms, for all my aquarium owning time. Its particularly strong on hard scape however I'm having a bit of success at the moment where plants are seemingly growing better than ever. I also get it a little on...

    Contact details for Aquael?

    Hi guys, does anyone have a working email address for Aquael? I need to get hold of them as I have a filter issue drawing in air. Seems the contact form doesn't work on their site? Cheers

    I'm also having the same problem. Out of interest, how did you contact them? I've tried their online form which doesn't work so I've emailed the info email address. Haven't had any response at present.

    Magnesium in tap water

    Is there a way to combat this outside of RO water? I was tempted to give RO a go but then its just another expense. Are you saying that magnesium isn't something we get much of over the UK in tap water?

    Magnesium in tap water

    Thanks Darrel. So based on that, is it worth me adding Epson Salts or would my trace mix be enough? I have been adding but i guess by doing so I'm hardening my already hard water. Is that right?

    Magnesium in tap water

    Funnily enough I had read that article. With EI dosing, what would you say is the target value for it?

    Magnesium in tap water

    Hi guys, I was reading an interesting threat on using epson salts as part of the EI regiem and that Gh of tap water may not be a mix of calcium and magnesium. So I did some digging on Severn Trent's webpage and found that magnese is 1.1 parts per BILLION. I can't find anything relating to...

    New filter needed for 180L Tank - eheim Pro 3 has developed a leak!

    Hi Guys, Simple question: What new filter should I get for my 180L tank? My current one was 1850L turnover per hour and was an Eheim pro 3. This was one of the ones that had a design flaw whereby the head fills with water due to a problem with the primer. Has this issue been fixed on the...

    Where to buy dry salts?

    Hi Darrel. Whats the correlation here (in simple terms) around hard water and it making use of fertilisers? what is concidered hard water? I've recently been toying with the idea of an RO unit to see how that affects plants.

    I've seen these when searching. No telephone number or address though so made me sceptical. Are they trusted?
