    Online fish sellers

    I have had fish delivered from Tropco and also bought direct from there physical location. very impressed. Their warehouse is quite impressive. I have also visited one of the other well known places mentioned on here- and was not in the same league. Alan

    Hatchet Fish and high flow

    Tempted to give it a go. My Vallis is now more than reaching the surface which will break the flow. I have Rotala in front of the outlets which must disperse flow.

    Hatchet Fish and high flow

    I have a standard FX4 outflow- but I do have Vallis and Rotala and pogestomon erectus hat grows to the top. Usually have a small clump of hornwort floating as well. I need to think about it.

    Hatchet Fish and high flow

    It would be 24/7. Not much I can do about that. In a smaller tank opportunity to get out of flow at the surface is limited. My Tetras have no issue.

    Hatchet Fish and high flow

    I have a 200l with an FX4, so flow and surface movement is high. Has anyone experience of Hatchet fish in high flow. I suspect it's a no no. Alan

    Bad back and carrying 25L contaners-Options?

    So last weekend I tried my solution which seems to work. Friday evening, Bring 120 litre barrel into through room at opposite end to tank. Fill with RO through slightly open window. Remineralize with tap and bring to temp. On Saturday I drain water from tank via the extra outlet on FX4. Run...

    I bought 2 of the 120L- more than I need- but can have one in garage full in case of emergencies- like I end up in pub.

    It turns out a booster pump doesn't help much! save 40 seconds a litre- whoopee doo! They look ideal! It would only have to be in my living room Friday night, just refill Fridays before water change.

    I need to pick up a nice big storage container somewhere- they seem to cost a fortune new!

    I have a tap adapter on order so hopefully can do it indoors. Unfortunately now have a combi boiler so no storage upstairs, bu got me thinking about installing the RO unit next to boiler!

    I'm assuming the booster purely boosts pressure and not temperature?

    I make my RO in the garden at present from a garden tap. I 'make' around a 100L. Storing upstairs won't get past Mrs C. It take around 3-4 hours I guess. A large container at height is something I've been thinking about but space again is an issue.

    I think I'm going to try pumping with RO straight in. The issue is I have a 2 hour window on Saturdays to get the job done, so if the booster pump does the job it will save a lot of lifting! I use about 30% tap so can use that to adjust temp if it goes to out of kilter.
