    Cheap pressurised CO2 system DIY guide

    I don't know if everyone else has bigger cabinets than me, but the internal height of mine is 23.5 inches. Will I be able to fit a 2kg FE and reg in this space? I would have imagined most cabinets are the same sort of height?

    Discussion: Are we obsessed with circulation and flow?

    I'm a great believer in keeping tanks clean and I think high flow/filtration at 10x helps to achieve this. It's definitely possible to have lower flow like Amano and others as long as you're meticulous in removing dirt/detritus. In the marine world high flow has been found to be necessary for...

    Fish 101 Precision Regulator

    I think the solenoid bit is a copy/paste error from the other regulator they sell. I have emailed them already but they're just resellers so have no other knowledge of it. What they have on the ebay item is just stuff repeated from the instructions/box - and they also said the instructions were...

    Re: Krish's 60L Fern Mountain Usually attributed to a low phosphate level, so you could up the ferts in this area. Mind you, if it's just a bit on the glass and/or anubias leaves I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just clean it off regularly and do good water changes. I thought the previous...

    Juwel Rio 180L Aquascape Diary

    I prefer the tunnel idea. You're going to lots of plants in there though to make it work and I think your rocks are too small. They'll get swallowed up in a couple of weeks. You could put them in the entrance to the tunnel and keep that bit fairly bare. Not sure on the left most branch. Seems a...
