    Swimming Pool Heater Pump for heating up centralised system fish room

    Well the link below is where I first found the heat pump for sale but the cost was a little prohibitive hence I hunted around to see if I can find similar item for a cheaper price. I suppose these heat pump was design specifically to be use for aquaculture and it is probably design very...

    Swimming Pool Heater Pump for heating up centralised system fish room

    What if you connect it to a swirl filter to remove the solid first then filter it through a series of brush and mesh and foams before directing the water to the heat pump? I know for sure that this was used in big scale aquaculture but does that mean they have heat pump of a different calibre...

    Swimming Pool Heater Pump for heating up centralised system fish room

    I've came across this product during my research for installing swimming pools. It basically work like a reverse air conditioninig unit where it extract the heat from the air surround the machine and transfer the heat to the water column it's meant to be heating up. It will work as long as the...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Just my wishful thinking and hoping that the dense plantation would have aided the shrimp in their survival. Well I'm so wrong. Even amano succumb to their little beaks! Anyway this is a long due update since the tank was setup. Sorry for the picture as it was uploaded on my iphone. Day 59...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Filter seemed to be coping well with these level of stocking. The fish death so far seemed to be due to bullying or jumping out of tank! So far I've lost about 20 tetras and 1 SAE. The otos and shrimp were dying one after another till I find out...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Well just a quick update after a little over 2 weeks since the tank has been setup. The plants so far is doing ok. Some thriving and some melting.... But I suppose this is expected due to all the things that had happened over the last 2 weeks! Let...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! TPN lacks N and P. TPN+ has all the nutrients. :) I was dosing 10mls for 90 litres tank so this tank would be roughly 15-20mls I would assume. Considering there is literally no kH in my water and low gH, I think I'm going to start doing EI dosing...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Done that. Running at 3bps now and dosing 25mls of TPN+ and lighting at 7hours a day at 150W besides that it will be 48W of T5HO. Just done it this morning and my HC started pearling! First time pearling with HC and this is without water changes...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! I think I have to agree with you on this one. After a long time of pondering on the topic, I've decided to go with a separate system for the chiller and the CO2 diffuser with the prefilter. The whole system linked together was causing too much...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Sigh. I missed the day when all I need to do is hide the heater behind the rocks and job done. First time using a chiller and it's possing as more of a problem than help. I think I'll either separate the system or purchase a sump tank with an...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! I thought that the external water pump was designed to cope with potential backpressure? Isn't that the reason why they quote how many metre of head it can provide? If the waterpump can handle this backpressure, I would rather leave the system as...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Thought about it but I think it will still be the same when I connect the chiller and the lily pipe. A pump rated 2000 litre would probably turn out to be running at 500lph under these pressure. Maybe I'll just invest in a big external pump like a...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! Sigh... This will mean that there will be 2 more intake and outflow pipe from the chiller system itself. I was hoping that I wouldn't need to resort to this. Maybe I'll just an over flow box and a sump to make it easier and scrap the external...

    3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Day 59

    Re: 3 feet tank now planted and scaped! Update! The whole system includes 3 meter of 16/22 hose that interconnect the prefilter, tetratec filter, chiller and the hailea pump. I tried removed the hailea pump but the air that was trapped in the system caused the tetratec to leak from the priming...
