this is a worry, answering my own post
if i reduce to 1 filter thereby making the scaping a little eaiser with my drilled preference, its just a case of which filter ?
I was going for Tetratec EX 1200 External Filter x 2
So now i need filter which is up to the job ?
Looking around how about...
I am still quite keen on drilled mainly because of my space limitations, novice ?, in terms of some folk, yes indeed, its my second tank, my first was a touch larger see here
So if i purse drilled I do need help on postiioning and any extra kit required ?
To much flow, not enough etc, so I've read and re read and am going for
Tetratec EX 1200 External Filter x 2
they will fit nicely in the cabinet and I will have space for the the External Heater and the inline CO2 Feed
So now I've finally decided I'm still looking to have drilled as I have no...
Thanks for this, its godo to get the differing opinions. So ive looked at the TetraTec EX external filter - EX1200 which seems fine and I can see advantages to haveing two filters. So taking this futher rather than then connecting an external inlien heater I could simply get two filters with...
hm so 1700ltr per hour is insuffcient ?, I assuemed that as it has two inlets and 2 outlets I could have the strategically placed and that would be fine, I guess not so i need two filters - anyone suggest which two ?
Re: Money no Object â€“ Space is AquaEl External uni Max 700
After yet more research Im thinking of a singel AquaEl External uni Max 700 for filtrations, apparently it has 2 in and 2 out flows so these can be spread round the tank for max circulation.
As a reminder here is the size and...
Progress but as always thoughts apprecaited
Tank: Opti White High Clarity Tank 75x45x45cm (158 ltrs)
Lighting: Arcadia Series 4 Pendant 70cm - 1x150w 5200K+ 2x24w
So filter, I have a new unused Rena XP4 - I think thats up to the job ?
I will use an extenal heater and inline CO2
I have found this: http://www.rocketaquatics.co.uk/classica-150w-double-metal-halide-pendant-with-moonlight-freshwater-p-1749.html
Depending upon the width this seems ideal, does any member have one ?
Thanks for the help so far, im looking for hight tech so CO2 and lighting will be crucial. However as filtration etc will all depend on volume
so im thinking 75cm Wide, and say 45 cm deep and 50 cms High -
37 Gallons (UK) OR 44 us OR 140 Ltrs
so using 2.5wpg i need 140 watt (I think)
Time for a new planted tank, price is no object so thatâ€™s good, however space is, the gap it needs to fit into is 79cms wide.
So im think to maximise the internal space in need an external filter heater
Im after planted but am not sure if I need to inject CO2 ?, if I do then im thinking...
As some of you may be aware I was 2 months in with my Rena 200 Planted tank all was going well and I moved, tank could not come with me as it would not fit â€“ such is life, however I learn a lot.
I will have a new space shortly (once the floor is done) so Iâ€™m off again.
I have a space...
