    Mounting TMC Tile over 15L Pico?

    Hi guys, So currently I've got a TMC Aquaray Mini LED 400 over my TMC Microhabitat 15. Its producing great results, but on such a small aquarium the mount supplied with it is really making it look cluttered. I want to suspend the tile about 3 inches from the surface. First off: - Will...

    Any Divers Out There?

    Cool, I was thinking of doing BSAC but the club trains mostly PADI so I just went along with it :) I'd love to try freediving but I've heard too many horror stories of blackouts. Thats pretty cool though I'll jump on and have a look :D

    Any Divers Out There?

    Hey guys! I'm loving Uni at the moment, Bangor is great and I love my course. I've been doing a bit of dive training the past 3 weeks and I'm now a qualified open water diver :D So pretty chuffed with that, going to do the advanced open water soon. Anybody else on here dive?

    240cm Custom Starphire Scape

    Great tank, going to be tough keeping it pretty from that many angles though! Think this is going to be a good 'un. The lights are a bit blue for my liking but I'm sure it will look good when it's all done :D I'd agree with Chris above on the powerheads.

    Anybody keep any carnivorous plants?

    Hi guys, As I'm in Uni now, my head has been melted with stuff to do. Thats why I haven't been as active as usual, which I'm not liking! Anyway, the Uni runs Treborth Botanical Gardens, here in Bangor. They have a few lovely greenhouses, one of which is completely tropical and overgrown with...

    Utricularia Graminifolia

    I thought it was a bladder wort? Not a liver wort? The "bladders" are what traps the small insects, and they're not on the leaves they're on the roots as Darrel said. Beautiful flowers though.
