    A Yorkshire Beck - 120l....

    Still no photos I'm afraid, sorry. The Celebes have begun breeding properly so the tank is geared up to that at the moment which means a 14 hour photoperiod and a slight algal outbreak but only on the Bolbitis so far. I am now the proud mum of 4x1month old Celebes fry plus 10 or so eggs close...

    LunaPet Solenoid

    I didn't cut it off but it is a 2 pin plug though it ws sold as suitable for GB. If I send it back will they get what I'm saying, basically, do they speak English? It also says on the item listing that it comes with instructions etc to download and I can't find any link anywhere for that.

    LunaPet Solenoid

    Hiya, I finally got the money together to buy a new solenoid from LunaPet. After 2 weeks it arrived today so I set it up and plugged it into the same adaptor that I used with the previous one. A large bang and a pretty blue flash from the solenoid later and I'm not sure what I did wrong :( ...

    A Yorkshire Beck - 120l....

    Quick non-photographic update! The Hydrocotyle is looking somewhat sad as all the original leaves have died off but there is plenty of new growth. The E tennellus has gone mad and the cryps are all looking great! The only problem is a bit of BBA caused by having to turn the CO2 on/off manually...

    Unable to turn CO2 off

    I'd be surprised if they'd take it back after I've removed the horn etc. Admittedly my solenoid is also broken and I have been waiting until payday to buy a replacement. Would a new solenoid shut the gas off if the valve on the fe is dodgy? OFSTED are leaving today!!!! YAY

    Unable to turn CO2 off

    Hi, I recently bought a replacement FE from screwfix (rip off and long story) and set it up tonight but unlike the other ones I have had before it doesn't seem to turn off the flow when the handles are released. Call me blonde but am I missing something really obvious? Bearing in mind that I'm...

    grees spot algae on anubias only ? what to do

    That was my first thought too Arana! It sounds like it's tank or tap water in the drop checker as opposed to 4dkh. Invest in a bottle of 4dkh water for your drop checker, it'll give false results otherwise...

    Time for a new scape (The End)

    Re: Time for a new scape I echo Mark's sentiments, but once you've ot bored with a scape the maintenance becomes a chore and that defeats the whole object of keeping the tank. It certainly evolved over the 12 months!

    Re: "Prairie Lands"... all things 'blue' That looks fantastic! What more could I say!

    A Yorkshire Beck - 120l....

    Well, I sussed out what I did wrong with the camera so took some more pics, though the equipment was back in by then. I have forgotten what I did already but the colours are more accurate :wink:

    A Yorkshire Beck - 120l....

    The fish are looking a lot better for the new filter and I have some more on order which should bring my total to about 25 pencils. They were due to be in at my local MA on Tuesday but they are being shipped from Indonesia and with the bad weather they've had there, they've not been dispatched...

    Desk Nano, your input? :)

    Where are the photos you promised? I must admit that I have a secret love of guppies, though I've never kept them :shh:

    Niall's juwel vision 180 progress

    I love that aponogeton(?) on the rear right! I've been wanting a pair or trio of Cockatoos for a while but I think they'd make mincemeat of my cherry shrimp babies!!

    Slapdash - 120l

    Good luck with the Hygro, I always manage to kill it even in a high tech tank...
