    Reusing ADA Aquasoil

    I plan on stripping down my 60cm and doing a new scape. Can I use the old aquasoil without any issues? Has anyone done this? Jake.

    Holiday Time - Open Top tank?

    The plexiglas idea sounds best, Does it have to cover the entire top? by that i mean do i need to drill holes for the lilly pipe etc.

    Holiday Time - Open Top tank?

    I'm going away soon for two weeks and as I have an open top tank I am a bit worried about the water level dropping. I was thinking about using cling film? or going to B&Q for some perspex to lay on top - would this help? Any holiday tips?? Jake.

    Recommend an external for my 60l

    The 205 is sufficient for my 60L but I want more flow - see pic. I plan on tearing down and doing a new scape as lots of my HC has died off. Also I hate the valve setup on the Fluval, they are fixed and dont allow any adjustment in the direction of the pipework. I plan on buying a Tetratec 1200...

    Recommend an external for my 60l

    The EX1200 has 15mm fittings, would it be ok to use a reducer on the Hydor?

    Recommend an external for my 60l

    I currently have a Fluval 205 on my 30x30x36 60l opti tank. I want to replace it as it has been repaired once already. Can anyone recommend another suitable filter other than another Fluval? bear in mind I also use a Hydor 200W external heater [12mm fittings]. Tetratec ex700 any good? Jake.

    Tips for pruning Rotala SP Green

    I need some advice getting my Rotala to grow more bush like, at the moment it looks a bit unsightly just long stems reaching to the top of the tank [60p]. Should I cut it low to promote outward growth??? whats the secret :D
