    EI Dosing - substitute for Chelated Trace Elements

    Do I make it up at 1 tsp per 500ml as with the APFUK trace elements?

    Thanks all. I've ordered a kilo of this stuff, although goodness knows how long it will take to use it!!

    EI Dosing - substitute for Chelated Trace Elements

    Hi all, I use EI dosing - separate macro and micro - which seems to work well enough. Unfortunately I've run out of dry chelated trace elements, and there seems to be no availability at the moment. Does anyone know of something I can use instead? I was considering Tropica Premium Fertiliser...

    Free Cherry Shrimp - Nottingham

    I'm looking to get rid of a few dozen more black cherry shrimp if anybody would like some - collection only. I'm based in West Bridgford, Nottingham.

    Free Cherry Shrimp - Nottingham

    Cool. I've noticed that the stripeys are a good deal bigger than the other cherries. I've got a few red/white stripeys - are they hybrids of my red cherries and my brown cardina or what?!

    Free Cherry Shrimp - Nottingham

    Oh really? I definitely only bought three different kinds (blue, red, and brown/white), and they were sold as cherries. Anyway they have been happily cross-breeding for a couple of years, I even have some all white and some red/white striped ones now. One day I would like to try to breed some...

    Free Cherry Shrimp - Nottingham

    Hi, A couple of years about I bought about twenty cherry shrimp - a mixture of red, blue and brown/white striped. I now have at least a couple of hundred (difficult to count them!) so I'm looking to rehome some of them. They are mostly black (no idea why). If anyone would like to take some...

    USB interface for Eheim Pro3e 2078

    You're welcome. Yeah I'm really disappointed with the software, it constantly hangs and crashes and obviously wasn't tested at all. The worse part is you have to pay through the nose for a special USB lead which you use once and then discover is next to useless! I've recently been...

    Juwel Vision 260

    Thank you. I also need some bright green crypts to break up the olive green ones (wendtii?) a bit.

    Juwel Vision 260

    Quick update as I haven't posted one for ages. The sand path became too much of a pain to maintain as the Amazonia is so light is was constantly blowing onto the sand (or being moved there by the shrimps), so I gave up and let the carpet of micranthemum monte carlo take over. The current is...

    USB interface for Eheim Pro3e 2078

    Here you go. If you're looking at the front of the filter, the socket is on the left hand side, at the back, just above the grey release clasp. It's covered by a little black cap which might be why you're struggling to find it! Hope this helps.

    USB interface for Eheim Pro3e 2078

    Did you solve this Madhav? I've previously had it working on my 2078 and I'm doing my monthly filter clean on Monday so I can take some photos of the location of the input socket if you like? The filter is in a cabinet so I can't really take any photos of it until then - the socket is...

    Eheim 3e 700 - poor flow rate

    I've got the 3e 600T which is also rated at 1850lph. I agree that the flow rate isn't amazing. You may already know this, but the maximum flow rate in "automatic" mode (in which the filter automatically increases flow to compensate for the media becoming blocked) is less than the maximum flow...
