    Battling with Hair Algae

    It's a thin green hair type of algae. This tank has more & better flow than my previous 2, I know flow is getting there as the moss grows quite quickly to say it's only 1wpg, and you can see waste in suspension and moving in that area. I'm reluctant to go pressurised just yet, as I'm doing...

    Battling with Hair Algae

    Had Hair algae growing in my Java moss for a few months now, and I can't seem to kill it off. I've tried reducing lighting periods (I'm only 1wpg anyway) and nutrients, and I'm still dosing liquid CO2. I've never had this problem before, it seems to be something unique to my 120l. None of my...

    Slapdash - 120l

    Tank seems to be growing quite nicely... Having a battle in the moss with hair algae, so have lowered the ferts a bit to try and combat that. Also the snail population are decimating my plants. Tank is now home to 6 Dwarf Rainbows, 2 Three Spot Gouramis, A Bristlenose & Albino Bristlenose...

    Noisy Tetratec EX1200 doing my head in

    Already on it. Poor customer service though. Won't be buying a tetratec again.

    Noisy Tetratec EX1200 doing my head in

    Getting a new filter head under warranty, will see if that solves it.

    Noisy Tetratec EX1200 doing my head in

    For the past few weeks now, I've been running a brand spanking TetraTec EX1200 I've had in the loft for over a year. The water's lovely & clear, but blahblahblahblah me is the filter noisy. I can shake it as much as I like but it doesn't get quieter. I've put a towel on the floor and wrapped a towel around...

    Adding more lighting to a Rekord 120

    I dose liquid CO2, might step up to pressurised one day. I'm not bothered for a super quick growing tank, just want nice luscious plants. Don't have the time to be trimming plants every few days. Link's in my signature anyway.

    Slapdash - 120l

    Well it's too loud to sleep with anyway, can be heard from a good few metres away very clearly. I'd contact them but I've had it sat in the loft a year waiting to be used.

    Adding more lighting to a Rekord 120

    Wanting to up the lighting in my Rekord 120. There's currently just the one big long tube in there as standard, which is a 30w Juwel "Daylight" Tube. This gives me 1wpg. Now, I'd like to increase it to at least 2 wpg to give my plants better chance of surviving, as I feel light (or lack of) is...

    Slapdash - 120l

    I've finally stepped up from my old 60l into a Juwel Rekord 120 I've had sat in the garage for a year. Basically, I transferred what was left of the 60l into the 120l. Slapdash is the name as there's no real thought or aquascaping, just want a natural looking and relatively carefree tank. So...
