    Oase Biomaster hard to remove prefilter and hose adapter (under pressure)

    Yes I use a inline diffuser. Lots of others on here use an inline so I'm not sure that is doing it. mine is rather difficult to remove now.

    Oase Biomaster hard to remove prefilter and hose adapter (under pressure)

    I have exactly the same thing. I need to forcefully remove the hose adaptor, to the point I'm worried I'm going to pull the pipes off. I don't have a solution but I'm following to see what others say.

    Nano tank with carpet substrate choice??

    I've had good results with tropica powder soil. Very good soil.

    I've only bought msg04 from there, everything else is from aquarium plant food

    Best place to purchase dry salts

    I use hexealchemicals as well, 10kilo bucket. Lasts for a while 😂 As far as I'm aware the heptahydrate is the only way the salt can be stored, @dw1305 answered my queries on that before.

    Planaria, are they an issue?

    Be mindful if you do dose the tank that you will need to remove all remnants of the medication from the glass and other surfaces before adding your nerites back, but I'm sure it will say that on the meds instructions.

    Planaria, are they an issue?

    Just want to add that I lost all my ramshorns when I dosed the tank, as well as a few amano shrimp. Coincidence maybe but I'm not sure. I did 2 weeks of daily water changes after the course was completed so I doubt it was ammonia related. I've also not been able to put nerites back in the tank...

    Rescape and temp tank help

    The cement tub look good, fish would be happy in there being dark too, I'm guessing they're pretty solid?

    Rescape and temp tank help

    To be honest it's a good excuse for a rescape. Plus not convinced I should be placing 300 plus kilo up on my landing 😱, I wouldn't trust Barratt to have made strong enough flooring. Also I couldn't move the tank with rocks and substrate in situ, far to heavy and would make far too much mess. I...

    Lighting

    Twinstar is a very good led, grows any plant you want, controllable and very very good value for money. I had one for a while. All depends what your plans are regarding your tank, co2 high light or low light no co2 etc.

    Rescape and temp tank help

    Hi guys, The whole downstairs of our house is due for redecoration and new flooring so I have to temporarily move the tank. Therefore I've decided I will rescape the tank. Can anyone recommend a good temporary home for all my fish and shrimp? I've been looking at storage boxes but was worried...

    Hemianthus Micranthemoides

    Yeah that's what I've found recently, I went through a stage of trying to limit my ferts, chasing the reds on the H'ra etc, but the plants all slowed and looked a little unhappy. Since changing back to full EI the HM has exploded and is happily pearling away after a couple hours.

    Hemianthus Micranthemoides

    Yea I have it growing in mine. Grows like a weed. Nice and Bushy, find it very easy to grow, not sure how it would fare with low light/co2 etc. I trim mine back every 3 to 4 weeks normally but left it longer this time to allow it to reach the surface. Aquarium Gardens have it in their 900 which...
