    Which camera?

    Ive got an 550D and its a great body, you only get a few extra features on the 600D, which for me didn't justify the extra cash. Got it at a good price second hand. Sam

    Glass diffusers

    Yep I used them for years, only switched to an inline diffuser so get more kit out of the tank. I was running a nano diffuser on my 250lt as well, so that one should be fine. I would suggest getting two so you can clean one whilst the other is in the tank (they are also very easy to break!) Sam

    Imported needle valves?

    I've used one from AquaticMagic, its the one in my DIY disposable co2 guide. Seemed to work ok at the time. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CO2-Needle-Va ... 4ceb79411b Sam

    Cheap Pressurised Co2 solution

    How big is the tank? You might not need a 2kg FE is my thinking. If money is really tight, do away with the solenoid, running co2 24/7 hasn't done my tanks (or fish) any harm as far as I know. Sam

    Cheap pressurised CO2 system DIY guide

    2 months seems about right. Have you tried submerging the lot in a bucket of water to check for bubbles? It shouldn't damage the reg as this is how i first tested this kit.

    Cheap pressurised CO2 system DIY guide

    Not using it on an FE but I have got it on a large pub co2 cylinder. You need an adaptor to get it to fit which no one seems to be doing anymore.

    Volunteer needed for St Kilda ecology field trip

    Dam,I missed this!! I would have been well up for this if I could have organised the time off, would have been a nice change from the normal rat race of my ecologist job.

    Its a free country, buy from who you want to! :lol: But you do get what you pay for. Tropica spend a lot of money looking for new plants and bring 5-6 (if not more) new plants to the hobby every year. Books take years to write and publish so will never be fully up-to-date on all the latest...
