I'm looking to control some existing DIY LED lights I have, to create a sunrise/sunset effect.
Is there any reason why an Aquaray lighting controller couldn't be hooked up to a DIY LED bar that has 5 Cree XP-Gs?
The other option I've been considering is the Flora-Mate controller connected to...
Re: Auto Dosing EI with a dosing pump (diagram and calculati
@ Another Will: I've been thinking along the same lines as you.
The control and reliability of using a medical infusion pump seems the way to go surely?
Sam, I just realised the how it connects and won't work effectively with my Fluval FX5 due to the size of the pipe-work.
I guess I'll stick to my DIY inline heater/reactor set-up for the time being.
Thanks for the confirmation though.
I planted HC in Eco-complete around 12 months ago and it did fine. This was/is my first so-called high-tech set-up (FE injected CO2/DIY external in-line reactor). The whole of the for-ground was covered by the HC and had to be pruned often as it was growing over itself. That was until I went...
I couldn't agree more. I have non return valves on all my taps that I use to supply water to the aquarium. Back-syphoning into the water supply is an issue with leaving a garden hose in a bucket of water or watering can in the garden too. I think it's mandatory to have a one-way valve fitted to...

I might try a 3 day black-out, afterall, I have nothing to loose!
Simon, thanks for the sympathy - hopefully I'll be...
Just got back from 3 weeks away. The CO2 ran out - don't know when, and the person who was supposed to be looking after the tank and dosing EI trapped his sciatic nerve so didn't dose or do the weekly 50% water changes :evil:
On my return I was greeted by a tank looking like this one pictured...
Sam, no problems so far - ramhorns just about wiped out - I couldn't count more than 2 small ones today! The Botia Striata had the job done in 24 hours. Really nice fish, and obvioulsy like to be in a group as the 3 I have are always together. I haven't seen them go anywhere near the Nerites.
