    Light unit query

    As T5 Ballasts are electronic it will just stop. Its the old wire wound ballasts found on some T8 and metal halide lights that are more likely to catch fire but even this is rare.

    As the lamps are a higher wattage than the ballast it may well mean that the ballast will be working harder than it is designed for and sooner or later will stop working. Cheers Gordon.

    How about one of these for the CO2 Injection second item down. 22mm tee with a 5mm branch, they also got a 16mm one, and a 12mm one. http://www.fantasea.co.uk/acatalog/Piping_and_Accessories2.html Cheers Gordon.

    Peristaltic Pump

    Hi. Looks a nice find to me. Just make sure you get a 12v DC adaptor. The fact you can vary the motor speed is a bonus. If you decide to get one let us know how you get on with it. Cheers Gordon.

    Lily Pipes V Sprinkle Bar "UP DATE"

    Things should be ok, as what you have done is evenly spread the flow around the tank, instead of one small area. Where is your spray bar placed in the tank, and which direction are the holes facing? Cheers Gordon.

    Would this be of any use to you? http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1167. They also have a 15w version. Or maybe a heat mat? http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1168 Cheers Gordon.

    Auto Dosing EI with a dosing pump (diagram and calculations)

    Auto Dosing EI with a dosing pump (diagram and calculations)

    The pump as i understand it comes with the tubing in the photo, but not the connectors. Good to know air line hose can be used. Still on the look out for a decent second hand sp3000 though if one does not appear soon then this one will be next on the list. Cheers Gordon.

    Auto Dosing EI with a dosing pump (diagram and calculations)

    I actually think they are a fairly good price, especially if you happen to have a power supply kicking around already. Can normal air line hose be used for our requirements? Cheers Gordon.

    That's looking good, but my what a beast, i reckon that will be too big for most of the cabinets around. Good work though i must say. Cheers Gordon.

    No water will enter where the straight connector is. Thats why the bleed vavle is there, so you can bleed the air out. Looking great Ed. If you get enough interest for a second batch i will sure be interested. Just a thought could this be used at an angle if it wont fit upright in the cabient...

    Auto dry salt dosing, possible with this?

    Fair enough, i will be watching with interest as im waiting for some dry ferts (hopefully will arrive tomorrow) to make up the all in one solution. And i can be away sometimes in the week with work so can be a right pain at times. Cheers Gordon.

    Auto dry salt dosing, possible with this?

    Hi, This may be of use to you, i have found a timer that can be set from 1 second to 100 seconds and will repeat every 24 hours. Slight down side is it requires a 12v supply, but will switch a 240v load. http://www.quasarelectronics.com/ci0051.htm Cheers Gordon.
