    LunaPet Solenoid

    Hiya, I finally got the money together to buy a new solenoid from LunaPet. After 2 weeks it arrived today so I set it up and plugged it into the same adaptor that I used with the previous one. A large bang and a pretty blue flash from the solenoid later and I'm not sure what I did wrong :( ...

    Unable to turn CO2 off

    Hi, I recently bought a replacement FE from screwfix (rip off and long story) and set it up tonight but unlike the other ones I have had before it doesn't seem to turn off the flow when the handles are released.

    Best way to add CO2 to a 120cm tank

    As the title suggests, I have a 120x40x40cm tank and I'm thinking of going down the pressurised CO2 route. However, I'm concerned about getting the distribution right on a tank this size. At the moment I'm running a Fluval 405 with 2x36w tubes. I've only used the Nutrafin system on my smaller...

    DIY Bubble counter problem...

    Hi, I have made a DIY bubble counter from a 500ml pop bottle. I can see the bubbles coming from the Nutrafin canister into the counter, but there's nowt coming from the counter to the diffuser (ladder supplied with Nutrafin system)... I'm pretty sure I have no leaks :? as I've sealed the holes...
