You are right about the bigger dof with the smaller sensor on the iPad. To get a closer dof in the camera you’d need high f stops 16-22 but that requires a lot more light, hence you will need the flash. It all comes down to physics at the end of the day though and you’ll never get a larger dof...
I’m putting my eheim experience 350 onto my DENNERLE Scapers tank.
It’s got a 16/22mm hose but my nano pipes are 12/16mm so I’m looking to reduce them.
Rather than buy reducers then double taps has anyone ever reduced via a double tap? I was think of buying a 12/16mm DT and 16/22...
We've got malm in our house and knowing how they are built I absolutely wouldn't put anything heavy on them. They even tell you on the instructions to not put a TV on them. The way they are built it would just fold if the back panel gave way or came loose.
Just a little tip Dave when taking photos with the iPhone. If you put some card on the top lip of the tank and rest it on the light you’ll stop the glare which is reducing the contrast on your photos. Should get a better idea of what it looks like then [emoji1303]
Lovely hardscape and the plants have filled in really well with it. The Hue background looks great and its something Ive been wanting to try but I was considering going with frosted perspex like the ADA ones. I hadn't thought of just doing a film with the Hue. The blue night glow you've got...
Just to drag this one back up.
As there is no 120cm option for the ADA panel and Ive got a Phillips HUE lightstrip plus handy I was thinking of trying a DIY effort with a frosted panel of acrylic.
Does anyone know the lighting layout within the ADA panel? i.e. is is a single strip underneath...

Re filter I’ve always fancied getting a g6 for the handy cleaning. Not tried an oase filter sorry
You could contact Tom Barr directly on Facebook. He sells and ships big boxes of Manzi. You could probably make your money back by picking the pieces you want then selling the others on eBay.
If you are after a custom tank near to 60p then have a word with Nick Chan of aquarium cabinet...
Cubes are a pita to scape. Go with a mini-m
Re scaping the nano tanks. If you’re going low tech you’ll need to reduce the light output from the big leds. I usually smash loads of co2 into my high tech nanos at the beginning and keep them unstocked. Shrimp seem to do quite well in high co2 if...
Welcome back Dean. I am also back after a bit of an outage at home.
Currently designing a Dennelle scapers tank in my kitchen which Ill be putting pics up of soon.
If you want a Mini-m from the UK then sadly they are sold out at the main distributer Greenmachine. There may be some in the...

The deadline for the AGA entry is tomorrow (sept 18th) so if you're thinking of entering then pop over there to register and get your scapes in!
Ill be entering this (with plants in)
eg, this is from one of their posts so 6 euro per kg plus shipping
Materials: Ancient Stone
Price: 250zł /60EUR
It was 50Kg for the 120cm but that won't be valid now. They were just starting out and have increased their prices since then. Their Facebook page has examples of layouts with weights and prices in euros with shipping so you will be able to work out the per kilo price
Yep thats the same people. Aquaman he goes by. I bought a complete hardscape but changed it was I was using wood.
I was a bit nervous about transferring £200 to a polish bank but it came off well in the end :)
Not many have used manten as you'd need to sell several kidneys. Don't think the stuff ae sells is manten as its more rounded. Should make a nice iwagumi though. Have a look on the Ada website for examples
Got to be honest. If I see a thread entitled "Hi there" then I'm 99% sure thats a new member introducing themselves in the "New Members Introductions" sub-forum.
If they then ask about co2 then we as members can either answer it quickly or guide them to make a new post in the co2 forum...
if you can, get it in a big bucket of water now and flush it now and again until it goes into the tank. I tried akadama once and it was dusty as hell. Moler clay is harder than akadama but I stick to soils now.
and don't forget that Mark was using his 135mm on a full frame body so it was actually 135mm. On your camera the Nikkor 135mm would be 202mm as I think you have a crop factor of 1.5 on nikons? (if they work the same as canon which is 1.6)
You mentioned above about getting a wide for great...
If you've already got the old 50mm then the sigma and tamron are very good and have a limited macro function although I tend to favour Sigma.
Re the 50mm you said you've got the old version. Is this the mk1 as it was seen as a better lens than the mk2 you've linked to? The newest 50mm f1.8...
you are correct and you're not missing anything!
Both the normal and plus can be used braceless or with the lid. The dearer plus has the upgraded LED's with no lid as its not needed. The cheaper version comes with the lid to house the T5 lamps
