    Teak Root Mini 2

    Thanks for the tips. Deer/Michael W I actually just stopped using Excel a week or two ago but I think I'll go back to it along with an intermittent lighting schedule.

    ADA 90P "no name" scape

    Thanks Jack, looks good I'll have to order a regulator. Regarding the Grand Solar, you're saying the Halogen (Central light) requires a 100v to 230v transformer, but the outside (Flurorescents) don't? If you could post a pic of your transformer and what it's connected to that'd be great :)

    Filling close to the top is a temptation but it creates a lot of issues with escapees and also causes a capillary action on glassware which results in water dripping out of the tank and onto the floor.

    No problem. Eheim is quieter. The Iwaki MD- range all use AC motors so whilst you could in theory reduce the speed by reducing the current it is not ideal.
