Ok snapped a pic.
These are the ones i bought for â‚¬1.40.
They were absolutely tiny if that makes a difference, you could have put 3...
They were labelled up cherry shrimps.
I'll snap a pic and post it up.
Managed to find 2 x cardinals locally â‚¬2.40.
The same shop had some cherry shrimps in at â‚¬1.40 so i bought 20 of them also.
Thanks for that :thumbup:
I'll do a search as they seem monumentally expensive on that site â‚¬8 each for cherry shrimp :shock:
Having major problems finding decent shrimps over here in Greece.
Is it safe to mail order shrimps from Europe?
If so anyone know of...
Ok snapped some pics.
Went up to 5 fans now, that way i don't have to spin em so fast so they're quieter.
They're just standard PC fans, so cost...
That's exactly what i have done.
As Sam says you do loose a fair bit of water, i'm losing around 6L a week in my 120L tank.
But even in the...
Not really the 2026 flows a lot more than the 2322.
I suppose it would be possible to cut more slits but the problem i found was not really the...
Glad to hear it's sorted Terry.
Just wanted to add that running your 2026 flat out shouldn't cause any problems.
My tanks half the size as yours...
I missed this thread sorry :oops:

Not had any problems with then uprooting me plants, but my substrate is 2" to 3" deep and the plants are deeply planted....
Re: farmer / cider goes together
Hey at last something i can give advise about :D
Actually George is Î“Î¹ÏŽÏÎ³Î¿Ï‚ in Greek
Ok i'll look around for some AS then.
Just to confirm by Aqua Soil we're talking the ADA Aqua soil right?
I'll go with the offered advice and leave it for now.
Like you say shipping is a pain in the blahblahblahblah for such heavy stuff, there are...
Ohhh i knew there was summet i wanted to ask.
So i'll be stopping by the LFS in the morrow (chant, must not buy more fish, must not buy more...
Great links and advice again ceg thanks mate.
That aquaristikshop looks fantastic, really fell for the Aqua Medic stuff.
I'll place an order next...
Aye that's what i thought, but i'm not gonna persuade them to sell me something :lol:
Me Mrs says there's a FE shop near where she works, so...
Looks like that's the only option left Sam.
Just heard back from Lunapet, they refuse to send a order out to Greece :?:
I understand if they...
Oddly enough mate my dreams don't usually involve water filters.
They usually contain things like, Monica Bellucci, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, 500...
Thanks for the recommendation Sam :)
Looks exactly the same kit as the Aquamas one.
Pretty sure i'll order that one, i'll bang em out an email...
Well i'm now looking to buy a CO2 setup.
I really like the look of the Aquamas kit, but as i don't speak any German that's all i can like :(...
Mine was a bit of a crap pic, here's a better one:
I've got 4 Melanotaenia praecox 2 male 2 female.
Really active fish, they chase each other round the tank at warp speed...
Aye as TDI said that don't apply to me as i'm in Greece :(
I'm gonna start looking around every time i go to the beech for driftwood and/or...
Any updates James?

Aye i know where ya coming from.
I was worried about circulation as well, i did a bit of a test at feeding time with some shrimp eggs, they did...
Managed to find time to chop up and get the other wood to fit.
It's still floating just off the substrate so the position...
Great tip thanks :)
I find it really odd how it progressed from being an environment that i believed was healthy and comfortable for the fish.
The ship is under the tank in the cabinet if your interested? :wink: :lol:
Bit of a journey in 3 months.
As i guess everybody here i wish i knew then what i know now.
I also wish i'd done more homework and reading up as...
Bought a Eheim 2026 external filter, couldn't resist a few Albino Corydoras, i know i'm overstocked now, but the fish seem very healthy...
Removed the sunken ship :)
Still a couple of fake plants in there though :(
Few more fish and plants, got sooooo pissed off with the background i removed it and painted it black.
Few Corydoras and Halequin Rasboaras added, as were a few more real plant and a sand substrate (on top of the gravel) the Goldfish went...
4 days later a Goldfish found it's way into the tank along with a couple of REAL plants and terrible background that wouldn't stick....
Well i've been asking advice for a while now and recieved some great answers, so i thought it about time i showed you guys what me tank looked...
That was bloody quick :o
Not sure how they did it, but my order was sent by AE on Monday and it arrived today :o
I've lived here for 9 years and...

Stuff usually takes around a week to get here from the UK, i'll let you...
I really don't like ordering outside the EU as any time i do i inevitably up up spending hours in the Greek customs offices.
There's no end of useful stuff on t'net forums especially.
Problem is though generally you have to wade through 75% of the crap before you start...
Phew close call there then.
I was about to order some on-line *gulp*
I think i'll bite the bullet and order a lily pipe set from AE instead....
Yet again ceg i really appreciate your help thanks :)
For something that seemed so simple when i bought my tank, it's turned into a whole new...
It's mainly the inlet i want rid of the spray bar is pretty much out of sight.
I see they do a pair on the Aquatic Magic store,...
Only been into this hobby for 2 months so still learning.
I have a 120L tank with:
Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Mi Oya"
Dunno about the 208 Johhny, but i've got a 2060 and Hydo 200w in-line heater on my 120L.
At the moment i'm running both this and my crap internal...
Welcome to my world :)
Luckily there's been no bad earthquakes since i've been living here, a few tremors but nothing bad.
It's a bit weird...
No need to apologise mate, that's a great find by anyones standards.
You've also given me the idea of nipping around Athens tomorrow and seeing...
Nice find :)
Â£75 minimum is a bit of a downer though, they only do minimum 5m lengths as well, that'd be some shipping bill ;)
But if anyone...
Bit of an update.
Collected my new filter yesterday Eheim 2026, after a bit of faffing about trimming my canopy i got it fitted.
Boy it's only...
Gotta say from the pics i love that background.
But if it was causing problems then the tanks environment has to come first.
Just out of...
Fantastic guys thanks :)
Problem is me belly's THAT big it pushes me trousers down :lol:
Me new filter came today it's a Eheim 2026, also...
My main concern was the valve system snapping/shearing if knocked or if the bottle fell over rather than the bottle integrity.
I really appreciate...
Nahhhhhhhhhh the sunken ship is for sale if your interested :lol:
I'll ask around for CO2 tanks, my mate has is own custom exhaust...
Forgot to add my ferts sorry.
5ml of Kent Fresh Water Plant
5ml of Kent Pro Plant
Both once a week.
I have a few questions geared mainly around CO2, so i thought it would be easier just to stick em in this 1 thread.
I'll try to include all the...
Really interesting idea.
Bit to much of a dramatic alteration for me though :o
Looking fantastic alexandre.
I've just started this hobby and i'm in Athens, what do you do in the summer mate to keep your tank cool?
Not sure what to do for the best now.
I think i'll leave them in for a while but keep an eye on my plants and the quantity of the little...
Bloody hell i never realised there where soooooooooo many snails :o
So done some reading up, closest i could find is a Physid Snail.
Last week i notice an extremely small snail in my tank and thought nothing of it.
Whilst carrying out some pruning today i came across 3 larger...
Fantastic news then thanks guys :)
You know what question comes next though :wink:
What online plant shops do you guys recommend?

The sad thing is i've even tried payong...
As you can see i am living in Athens Greece.
I've done a tour around all the fish shops i can find in Athens and found 1 which stands clear as...
Be nice to see the different liliy pipes/spray bars etc people are using.
Come on show us your lily pipes :)
Â£60 :o *gulp*
Good job i asked before handing over me cash then thanks guys.
I was lead to believe that the lily pipes circulated water better than the...
I am expecting my Eheim 2026 early next week and am wondering if it's worth buying a lily pipe?
If so is it worth just buying the...
