Twinstar v Chichiros RGB
Very happy with mine.
They are both being run from FEs.
Agreed, it would look better but it's in the "office". I use the term loosely! Just haven't the time to make a new cabinet.
It does take a little while. Are you thinking leak? I have thought about that. Does the diffuser hold back a certain amount of pressure or does it...
The co2 supermarket basic bazooka.
I have a cabinet made for a 30" x12" aquarium. Rather than waste the cabinet I would like to use it for a 400x400x400mm cube. My question is,...
Hi, I have 2 Co2 supermarket standard set-ups. One hasn't missed a beat since I set it up. The other one, I just cannot get to give a steady...
I used the stuff they sell for greenhouse shading...basically nylon mesh.
http://www.aquariumgardens.co.uk/ I'll second, third or fourth AG, and not far from the A1 at Huntingdon. NOT open weekends, though.
You are right, it does need time to build up steam!
No mate one of them bazooka jobbies.
Just having issues with one of my Co2 supermarket regs. If I get it set up today at xyz bubbles per minute, when it switches on tomorrow it's...
Many thanks, all.
Now that I didn't know!
If you are doing frequent water changes, is carbon still required as a filter media?
Just came across this place http://www.ledkia.com/uk/.
May be of interest.
Sorry to ask if this has been done before but.......
I now have a nice led bar which can be used with blue leds only, which is quite nice in the...
Thanks all, some good info as usual.
Does anyone use these type of changers? I would be a bit concerned about variations in water temperature. Or maybe I just have a crap boiler.
It's taken me about 40 years and 5 attempts to get anywhere...........don't give up....you look pretty close to me.

Delighted to find it as it's only a...
Little bit of the aquarium not touching down. It's a 60x40x40 cm. Do you think it would be safe?
Edit; this top is fully supported...

Thanks, Tim. Fingers crossed....!!!!
Hi all. Good to be back, having one last go!
At last I seem to be having some success ( running out of time now lol). I have a bucketful of pond...
I think they are dead and you've placed them on a rock in the garden.
Different bluebell wood mate, but originally from a brewing town about 50 miles down the A1.....
Well, if it sat there and if a little was absorbed, it's all going to help, I guess?
I ain't got no bubbles at all as I've gone back to low tech!!!
It's just that I worked with CO2 in one way or another for a number...
Seeing as CO2 is heavier than air, would it be a good idea to leave a small amount of space above the waterline so any CO2 released could sit on...
Whoa, some amazing pics there!
Rabbit droppings and nails!!!!
I hadn't thought of either!!!!!
Any secrets of your success you'd like to share? :)
It amazed me how much water disappears now it's got cooler.
Lovely job :thumbup:
I would tend to agree with all that.
I've got a good ripple on the surface now, about 1.5 wpg T5s, so fingers crossed!
So, after failing miserably with high tech, it's back to the drawing board and low tech!
My question is this;
I have read about CO2 being...
Best of luck to you!
There is loads of info on here as I'm sure you know.
Any specific questions may get a quicker response, eg, how do you grow...
What's your budget?
Doing searches on forums does not always yield results, especially when you need to search for a term, such as "why are my fish transvestites?"...
I'm not sure I have got anything better to do with my time, and although I've made almost 3,000 posts on UKAPS, I've basically said the same thing...
It's the same checker with the same fluid on the same co2 bottle and so on...!!
Just don't know what happened but I will be home today to monitor...
No I didn't check for nitrates. To be honest I can't really think why they should have rocketed in one tank?
I banged a few litres...
Would he get covered in algae?
Did my usual 50% w/c today.
I also changed my light timers to 90 mins earlier.
Co2 on 1500
Lights on 1730
I use 2 layers just to be on the safe side :)
I use the white foam underlay used for laminate flooring.
My main point was that that programme , like a lot of tv today is a lot of bugger all. Very little happens and what does is replayed over and over...
The fish dropping was about Wilson who seemed to make a habit of it...too busy showing off.
I know a couple of guys who knew him.....and how other...
All those points are a matter of opinion.
There aren't too many in uk waters which may contribute to my low success rate.
I have, however, caught beautiful 8oz wild brownies in tiny lochs...
I bloody hate him and river monsters.
A series of programmes full of bugger all.
Also hate Wilson, Hayes, Chris bloody Sandford and all the rest...
Love that first pic.
Great stuff, thanks for that.
So, the CO2 inlet needs to be not to far down the tube for the bubble to be swept away and not too near the top so...
I haven't tried it but I would very much doubt it.
Dumb question, but how exactly do these CO2 diffusers work?
I assume a pocket of gas builds up in the top of the tube, is this then just absorbed...
Just found this but it's ****** america!!!!
Clear PVC Pipe and Fittings - Alsco Industrial Products
A byproduct of Dr Quatermass............
Not the dissolvable type ;)
I use flouro carbon which does just what it claims......ie, virtually invisible.
I seem to keep mine better in a bucket than in the aquarium........................
Certainly interesting reading on the DIY in line reactors. They seem to make a massive difference to the amount of CO2 actually absorbed.
Yes, I think you may be right...it seems close...but not close enough!
That Dennerle looks nice.
But...you cannot change the output pressure if you ever need to.
I had a email conversation with the guy at CO2 supermarket who told me they...
Canons have the "live view" feature which means you can look at the picture you are going to take on the full screen at the back. As you then...
If you get a DSLR you can expand as time goes by, as dosh allows, and as you want to try new things (which you may well do).
You can be much more...
Would be 2 weeks max I guess.
Wouldn't want to leave them that long, especially the manic zebras...!
Nonsense, thank you for your input.
Tablets may be the answer.
It's for when I'm away.
Jetting around the world at the taxpayers expense, visiting my daughter in New York, that kind of thing......
I want something reliable, thank you......
Any recommendations, please?

I've bought 2 regs, one off the for sale section on here (tmc v2) and a CO2 supermarket one.
Neither of the buggers will adjust :mad:
Everybody's a bloody master joiner these days.......;)
Just ordered some CO2 tubing....
I have recently "rescaped" (in the loosest sense of the word) for this very reason.
I have a side mounted spraybar and the diffuser ( plastic from...
Upped the period to 8 hours and things are looking much better!
it could have been worse. Lost 3 fish I think and rescued 6 from the filter.
If you decide to remove the filter inlet guard so you can place your CO2 diffuser right under the inlet, when you later decide to move the...
Apparently, they can't.
Can these regs be adjusted to increase/decrease the output pressure?
No mate, the flow rate is fine.
It's hard to say whats going on inside the filter cos you can't see, of course, but I think it's very possible...
No, I don't get fine bubbles at all.
I haven't soaked them but I do up the pressure steadily.
Due to the fact that I cannot seem to get a nice fine mist from any of my diffusers, I placed them under my Tetratec filter intakes. When I...
I was just gonna say that........
I'm no expert but I'm sure I have read that they need to be put on separately.

I would say that seeing as chlorine values can vary, it would be safer to use a treatment product.
Many thanks all. :thumbup:
.....survive with the pump turned off?
I'm thinking of doing a rescape and if possible will be able to just disconnect the filter. It's the...
