Sorry for the lack of updates! After flooding, the tank took a bit of a back seat since I had to return to university in January. Its been left in...
I've recently bought a second hand CO2 dual stage regulator, solenoid, SMC valve.
I'm currently trying to ascertain whether or not it is...
I used a rotary wire cup brush in an electric drill to 'brush' the paint off.
Just a quick update of the pipes. They're still to be brushed but are all bent and drilled/ grooved and awaiting installation.
Not much to report with the dry start. HC is doing particularly well in some areas,
not so in others. The water in the tank from misting...
The piping is from 'Metals4U', the clamps I got from 'British pipe clamps'.
No your right, the mat doesn't cover 100% of the base of the tank (see photo). This is because the door on the cabinet is full height....
What was I supposed to do? It didn't match my hose reducer! :crazy:
Hi Rebel, this is the thread I read the comment on (you'll have to scroll a bit):...
Hi Rahms, thanks for the brownie points :)
The 12mm pipe has proven great for me. The weight of the fixture initially wants to make the fixture...
So its coming up to two weeks since i began the dry start. The moss seems to
have been doing well overall. It hasn’t attached firmly to...
Thanks very much for the positive feedback guys, I can't wait to see it mature either!
Beat you to it ;)
So I began the dry start. The chosen mosses were Taxiphyllum ‘Spiky’ and
Vesicularia ferriei 'Weeping’. I had more than enough in the...
So the lily pipes and light stand have been made, the lily pipes aren’t in situ yet,
these will be in place after the dry start. The...
Thanks Vanish. Yes the cabinets had a couple of coats of yacht varnish but its still slightly rough. I'm pretty sure it will hold out for 2-3...
Hi Mr. Teapot, inspirational journal,
I was wondering what happened to the tank?
Is it still running on 'autopilot'?
:lol: Thanks Zozo. I'll be using a stainless brush so hopefully I can eliminate cross contamination. I'm now just trying to source some 316 grade...
So having spent the best part of a year and a half contemplating this/ reading
endless journals I thought i’d start a journal for my...
As promised folks, photos of the prototype bend.
All in all it went well, the rigid benders arrived, they're a top not piece of kit. They had...
I've still not got around to resolving this but will be sure to post back how i get on, the higher output SMD strips with automated...
I've been running a low tech tank for a few months now. The lighting was never meant to be permenant as it is intended for a high tech...
Thanks for the pics! I've had a look on your journals and they certainly look the part in the tank! :thumbup:
Consider the spring idea ditched...
Nice! Shame about the crypts but the tank is looking great anyhow!
Thanks for getting back to me.
Great to hear of your experience! I'm actually not creating my own pipes to cut costs though, more just...
I'm looking to make a set of custom stainless lily pipes.
Due to the size of the tank (45x 30 x 27) I'm looking to keep the pipes as...
Figured this was the place to do a test :-)
Great little scape! keep the updates coming!
Cheers chaps :)
Apologies folks :banghead:

I'm looking to set up a FE C02 system and as the title states I am looking to confirm what diffusers are compatible with a 2kg bottle?...
This journal make for a great read over with a few cups of coffee :nailbiting: Three hours later and despite it now being tomorrow I'm in aww......
Hi Ghost, loving the setup!
I was just wondering what moss you used in the tank?
sorry the capacity is actually about 6-7l not 30!
Having mulled over quite a few threads I've decided that for a first planted tank attempt I'm going to try my hand at the low tech...
I'm new to Ukaps and having found it after deciding to set up an aquascape (or at least try to) I've been amazed at the amount of...
