I recently bought some citric acid for cleaning aquarium equipment i.e. Co2 diffuser.
Just a bit unsure how much to use and how long to soak...
Very nice looking tank and the Tigers certainly seem happy now :)
Very nice, I hope to setup my own Taiwan Bee tank soon :cool:
What type did you start out with, F1 hybrids or just TB's?
I have now, thank you. I have sent them a message :):cool:
Thanks, I have emailed them its likely to be the delivery charge where the sting is.
I have looked at the DO!Aqua at TGM which comes in at just...
No thanks, I haven't got the confidence to build my own.
Many thanks for the replies people :)
I think the likes of NDAquatics will be too pricey for what I want, this tank will only be used as a shrimp...
I am after a standard rimless glass aquarium 24" x 12" x 15" (LxDxH) but I am having trouble finding anywhere that sell just a plain old...
Yes they are extendable, you would need the RGB-60 which is For 60~80cm long tanks.
But the leds are gradually ramping to 100% over the 5 hour period before so still getting plenty of light, I may increase the static period if...
My regime looks like this:
Dawn - 9:00 - 12:00 (white 5%, blue 60%)
Sunrise - 14:00 - 19:00 (white 100%, blue 100%)
Sunset - 20:30 - 21:30 (white...
I have mine on 5% blue overnight, can't see it causing any problems.
Yes more white would equal more intensity. The white and blue leds are adjustable in 5% increments.
You can download the manual here :...
I purchased DP-3 just before Christmas and have set it up as per Jag's guide (many thanks) and all is working fine so far.
I ended up just using...
Many thanks guys :)
I have been keeping Cherry shrimp for over a year now and wan't to setup another tank for another type. I am considering CRS as I think they...
Thats great, many thanks for your help.
Oh and what containers are people using for the mixes?
Do these dosing units need to be at water level or are they OK setup under the tank in the cabinet?
Could you put up a picture of the lights we may be able to identify them?
I have a 2kg setup running on 2 nano tanks using those needle valves and they work really well allowing me to use very fine adjustment.
Mine has 2 guages and I very rarely look at them tbh.
If you really want to spend and upgrade take a look at the complete kits at Co2Art they...
Just over 1.
I usually get around 10 weeks use from these bottles.
The ones I use are 600g but as you say it says 390g on the website?
I have this kit on my Rio 125, I think there was an adapter for this regulator to fit fire extinguishers but is now out of production.
I got a Kessil A160 Tuna Sun :cool:
A pair of Radion Ecotech XR15's would be my first choice or failing that a couple of TMC Aquagro tiles.
Why not go for the Dennerle Scapers LED?
Sorry to hijack thread but I have been using the Tropica 3in1 for a few weeks now and every couple of weeks i find the diffuser empty of water....
Lovely tank would like to see an update, especially interested to know how you are getting on with the Ecotech Radions.
Thank you, hadn't thought of looking there but that's just the job, many thanks :)
I am looking for a rectangular glass rimless/braceless nano tank around the 20L mark.
Had a good look around the web but mostly come up with...
As above the Fluval FX5/6 outlet : https://uk.hagen.com/Aquatic/Replacement-Parts/A20226
Just a quick update, the UV chamber on my filter has been leaking and killed the UV unit :(
Perfect excuse for me to upgrade to an FX6 :thumbup:
I have a 305 on one of my tanks, you can slow it down to a trickle if you wish.
Yes its overkill, but yes you could use it and reduce flow using shut off valve.
Had trouble with mine, ended up using plumbers wrench to open it up.
I made my own led light unit and have had similar problems.
In my case the unit was getting damp and individual leds were failing the result was...
You could try rubbing seal with some Vaseline might improve the seal.
I replaced my Aquagro with a Fluval diffuser which seems to be more efficient.
It just appears to be a filler, heres a better pic:
Do you mean this?
Can't really argue with the value, for £72 at the moment its a bargain.
What fitting did you use to make your spraybar Bertie?
Just received my APS 2000EF+ today and have just finished setting it up.
Well impressed with the media capacity & flow, mine is silent.
I have one of these JBL Aqua In-Out Water Changing Set at zooplus which I found very useful for water changes for my Tangs but now I only have...
Could you use the holes as inlets for external filters?
My Rio 125l uses around 600g every 8 weeks at just over 1 bps
Take a look at Tropical Fish Finder Tropical Fish Finder.co.uk - The ultimate UK fish keeping resource for all types of tropical and marine fish,...
Your Rio 125 looks great Lee, any updates? :)
Just noticed the Halfords 600g is £16.99 & the 390g is £13.99.
The SIP cylinders from Halfords are £13.99, think I will stick to these for my Rio 125 as they last about 10-12 weeks, but will look into a FE...
This thread has confused me, but that's not too difficult :confused:
Have you found a solution yet?
Meanwhile I will continue to use welding...
Took a quick pic of mine tonight
Latest pic, after vallis almost disappearing on me its suddenly taking over the tank, definitely a jungle now :joyful:
Many thanks for your help. :)
I think I will go with a LPC-60-1050 for 10 cool white XT-E and an APC-16-700 for 4 warm white XT-E
Buenos Aires Tetra are quite striking and get to a max of 4", Emperor Tetra's are also nice but only get to around 2", or theres the Bloodfin...
Would this be suitable? Mean Well ELN-60-48D dimmable LED power supply driver - NEW | eBay
or is there anything a bit cheaper that would do?...
I plan to use 12x Cree XLamp XT-E LED 5W (cool white) over my D&D 24g Nano cube, how do I work out which driver I will need?
These are lovely fish for the planted tank, I bought a group of 10 after reading George's excellent jungle aquarium feature.
After a bit of hunting I found this link ;) not had chance to try it out yet....
Nice looking calc unfortunately link not working.
Has anyone got a copy or link please?
Bit of an update, all plant doing very well except the Vallis Nana which is more than likely due to me using easycarbo.
So may replace with...
Tried my drop checker 3 times with fluid from Tankscape and turned clear each time so today tried again but also added a couple of drops of PH...
Did you get to the bottom of this, as I am having the same issue?
George, I really love this setup and this inspired me to make my own Jungle scape.
Do you have any hi res images of this tank? would love to set...
4th day and still no sign of any ammonia, can only assume my filter is coping with it ok.
Plants are picking up nicely and fish seem...

First my plant delivery from TGM
FTS just after planting, everything looks a bit untidy,...
Welcome to the forum, as you will have noticed there is a wealth of info here and plenty of friendly folk to help you along. :thumbup:
Anyone keep these? if so how do they get on with other fish?
Very tempted to have a shoal of chilli's myself 8)
Don't worry I will be testing daily, won't let my fishes suffer.
That looks really neat, some weeping moss would look good.
They were in a 60l tank that is now shut down. I didn't have room to keep them both running. :(
Well everything arrived today so it was time to get my hands wet :D
Used 13 litres of TMC Nutrasoil brown, wish I had got the black now but the...
I also have the TMC substrate :thumbup:
How did you dose this fert? I am thinking of 2ml per day, my tank holds 100l after displacement.
Thats what I was hoping, just didn't know if the substrate would leach more ammonia than the filter could cope with.
Re: New centre piece fish
Shame the seller didn't know how to use a tape measure ;)
Worked out well in the end then, have you found another?
Wow this is amazing :o
Have you got any pics of the CPD's in this tank?
I have been feeding my Tropheus on spirulina from TA Aquaculture for over 3 yrs and it is very good quality and always excellent service from Tim....
Re: New centre piece fish
That was a bargain.
Is it setup yet?
African Butterfly Fish are predators and shouldn't really be kept with fish under 2".
My tank arrived today and I have already built cabinet, leak tested tank & fitted reflectors to the T5's.
Just waiting on substrate (TMC...
Re: 120 x 55 x 55cm planted... Home alone
Stunning tank and fantastic pics 8)
Anyone using TMC Nutrafeed, and if so how are you getting on?
Re: Fluval Studio 900. 'Coastal Erosion' Journal.
This should be very impressive, look forward to updates.
Beautiful tank you have there, well done 8)
The Cory is a Julii.
I am still considering all options and I am in email conversation with both TGM and Aqua essentials.
Only issue with AE's packs is they don't...
