Ive got an 550D and its a great body, you only get a few extra features on the 600D, which for me didn't justify the extra cash. Got it at a good...
Yep, our cats lov'em! We used to have a hampster that was partical to them as well!
Yep I used them for years, only switched to an inline diffuser so get more kit out of the tank. I was running a nano diffuser on my 250lt as...
I've used one from AquaticMagic, its the one in my DIY disposable co2 guide. Seemed to work ok at the time....
Ive had two lunapet regs and both were excellent, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
How big is the tank? You might not need a 2kg FE is my thinking.
If money is really tight, do away with the solenoid, running co2 24/7 hasn't...
2 months seems about right. Have you tried submerging the lot in a bucket of water to check for bubbles? It shouldn't damage the reg as this is...
Not using it on an FE but I have got it on a large pub co2 cylinder. You need an adaptor to get it to fit which no one seems to be doing anymore.
Lovely photos, dam you! ;)
A successful trip, enjoyed by all :)
Dam,I missed this!! I would have been well up for this if I could have organised the time off, would have been a nice change from the normal rat...
We're getting the 14:00 Norfolkline ferry on Friday from Dover to Dunkirk and the 16:01 ferry on the way back, all being well.
You're welcome to...
Great start, keep us posted :)
Its a free country, buy from who you want to! :lol: But you do get what you pay for.
Tropica spend a lot of money looking for new plants and...
Aquaessentials used to stock it and aquatics online, Charter House also i think. You're looking for a D&D thread convertor.
There is a convertor that goes from disposable to refillable cylinders (increasingly rare), but not the other way as far as I am aware.
Im gonna move this to the CO2 section as its getting away from buy/sell/swap :)
I've not seen a 1kg FE before, so cant help.
You used to be able to get a convertor to go from disposable cylinders to Fe's, but its becoming...
FE's come in either 2kg size or 5kg size, neither of which is all that small. If you're tight for space it might be worth looking at...
Yeh me too.
Balls, and I could really do with some TPN+!

Looking good matey :)
When do you want me to pop over and get the shrimp?
You can but it's not necessary in my experience. Some poeple like to de-gas the co2 to give the fish a break from it, but healthy plants will be...
Well done Mark, thoroughly deserved
Aquaessentials sell it. The three pots I just got are huge!
I've had several screens come off my regs over the years, but it never seemed to affect the way it worked. One of the needles also stopped...

Love the hardscape, its amazing just how many rocks you can get in a tank that big hey?!
Have a look at

For in-depth reviews.
Yep just the one
Will be fine, you dont need anything else.
Just use a bulb that is for freshwater.
You are right about the older JBL regs not fitting properly. From memory it was necessary to sand down the first few threads on the...
Spot the chinese writing on the bottle ;) To be honest I dont know if that is bromo, it could well be, but as I say better to be safe and get...
I think so, but I'm not sure with those ebay cheapo DC's. Given how long a bottle will last I'd repalce it with 'propoer' bromo to be on the safe...
Yep :) you can even get it with the brom blue added already!

Oh right, fair enough, I wouldnt worry too much about the inside of the diffuser, I never bothered with it and never had a problem as far as I...
I just LOVE tanks with plants coming out the top, they always look so adventerous and make me want to be a fish underneath exploring :)
How do :)
The whole drop checker thing it easy, thats the beauty of it.
Add 4dKH water to the DC.
Add a few drops of brom blue.
Add to tank and wait for...
How are you dechlorinating it? I never found it much for a problem.
Re: Tom's 60P build - I'm back on this!
Oooh er, very swish :)
Your lights are on for quite a long time, I would cut back to 6-8hrs.
Upping the co2 if you are able might also help.
All this said I've...
LFS tend to use the hobby kits as well, so might be worth asking before you get them to do it, I see some are charing for it now as well.
If you mean when should you start to dose - from day one. The plants might not need it but better that they have it available than not.
I doubt our hobby test kits are all that accurate, if the water quality report says lower than 50ppm, I'b believe that over my test kit (whatever...
Have you seen JamesC's thread on bulbs?
You can download the water report for your area from your water company, they have to provide it by law.
I've had this happen, no apparent reason. Just one of those things. I doubt it'll be anything to do with the water param's. 80ppm NO3 isn't all...
Looking great :)
Re: Fluval Studio 900... first video added!
Lovely tank, just lovely :)
Sounds intriguing :)
Give it time :)
If you're using T8's then the best I ever used were the Arcadia freshwater tubes.

Lovely tank, nice healthy plants which is alway sgood to see :)
How do :) welcome to the forum.
Charter house and aquatics online used to do them but I cant even find them in their sites now.
No worries :)
Yeh had two of those regs, excellent bits of kit.
Just dont run the lights on full until the co2 is working, that'll buy you a week easily.
This reg it very good
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CO2-Doppelman ... 2ea52da877
Again that reg doesn't come with a needle valve. The black dial on the side lets you control the pressure in the reg but that wont be fine enough...
None of those regs will work as Argon/co2 ones dont have the same thread size or shape. They also dont have a needle valve.
This would be...
I would be surprised if it created a whirlpool, so I dont think you need to worry there.
I'll add that I had a 1000 filter of theirs and it was...
Love mine, got it running on my marine tank and the easy clean mech cartridge is perfect for what I need. The temp gauge is also really useful.
Last place I saw them was Maidenhead Aquatics in Wheatley, Oxford. Might be worth a call to see if they can get them in? They are normally very...
Looking really good, now comes the fun part of seeing how it all develops :)
Where in London are you? We'll being coming down from Oxford so its a possibility.
Could you give us a code or reference that we could use when booking so that the hotel know we're from the show and give us the correct room rate...
Nice one, cheers for your help. Keep us posted :)
PS - no takers for a seat in my car then?
Cheers for letting us know, I too had thought it was 2 euro's so worht know its more.
JBL do a cone stand, or used to at least. I have also seen people use those water bottle holders you get for bikes, like this....
OK cheers for letting us know. I'll be in touch.
Nice matey :) love thw hardscape.
Fair enough :) in that case I'd go for an inline diffuser, but if you put it on the intake it'll dissolve a lot more co2, as it'll get taken...
Why does it matter how big the bubbles are? As long as you're getting the correct co2 level in the tank, bubble size is almost irrelevant.
Cool, let me know if you need a some stuff taking over, I'm sure I could fit a few bits and pieces in :)
Happy Xmas all :)
Right I see, you dont have to turn the co2 off at night, just elave it running, although I know several people like to anyway :)
I was chatting to OllyNZ the other day about taking a car to Vivarium 2012 and figured I see if anyone else might be interested in...
Jammy sod! Thats the hardscape done and dusted then!
What do you mean by atomiser? Inline or diffuser?
You don't need the ball valve that whats the needle valve is for :)
Haha cool :)
Enough said here I think. You get people who dont care about the health and welfare of their fish on any and every forum, thats just the way some...
Looks the right size to me :)
For the hassle of it, I just buy my 4dKH water, a bottle lasts ages anyway :) you're also going to struiggle to get it accurate enough using home...
Yep should be able to :)
As mentioned, on a 350lt tank you'll soon be wanting refillable co2 cylinders, 600g aint gonna last very long!
The thread size on FE, pub...
Given that many ppople just have the diffucer in the corner of the tank and get good diffusion anyway, I doubt you'll notice the difference...
Or one of these taps
http://www.midlandwaterlife.com/inlineh ... -1185.html
How about the tetratec 600 or even 400? They'd be ok on a 25lt I would think.
How big is the cylinder you'd be using? If it were me I'd go with whichever is cheaper, as unless you're planning to use those tiny co2 cylinders,...
Re: 90x45x45 under the river scape
Love the hardscape! :)
Some lovely photos :)
A few of our sponsours will custom make tanks almost without limit on their dimentions so give them a try or google it :)
