thank you for this
That's outrageous (the good kind)I love big fish like that! Stunning. What do you feed something like that?
Are those peacock bass!!! Could you share a couple of videos.
Give the fish the bigger tank and use this one as the only panted....
Good thing is it's still early doors so it's not a chuck and start again.
I looked on your thread and I didn't find what I wanted quick...
Ok so the idea is that is you need A B and C to grow taller. If A and B are in surplus but C is scarce you will still grow but just at a slower...

No way!! Haha really like that. Wonder how long they will last.

I believe it does.
I googled it and found out a few days ago. Seems to do a fair bit.

Adc is unreal!!
Yeah I believe it's ready to rock & roll!
I've just orders 100ml bagged from aqua essentials :)
Nath that bag comes with 200ml of purigen?
They sell 100ml sealed for £10 and I noticed 'the bag' also or £10, me being simple again I guess though?
now I know the ins and out of your filter I guess you do have a little bit of flow to loose haha.
Can not stand floss!!! Just kills the flow.
Welcome to the forum :)
Congratulations on that little layout, looks really good, good plant choice nice stones.
I really like the look...
Oh snap I got 25ml from ebay...DAMNIT!! Oh well only a couple quid
How much would do you guys think for a 30l tank?
Ordered myself some also
What should I expect ...I mean my water is clear with no surface scum so am I wasting money orrrrr?
Apart from looking pretty terrible it MAY be ok.
What compost did you add??
Would it not be a better idea to start again? Or its just a cheap...
Did they give you a list of plants they can get or do they access to the lot?
TGM hands down
If your close to living waters then there
+1 for hightech.
The 305 is gonna be craaazy strong! I love going over the top on flow but I think your going to have the flow turned down quite...
I get this mainly on wood when I start a new tank. Amano shrimp take care of it...aslong as it is the same stuff.
Can we see a pic please.
When are we going to see some pics! Where is the store ?
There really now examples George. We all know how well there lights perform so nice to see the ferts coming along and the substrate.

I guess you could try n buy the old style heating mat/cable used for planted tanks.

Exactly what I thought. Good break down though I really struggle with wording thins like this haha.
I'd consider an RO system to rid me if the...
Does topping up evaporated water not increase The hardness of the water?
Would a surface skimmer attachment on your filter help this?
Would I have much effect on co2 levels?
To keeps things simple
You don't NEED a nutrient rich substrate but it helps I your a little slack or not as experienced with EI
Sounds like your on a tight budget so why not use a cheap substrate as apposed to ADA stuff and use EI to dose the water column Yourll save a ton...
That's the ruddy spirit!!! Hahaha

I'd have thought the fish in the planted tanks are in the bet place in the shop...the pent house if I may be so bold haha :D
Thread going slightly of topic with the mention of MA and fish in there ranks BUT I'm interested as to why this is bad practice?
Ahhh that's a shame mate. Bet you was happy with your purchase, the moss I have is in a bowl when I run it up the tap to clean it out I notice a...
Hello mate, I'm planting my tank later in the week and should have some left over. Only java but its a great underrated moss so your welcome to a...
@antipofish do they do that!!! That would be good as they do 3 for a tenner don't they?
I mean it's going to need replacing a hell of a lot more than a 2kg FE would.
The co2 system sounds a bit wild!! Why not buy reg on ebay and use the fire extinguisher method
Did you sell it via eBay
Do you have any pics of it in your tank to show it didn't harm your aquarium? Does he have photos of his dead fish your...
I'd go with an all in one type deal.
Tanks like the micro habitat are cool, a little small though. Look up the aqua one nano 20 30 or 40
Piece of fish (forum member) had large amounts for sale very cheap.
Contact him :)
Penfield stuff is Nice stuff! Love there stuff.

Looks the part

S8vm....surely a spammer?
Re: How overgrown/thick do you let your stem and other plant
Start an eBay shop jim :D
I think the only problem I see is people that havnt got a spare tank or space to set up another/ reshape existing tank.
If you could go for DIY co2(yeast) I'd say glossostigma, it will have a better chance, I grew mine in. 20l with DIY co2 and it carpeted like a...
