I’d echo what others have said. Seriously listen to the advice.
your tank will be big enough for a single shoal of small Tetra, maybe 20.
that sounds spot on.
I need to attach it to another one, it can work well in 3 places on to the main bit. Should ask my better half to hold it really. But I’m not that...
Haha I wish!
I need a hand as to where the final piece of wood needs attaching. As we are on lockdown my bestie @Geoffrey Rea can’t come round....
Would be good to move the glassware to the front, diffuser opposite, still at the front.
skim at back pointing towards the glassware.
I cannot upload a screen shot from my iPad as it says file too large. Might be just me though......!
Spotless water have an outlet in Bristol if that is any good?
@Geoffrey Rea has used one, it is very good,...
I’ll come! Could do with a good makeover! :)
You can glam up Tim and get your nails done whilst you are there!
Clean out your filter! :)
Won’t be long I think.....!
I now kinda know how people in sunnier climbs get a warning that a tornado storm is coming. It’s really weird and not...
Why not both filter ps and inlets at one end?
I think that could work well.
Twinstar 600S will be fantastic! :)
Oase Biomaster 250 will be fine. :)
Twinstar 600S will be brilliant, or if you are feeling flush the ADA new AquaSky RGB for lights that will sit...
Even if you don’t watch George, watch this. It’s bloody good!
Would also look cool with a bunch of twigs fanning out from behind.
Have a butchers if there are any dried oak ones still...
You need one of these....
Are you using co2?
Are you sure it fitted easily?
usually the controller has a 2.1mm pin and you need an adaptor to fit it to 2.5mm for the 600S.
This is a good one!
He’ll do a brilliant job! :)
it’s amazing what massive co2, o2 and a million par can do!
Hurry up Geoff. I’m starving.
I’ll have one of your strawberries and pretend I’m watching Wimbledon!
My stepdad used to grow the best...
This is awesome :)
Shouldn’t need to.

They are nice.
Also look at the Fluval flex.
also oase style line. I’m unsure the smallest size they come in though!
Personally I wouldn’t go with the 900E.
You are not gonna stretch the legs over the length. You’ll also struggle growing growing a carpet with...
Most manufacturers have a small overhand at the front nowadays, to give the impression of the tank floating.
your overhang is all round. I’d be...
Guess the shop was busy, leave a message and the shop will call back.
Plants will be fine for a night. Just keep them in a cool room. Any...
What are the dimensions of your tank? Seems a large litre for 900 light.
Looks like normal din477, fire extinguisher or proper bottle fitting?
What is your budget?
There are simply so many strands
I wish it was more like the reef scene. It’ll push the high end manufacturers even further, bring prices down...
shop around, have a look at uswitch comparison website or money saving expert, see if it is worth moving.
I used to have a...
Compare some prices jay, see if it’s worth moving companies. we were with eon and saved quite a bit when we swapped.
Hardscape too far back is the most common ‘error’, even when you read high end competition judges comments. It comes up time and again.
will look even better if you move the wood forward.p quite a bit.
it will give you more room for planting at the back and will add depth....
We changed suppliers for the 1st time ever last year.
went on the ‘uswitch’ comparison website. Saved quite a bit and Couldn’t have been easier....
It’ll get clogged really quickly in the prefilter. Instead pop it in the 2nd from last tray (the one under the orange final sponge).
I’ll echo everything that alto has said.
- more plants - fast growing stems, floating ones as well. Just pack it. Instead of buying potions, buy...
Thinking about going into my local cycling shop, there are tonnes of bikes at £2,000 +, a few at £10,000.
Now it is relative, I would call £2,000...
a few thoughts -
I think the demand will always be there and the products are beyond just about all diy or budget ones.
I liken it to any...
sorry to hear about your work. Hopefully it won’t last too long, and when it gets back you’ll be busier than ever.
That’s a shame.
I know it ramps up and down. Can you control the general intensity also?
I’m not eating anything based on something that Geoffers should really have shown to a clinic! :lol:
yes, soil looking a little flat I think, it’ll taste nice though! :lol:
Nice @Siege may be getting a sourdough culture going again soon if you fancy a different loaf occasionally.
As for the tom’s and peppers...
Come and see. Once you’ve seen it you’ll forget about controllability :)
similar price range, consider the Life Aqua Maxlite, no ramp up/down but...
Just looked at your photo again. I’ve seen those sprayers somewhere before......! :lol:
Nice. I’m on the bread line so can you pop round some tomatoes and a bit of basil when you get chance. Hold the courgettes, not too keen on them! :)
don’t know if you’ve seen this video but you can see the kessil shimmer at 11.44.
ignore the colour rendition on all the lights, the...
I donot know 100% but have experience of BGA occurring in bare soil. I think mainly due to no roots feeding oxygen.
but yes it makes sense that...
I talk to a lot of pond guys who also have aquariums. They have used them or similar for years and sear by them.
personally I prefer seachem...
Tank looking good. Love the reds!
I’ll order some of the smart power bars. Cheers for the review :)
I agree with Jay. Move the soil back to give you a slope. This will create more depth.
you’ll need more stones in the beach area. A couple...
Better than the original. Love or hate U2 this is awesome. It just builds!
You missed off the ADA sticker and the price tag!
Whole suit in a silver colour, pinsettes for hands. Perhaps a wabi kusa stuck on the top...
Put a bin bag on your head, stay outside and look through the window. You’ll be fine then.......!
They cancelled it yet? #coronavirus
Yes 150 or 300. If you are willing to spend the extra perhaps the 300 and fit a spin glass outlet on it as Ed suggests if you needed to for say a...
Do you have to drill the tank to do that?
I’ll put a new tank on order for you.......! :lol::lol::lol:
Are you gassing off too much co2, therefore it’s fluctuating with so much surface ripple?
just a thought!
Be careful the powerheads/wavemakers are not creating too much of a pointy sharp flow.
Given the small amount of media that can fit in the Juwel...
Thanks, the main stone and I think another one or 2 are from this scape (the remainder have been reused already).
I bought a couple of smaller...
Bit of a follow up from Ryan’s tank journal.
does anyone use these. If so what should I be looking for when buying one (I want 3).
Have you got any pictures of a tank as an example?
can you give a breakdown of the lighting, co2, filtration etc?
With those, if the wifi goes off or it loses connection, is there a danger of saying the co2 not coming on for example. Or does the programmed...
Not the greatest hardscape in the world but I am pleased with it. I wasn’t keen on doing a journal, but a couple of benefits I’ve...
Finally got round to starting a new hardscape in my AS 600. Tim persuaded my to set up a journal.

Defo spotless water. Just checked and they have one in Birmingham.
If they are close I wouldn’t even bother trying...
Well due to popular demand (maybe not!), thought I’d update this.

Bacterial bloom from the wood maybe?

from the right it reminds me of the spider in lord of the rings trying to catch the hobbits! :thumbup::)
I should have taken my socks off, can count better then! :lol:
Won’t the rams dig up the soil?
I used to keep them and they were like rabbits in more than one way! :lol:

Thanks for the reply.
You have a long light period even for an established tank. More so for a new tank.
At low light levels plants won’t be able...
You. Should be good after a clean. It is normally the top orange foam that gets clogged and slows down flow. Open it and see what you think.
I think I’ve said it a few times!
I use the oase 600 2nd generation and eheim pro4 600. Both are rated at 1250 l/ph.
both have the exact same...
Can I ask why would you have a softened tap waster outside for washing cars?
Don’t they add salt which is bad for cars, hence you buy car shampoo...
A free thoughts.
- your tank is just over 200L plus sump?
- temp should be 22-23 degrees C.
- what is your light regime. With a new tank and...
Best in tank diffuser on the market imo is the AquaRio/Twinstar one....
A few thoughts/questions.
- looks like mainly too higher light compared to lack of co2. When not using co2 you need to find the balance.
Just seen your picture, yes a good carpet and moss prune is in order! :)
you can cut the longer pinnatafida stems off. It’ll encourage shorter...
