I think where regs are concerned it's better to just by a decent one from either co2 art or co2 supermarket then you don't need to worry about it.I had cheap ones in the past and gave me nothing but problems.
Full pub bottle.I didnt watch it for very long it was set over 40 bar i think.i will leave it of until this weekend and i will be able to watch it all day .I just dont understand why the co2 was coming out so quickly and emptied the water from the bubble counter.Im thinking i had the pressure to...
I set up my brand new co2 system paid alot of money for the reg.I had it going nicely at a couple of bubbles a second to start with got home and the drop checker was yellow and the bubble counter was screaming i mean loads of bubbles a second why would this happen after i set it up nicely.The...

I've had planted tanks in the past and want to set up another.My only problem is my discus I really don't want the ammonia spike associated with soil substrates so I want to use straight nordic gravel.Would this work or can you suggest anything I can put under the gravel that won't cause bad...

I have bought a hob filter for my nano at the moment i diffuse co2 with a small power head.Is there any reason i cant install power head in the hob and just carry on as im doing,my reason for this is to try keep things out of the tank
Hello.I after ideas for back ground plants for my nano tank ideally something with a bit of colour.it's high light injected co2.something sturdy I mean something I can trim without worrying about it going everywhere like cabomba.
This morning popped to local Swedish store and bought a lamp and bulb for my nano tank
This bulb was the only one i could find with the highest colour spectrum.It is...
Lidl are selling security lights at the moment led 20 watts with a censor and 6500k is there any reason I can't remove censor and use the light over my nano .
There called livarno lux .I don't know how to copy and paste on my phone haha
I love the look of this tank and would like to try do something like it in a nano can you id the plants for me.I believe one of them is a small species of java fern.
Thank u both.all bulbs are 6500k .I thought because spot light was rated as 23 watt but equivalent to 100 watt it would be twice as powerful as the 2 24 watt bulbs in the boyu.is that wrong then.
Hello Folks I have bought a 23 watt 6500k cfl spotlight to replace the 2 24 watt bulbs on my boyu 550 aquarium I have wired up the cfl and even though it is supposed to be the same as an 100 watt bulb it doesn't seem as bright as my original bulbs.am I worrying about nothing
hello folks i have an old aquamedic reg it doesnt have enough pressure to use a diffuser can i use it with a co2 ladder or should i just buy a new reg,if yes do you have any recommendations for a decent cheapy one please
Hello,thank you,i have a co2 set up already which im not using as didnt think it was worth it on a low light tank,the tank is a boyu tl 550 which is 35 gallons and has 2 24 watt daylight bulbs in the lid ,should i use co2 on a low light tank
I have a planted fluval flora nano tank,because i will be doing 50% water changes every week and cant pre heat the water i was thinking about White Cloud Minnows.The filter is an ehiem ecco pro 300.Would i be ok to keep them in such a small tank.If not do you know of any shrimp that will live in...
Sorry one more question,when ever i go into local b&q i always look for daylights bulbs which they never have.They mainly have warm white bulbs with 3000k on them are these ok to use on planted aquariums,so if i understand a bulb is a bulb and plants will grow no matter what bulbs is used.
Hello folks i started cycling my aquarium about a month ago and it is taking ages to cycle,i still have a small trace of nitrite and the ammonia is going through the roof any idea on how long this is going to take.The tank is a fluval roma 125 and the filter is a eheim 2229 wet and dry filter,I...
