    Aquarium NA 90cm

    That's a really good looking tank Nice, and the prices are very affordable! I'm tempted by one myself, would you recommend them? Did you go for the standard glass or the extra clear in the end? Also, what was the delivery service like, did it take long from ordering it until it arrived?

    Submersible pump for water changes

    I used to use a cheap pond pump I got from the lfs to do water changes which went via a hose pipe out the front door and down the drain. I didn't bother with the filling the bath bit either, just filled the tank straight from the hose pipe and added dechlor as it was filling

    Illegal Fish and LFS'

    Did they though? Do you think the shop has time to investigate the legal status of species every time something new pops up on the importers list? Yes fair enough you could probably expect an experienced aquarist to know they were illegal. But if a fish comes up on an importers list most would...

    Illegal Fish and LFS'

    Is grassing on the store the correct thing to do? The store may have been unaware these fish were illegal in the trade, and assumed that if it came up on an importers list that they were legal to import / sell in the uk?

    Which light fixture is better....

    I disagree, I don't think the ATI is any less reliable or lower quality than Giessemann. I know a lot of people who use the ATI powermodule in the reefing world and they have nothing but high praise for them

    Its plumbed through the floor into a seperate sump room so theres a much larger volume of water not on show, as well as most likely a giant skimmer/phosphate reactor to keep the NO3/PO4 right down

    450d lenses or compatibles

    The best EF-S lens imo is the 17-55mm f/2.8, blows the kit lens out of the water, is a bit pricey tho

    Recomendations for online Camera gear.

    I agree with all the above regarding the 1.8, in terms of what you get for the money you spend, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal on any lens. Don't own it myself but borrowed a friends for a while, image quality is very good :mrgreen:

    Juwel rio 180 filteration

    If you are able to keep up the daily 20% changes on the 180l then you should be ok with the discus I would go with the EX1200 personally, but you can't go wrong with an Eheim either, I'm not a big of the Fluval externals myself however

    Juwel rio 180 filteration

If the discus are the only fish and you do very large and/or very frequent water changes you may just get away with it however. In...
