The 205 is sufficient for my 60L but I want more flow - see pic. I plan on tearing down and doing a new scape as lots of my HC has died off. Also I hate the valve setup on the Fluval, they are fixed and dont allow any adjustment in the direction of the pipework.

From the start I used very high co2 and easy carbo + 50% wc every day for the first 2 weeks, I was amazed how quick this has filled out. I think with the right...
I recently setup my new 60x30x35 opti with AS Amazonia, problem is the water is really yellow.
I know this is normal but I have been doing 50% Wc's for the last 7 days and its still yellow.... :x
I have 3 Rhinox 1000 diffusors that I use with a D-D kit [on rotation], the problem is that after cleaning with bleach the diffusors seem to clog up after 2 days use? is this normal?
After a soak in bleach they produce a lovely mist of fine bubbles but this only lasts 2 days max. Also the...
I get a fair bit of limescale buildup around the top edge of my tanks at the waterline. Anybody got any tips on removing this?
