I'm sure this question is probably asked on a daily basis, but some help would be appreciated. I have a brown algae beginning to cover the leaves on my plants. I'm running a Rio180 with an additional internal filter and 2 Hagen CO2 diffusers with each canister containing a home made...
CO2 is currently just using a homemade mix with a Hagen CO2 diffuser. The drop checker is blue, but I have a second unit going in today or tomorrow which will hopefully help. I have the standard Juwel filter, but also a Fluval 2 for additional circulation (I'm not a wealthy man, so it's a...
I've got a Rio 125 sitting up stairs that I'm gonna work on after Christmas. I think I'll go for something a little simpler. Don't know what yet, but I fancy rocks and HC Cuba or something. Don't really know yet.
I don't know if this should be in CO2 questions, but feel free to move it if it should. :shifty:
I have a drop checker in my planted tank and I was wondering, is it normal for a film of scum to develop on the waters surface inside the bell of the drop checker?
I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I have some JBL Ferropol liquid fertilizer, and I can't for the life of me remember how often I'm supposed to add it to the tank. I think it's weekly, but don't want to start pouring it in willy-nilly :oops:
Help please :wave:
Right, I'm with you. I'm gonna order one, get it up and running (with an air pump running on a timmer set to the opposite of the light) then keep an eye on it using the drop checker and then see if I need a 2nd one.
Um, the little blue taps that you can use to control the flow. Can't think what else they'd be called. :idea: Like this - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170380850513&ssPageName=STRK:MEBDIX:IT
AAARRRGGGHHH!!! After literally hours of trying different formulas, checking for leaks, replacing bottle top with new silicone sealer (enough to seal around 400 fish tanks I'd say), it turns out the air taps ALL leak. I have 3, 1 on each bottle and 1 to control the over all out put, and they...
HHMMMM, I think the guy in the shop may have got this one wrong, although he did know it was for a fish tank and he did seem like he knew about it. This morning still nothing. The brown foam is now more of a white foam. I presume these DIY CO mixtures produce enough pressure to pass through...
Need a bit of help again please. I have this morning filled my Rio 180 up. It currently just contains the substrate. The decor is going in tomorrow when I'll partial empty and then re-fill the tank (I had to check it was water tight and the heater and filter work, which they do...
This is my first proper post on the forum. First I like to say thanks for the amazing advice you can find on here. Secondly, I'm about to set up my first real attempt at a planted aquarium. I'm using a Juwel Rio 180 and have spent the last few weeks researching What, How, Where...
I joined just a few days ago and can't believe the amount of useful information on the site. I was a passionate fish keeper in the past, but have been out of the hobby for nearly 15 years. I recently purchased a Rio 180 which is sitting in my lounge bone dry. I have decided it's...
