    Lone fish gasping & can't swim.

    I fully understand what you're saying Andre. Sure my London tap water is never constant in it's chemistry. Also, the idea of adding near half a tank of cold chlorinated water into a tank of wild Amazonian fish (green neons, checkerboards and ottos) use to give me some concern, but as I said...

    Lone fish gasping & can't swim.

    Hi all. Bad news for me. Whilst performing a water change yesterday, filters off, hose straight from tap into the tank, dechlorinator poured in as the tank is filling up. Same as every week for the past 2 years of fish keeping. As it was filling up I noticed that one of my male checkerboard...

    Ian's 80cm (Chocolate gourami!)

    Love the idea of an Xmas moss carpet. Shrimp will love that! :) Those choc gourami's are stunning!! I only run standard London tap water in my tank so think I can only day dream about having them in mine. Hope they keep well in there for you mate.

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    Well I've always attributed sand discolouration to dirty filters and bright light. For this set up, the 2 t5 bulbs are nearly 2 feet off the top of the water surface, only on for 7 hours a day. Also, this sand is a nice natural colour to it. Unipac Fiji.

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    Thanks very much. Yeah I believe I am now. I've added some amazon frogbit on the surface, but I think it's soaking up all the nutrients before anything else has the chance. Is this possible? It is rather lean dosing. Also, I think it's restricting flow as over the last couple of days I've...

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    Still going strong. Everything except algae is growing. Added eleocharis acicularis to both far sides and back middle. Runners after a couple days!! My light is about 2ft off the water surface! Two 4th t5 tubes only. 8 hours a day. Thanks.

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    It's changed a little. Thanks for the sand suggestion, George. I actually have gone for a mass of Fiji sand. Lots of moss. Cut the stems right down also. Was getting lots of BBA on the hardscape so I've purchased a new regulator and raised the lights about 2 foot off the tank surface. This...

    An amazing set up, finished off with a beautiful 'scape. This has really inspired me. Thanks for posting! Also... A magnetic strip for the tools! Seeing that was a true "why didn't I think of that" moment. :)

    Also throwing in half a teaspoon of KPo4 and TRACE. 50% water change twice a week. Not happy with the Unipac Maui sand. Far too bright for this layout I think. May suck it out am stump up for some ADA stuff. What you guys think?

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    Been a little while since my last update. This is how it looks as of tonight. More sand, less light. Got rid of the moss all over the wood as it was just gathering algae. Added some crypts around the vase of the wood and a few moss stones. The stems are growing, but seem to die whenever I trim...

    Been a busy boy today. Got 20mm outer diameter clear acrylic tubing, a heat gun, pipe bender and sand. Created this after plugging the end and blowing. 20mm pipe is bigger than the hose to my filter so I heated the end and stretch it over. So here it is. Not the greatest of lily pipes, but...

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    It only looks like that. The filter outflow is actually aimed at the back glass flowing to the Koralia. So there is constant left to right flow. I did have a spraybar and Koralia all aimed at one end of the tank but Co2 wasn't getting to all of the tank. I've had this configuration in a prvious...

    120cm. Green Neons Fly

    Not too bad mate. But not spotless unfortunately. I was hoping to keep it as just the two stems I have now, but I think I'm gonna have to just throw an absolute ton in there and let them soak up a load of nutrients to help balance it all out. Then I can 'scape how I want it. Got a little bit of...

    Yeah I figured the lighting wasn't close enough for the pearling. But I'd rather keep it where it is an get steady growth than have it lower and have less margin for any errors in co2 or dosing.

    Sharp sand?

    Hey people, Sure i have read about not using sharp sand in an aquarium before, but only if there are sand sifting fauna in the tank (corydoras etc) If it were washed, could it be used in an aquarium as a foreground?

    Dry powders with non EI?

    Lesson learned, thanks Clive. I've just done my weekly 50% W/C and looking at my tank pearling and fish loving the new water, i reckon it wont hurt to take half hour out of my schedule every week for it (my back wont mind). Thanks for the info.
