My tank has been set up since about January. Within a week there was a dark/¹brown stringy growth on the wood. I assumed this would of went away but it has grown a little over the last 4 months. I haven't really had the lights on much as I only managed to put the plants in Tuesday.
I'm hoping to add fish shortly to my tank after planting it this weekend.
I'm thinking of going for a shoal of Chilli Rasboras. The tank is 130 litre with about 25 litre of displacement due to the scape.
I was thinking about 40 should be ok? Any suggestions on if I would need more or...
I'm getting ready to start planting up a new tank very shortly. Previously years ago I used a thin beech dip mixed with water to kill any pests such as snails.
Is there any guides on doing this or any shop bought dips available? This will only be for the removal of snails and the like...
Wondering if anyone can recommend an external reactor?
If not I'm considering a DIY reactor using a external filter booster as the base APS have one for £15 with 16mm inlet and out let. The external filter booster is basicly an empty external filter.
I'm looking for a substrate to go with Seiryu stone. I have my eyes on unipac nyasa sand which is in the picture below.
I'm using tropica soil in raised sections but want to use a sand in the front and lower valley section.
Any suggestions would be great.
So I've decided its time for a planted tank. Had my first planted tank about 12 years ago, more recently set up a small fluval flex which was low tech but thats now just home to some cherry shrimp and the 2 remaining fish from 4/5 years ago.
The new tank is a Aqua One Horizon 130. Not...
Had a little play about with some rocks and wood today.
Let me know you think. Sofa is to the right hand side of the tank which is the main viewing position with a door to the left hand side.
I do plan to possibly add a second tier to the right hand side but not sure.
I'm looking at getting an Aqua Oak tank from MA. The diemensions of the tank itself is 70cm(W) x 32(D) x 50(H) cm.
My only concern is the tank seems very high compared to the depth. I was originally planning a custom built tank and having it 80x40x40. The tank from MA just...
Im thinking about adding co2 to my system. At the moment I dose Neutro T and Neutro liquid CO2. Im fairly happy with the results but thinking about changing a couple of plants and add a carpet of 'monte carlo'
When I add co2 obviously I will need to drop the Neutro co2 but can I continue...
Previously Ive had a 60 litre planted tank and then had a high tech 4ft planted tank about 8 years ago, I then made a switch to a couple of reef tank up until 2-3 years ago when I sold up due to lack of time. I've decided to give a low tech planted tank a try and below are my efforts so far...
First post but I joined over 8 years ago.
When I first signed up I had a 60 litre planted tank then went onto a high tech 4ft planted tank. Since then I've had 2 reef tanks but due to time had to give them up. A couple of week ago I bought myself a nano tank to get my fingers green...
Hi all, first post on here but have looked at the site since it was on Tom Barr's website (didn't sign up on here as i had nothing to say/show).Its been about a year since my last proper planted tank which got scraped.
L = 26inch W = 12inch H = 13 inch
About 14 Uk Gallons / 60 Litres...
