Hi Matthew, It is best if you list the information on your set up advised in the link below. It will help people understand your issue a bit more👍
That's a poor response from Aqua One. I've had 3 of their tanks in the last 10 years but I won't be getting another.
It's a shame I'm no longer in contact with the work mate who also had this problem as I could have got the pictures from him he had on his phone. It may have added a bit of...
Not what I wanted to hear. You are the second person I know who has suffered the same failure in the same area. I have one of these and was thinking of getting rid of it. I think now that decision has been made.
I'm using a Chihiros brain and its on it's second reactor since December. The first one worked well for about two months before I first cleaned it in white vinegar. What alerted me was the appearance of green algae and then I noticed a reduced output from the reactor. The clean appeared to...
Skimmer arrived today. Deliberately didn't remove any scum before fitting. After 10-15 minutes the surface is clear. No additional noise and the extra water flow is a bonus as the provided pump seems a bit weak. That said I've been used to pumps giving 10x turnover on high tech.
Sorry for another surface scum thread. Most of the posts I read about this seem to indicate this being more of a high tech tank problem. I did see this a bit when I ran a high tech tank but not much, since setting up a low tech tank this is rife.
Aquanano 80 (130L) - with stock...
As you got this second hand does it have the correct Aquaone pump with it? It should have the same sump as the Aquanano 80 which I have, in reference to Hoggies post, there is no flow control if you have the same pump as me.
I'm setting up a low tec tank. I was originally going to use soil and gravel as per Tim's tutorial. I'm now thinking about using one of the aquasoils (Tropica or Dennerle etc).
My question is, is the aqusoil enough on its own to sustain the tank (with added ferts) or should I use a...
I think it's an electronics issue too. I've already done what eheim suggest and it makes no difference. If it was s mechanical problem I'd expect the flow to be erratic / low in manual mode and it isn't.
I do have another 2078 pump head that I will fit over the weekend with parts from the...
Many of us here probably started with this:
The mixture here is for a 20 gallon tank but you can just up or downscale the ratios depending on your tank size.
No problem, we've all been there:)
Clive has beaten me too it but I was just about to point you in the direction of this as you are not the first person to question the details:
I've just run the calculator for KNO3, 800ml bottle, 40ml dose and 126 Liters with a result of 30.82g to add to the solution.
I then run it with 126 US gallons and get 116.65g which is what you have in your original table?
That is the case. My 200Mbps connection started slowing in June, it's now at 3Mbps and has been for weeks. I'm told it's a utilisation issue in the area, but they are still signing more people up, and it will be rectified in December.:(
If you are happy with the reply then stick with it. I would just call John Allen aquariums (eheim uk distributor) and question the impeller. All my eheims have had a six blade version so just check the 3 blade one is correct.
It's a tough call. If it were me I'd return it on the basis that it doesn't sound like the seller looks after his kit. We don't know why the fuse blew and how low long has it run with a lashed up fuse and it should never have had a 13A one fitted in the first place? It could be something with...
Even if it says no returns you should contact the seller to say you are not happy. If you can’t resolve it then raise it with eBay, they are good at sorting this kind of thing out. Also, if you payed with PayPal you should be covered.
If this is a pre set reg it should be about 40psi. I don't think the Co2 art pre set regs are adjustable in any way which indicates yours is faulty. That said I've only used their adjustable regs. See if you can message Karol at Co2 art.
Hi Mort, I'd forgotten I could try without the controller:thumbup:. Just connected it up and there is definitely a tile or PSU issue as it just constantly flashes when connected directly to the PSU, looks like it's one for the scrap heap.:(
So I have an AquaRay Mini LED 400 tile with a two channel controller which I have had for bout 3 years. On Saturday I noticed one the LED's was not working. Yesterday the tile ramped up (minus one LED) but keeps switching off every 30 seconds and going through the ramp up process again in a...
It certainly sounds better but to me it still sounds noisy. That said, I've just taken video of a 2324 and a 2078 and the video audio sounds far noisier than what it does when listening 'live'. I'd still do the bucket rest if I were you.
In the second picture it looks like there is a dent in the floss media that looks like it was made by the impellor part of the pump head. This basket should be covered by a green grill, do you have this fitted and have just taken it out for the picture?
OK. I think that means that the pump can't output the selected flow. You may have seen this but the manual says to check the following:
Lever not set to fully “ON”.
Hose lines polluted.
Hoses buckled or too long.
Too many additional devices in the hose system (e.g.: CO2, UV...
My advice would be if you can afford a dual stage regulator than get one. It should remove any concerns about end of tank dump.
But to say that all single stage regs will cause end of tank dump is in my opinion incorrect.
This just isn't true. I'm not saying it doesn't / can't happen, I had a cheap regulator that was prone to it so I used to change the bottle once the pressure started to drop off. Fortunately I didn't lose any fish as I don't run my Co2 on the limit. The regulators I've had since don't do it. If...
I think the original post has been edited. Yesterday it had a link to a site that was selling 'fake' ones. The post also mentioned an un-named sponsor here selling 'fake' dual stage ones. If the latter is the case, and they are selling what is not on the tin then surely that is a concern?
I followed the wise words of Tim. I set up a low tech for my sister in law and a hybrid one for myself (both ~30L). I stuck to non demanding plants and can honestly say that these, so far, are two of the most successful tanks that I've done. They've been running for about 10 weeks.
Here is the...
