    DIY Twinstar steriliser questions

    Hello everyone. I found a tutorial on DIY steriliser and was wondering if there is any alternative to the lantern battery (it’s rare here) other than using an AC/DC adaptor? I’m quite scared of getting electric shock. Will dry charge motorcycle battery work as a safer alternative? Cheers

Well I thought i'd have another go ;) I recently (read finally) moved the 200l AquaOak home with me after moving in with my partner some time ago.

    Lighting options - Is a Twinstar 900SA overkill?

    Hi all, I'm looking at lighting options at the moment for my 200l aquaoak (99.5 (W) x 40 (D) x 50 (H) cm) and am thinking about picking up a second hand Twinstar 900S. I have a couple of questions: 1. Is a 900S overkill for a no co2 system? I'm probably looking at running co2 at a later date...

    Dimmer for a Twinstar 1200S

    I have a question. Can anyone recommend a programable dimmer that works with the Twinstar 1200SA? Or do you know if a Way2top S2 Pro dimmer will work with it? I need dimming capability and also ramp up/down as well. I have a Way2top S2 Pro dimmer that works very well with my 24" Twinstar but I...

    ADA 60f rock layout

    For my birthday I was lucky enough to receive an ADA 60f and the kit to go along with it. I'll be putting a lot of my savings into this project too. I've been waiting quite a while to set this up, but I had to get my trial exams out the way before I could get going. I made a visit to Aquarium...

    Twinstar 600 SA VS 600 SP

    I am working on a high tech heavily planted tank. I am trying to decide what light to go with. I have narrowed it down to the twinstar s series. But due to my location my options are the 600 SA or the 600 SP. I am wondering does the 600 SA adjust in height? Or just in length. If the 600 SA does...

    Twinstar Style Light for 800 mm Tank

    I have an 800 mm tank very well planted. The light I am currently using is an Aquael LEDDY Slim 80 - 100 cm. What I would like is a Twinstar as they are great looking and the elevated position gives better coverage over the tank. The problem Twinstar do not make one for my size of the tank it is...

    Dimming a Twinstar 450e?

    Im likely to buy the 45cm wide Dennerle Aquascaper as my first planted. It will be in the lounge, so dimming may be important sometimes if someone is sitting nearby (I presume). At the moment I may either go for the Twinstar 450e or the Chihiros Aquasky 45cm Double. If I go for the...

    Bonsai Mountain Scape

    After starting my first tank (Superfish Home 60) I found that I was limited more than I first realised I would be due to the all in one nature of the tank. Being a bit naive I thought I'd be able to achieve what I had pictured in my head but soon realised that without making fundamental changes...

    Should I invest in more lighting?

    Hi all, so i have a 200L tank from a well known and recognised aquatic retailer. I purchased with it the Fluval Fresh Plant 2.0 LED, around 90CM.
