Not sure if this should be a new topic or just a post under 'Welcome if so maybe a moderator can move this for me. I am from Holland, and curious how things are organised in the aquarium hobby here in the UK. So I registered and tried some stuff out like placing pictures in the gallery (!click!). Works like a charm As you can see from the gallery pictures I like photography, and ofcourse planted tanks and aquatic plants. Being an electronics engineer, I also built much of my own aquarium equipment. pH controller, ORP controller, and dimmer for dimmable TL tubes. This stuff is for sale in Holland (not in the UK) and the dimmer is very popular, it gives nice sunrise and sunset effects. I mainly use it to control the amount of light on the tank during the day, it is very easy to experiment with darker periods, periods of very high intensity lighting, etc. Some lighting schemes seem to benefit the plants much more than the algae. No scientific facts here, just playing around a bit So, about the aquarium hobby in the UK. How is it organised ?
