    ZooPlus are fine. They're a German company though, so the filter will be supplied with a Euro > UK plug adaptor.

    I've had three filters from them - 2 EX700's and 1 EX1200. No problems with any of them.

    used them about 10 times for various things and postage is good considering they arent in the UK. products are good although writing is in german but most stuff has english in the instructions though. it doesnt matter as long as you know what you have ordered and understand what it is for and how to use it!

    bought 4 fluro tubes from them recently, cheapest on the net, came in 4 days, free postage over £29.00 and 10 or 15% discount on your first order, i think thats good!

    sweet, theres only one thing i am worried about. which is the tetratec ex600's spray bar, i dont want one, i want just a normal outflow, so how do i do this, they are only supplied with spray bars, i think

    You don't have to use the spraybars.

    sorry mate, the make of tubes i'm using are a bit of a swear word on here, i got 1 39w colour plus, 2 39w special plant and 1 24w amazon daylight, and they are pretty expensive at 18 quid each!

    what happens if i dont use the spray bars, is it just a pipe straight down, or is there another outlet option provided?

    i suppose the worlds your oyster, you can use whatever you like that you can ultimately attach to 12/16mm tube, but nothing else came with my 1200's!

    There is an elbow provided where the spraybar connects.




    Spraybars are generally better for distribution imo.

    Spray bars in terms of distribution are regarded as the best but many find them an eye sore, if you can stand it use it if not then a glass one from AE or lilly pipes are good solid choices.

    glass inlets and outlets are a bit out of my budget at the moment, maybe in the future

    i spose i will just use the spraybar, where is best to position it, on the water surface? is it good to have alot of surface agitation(for c02, its only easycarbo, if that helps)
