Welcome to Ukaps! :D


Heres a link for you to a file hosting site where you can store your images for use in your forum posts

Simply upload your images then copy and paste the IMG code into your post.

Looks like your off to a good start -

Seems not many people using the Red Sea Flora base on here but Ive had great results with it . Its just gone into my new scape too.

The Jbl system is pretty standard equipment around here but a lot of people will change the spiral diffuser for something a bit more efficient. Glass/ceramic diffusers are common place, These offer a much higher diffusion rate and are also less unsightly. You might want to look into adding a bubble counter and a drop checker.

You dont mention what ferts you might use, this is something you will have to look into.


enjoy :D

Planter, I'm guessing that reactor thing is external? And the flow rates, max being 200lph? Seems a little low does it not?
