    Ive got a juwel rio 125l and so far, its just a mess so ive decided that Im going to completely restart and redo it.

    Here is a fairly recent picture:

    Here's the plan, please can you comment on it and see if its acceptable? I'll include prices aswell so if you know of anything cheaper online please pm me :)

    Here goes:

    JBL aquabasis 2x5l +1 bag of eco complete- £55
    2kg Fire extinguisher- £2+£13p&p
    Dual Gauged CO2 Regulator + Solenoid Magnetic Valve R2- £56.50 (Link- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Dual-Gauged-C...ash=item160319528256&_trksid=p4634.m351.l1262>> is it ok to use?

    Koralia (300lph hong king version) - £10
    Drop checker- £4.50
    C02 diffuser- £6


    I think that is all for the moment. With concerns to the lights. The lights are juwel hi lite and they have been in there for jsut over 1 year now. Are they still ok to use? Because it will be a pain to replace them with their prices being £30 per tube.

    I also have no idea what plants I wish to have whcih is a real pain and these will be the biggest cost of the project which Im afraid off as im nearly always strapped for cash lol

    please comment on the list so far and help reccommend me anything else

    would 2x 5l bags of JBL aquabasis and 1 bag of eco complete be sufficient?
