So here we are iv had a small 60L juwel for around 5 years now where iv been more into the fish than scape but recently iv got more into the planted side and some of your guys aquariums really inspired me to try my best to create something beautiful.
Iv ended up with a 80cm opti white bought as a full kit including filter, co2, heater substrate and a rock style ornament.
I got everything set up last night and after a trip to my 4 closest LFS I ended up at Maidenhead aquatics in welbeck farm shop who were brilliant, really nicely stocked shop too.
Iv got my first few plants in there and a load more being delivered Monday.
Just a couple of questions I’m struggling to get my inlet skimmer to float I can manually put it at any height but it just won’t float no matter what its almost as if the filter pull is too strong.
Also the filter is pretty noisy is that usual for external? It’s an APS 1400 unit iv only had internals before which you really can’t hear.
anyway here’s a pic of the tank and looking forward to keeping you all updated as it progresses
