    Just thinking about it

    I use a rotary tool for that... shave the edge until it fits under the rim plus you should shave the edges where it's going to sit on the silicone so it doesn't cut into it

    acrylic? hell no...its super duper expensive at least in canada... get a glass cutter on amazon or any hardware store there's basically 3 types...a rolling cutter which looks like this: these sell at home hardware and are the basic garbage cutters and go for around 10 bucks then the oil ones...

    myself I'd build it on the back... a good size for you to be able to fit your hands inside would be around 5inches/13cm running along the 77cm/30" with a sock partition this way being 5 by 5 and the exit or another intake sock another 5" and for sure 5" on the media partition in case something...

    Aquariums buy uk

    marketplace has tons... I saw quite a few from London and within 80km at around 40-60 pounds from 100 to 200 liters I suggest you go on marketplace if you have a car...if not...ask if the person can deliver for some extra $..they usually will if you help out with the physical part

    Just thinking about it

    both of these designs would work..... first one would be an inline pump so you can achieve whatever flow you want as the water is literally sucked from the tank through the sock 2nd design uses gravity so it'll depend on how fast water can pass through the sock filters both designs are...

    Is there a way to bring the KH levels in water down besides R/O units, bottled water, or distilled water??

    Honestly if anyone wants to do co2 without a controller my suggestion is to adjust very slowly once a day depending on ph levels and NEVER go under 7 or you risk killing everything on there. Another way you can do co2 is to cut a pop bottle and add a weight to the open side and drop it in the...

    well that's the average for a co2 setup...$300 on the cheaper side a lot higher if you go with blue labs because then you need to add peristaltic pumps etc..

    well bluelabs is expensive..even the monitors...I'd just get a cheaper one....they work just the same... I have a weipro with analog knobs but there's ones with double power outputs for ph/orp at around 100 bucks for the price of a bluelabs monitor you can literally buy a sodastream bottle ($15...

    you can grab a tap filter from amazon for around 30 bucks and make a ceramic filter for around 15-20 the shower filter can lower minerals/metals/chlorine etc...don't expect RO water because it won't be but it'll lower stuff in your water quite a bit... my water without this thing comes out...

    if it was just a few and introducing them as fry so they grow together meh...maybe....in numbers like those don't think so... this 4 tank idea could work specially if they don't see each other...put a background on each tank this way every time they meet on the "bridge" they just take off back...

    Request for feedback on stocking of a 10ftx4ftx22 inch aquarium

    4 20gal tanks in a square table with a sump and 3 smaller upside down tanks could work... that way each type of loach would claim and keep to their tank...
