    Can Anyone Recommend A Filter?

    Thanks! Classic 150 looks like it could be just the ticket. Hard to track down though, presumably they're discontinuing them as almost all I find are shipping from Europe.

    Can Anyone Recommend A Filter?

    Just getting back in to the hobby after a few years away. Starting small and just got myself a little 55L cube. Anyway can anyone recommend a external canister filter that will do the job for a 55L? My only requirements are that it is nice and quiet. :)

    New Tank Recommendations

    Hey there, thanks for the welcome!   I am also in the UK and have heard of Fluval. The Roma 90 looks like it could be just the ticket with an external filter added as you suggested. I think I may have an old cannister filter about in the garage I could dig out.

    New Tank Recommendations

    Hi all,   I have been out of the hobby a few years now but thinking about getting back into it. Something smaller around 90L is what I want this time, but it looks like Juwel only start from 125L these days. Any recommendations? Also which places do people use to buy online? Previous sites I...

    15l Nano Cube... Fish Choices?

    Thank for the suggestions everyone :) I'll do a little more reading and such. I need to wait for the tank to finish cycling yet so I have a bit of time.

    15l Nano Cube... Fish Choices?

    I have this little 15L cube kicking about that I once had a betta in. I'm setting it up again and wondering what fish would be suitable for a tank of this size. Any suggestions? I was thinking a few little cory for the bottom although I've read the tank may be too small for these and shrimp...

    Need Advice For A New Tank

    Thanks both of you :) I'll see if Pets at Home is open tomorrow and grab one of those. Sounds like it will be just the ticket. Cazcar do you use yours at room temperature or have you squeezed a heater in there?

    Need Advice For A New Tank

    I've just managed to smash the tank my betta was living in so need some advice / recommendations on a new one. It doesn't need to be big and fancy as he's the only fish that will be living in there. Something small with a little heater and hob filter would be ideal?

    Plant Donations

    If anyone in the UK has some cuttings around it would be much appreciated. Just setting my tank up again after a few years absence from the hobby. I've donated a fair few swords, crypts and things in the past on here when my tank was up last. :)

    Leaking Canister Filter..

    My tank has been stood empty for a few years and I'm setting it up again now. My external canister filter fires up just fine but as soon as I turn it on I hear a hissing noise and water seeps from between the filter base and where the main head of it fits on. It all seems to be sitting fine and...

    Where To Buy Filter Spares

    The rubber rings that go between the filter baskets inside my canister filter have split. Does anyone know somewhere to buy them? The filter is an Atman AT-3337 which is just an Eheim clone. Someone has said Atman make the filters from Aqua One and the filters are exactly the same as theirs...

    Koi Carp Jumping

    Thanks guys! I'll check the temperature and see what it says, its mainly been cold weather but we have had some warm days lately. I think the netting might be a good idea too. :)

    Koi Carp Jumping

    We have a pond outside and at the moment the koi carp keep jumping out the water daily. None of them have jumped clean out the pond as of yet so we have been lucky. Any ideas why they are doing this?

    Which Water Conditioner

    Which water conditioner do you use? I have tried many different products now, tap safe was my favourite for a while but I find it does not last that long when changing nearly 90L of water every week. Any out there that last that bit longer?... :blink:

    Juwel 180 Tank Lighting

    I left the stock tubes in but then I also added another tube in each of the flaps so now there's four tubes in total. I have four arcadia fresh water lamps at 30W each totalling 120W. I bought a double lighting unit from eBay to power the other two tubes and attached the lights to the flaps with...

    Cleaning Ceramic Diffuser's

    I use a normal bleach but I find it seeps through the disc after a little while which means I have to keep submersing the diffuser in water after to get it out. It's a real pain! Interested to see what bleach others use as it's getting very annoying and time consuming to clean now.

    Juwel 180 Tank Lighting

    My Rio 180 has 120W over it with reflectors. I can grow everything I have tried so far and low plants such as Glossostigma are carpeting very well with it. It's a new world in there once you add more lighting, my swords grew twice the size and started propergating like crazy.

    Riccia Hair Nets Online?

    Does anyone know where hair nets suitable for holding riccia down can be bought online? I had a quick look on eBay but I'm not sure which ones will do the job.

    Rotala Indica Growing Slow

    I recently bough some new plants, all are growing well except the Rotala Indica. I dose the EI method and run about 2.5WPG. When it came it was really red I expected the red to fade to green and new growth to be green as I guessed I would not have enough lighting to keep the bright red. This...
