    Pressurized Co2, Equipment, Flow And Fertilization

    Running a airstone or air curtain will only cause Co2 to be driven out of the water, therefore you will have to constantly inject more Co2 in order to reach the optimum Co2 level. (wasting Co2 and your money)   I would reccomend removing the air curtain, or only running it whilst the lights are off.

    12 Years Ago Today

    I was working at the MOD, (Ministry Of Defence) everything went a bit crazy with people leaving in a hurry and the security on its higest alert.     Stopped to watch what was happening on a plasma screen in one of the recptions, didnt feel like it was real at the time.

    Auto Dosing

    The marine magic pump has a built in LCD screen which allows for timings to be set for each and every day, if you have a search on Ebay for them you will see what I mean.   There is also a picture of the pump in the first post of my new journal. Take a look.  ...

    Camarones Paraíso

    Small update just to keep the journal ticking over.    5 days growth since last picture and the HC is spreading faster than I thought it would. The Ammania sp Bonsai is growing at a fair pace. Filter pipes need a good clean which I will do at the weekend. Finally still trying to source more...

    Camarones Paraíso

      Thanks Mike, the HC will take a while to fully carpet but once it has it will be nice.      So true, it is nice having just a few types of plants rather than dozens of different types. Stems are great but grow to quickly for my liking.      Well I did my best to try and keep away from an...

    Led Light Bar ?

    Hey,    I wouldn't recommend trying to place any orders with ps3steveo, there have been quite a few problems with existing orders not being delivered so I would suggest looking elsewhere.

    Led Light Bar ?

    Hello,    The LED lighting you have posted a link to will not be sufficient to grow plants under, they would be good enough to light your tank but not to grow plants

      On a low tech set up I like you would just run the bulb till it dies out.

    Electric Blue Rams

    Can you not source some mature media from a local fish store or a friend? if you add this to your new filter it will help kickstart the cycle.   Have a read through this thread, it will explain exactly what you need to do;  ...

    Aquarium Lighting

    The thing is that the human naked eye is not as sensitive as plants are to the strength/power of light, so even if your lighting looks as bright as it did 10-12 months ago the light that is being emmited will be lower than when the bulb was new.   This will make a difference to your plants...
