    Light - how low can you go?

    A long running hobby joke, it means a light of insane output.

    Aquarium and Natural History Books

    I have Danish aquarium books in triplicate now that I buy every time I see them, the pictures are just so charming.

    Going for a new light

    I had a vivid and sent it back because the fans I thought were very intrusive 😅

    Going for a new light

    if that nettle one can be hung from the ceiling so it doesn’t have the doofy looking stand I’d take a chance on it IF the fan is off like 99.99% of the time.

    The Original

    I often find when a scape has run out of control the best thing is the resolution and relief when the next scape hits, even rescued scapes can still harbour that ghost of dissatisfaction. So what’s next then? 😈

    How much filter for a UNS 60U?

    I would build your scape first and then take a look at your outlets. I personally like the aquario plastic clear outlets a lot but I also use cal aqua lilys from time to time. Horses for courses.

    How much filter for a UNS 60U?

    Landen Rimless Aquariums?

    I have both, I like the uns better for finish at the mitre but in a blind taste test I would take the one that had the dimensions I like best and would be unable to tell the difference were it not for the mitre.

    DIY Project Is this base strong enough?

    If I were you I’d get a plate cut of the same size as the top in a thick plywood and add a brace or two at the back to remove any wobble. If it isn’t on adjustable feet or nicely levelled I’d also figure that out.
