    Stupid is as stupid does

    Hi Jack, swapping and trading is a little awkward as many UK members would prefer to deal with someone in the same country and I wouldn't blame them as shipping is very costly plus things are easily broken in the post.

    Stupid is as stupid does

    Would 500w of a led light be a overkill? All my T5's are 'only 480 watts' and that's too much but in my ignorance I probably got it wrong! I'm a member of a fish club here in Ireland ( if you're not I would suggest joining one because of the benefits such as plant swaps and fish that are passed...

    Stupid is as stupid does

    Hi mate and thanks for the reply, regarding powerheads there are two Tunze models one seemingly does 12,000 litres a hour and the smaller smaller one I'm not sure. The external filters originally used to drive homemade CO2 reactors but now are just used as filtration. As regards LED lights the...

    Stupid is as stupid does

    Having had some scary electric bills recently I've decided to change lights in the house to LED's, switch off appliances rather than put them on standby but still the bills were too high so knocked two thirds of the lights off over the tank and removed one of the external filters (there was...

    Congratulations on a lovely tank and getting it featured in PFK, looks awesome. Trouble is now we expect bigger and better and frankly don't know how you can do that!!!! Again well done

    Who am I?

    Hey Joe, how's tricks? They have turned out nice and seem the friendliest cichlids I've had the good fortune of having but thanks for letting me float them in your tank and the multitude of mugs of coffee and cakes, didn't sleep for two days :shock: It's been a while since I 'borrowed' some of...

    Stupid is as stupid does

    Re: Stupid is as stupid does ( blasted filters) I had put the Anubias plants into a two foot tank but they melted :crazy: , I had never checked that I plugged in the heater so I assume that was the problem. Really annoyed with myself as they just fitted into the tank size wise. I don't mind so...

    How many of you faced this already?

    Quick clarification, it's not me ( my babies days are truly behind me (no pun intended)), my biggest baby is training to be a midwife and thought I would be amused, I dry heave still at the smell of soiled nappies :roll:
