    The ethics of Otocinclus

    The Otocinclus always reminds me of this very old video (14 years ago, getting old..... :P) I really love these fish in planted tanks/good and healthy environments and they are really cool to have in a group. But also always think about the origin of them which always feels weird to see....

    Galaxy paradise 2021 [ADA 120P]

    thanks. No concerns here regarding the MDF. I've made a similar one back in 2009 for my other/old tank (100x50x50cm). Its moved from house etc, positions, and moving to make place for this new 120P. Never had issues with it. Made sure all parts are covered with the paint layers and inside the...

    Running the Eheim 4+ 600 (2275) on my 120P for a month now. Later when my old tank is gone all add the eheim 2217 to it (now running on the old tank untill i have sold it...) But the 2275 is running great. Nice outflow, very quiet, nice filter media capacity, easy in use. Had the Oase 850T...

Small thing I changed this time was the front panel. This one is now aligned and in front of the top panel...

    New Decade, New Decadence...

    I noticed a photo with the output of a tube mounted to the light stand. I couldn't find the used dosing system/pump in this topic via the search. So i was wondering: which pump/system is connected on the other side of that tube? :P

    Options to turn old GHL dosing pumps into a smart 2021 version?

    I have still a GHL dosing pump here. But it's not a "smart" version. The screen brightness is going down after these years so reading it is also hard. In the past i already replaced the screen/board for a new one. But it expensive. So i was wondering: would it be possible to convert this "old"...
