    Eheim anti-tamper screws

    Hi there, I have an Eheim Professional 3 350T and the heater isn't working and hasn't for some time. It looks like some moisture got in as I could see condensation on the inside of the LCD display, which is constantly flashing '00'. I've unplugged the heater power cable... The filter is out...

    Marine Aquarium spec aquariums

    https://www.greenaqua.hu/en/beta-compact-30-30x40x30-cm-36-liter-akvarium-hatso-polcos-szuressel.html?___from_store=hu This one still keeps the full front to back depth of the aquarium. Some places sell a white version.

    ADA filters LPH

    I'm not sure that the smaller ADA models (Superjet 150 and 300) have the same Iwaki high pressure pumps as the bigger models. Also they come with the Spin Pipe outlets which are designed to reduce flow even more for the ADA mini tanks. I find that the high flow from a jet pipe type outlet works...

    Ikea cabinet hack

    This guy uses Ikea cabinets for big aquariums but with some modifications. I have a 16 litre aquarium on an Ikea Kallax 4x3 with a varnished plank of wood on top. Even though aquarium is only 16 litres the Kallax wobbles more than I would like. I would maybe put a 45P or 60P on it but no...

    What’s the difference?

    I have the Oase version. Hmmm.

    5ft Bookshelf Aquarium - River Scape

    Hi again. Could you answer a quick question about your Kallax stand? Is the board on top glued on and if so, which glue did you use? Thanks, P

    5ft Bookshelf Aquarium - River Scape

    Hi Colm. I don't have BBA in my high flow tank and I think it's due to low intensity light. My LED is on for 12 hours but it ramps up and down slowly with a peak of 20%. The rocks still have an algal film and I only have a few plants. The java fern does OK but crypts and Hygrophila are...

    Hanging Rock - 45p Iwagumi

    Nice. Just thinking about a rack system myself. Can you tell me what is the brand of the filters that you use just next to the aquariums?

    Flexi Mini attempt

    Thanks very much. The filter is the smallest model (Filtosmart 60) with no room for a heater. You can add a heater if you have a bigger model (Filtosmart 100...). I don't use a heater as my flat is always warm. When doing water changes I check the water temp using my pH meter. I don't think a...

    5ft Bookshelf Aquarium - River Scape

    Lovely stones. I didn't manage to get such a nice gradation in sizes. Something I'm still looking to fix. I really recommend Tanichthys micagemmae. Fish for this specialised environment should be expensive! They look really nice in a big group and even shoal. Plus, the light can make their eyes...

    Flexi Mini attempt

    Background I bought an Azoo Flexi-Mini Scape Set from one of the UKAPS sponsors (Aquasabi) back in September. I wanted to get back into using CO2 as I had all the equipment going unused because my 125 litre aquarium is now low tech with oxygen-loving gobies and loaches. With such a tiny...
