    Which phone?

    Hi guys, My contract is up for renewal and I'm wondering what phone/network to go for. I had an HTC hero which was rubbish and died very quickly, now I have an HTC desire. I haven't been too impressed with it as often it thinks I'm swiping a direction when I'm not. So trying to do most things...

    Not sure if anyone is interested, but the large fish tank in a footballers house is on 'come dine with me WAGs'. About 3 minutes in and 30 minutes or so. I couldn't find the original thread - sorry.

    Edible plants

    Hi Guys, This follows on from Steves thread about spring pictures really. I like to devote most of the space in my garden to edible and useful plants. I remember watching some tv programs that mention a few edible plants or flowers and I wondered what plants or flowers other people know are...

    Own your photos?

    This was just posted by one of my friends who does photography http://stop43.org.uk/ Thought it might be of interest of any people with photographs on here. To me it seems far too often the government wants to rip us citizens off for everything we have and feed the pockets of themselves and...

    Natural Lighting

    In grand designs I've seen people use light tubes to light their houses for free. Is it ever possible to use natural daylight to light a tank without having algae problems?

    Damn D&D problems

    Soooo, after fighting loads just to get CO2 working ok coming on and off at the correct time and pressure I then had to turn it off for 6 days. It is now v. broken. I haven't been able to get the second gauge on because I have no spanner. When I leave the set not plugged in the pressure slowly...

    Hi there, Sorry I've messed some of you around but I can't send out the P. helferi. I had like the worst experience ever. Just moved to Cambridge and once I filled up the tank I realized everyone of my CPDs/galaxy rasboras were dead, and then the next day when I came home I noticed 3 massive...

    Plants from Greenline - A review

    So I had to make an order to greenline to make up for the iffy plants from Java, in an established tank they would do fine but I was concerned with a new setup they may leech ammonia etc. Website is a bit tricky to use and I used the search function alot. It did take me a few minutes just to...

    Liseys Rio 125

    So finally got all the bits together for a high-tech tank! Rio 125 - 125 litres roughly there was no lighting unit so I had to bodge one. It may last, it doesn't look as great as I hoped. Lighting - 2 x 36 W power compact T5 with reflectors bulbs are a 954 from Lamp specs and an interpet...

    Plants from Java - A review

    Following the article in PFK I decided to get some plants from Java. I'm not sure if I am allowed but I thought I would review my service as a whole. I recieved what I ordered. All plants were separated into species and were labelled by name. All were packed very well although the quality of the...

    Rotala rotundifolia

    Is available at MA in Fareham. Lovely place btw. They'd just done a trim of their display tank. Lovely chap in there came up to me to chat as I'd been in before twice. I bought a Nymphaea lotus (zenkeri) as I've been after a red one for a while. Now not sure if I've got a red one or not. Their...

    My bit of good fortune

    So in a bit of good luck I managed to sell some items, and be offered a rio 125 for free! How lucky is that?! The only thing is the light is broken, and obviously it has to pan out. So I managed to find an ASL PC 2 x 36w lighting set including reflectors on sale at £29.99. I realise this maybe...

    Full time job in a Fish Shop

    Porton Pet and Aquatics is looking for a full-time member of staff that will pretty much run the fish house. I am not sure how much it pays, I know the last guy was on £6.50 an hour. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone is interested.

    Help with my nutrifin canisters

    I am going to set up my two sets from Supercoley1 (cheers btw mate), and I want to use just one ladder. Can I use a standard T piece for now? Most major question, if I am putting this on top of my aquarium can I use a standard non-return valve for now? Or do I have to make one?

    Vision 180

    This is quite random, but if you had a Vision 180 with a faulty light unit... * Can you just buy a new juwel lighting system with T8 and convert to T6 * Could I buy the high-lite one and find cheap bulbs (I tried looking on lamp spec but couldn't find the right ones 35w 742 mm apparently) * Can...

    T8 lighting help please!

    Hi there, Until me and the fiance move into our own flat (julyish) I've been banned from setting up the new 180 litre tank I got at the FoF. Which I guess is good as I will be earning money then, so will be able to pay for stuff like a nice cabinet. Atm though I'm still have one tank on the go...

    Please advise on an external for 180L tank

    What external filter would you recommend for a tank that holds about 180 litres? I have always used the X04 range from fluval but noticed that after a year or two they get quite noisy. Does anyone have a Rio 180 or similar that could recommend an external to me? I tend to agree with George...

    Micro fish ahoy

    I visited Arundel Avairies in Arundel Street, Portsmouth today and they have loooooads of micro fish! Loads of types of rasboras, including cpds and this really cool type which are the same shape but have tiger stripes and a spot by the tail. I would give latin names but they don't tend to label...

    Hey there, For my new tank I'm not sure what lighting to go for. I was highly considering the realux T5 all in one jobbys, getting 2 x 35". I am a little worried about the fact that once the light blows you need to throw the whole thing away. If it comes with a years guarantee then it's fine...
