Thank you for all your suggestions guys and it's been a great help and given me some good ideas, I like the 'Galaxy Rasboras' and also the...
Hi guys, hope you are all doing well and it's good to be back after a few years break. I am after some advice and recommendations for some fish...
Ah, nice one Andy... Just what I'm after, thanks for the link.
Hi, guys... Does anyone know where I can get hold of the co2 glass or acrylic U bends in the UK?
Do we have the names yet?
Fantastic hard scape again mate, very nicely done indeed - looking forward to seeing this develop :)
Terrible news :( inspiration to many - RIP
Good news George... Tempted to join you as I keep looking at new tanks ;)
Fantastic mate.... Another belter from the master! Great detail and scale too - a winner for sure :)
Hi mate, the Ehiem Scubaline do a nice range and you can now get them with LEDs built in :)
Yes I agree with Ali, it looks great and nice and mature.... The colours on the bows look incredible too.
Another tidy cabinet..... Where did you get the tray from?
That's what I did with mine and works fine :)
Looks fantastic James! Great to see your work again.
White vinegar and kitchen tissue :)
I got mine yesterday and am really pleased with it! The control over the lighting spectrum is incredible! I might have to invest in the reef link...
What the FW versions? I have been watching Charter House Aquatics to see when they are getting them in - look like they have the marine versions...
A very interesting read so far! are these in the UK yet?
As above mate, download Spybot (free software) run a full scan and let it do its thing - could take 45mins. When it's done and found errors, run...
This looks great Ali, really liking the wood you have used, you can't get more natural than that! are these the Fluval tanks with the side opening...
Very nice - do you have any more info on the lid, on how it was made? I've often thought about making one for my TMC signature as the mrs hates...
Yes they are great fish, one of my favourite - look great in a planted tank too when they mature :thumbup:
I would say they are all females, sometimes females can have a orange-ish tinge, where as males have a distinct red.
Prime is your friend :) you won't go wrong with it!
Thanks for the info Chris, I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures and following with big interest :thumbup:
Great pictures and I like the frosted tank background - what are you using for your light filters?
I would say that the standard lighting that you have is more than adequate... if anything to much! I would not bother to add reflectors either.
Fantastic results for all the UKAPS team - well done everyone! :clap:
Well... 'Landslide' slid in at 1050 - up quite a bit from last years, so quiet pleased :thumbup:
I thought my result may have come in this mornings post.... Not a sausage :(
anyone have the link for online results?
Very nice scapes, as Nath says... The March one is stunning!
Well Glenda, I have been reading allot of your posts and various questions you have asked and I would say you are very much on the right track and...
Looking forward to watching this develop - thats a big lump of wood too!
Just top up straight from the tap - I must put around half a litre every day in mine (120litre tank) straight out the tap - I only use...
Great video and some fantastic tanks too! Nice to see your setup.... That would be my dream :thumbup:
Very nice, it's filled out very nice indeed and the scape you have done suits the tank perfectly :thumbup:
Iain... This is an absolute belter of a scape, shown off to perfection by a fantastic video! This is my favourite scape by far - the choice of...
I'm in Norfolk for a few days... Can anyone recommend any aquatic shops worth a visit?
I normally use a bit of white vinegar on some kitchen tissue, a quick wipe and it's gone :thumbup:
Thank you for the kind words Tim :thumbup:
Sorry for the delay in getting some photos up - I'm having a few problems with my Flickr account so have uploaded these few... these are not the...
Mines just gone in.... last minute.com!
It looks stunning Iain! A fantastic video and the fish look superb too...! One thing I notice though, is you have very little movement from the...
Thanks Tim :thumbup:
Cheers Ali:thumbup: Its looking much better now too, thanks to your help :snaphappy:
I thought I had best make a start on my latest journal 'LandSlide' - This was actually started a few months back now, but as life...
To be honest.... I would not think it matters to much as EI never has to be that accurate, its all about over dosing what is needed - if it were...
Double the water amount into what you have and have the next lot ready mixed :)
Welcome to the forum :)
Bleach won't do anything, just use one Oust sachet and add a little water in a cup (remove the rubber sucker) and leave to soak - you will see the...
It's 100% lime scale - I get it on mine. I soak mine in Oust lime scale remover for kettles/irons.... 2 hrs in that and it's like new again. I...
I had a custom map, it's about 320bhp.... Not sure on 0-60, but on paper it says around 4.9.
I looked into getting my V6 mapped, but it was not...
Traded mine in for the TTS.... stage 1 map = flying machine :nailbiting:
Higher tax band then :( I did not realise till I sold mine that the s-tronics were a band lower, yet the cabriolet s-tronic is in the same band as...
Any previews to show us Stu?
Looks nice Nath :) is it s-tronic? I swapped mine last week
Looking forward to seeing these mate, they look great little tanks - I'm sure you will do them proud :thumbup:
I've been using oust kettle de-scailer.... Seems to work fine :thumbup:
Hi Bert, when I first started in this hobby 3 years ago and adding co2 I used exactly the same JBL bubble counter - all was well for a while, but...
Lovely stuff... A great review too Ali... I'll be ordering mine this weekend :thumbup:
16/22mm tube, I went for a 300w, but a 200w would also do the job:thumbup:
An excellent read about that fellow here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard
Black Beard :)
Holly poop! That's big...! :eek:
Ali, you could charge admission when this is done for people to come and view your projects... I can see it now,...
Eleocharis sp :thumbup:
Lovely stuff Nath!
Sorry to hear this mate :( do you have any ideas what may have happened?
Now they look easier to clean! :)
That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing it :thumbup:
Apple = King :thumbup:
Very nice Bert... Loving the Rainbow selection too - all that hard work has paid off :thumbup:
A lovely scape Sanj and the fish are stunning too.... They look very at home in that setup :thumbup:
Thank you Dan :thumbup:
That really nice, the shrimp look fab! What sort of power and duration do you run the tile at?
That looks very nice, but that's allot of light, you would easily get away with using just the smaller light.
They look stunning mate and look very much at home already :thumbup:
Perfect on Weetabix too :)
Cheers Aron :)
Thanks Ian :thumbup: A decent price too.
Hi guys, I'm after a shorter length 17mm glass inlet - can anyone point me in the right direction? Most 17mm inlets seem to be around 300mm
Congratulations again mate, you will do TMC proud, and I for one know that the market will be developed very well and be in good hands :clap:
Christmas moss for sure :)
Lovely stuff and as clean as a whistle! :thumbup:
Very nice indeed Stu, another winner for sure! Your scapes and plant choice are always spot on mate - well done :)
Nor do I, but sometimes they are already on plants that you buy ;)
Fantastic layout Iain... I'm sure you will do fine with the UG... it will look stunning when filled out too! Looking forward to seeing this one...
I'll have another go... Hopefully it will get marked lol - hoping we can try to beat the number of last years UK entry's too :)
That's a great idea and thanks for sharing it :)
Looks like a great start Nath, I think you have the hard scape spot on for the tank too - will be looking forward to seeing this develop.
My black hoodie is spot on, really chuffed with it :)
That's really nice and you have some great contrasts with plants, how do you find that skimmer that's built into the inlet... Is it acrylic?
It sounds like you need to get yourself to the auditions at 'Britain's got Talent' :)
I'd love to be able to play the drums! But I think if I...
Cheers Tim... Yeah I'm really chuffed mate - I do miss the Trigon sometimes so you never know ;) but I do like this open topped tank and lighting,...
That is a shame mate, it would of been good to see you again and you buy me a beer ;) I'm sure there will be other events coming up through the...
Thanks mate... Yes I've just seen that.... Global! I'm really chuffed too :) are you going this weekend?
Cheers Paulo - for the price of the light its fairly good, but I am missing being able to dim it down a bit. :facepalm:
Thanks mate... the...
It looks great mate, I like all the colours you have mixed in and it suits the tank really well. Where did you get the co2 elbow joint from that...
Yes its worth it - I was putting about half a litre a day in mine. I just use a 5L container for the water feed... seems to work OK.
Yes it is...well spotted - it is a very easy solution :thumbup:
Thanks :thumbup: yes it is the Beamswork light, i just thought i'd have a play ;)
Thank you :)
Thanks the auto top up is the TMC kit, a...
