I can't be the only one who watches this - anyone else? Come on Andy, I can count on you - me and you were X Factor buddies. :lol:
I know a lot hasn't happened so far, but I'll be supporting these guys this year.
Is that good or is that good? ;)
I don't think anyone can predict fish behaviour, it depends on the fish. Having said that, at 6cm they aren't large fish and small Rainbowfish aren't known for eating shrimp. I think you'll be ok, but you can only try it and see what happens. I've never kept them though.
Firstly, does anyone know what size lily pipes would fit a Fluval 105?
Also, I've never bought lily pipes before, and I'm starting to think if I did then I'd be broke for life! Does anyone know if there's anywhere to pick up a pair of lily pipes on the cheap?
Thanks for the advice guys! i have seen those two sites.
I've got some TetraMin, TetraPrima and a bunch of other foods, micro pellets, micro wafers, tetra crisps, algae wafers. I'll also get some of the above that I linked.
I'm planning to use a Fluval 105 on a 35l tank. The tank isn't very tall, and so the inlet/outlet are too large, especially the inlet being too long.
Can anyone suggest another way of using them/some other kind of inlet/outlet that I could buy on the cheap?
I've never kept Cories, and want to get some this weekend. Having never kept them (or any bottom-feeder for that matter) I'm not too sure on what to feed them!
Could anyone who has eperience with Cories recommend a food for them? Something that AE sell would be good. :D
I can't wait for this feature! Biotopes are my favourite thing. The tank that I'm planning to do now is goin to be a biotope.
This will hopefully increase the number of biotopes entered into IAPLC, it's too scarce for my liking!
I do have a Fluval 105 that I've never used. I tried to use it once but obviously did something wrong because it leaked and stuff... I'll give it another go. The only thing is, the intake/outake are quite large anyway.
That's what I thought about the water changes, Andy. I've seen quite a few tanks on here where that's been done.
Ed, thanks for that advice - it makes more sense now you've put it like that!
Do you think (about the crampness)? I've got a similar internal to what I'll be getting - it's not...
I still don't get how you superglue Anubias to wood...
So, you want to superglue the Anubias flat onto a piece of bogwood, right? Do you just dab a bit inbetween the roots and then slap it on?
Oh, and this looks like another promising scape from what I can see! It's great that your mum loves...
Ok, I'm planning a tank that I would consider my first real aquascape, so I want to get it right. I'd appreciate it if a few of the more experienced members could look over my plan and see if they think it's viable.
Tank: 35l (approx. 50x30x25)
Lighting: 14w (approx. 1.5WPG) 6 hours for the...
Ahh I see... No problem, I'd rather someone tell me the bad points before I go buy it and have to spend millions of pounds on refills! That is quite a serious bad point to consider come to think of it.
I'm a CO2 injection newbie, but I would like to start doing so in a new tank that I'm planning. Being new to it, I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing!
I've seen this advertised in PFK in the last few issues, and they did a small feature on it in the most recent one. It seems like a good...
I know a few of you on here use this, I recently downloaded it for the second time and have been experimenting. It's quite easy to use.
The only thing is, after I've edited an image I can't work out how to save it as an image file (e.g. png, jpg etc) - it just saves as a GIMP file.
Re: My First Planted Tank - Juwel Rio 125
This tank has lasted well past its sell by date (which is far from a bad thing), it's great! It has a great feel to it.
What plans have you got for the future for this tank?
and update your shrimp tank journal :P
I am indeed thinking of adding some moss to the foreground, good idea. I was also thinking of getting some Cherry Shrimp, but might have to get rid of the Gouramis first.
:lol: The foreground isn't that dirty - most of that is fine gravel etc but it's just come out like that in the photo for...
I've probably posted this tank several times in it's many forms, just something I've thrown together to keep me occupied whilst I plan stuff for my aquascaping tank. It's been setup like this since around January, but I've changed the layout slightly several times.
in regards to the above, I agree that it can be quite daunting when people first enter the planted tank side of things, let alone join a new forum where everyone seems to know everything there is to know. That's not to say they haven't already searched for what they want to know, just because...
Nice! I'm sure he loves it.
Here's a few simple tips that seem to work for me:
- Switch the room lights off, tank iights on - as much light on the tank as possible
- Flash off, but experiment with diffusing the flash by covering it with white paper (maybe several layers)
I don't think you're responsible Mark, although I have to admit I was a little shocked when I saw your post in that topic - you're not one to get involved in the drama.
Let's hope from now on UKAPS is a happier place for everyone. :D
I've only got the 2008 booklet but I'm dissapointed with it. The photos are too small and there's not any information on any of the setups past the top 10 or so I think.
You'd be better off buying a Nature Aquarium World book if you haven't already got all three, or from what I hear the Aqua...
That was nicely said, George. ;)
I think we should see this as a fresh-start. I appreciate we're all gonna have our differences, but at the end of the day this is UKAPS we're talking about and we're all here because of our passion for planted tanks. Come on guys, let's all get along.
Hi, I need the biggest favour ever.
I have an image, and need some objects cut out and put onto a plain white background. I don't know how to do this, but I'm sure some of the Photoshop whizzes could do this for me in a couple of minutes!
Please please please if you could do this for me then...
Thanks for all the info :D that's really helpful.
This is a non-CO2-injection tank and stocking is neither under or over-stocked.
So I gather it's ok to dose TPN+ according to the bottle, no Excel and a water change say once a month?
This tank was set up in January and has been added to gradually since then. I've had anubias in there from the start.
Obviously the ones that were added earlier on are doing better because they've had time to establish themselves.
I don't know where they're coming from, but lately I've...
When my iPod used to mess up I found the Apple help pages no help at all. They just stated the obvious, which didn't really help.
I haven't had any experience when my iPod messes up big time, but I doubt it could be malware or anything like that. I don't think it would affect the iPod...
I'll look forward to seeing this in PFK, should be a good feature.
I agree that more people should definately approach their LFS about doing a display tank!
I never reaslised George was such a poser :lol:
I think a comfortable shoal for this tank would be 20 fish around 5cm.
For the larger fish, I don't know about Silver Dollars. You might have problems with the Angelfish/Tetras if you go for that option but have you thought about a Dwarf Cichlid? Something like Rams or Apistos.
