    Recommended fish?

    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 'Celestichthys erythromicrons' Not where I could locate the second option from though as I have not seen those in any stores I've been in. I decided to...

    Recommended fish?

    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 to go in a 50L - ideally something small that I can have 10 or 12 of... Nothing that likes to jump as the tank is open top... Any recommendations would...

    Ecotech Radion XR15w Freshwater LED

    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 though, as control over it from the iPad would be handy.
  18. Gary Nelson

    Ecotech Radion XR15w Freshwater LED

    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 and the mount bracket, but no FW version :(

    Ecotech Radion XR15w Freshwater LED

    A very interesting read so far! are these in the UK yet?
  20. Gary Nelson

    Pop- up Nightmare!

    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 the fix - this should then remove the spyware you have.... It's worth keeping Spybot on and running every month or so for good house keeping on your PC

    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 doors? Looking forward to watching this one develop :thumbup:

    My new iwagumi

    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 the light spread from the open top - I'm just not sure how you would make it to stop condensation running down the outside of the glass :( Sent from...

    Melanotaenia praecox Male/Females

    Yes they are great fish, one of my favourite - look great in a planted tank too when they mature :thumbup:
  24. Gary Nelson

    Melanotaenia praecox Male/Females

    I would say they are all females, sometimes females can have a orange-ish tinge, where as males have a distinct red.

    Some Lighting Advice Needed Please

    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.

    Hi everyone, 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 and work have been very busy, I have just not got around to starting this... hence why I have not been on UKAPS much either :( This scape is in my TMC...

    Messed up my Macro mix, how to proceed...

    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 me, then I'd just stick with what you have and just dose a smaller amount.
  49. Gary Nelson

    Messed up my Macro mix, how to proceed...

    Double the water amount into what you have and have the next lot ready mixed :)

    Unknow white stuff on twinstar nano

    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 lime scale start to bubble and dissolve straight the way, give it a couple of hours and then just rinse it well under the tap.... Job done :)
  52. Gary Nelson

    Unknow white stuff on twinstar nano

    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 normally do mine every two months or so.

    Calling All Petrolheads

    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 going to make that much difference... It does make it smoother though and more lively.... But the V6 sound is still the best!

    George's 65cm Natural Aquario

    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 goes over the edge of the tank? Is it plastic or glass?
  99. Gary Nelson

    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.
