    IAPLC 2018

    Ideally I would add all the UKAPS members to this list too (I've picked all the UK ones as we are UK based) as we are a worldwide community but as I've not been on here for a while I have lost track of who is who. If someone wants to pick out the UKAPS members from the list and add them on here...

    Minnow Island

    Having moved about 8 months ago now I've finally got round to setting up another tank. I pretty much only have one space for it and that is in the fireplace. The space itself has dictated many of my choices like tank, stand and filter. I would like to have got an Aquascaper 600 to benefit from...

    Personally I would use a complete fert like Neutro+ rather than Neutro T but having said that, if the tank is doing well why change it?

    Low Tech Kitchen Shrimp Tank

    Hi All, A few months ago I set up a 19l P@H Aquarium to house a few snails for my 3 year old son who is fascinated with them. Back in Feb I had to move so the tank also became home for some RCS and my one remaining CRS from my other shrimp tank. The tank was thrown together with bits and...

    I do what you have already done. Spray with soapy water. Just stay on top of it. You can buy sticky strips to go around the base of the tree.

    Setting Up, Suggestions Please

    What size of aquarium are you looking to use? Tropica or ADA substrate will both do a great job.
  34. Andy D

    What am I doing wrong? At wits end

    I would look to move the drop checker nearer to the substrate and see how it reads. I suspect the issue lies with circulation and the CO2/nutrients not getting to the plants. I would look to adjust the output from the filter to point away from the surface (which is most likely speeding up the...

    The tanks are going well. Very slow growth but that is to be expected. I am having to move at the end of this month so the Betta tank is coming down and maybe the shrimp tank too until I can be sure where they will be going at the new address. The filters do a good job but they are not being...

    Starting over - liquid CO2

    If you take a look at THIS site and identify the algae you had it will give you a good idea of what the problem was. If you can also list things like tank/lighting/filter specs, cleaning regime, fert dosing regime etc it will help identify where it may have been going wrong.

    leaves as a substrate cap

    Don't expect them too either. I have used oak leaves a lot and they release hardly any tannins (if any at all). They do take ages to break down as well which I like. If you want a nice tint then alder cones work well. Indian almond leaves also do a great job.

    My Low Tech Scapers Tanks

    If I didn't have shrimp in the tank already I would just drain it and then use the DSM to attach the moss. This may still be the best option. The pain with this is going to be getting the shrimp out and keeping them somewhere else. I could remove the rocks but I am slightly reluctant as I just...
