    Jungle Island biotope

    Wow, you will definitely have enough circulation with two biomaster 600s! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    NA style 45f

    3 month update I thought I would post a quick update to show people how this aquarium has progressed over the last three months. Overall this tank has done very well and the plants have grown in nicely. I added some hygrophila pinnatifida later on. I love this plant and have been encouraging...

    Cautionary Tales from an Idiot

    They are referring to the flow rate listed on the filter. I think you'll find the actual flow rate is significantly less (approximately half what is advertised) when the filter is filled up. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Chihiros WRGB2 height

    Have a look on Ebay, there is a seller selling brand new chihiros lights. Not if they have exactly the model you're after. Otherwise you can buy them on Aliexpress - with long shipping time and likely customs charges. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Floating plants not healthy

    Likely a lack of nutrients rather than co2 related as it will have an unlimited supply of co2 from the air. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Foraging for hardscape materials

    Thanks. It looks very nice, a lot like manzanita. The outer layer has started to decompose so I'm going scrape it off. Hopefully the gamble pays off Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Foraging for hardscape materials

    I've been foraging for dead branches in a local woodland and have come across what I thought (correct me if I'm wrong) is an oak tree with some cut branches. There were some dead branches beneath it. Do these look like dead oak branches to you? I've read that oak is an excellent choice for...

    Black lava rock hardscape

    Obviously not what you want to here but in my opinion rummy-nose need more swimming room than a 60p provides.

    First attempt

    I think it could benefit from one or two larger pieces of wood. A larger piece of wood and fewer small pieces will make for a more impactful scape imo. Lots of smaller pieces can be distracting and won't create the drama of a larger piece. You may even want some of the wood protruding, which...

    90x45x45 medium tech :)

    The rising TDS is also due to evaporation - the salts stay in the water. Some TDS rise is therefore unavoidable Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kessil Knock off

    No experience with that specific model but I can say that I am very pleased with the smaller LED they make (asta 20). Are they as good as kessils? I highly doubt it, but I think they are much better value. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Running a hardscaped tank without planting

    You are right that the soil may leach ammonia and nutrients that would normally boost the plant grow at the start after planting. Though I don’t suspect the soil’s nutrients would be noticeable depleted in a few weeks with not plants up-taking them. Large water changes may be a good idea...

    First month of a new aquascape

    I think that is the general advice. Helps to reduce organics and so prevent algae when you start the tank especially if you have high lighting - high tech. If your tank is low tech then I think it is less necessary/appropriate Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fluval spec 19 first tank

    Scape looks great! [emoji106] The sloped substrate looks about right. It should be quite deep at the back. My only suggestion would be that the hardscape, particularly the wood, seems slightly too small for the tank. Following along... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
