    Adam's (Tony's old) 5ft Monster tank

    So this is Tony Swinney's old 'Triassic Hollow' tank. He was giving it away and I just couldn't say no. The plan is to use this as a room divider between what is our lounge and the kids playroom. The tank is 152.5cm x 60cm x 60cm (60'x24'x24') somewhere in the region of 549l. The tank is...

    Going away for a while? These could be useful then

    I found these in Primark and as they only cost £1 I thought they were a bit of a bargain. You get 3 bottles (2 larger and 1 smaller), a small screw lid pot and a funnel. I'll be using them when I go away for a few days soon and hopefully the in laws can't get it wrong and put the wrong...

    New ( to me ) tank coming tomorrow

    I'm picking up a Fluval Roma 240 compete with 305 filter and a heater tomorrow night, bought very cheaply through parentsbay or something on Facebook. My wife found it and showed it to me because it was so cheap, £50 for the lot! No cabinet with it though so I'll be building one. The best bit...

    60cm light over 80cm tank?

    As per topic title really. I've got an 80cm tank that I'll be setting up soon to replace my current 60cm. I'm using an APS 60cm 2x24w HOT5 light unit currently, and just wondered if I would be ok using this light over the 80cm? It will be suspended over the centre of the tank, and I will be...

    Heater failure = Gutted!

    I've just moved house last weekend, and I've gone back over to my old house today to sort out my tanks and get them moved before handing the keys back this Friday. As soon as I walked into the house I was hit by a nasty rotten water smell, and as soon as I looked into my Jewel Vision 180 in the...

    Tetratec EX700 with Hydor ETH and UP inline atomiser?

    Will I be ok to run both the inline heater and atomiser on the filter inlet pipe, or is it best to run the heater on the outlet and atomiser on the inlet?

    Flow around the tank and drop checker

    Tank : Juwel Vision 180 Now you'll have to excuse my rather poor little sketch, I've just knocked it up on my iPad. The water is pushed diagonally from left to right across the top of the tank from the Fluval 205, and diagonally down through the tank from right to left from the Tetratec. I...

    Standard T8's good enough?

    Hi guys I've just introduced myself in the newbie section, see thread http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=20471 Now my Vision 180 tank is one of the older models fitted with the T8 tubes instead of the newer T5's. I have fitted reflectors and the lighting has improved as you'd expect...
