    Any expiry date on a laboratory prepared 4dkh solution

    Sealed it should be fine. Open to the atmosphere, the formation of carbonic acid may have an effect on the kh. As said above its cheap but also its just one of your tools to monitor CO2 levels so do not stress

    so far 1 massive dissapointment . happier now

    They do look normal but i tend to steer clear on postal orders as iv been disappointed in the past, i know its not realistic for some. I am lucky enough to live near the shop and the stock is amazing, always satisfied

    Considering moving spray bar to back of tank.

    If you make a DIY spray bar. Ensure the area of the holes you drill are equal to or greater than the area on the original filter pipe. If you do not it will restrict your flow. I did a custom bar. Its works a treat, get CO2 bubbles everywhere.

    the up atomisers are excellent.

    How to properly clean dragon stones

    I soaked mine then scrubbed with a brush (you wont get every last bit of mud) I like the staining also, more interesting :)

    trying to eradicate a dead spot

    The custom spray bar won't reduce flow providing the area of the outlet holes you drill are equal to or greater than the area of the filter piping. I make a custom one last week. Works an absolute treat. Very effective distribution

    EI Dosing Issues

    You could buy a cheap pvc pipe and make a custom spray bar the length of the tank. Very cheap.

    Dechlorinator choice

    It does look like sodium thiosulfate will remove chloramine but will produce Ammonia and HCl as a product. The more i read the more i want a RO unit :P I wonder if the retail product have anything else in them.

    Dechlorinator choice

    monochloramine could affect fish in low concentrations. Might get away with it normally but if the water company boost the dose.....

    Eheim 2260 - Custom Intake & Spray Bar

    Inspired me too. I struggled to get anything but white pvc. So I bought 1m of 16mm eheim ridigd tubing from the net. So I will get the set up sorted on the horrible white tube before I drill the proper stuff!

    Interesting read. I seem to have gone the other way (low-->high tech), and your tank given me some excellent ideas for my new tank. Looking forward to see what you can do with a basic setup :) thanks

    Had that problem too. Drilled my spray bar to stop it creating a tornado in the tank, now the flow is not great thanks to massive swords :P
