    Glosso Flowers

It was covered with a piece of perspex simply to stop it getting any more wet than it was.. a few days later I noticed Acicularis and glosso growing, so I swapped the lid for another old tub simply...

    Aquatic Magic Regulators

    One of my regulators turned up today, but I have a silly question. How do I adjust the main pressure? The big nut of the front? Or is it set at a preset pressure with fine adjustment from the needle valve? Thanks! [edit] Or do I need a bottle with a separate tap on it?
