    Chihiros ac/dc adapter

    Ok this is strange.. so i decided to try the other ac adapter the original one, if i twist the output slightly in a specific way the light comes on and works as required. It has to be manipulated a certain way for it to get any power. this does not explain why my new one off amazon does not work...

    Chihiros ac/dc adapter

    Thanks for this, i've just tried it and unfortuently it does not work. It works with the controller, but the light does not come on. My guess is the light has broken, this is now my 3rd Chihiros 901.... anyone else having similar problems?

    Inlet Surface Skimmer from Hinterfeld - Flow Reduction?

    I stopped using mine as it would regulary take too much air into the filter and then in turn it would suck the flowpipe downwards causingit to stick underwater! Several poor fish got sucked in!

    surface film

    Not sure on dimensions but it's not big. I don't use ADA so can't comment. It's apparently down to poor plant health but my plants have been fine for the last year, so I don't think it's that. Could just be a build up of nutrients, co2 and anything else.
