I've got some spare parts you can have for postage, I'll email you once I get to where my stuff is. i've got a diffuser with built in drop checker you can have for a few quid.

I reckon you can save even more money on the regulator too using a welding reg and a needle valve, supercoley would be the one to ask.

I realy want to go high tec lol, Can i realy get the look i want low tec? Jungle? :crazy:

Mines a jungle, albeit i started of high tech lol. It will just take longer thats all.

KNO3 35g > 500ml > 40ml x1 per week
KH2PO4 5g > 500ml > 40ml x1 per week
Trace 25g > 500ml > 40ml x1 per week

Usually done on a sunday/ monday but it doesnt matter when really.

50% water change per month.

When it was high tech, change the doses to x3 per week & water change to 50% weekly.

trust me, it is all down hill! steves right, i started with a 120L, then went to 240L and now a bigger one is 'curing' courtesy of Aquariums ltd. It starts getting really expensive when substrate alone is costing over £100 :lol:
all this for some fish eh? :D

You think that's bad......
Me my girlfriend and our best friend are planing on moving out in november of this year, and im stripping down my 600l with a view to set that up as a low tech iwagumi style scape..... Im dreading that substrate bill :rolleyes:

Yup. all the fixtures are the same so that fittings are universal and avoid dangers situations like cross threading or lose fits.
