#366932 8 Years Later And A New 6X2X2

Posted by Delapool on 02 December 2018 - 06:01 PM

Specs from the Eheim website are; Filter volume 18.00 l Container volume 23.00 l
In comparison the Fluval FX6 (The other filter I was considering) has a filter volume of 5.9L. So three times size comparison which is huge imo. Should also mean less frequent maintenance which is a plus for me haha.
Also forgot to mention I added the substrate and I did end up going for Garnet sand over regular white sand as you also recommended Jules  ;)

That’s great size! The aqua one I have is around that volume but no auto-prime or anything :(

Another couple before getting photo-bombed. Couldn’t get a really good shot but he wasn’t shifting for anything!

Parcel arrived! Always exciting in case they packed a fish tank by accident.

I think the number of the tunze refers to how many times it will get pulled apart :)

Bolbitis in foreground - not even sure where to start pruning it. Thrown out most java fern.

Fingers crossed that does it. Hopefully responds quickly to the MB.

#366187 July Meeting - Dr Richmond Loh - Cichlid Diseases.

It was great!

And my son said he learnt fish can get diarrhoea so something for everyone [emoji51]

(My goodness though - such a range of possible causes - was great to see a vet’s experience).

#366100 Need Advice On A Big Canister Filter

Posted by Delapool on 21 June 2018 - 10:06 PM

Ive got the 2700 which has been generally pretty good. Was the biggest I could fit in cupboard. Mine has a UV unit which I consider a waste of space in a canister filter and on the previous one rusted out.

Good news is this plant is now staying in the pot. Bad news is there is one leaf left. Roll on next auction I think :)

You should invest in a dosing pump and you wont have to worry about dosing ferts.
I have been thinking about doing that but i enjoy the daily "hello fishies!" routine, especially with the baby angelfish I just picked up on the weekend. So cute!

Kind of tempting :)

Lol, I do like angelfish - always up to something and not hiding away.

The yoyo loaches are great but always off chasing their tail or something.

Looking good! Nice to see another build thread.

Out of interest - is it on wooden flooring? Been looking at houses.
