  2. Hard to pick - is it on mouth / show up suddenly?
  3. As far as I know CO2 droppers don’t respond to liquid carbon products. From memory these can break down to CO2 but imo it’s a small amount and more value as algaecide. If you have enough carbon (really another fert) would depend on how strong your lights are (ie how much par you are getting at substrate).
  4. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    Picked up an electrical useage meter. Planning to try on weekend and see how bad it is. See if any real high useage pieces of equipment.
  5. Frontosa Moba tank

    Very nice [emoji106]

    Pretty camera shy but here we go.

    Many thanks for the reply - a work in progress
  8. I found with a 4ft tank that having a CO2 outlet at one end wasn’t enough. Pearling was only going on for two thirds of tank. Added CO2 outlet at other end and doing a lot better. I’ve been happy with the CO2 probe cutoff as well. Much safer on fish but still managed to gas a few.

    I confess I think I over-stocked the tank on these spanner barbs. Looked much smaller in shop... Very stocky, actually dwarf the angelfish a bit. And if the tank was a boat, they would be tipping it to one side as they rush to follow anyone coming into the room. They kind of remind me of goldfish but I think goldfish have more manners.

    Ninja shrimp photos (the iPhone was struggling). Bit more colour and maybe some banding. Very tiny but very busy!
  12. Do they seperate off from the school or anything before hand? I wonder if it could be viral? (Can’t find it but thought the carp virus builds up, then suddenly takes off, with mortality shortly after).
  13. Black Beard Algae

    Same for me - CO2 doesn’t make a difference. I’ve had BBA growing on the CO2 diffuser quite happily. Lighting and type would be my first check. As above on H2O2 on spot injection. (Check websites for dosing and not to be over-dosed and also some plants hate it).
