  1. sick fish

    Nothing else in water to cause issues? Eg ammonia, fine filter floss.
  2. Hi, When I had my planted tank running properly I was dosing nitrates to stop them going to 0. Even then it was around 5 to 10ppm. I ran filters but rarely changed.
  3. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    Sharing a wafer with the bn catfish ... erm, not my fault they can’t see me tucked way over here under driftwood at back of tank ...
  4. Great news! Came good by himself or you think something you did helped?
  5. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    I see I haven’t updated this for a bit Shifted house, just missed cracking tank edge getting out door but got it set up again. Very simple setup in a rental.
  6. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    Almost suspect it’s the same culprit each week. And egged on by his/her mates outside the gravel vac. On the good news side starting to get the water changes sorted. And still tempting to swap substrate out over Easter.
  7. Co2 Reg - Solinoid Options AUS?

    Good - this one connects to a ph probe and has been going well for several years. Only big issue is no needle valve on it so basically breathe on valve to change flow rate unfortunately. I picked up a splitter from UK (CO2 art I think) and that has needle valves for both so much easier.
  8. Co2 Reg - Solinoid Options AUS?

    Pretty sure the one I got at the lfs in Perth is an ISTA.
  9. Nitrate Testing

    Don’t have a problem with them. For a hobby test kit, the boards are not over-run with people complaining about them (although they can stuff up).

  11. Hard to pick - is it on mouth / show up suddenly?
  12. 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).
