  1. Hi all, Does anyone have one of these, i have just brought one , but cant tell if it on or not, i cant see a led light but in the manual it states it has one but for the life of me i cant see it,. So either i am blind or the heater may not be working, if anyone has one could you tell me where the led light is please cheers
  2. No pump cover, don't want it to overheat, the open air line blow back under the pump possibly helps with heat also My house is split level built on a very steep block and the area where the pump is i can walk in easily but still fully enclosed from the outside elements
  3. Only downside is balancing the air pressure across the tanks as the lines to the tanks are different lengths but i just run a airline tap on each one at the tank to get the pressure i want the open line at the splitter at the pump i have faced back under the pump at the intake to try and help avoid dust getting it clogged up as it is under the house, upside i cant here the pump running at all
  4. I have one large pump under my house (LP 200 i think) which i run black irrigation tube, (the flex 4mm, same size as normal airline) to 8 different tanks all over my house, and a couple of lines into ponds outside I split it at the pump and have one line fully open to allow any back pressure to get out I use normal airline for the last section that actually goes into the tank though as i don't know if over time the black tube would leech anything into the water
  5. Sad day, sorry to hear about your loss
  6. Hi All, I am fixing up and old tank that did not have any lids. Where do you get the plastic angles/ strips that go over the side glass and hold the glass tops in place I don't want the little plastic clips you can get on ebay but full length strip I can cut to size Cheers
  7. as i mentioned in the other thread... Hi KL19 I run a Nautilus 2700 on a 4x2x2, no issues , keeps the tank clean and stable, its in my hallway and to be honest i don't hear it at all so quite enough. Easy to prime with the large "push button" on the top of the canister and hose diameter is quite large to allow the flow rate. Only thing is that it is quite a large canister filter and doesn't fit in my cabinet and I have to have it beside the tank not underneath, so maybe check out the measurements If you had the coin to spend I would suggest a Fluval FX5 (or 6) as they are my preferred canister filter, rock solid in my opinion. You might jag a second hand Fuval so maybe consider that also Hope this helps Cheers

  10. Super clean water will be the key no matter which way you go
  11. I like the idea for a quick check but I have never used them
  12. @BarrelTankz That is gold, great idea and certainly something different As @QldMick asked, How did you seal the timber ? and curious on what filter set up you are using Love to see some more pics of the whole job from the start if you have any
