    Aquael Glossy Tanks

    Sorry i cant really help @gingerbeer I don't have first hand experience, i did some googling on them though and they do seem pretty good What size are you looking at ?
  9. Hi @7ATE9 I am looking for something similar as well I am looking at either the Fluval Planted 3.0 or the Fluval aquasky 2.0, both fully programmable via Bluetooth on your phone (I need waterproof lights as they go in a hood) A few reviews complain about the shortness of the timing for sunrise and sunset, but hopefully with App upgrades Fluval may sort that out I haven't found anywhere that sells the Aquasky 2.0 in Aus yet though as everyone only stock the original version which doesn't have the Bluetooth (app)control but a fluval control So I am looking at the Fluval planted 3.0 and hoping they will make upgrades to the app But you wont find it in your price range Good luck

    Giant Pink Gourami – Billabong Bayou

    hiya @Grover65k I am the guilty party that started the other thread because i wanted to give it a go and knew nothing of it ... But I am a New South Welshman ... not from that funny place SA It does work to clear up the water and only takes a few days to do so and stays that way for some weeks, my ponds are chained together and probably total 2500 Ltrs ish max so a littel smaller that teh "Grande Olde Billabong" but i must state ....I do not have any fish in my ponds, i do have waterdragons and frogs though and they have not been effected But once you start you cant stop otherwise it goes back to a green boggy mess the guys at AOA stated in the other thread Cheers
  15. Hi all, I have blown a few lights/globes in two of my tanks, they are "6ft aqua one" and a "4ft Fluval" tank, both have the built in lights in the tank top cover and both have at least one blown globe. There are no glass tops in these tanks so it seems that moisture gets into the lighting and destroys it, i am sure that is probably a common problem. They are all the T8 style with supposedly waterproof fittings, who knows, it could be the ballast or something that actually goes on these but i am sure its moisture related ... I had used an normal 4ft led light from Blue Planet (i think it was Blue Planet anyway) on the 4ft Fluval in the cover (after the built in globes went) but moisture got to that too and stuffed it up. So what i am after is ideas on actual waterproof LED lighting , i dont want to go down the path of "Make My Led's" as i want to stay away from tubes of any sort and hopefully just go with complete waterproof units from a store, i f i need to i will fit a couple of braces to hold the lighting under the hood/cover if i need to Any ideas will be appreciated This isn't my tank but give you the idea of what i am talking about if you don't know the type Cheers
