  1. I think I have some 999A in the shed. I'll give that a go Thanks
  2. Hi everyone, Just wondering which silicon (silastic) is safe to use on tanks etc. I have a few repairs/mod's to do but don't want to harm the fish when they go back in. Rob

  4. Thanks guys. I got my hands on a 1000lt caged tank and am dosing as we speak.
  5. Just moved house and am now on trickle fed tanks instead of mains pressure. Did a water test and the gh & kh low. I've been told to use bicarb and rock salt to increase but not sure of the amounts to use. I'll be treating 1000lts at a time. Also is pool salt ok to use? Rob
  6. On behalf of all electrical contractors, we are sorry for dropping your power out. As for blackouts, you'll have to talk to good ol' mother nature.
  7. My tanks are in the garage which doesn't have room heating and it sits around 22c at night. Not sure if it has insulation in the roof/walls but am surprised by how much heat it hold. You might find if you stop any drafts or ways the cold air can get in, the temp will rise.
  8. Hi everyone. I'm just after abit of advice on the what tank size is best suited for breeding Maingano and Saulosi. I currently have a number of males and female of both spread around a few different tanks and they have been breeding occasionally (Mainly due to shifting house) but now the roots are down for a while I want to up the output so to speak. So just looking to see if anyone has has better success with different size tanks and breeding numbers per tank. Rob

  11. If you put a tee on the output side of the pump with a valve you can recirculate the water in the sump. Doing this will reduce the flowrate going into the tank. Rob

  13. Is your hot water on a seperate meter. You should have 2 minimum. 1 for hw and 1 for normal tarrif. If not you dont have offpeak hw. If your meters are in the same board as your circuit breakers, turn everything off but your main switch. Look to see if meters are spinning (little disk inside). They shouldn't be. Turn one circuit breaker on and watch the meter. If there is a big current draw the disk will spin fast. If only a small current draw then it will spin slow. Turn it off then try the next circuit breaker. Do for each circuit breaker and watch the meter each time. You will narrow it down to the one circuit. Just remember, if you do have off peak for your hot water, it may not be time for it to be on (it's controlled by energex) or it may not be cold enough for the thermerstat to switch on. Rob
  14. For something to be run on off peak it MUST be hardwired. Therefore if your pool/spa pump plugs in it won't be on off peak. Rob
  15. Forgot to add, check the meter reading is correct. Just check the numbers on the bill is close to what's on your meter. They do make mistakes Rob
