  1. Each of the two smaller compartments are 120 mm wide each. 1st chamber is approx 370 mm square. Sump is 4'x15"x18" I didn't put a bubble trap in because i believe they are unnecessary . If you look at the sump pics thread in the DIY section I have a step by step post starting at the bottom of page two. Cheers
  2. I personally would lose the bubble trap and move the baffle so that the chambers are equidistant . Then able to fit more (different) media in as the water flows "up" one chamber and "down" the other. Are you using some sort of water spreader where it enters the sump ? Have a look here. http://www.qldaf.com/topic/18432-your-sump-pics-here/page/2/ I have post starting toward the bottom of the page showing my sum. I has been running non stop for 8 years now with absolutely zero issues . Not saying my ways the only way, but it works well for me. Cheers

  4. # 3. But could do with a heap of improvements in my humble opinion.
  5. I used black contact on mine. Found it way easier than messy paint.
  6. Clean with Acetone, Metho is next best. Then roll, spray, brush ya blue black whatever. Usually 2 -4 coats. Fill with water, add fish and enjoy. Cheers
  7. This sounds like good advice to me. I personally use Jager 300w around my system. never had an issue with them. Though i am in Nth QLD so winter is not a real big issue. Cheers

  9. Realize this an ole post , but 12 mm is fine in my book. I have same dimensions in 10mm for 10 years now , no problem. However, mine is braced. not sure what u mean by braceless design. Brendan
  10. 40 % twice a week . Worked for me the last 20 years regardless what fish im keeping. ( freshwater) Brendan

  12. Thanks everyone for comments. Think i'm gunna give it a go . As above, transition away from Discus. Cheers
  13. Just wondering, does anybody here keep Angels and Discus together ? I have decided to move away from Discus as the expense v the loss rate is getting me down. Don't want to offload my 4 current healthy long term discus, just want to add 4 - 5 angel fish with them. 130 gal / 500 lt sumped display system also contains a large Pleco an 6 large loaches which are no concern to the current discus population. Would like to hear of any experiences. Cheers . Brendan
