  2. Cold snap up here in Mackay as well. Will have to polish up the heater and install with the water change today.
  3. Yeah, i cant see why it wont work. wouldn't even have to be continuous. just a 100mm piece every half metre or so. I'm thinking of the double side stick on stuff. ( if that makes any sense) Cheers. hope ya get it sorted.
  4. I just hope the whole lockdown thing will bring a bit of life back to this forum. That alone will do wonders for the hobby. I"m a bit isolated up her and learnt most of the basics through this site. Would be great to see it busy again. Brendan
  5. Rule of thumb ...... You should be looking to turn your total water volume over 6 to 8 times every hour. ;-)

  7. 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
  8. 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

  10. # 3. But could do with a heap of improvements in my humble opinion.
  11. I used black contact on mine. Found it way easier than messy paint.
