  1. Looks smick mate, looking forward to the project
  2. I got strip lengths of it from mega mitre 10 at beenleigh, they had multiple colors and sizes. Although this was a couple of years ago Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi all, Hoping someone maybe able to point me in the right direction. I am chasing a 25mm (1inch) low profile strainer to use in my drain setup. I have looked locally, on eBay, amazon and aliexpress. I have found them but they can’t ship to aus or shipping price is ridiculous. Cheapest I found is $28 including shipping from the US but would rather find it in aus/ locally. Appreciate any help Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes that is true I will discuss with the builder further. What size drains are you running and in what configuration if you have a similar size tank? Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks, I was sorta thinking the same thing but came to the conclusion with the correct spacing they should be good. With the base drilled do you have an overflow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Still looking for advice Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Morning all, I’m in the process of ordering a new 6x2x2.5h tank and I am deciding on filtration setup. I’m going to run an approx 250L sump but I also want to hard plumb a fx5 that I have for purely mechanical filtration. The main question I have is in regards to the drains, I am going to run 2 32mm drains for the sump and 1 32mm emergency drain. Then I would run 1 25mm drain for the fx5 about 100mm from the bottom. The returns would be 2 25mm spray bars in either top back corner. Can anyone see an issue with this or is there a better approach? Want no equipment inside the tank besides the bulkheads, elbows and spray bars. Thank you in advance Jacob
  8. Thanks mate, I have gotten hold of him via Facebook messenger and got the order sorted [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks all. Have been speaking to Micheal and was sounding positive. But unfortunately he had to pull out as he is having a break from tanks for a few months due to other workload. Still be looking for someone at stage, still waiting for a reply from elsewhere Thanks Jacob Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Anyone have a tank built by Michael Ellis? Good quality? Would you recommend? Still waiting to hear back from Dennison, spoke briefly last week and he said I would receive the quote the next day but nothing yet. Thanks
  11. Afternoon all, I am chasing a recommendation for a tank builder on the Gold Coast or that can deliver to the coast. Wanting to build a 184x61x75 (lwh) with sump 110x45x45 ( biggest I can fit) and holes drilled in the tank. I have attempted to contact Dennison (mary-Anne) a couple of times, aquarium3 and Micheal Ellis? But no reply. I have gotten quotes off aquariums alive, good quote but not exactly what I wanted. Nielsens marine ( gmaher I believe is builder), high price for only 10mm and therefore only 66cm tall. Aquarium shop quote okay but unsure of the quality. Can anyone recommend someone? Ideally I would like to get in contact with Dennison due to the quality I’ve seen of his work but we’ll see Thanks in advance Jacob Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thank you, Has already started healing well by the look of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Afternoon all, Noticed yesterday one of my 2 Elongatus Mphanga has a sore on its cheek. Wondering if anyone can possibly identify the cause and then a treatment if needed. He is the subdominant male and quite often gets chased by the dominant one but never noticed sores before. No other fish in the tank are showing signs of stress or injury. He is sooking up in the corner of the tank but comes out and feeds as normal. Will test water and post results when I can Thanks in advanced Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Too easy Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
