  7. DIY Inline Heater

    oil seal from an bearing and oil seal wholesaler. just a standard oil seal, they hold oil and hydraulic fluid in so they can hold water just as well. all you need to do is take it down there and they should be able to measure out the ID / OD and find a fit for you.

    i still watch a short movie of it every now and then, lol
  10. Pond canister on aquarium

    in the second pic the pump is dead centre of the tank. was there while I was waiting for the new amphibious pump to turn up. I had bulkheads drilled in both corners of the tank. I later added SS strainers and covered them with the white rocks seen in last pic. you may be able to see that I have a spray bar across the whole tank also fitted with bulkheads through the rear corners of each side of the tank.
  11. Pond canister on aquarium

    I had a pond one claritec (biggest version) on a 6x2x2 and later installed it on a 8x2x2.5 and I had no issue with it. actually never had such clear water. pros are if the pump dies you can just replace the pump, better water flow and far more filter media. cons would be plumbing fittings will cost you fair few $$$ as you need to buy 2 - 4 ball taps and screw joints so you can remove the canister from the pipe work for cleaning as well as the pump. the pump would use a bit more watts but you get higher flow. but if you had a sump its the same thing isn't it? you will have to find an amphibious pump other wise you will have a large pump in your display.
  12. Because i just bought these fish a template is sort of not going to provide anything. I just bought these 2 yellows and i got them home i noticed they have redness to them. (Been awake sinse 4am working hard, my bad for not checking) One has more of a lesion on the gill cover and the other has a streak in the tail. Does any one know what it could be? Im hoping its just bacterial / fungal. Only done a salt bath and keeping in a quarantine i just set up with a sponge from another tank until further improvement and treatment.

    did you think about what type of plumbing is involved inside the unit? ie copper pipe... i am thinking about these types of units and am worried about this
  15. Dilemma as to which fish to add

    as for algae on your feature. i dont think you will be able to beat it unless you tried barley straw extract or just got a bail of it and soaked some in your pond. the barely has something in it that slows algae growth.
