    Bottle o rum

    The best stuff to use is pond sealer, I use it when making 3D back grounds and shouldn't effect the appearance.
  3. Hey Tim do u still hv ur 397 for sale I'm very interested if u can get back to me on 0422023101 that would be great thanks mate

  4. No not at the minute in the middle of moving hopefully they will produce this year.

  5. Hi mate, I'm from Sydney and was wondering if you have any Uaru juvies available ?

    Regards, mark.

  6. It has be only been running 4 months and I wont atempt to grow young in their the only way to grow Discus proper is BB and 100% plus water changes for 12 months and lots of good food. Aiming to have around the mid teens of Discus in their atm 5.
  7. Just some quick pictures when I fitted the Co2 Beencees supplied great unit fast delivery and well priced. I will up date the pictures as the work in progrees develops.
  8. Awsome thanks. I will stay away from the larger bottles then.
  9. Thanks all for your replies that has answered alot. I have an account with BOC and was going to share the bottle with my home brew kegs too :-). Once I get it set up I will be monitoring the O2 levels with my D/o meter to make sure they stay up in acceptable %. I know the lights are 10,000 K x 4 1 out of the 4 is a Red White and blue LED i think they are around 180 led per 4' light. For where I want the grown cover I will see may need a LED spot. What difusers work best from what you have seen? Thanks for the feed back so fast.
  10. Hi just after some advice on what sort of systems work best and value for money to keep a large 8 x 2 x 2.5 planted comunity tank. I am currently running a ista disposible on it atm for the intrume till I dicide what will work best. The tank has a sump filter too so would the Co2 be as effective difused directly in the sump? I am running 4 x 4ft LED 10,000k seems to be performing better than the T5 HO 2x twin 3ft fixtures. I am hoping to grow some ground cover plants but unsure wether it will be acheivable being 2.5ft tall? Also have the microbe-lift alive substrate. Any coments more than welcome I haven't spent a lot of time with the planted tanks mostly breeding discus.

    discus products necessary?

    I have 60 tanks and over half are Discus I got 10 pairs and 4 lots of young atm. You need to decide what you are trying to acheive 1st. Do you just want them for display? If yes buy adults or close to they are more forgiving than trying to grow young. As for all the buffers and trace I wouldn't waste your money. Discus keep them in water 28 - 30. PH isn't too much of a problem in general I would keep it bellow 8 and above 6. Your filtration is important as well as good food discus need some animal meat so beef heart mix works great for that, PM if your interested in some really good beef heart in blister packs my mate has been making it for 30 years and just recently got the blister machine. Freeze dried black worm is also good and good quality dry granuals work to fill the gaps when growing them. I would aim with a 25% water change at least once or twice a week on a tank around 300 ltrs upwasrd if smaller you need to do more. Rule that is normally followed for stocking levels is 1 discus per 38 liters. Minimum group size 6. I would keep the ratio to 1 to 30ltrs if you don't want to do as many water changes. There are so many varying factors so if you post your size of tank and goals trying to be acheived I can help further.

    Substrate

    Very good info and has answered the question I was just about to asked but thought I better look 1st :-). I am about to set up my 8ft x 20" x 30" and just got 12 bags of microbe-lift alive substrate as I have had great results in the past with that, but to fill the whole base 2" thick in that I would need 24 bags!
