  19. from what i can tell when runing a topmount sump most people put the pump in the ibc.. if this is right, what do u do to stop all the crap (literally) from going in the pump?? or doesnt it matter?? pics would be grate, cheers
  20. o.k got off my *** does this look o.k (runing 2x 4foot grow out tanks approx 400L) fine filter in s bend so easy to replace
  21. sorry dont have pick ,but basic 2 foot sump,single s bend .. allready have AOA 50mm thick sponge,2 bag high stacked noodles (so 4 bags) then 50mm thick sponge.. was hoping 2layers of filter mat in the 100mm wide s bend,,(would i still get normal flow being in top of s bend)... thanks for help guys
  22. seen a few sumps with fine filter mat/dacron as the first media for the water to pass thru,, i guess because u can clean or replace that easier being on top without removing all the noodles/sponges. just wanted to ask do the noodles and stuff below still work as efficient with such clean water passing thru?
  23. iredescent blue fins with bright red spots,, "was from a forum breeder" cant beleive how quickly the body goes black when in defence, one of my fav fish
  24. 7cm young male, so hard to get a pic as he is a absolute nutter!! turns full black at feeding time..
