  8. Hey guys I just got a new tank, looking at making this one a dutch scape! Specs: 58L 30D 41H Light: 18w GroLux Substrate: Amazonia Aquasoil Filters: Currently a 300lph HOB unit, also have a tiny 150lph internal, 380lph internal with spray bar and some other bigger filters... Fauna: 1x Honey Gourami, 1x Ottocinclus, bunch of Pacific blue eyes, bunch of red cherry shrimp and snails....ugh. Flora: HM, Ambulia, Java Moss, not sure on these but im guessing Ludwigia Repens and Hygrophila Polysperma C02: DIY Currently this is all running in my current 2ft (not as tall) which I will be replacing with the new tank. I am looking at getting some red plants (suggestions???) and was wondering if my lighting will be enough. Also does anyone have any suggestions for increasing the "depth" of soil at the back of the tank? (rather than using the precious aquasoil, using sand or rocks or something to add height) My 2 favorite shots of my current setup
  9. I have finally got around to reposting the tank build after losing the thread a while back. So, here is my journal for my 6ft L x 2ft W x 700mm H with custom made stand and sump!

Thanks for all you help

  14. Im wondering setting up my 2ft cube tank as marine With this size tank, whats the cons of changing it to marine. Plan to just put a lion fish or some nemo/clown fish. Tank is an aquaone. I also dont have a chiller/skimmer yet if i decide to change now, so i need to assess cost if it is worthwhile to change.
  15. Ok I've got a problem I've got a 4ft quad t5 light but I'm setting up a 2ft tank...what do I do ??? Sell it ? Use it ?
  16. Here's my Monster fish community which I decommissioned early this year. Too bad I only can have one big tank, or else I would still keep them There are several Full-tank shots from different stages of the tank.. The tank: The ex-fishes: Polypterus endlicheri endlicheri (Wild from the Guinea) Polypterus endlicheri congicus (Wild)
  17. I decided to redo this. Substrate: Pool filter Sand Background: DIY foam Filter: Eheim Pro 2224 Tank is unheated and currently unstocked, not sure what to put in it at this stage
  18. After seeing the "New fry culling machine" thread it got me thinking. Is it possible to get something that will eat fry (guppy, cherry and possibly bn) that fits into a 2ft tank? :confused: I've got a spare one and don't have any room for a bigger tank. I was hoping for 2-3 fish, but a single fish is fine. I was also considering something like a cray but didn't think it would be able to get the guppy fry. I'm hoping for something that looks nice and is easy to look after. I think it sounds like i'm asking for allot but i figure the more i detail the easier it might be for advice. Thanks
  19. Hey guys, I have a spare 2fter tank, looking to breed somthing in it, got any idears? Would any africans suit or is it too small? I have never kept them before. Or I might put a small colony of corys in there, or some fancy guppies.
  20. my 2 2fts new 2ft i got off tk_10 scubbed up nice and diy bunnings stand 20 d0llars
  21. Look at what some people do. Check it out: FISH TANK 2FT | eBay If they're not already, I think they'll be dead before the auction is complete. If anyone lives nearby (Noosa) you should go rescue this Oscar and maybe even his little Convict buddy.
  22. Hi I am new to this forum after been reading it for a while and researching the net. Ever since I was little my family have had aquariums and I absolutely love it. Me and my husband have been lucky and got ahold of a 6ft by 2ft aquarium for nothing, but think it might need to be re siliconed. Is this something we should do ourselves or get a glass person to do? I am not even sure where to start. We both want something not to difficult to take care of but clean and colourful. With such a large tank, what fishes suits best together? I appreciate all tips and hints. Thank you so much. Emma
  23. Hi, I'm adding yet another fishtank to the collection, this one being a small 2ft (70 litre) tank for the fry. Can anyone recommend a filter for it? The more I google the more confused I get! Internal filter? Cannister filter? Over the side filter? Yikes! The 3 other tanks have cannister filters (they're 4ft, 4ft and 6ft). I appreciate your comments, thank you
  24. Hi guys, Just wondering what peoples opinions are, on glass thickness on a 2ft cube? I know a general rule of thumb is if it's 2ft high, use 10mm glass. But I'm just wondering if that is necessary considering a 2ft cube only holds approx. 200L of water? Is 6mm glass enough? Thanks, Beau.
