  1. Hi all, I've been making the house quite the aquarium lately... All freshwater tropical and brackish so far though. But I am looking at making a special type of tank for purely Box Jellyfish and/or Irukandji for something different. Is there any must do's with keeping them, special filtration, etc? I'm thinking a large Perspex/Acrylic tube but not sure about what sort of filtration they need or works with them and if they are hard to keep? I'm pretty sure I'll only be able to keep either Box Jellyfish or Irukandji and not the two together but is it possible to do so? I know I need proper UV lights too but that also makes them look so awesome in a tank!!! Any advice with keeping them?

  6. Hey guys these are the led light boxes ive started building, these photos are for a 10x4 tank so they are 3 meters long, they can be made any size ready for you to add your adhesive led strips, cheap alternative for lighting. great for big tanks as you cant buy lights this big. also great for your breeding racks as its cheap on power and you can light more then one tank with one light box. if your interested pm me , they go for 30 bucks with open ends and 55 dollars each with the ends capped. anyways heres some pics, great price guys considering its industrial kitchen grade stainless steel.
  7. hahaha - love it thanks guys, glad im one of only a select few with the good sense to get the little breeder box :-) I have noticed though, my shrimp that i have trialled in it so far, have all found escape routes back into the main tank. I have the little plastic return gate in place, but wondering if there is a ss mesh option out there to stop escapees? sean
  8. We are trialing a new chat system to see what members think. Webmaster has been busy setting this up and testing this for a while along with mods and it seems stable. The system is set up so that it is not visible to any member with less than 10 posts, and also not visible to members with less than 2 posts within the last week. The new chat box is on the bottom of the forum page. there is a black arrow on the top right side that will take the page full size. Enjoy and let us know your thoughts.

  23. Title sums it up.... Ive got a styro box, one of those sealed one's with the lid. Seen them at the auctions. Is it safe to transport fish? I'm aware that I'll still have to ensure the fish's environment stays comfortable (space, temp, handling etc) but in terms of contamination from the polyurethane? I know its terrible for our lungs but is it ok for them? Cheers Henzo
  24. Can someone help me out here. I bought an over-flow box some time ago. It has twin 25mm return pipes. Does anyone one what the flow rate would be? So i can match pump rate. Thank You
  25. Hey all. Been talking about it for a while, But finally Im putting it up. This is an Overflow box I have made recently. Ive been through a couple of versions, Ive settled on this one as it is the Easiest, Most Efficient, and CHEAPEST one to make. I tend to Ramble on and on when I write stuff like this, So im just going to let the photos do the talking with a couple of Notes here and there. More than happy to answer any questions that you may have. This is not your usual Overflow Box, with a surface skimmer inside, I have made one of these but its not quite perfect yet, will post when I finish it. This box will actually take water for the bottom or middle of your tank, much like a cannister or external filter would, This has its pros and cons, you be the judge. Here we go... Materials List, 1 plastic container (tupperware or similar) I spent ages trying to find something the right size and shape for this project, Found these containers at Target for $5-6, used them on all my overflows so far. 25mm PVC pipe. You will probable use between 2-3 meters over the project. Taking into account a bit of wastage/adjustments. 2 25mm Sleeves or Joins 2 25mm Endcaps thats it :) oops. Silicon too Take your container and drill the necesarry holes, my drill bit was almost perfect size, was a snug fit, almost water tight without a seal. Try to get the pipes as close to the corners as possible, there will be a lot of pipe in this little container. Place the overflow box where it is going to be installed, and mark where you want your water level on the container. (the black texta) The stand pipes will come up to this point as they are the factor that determines the water level of the whole system. If the level in the tank drops bellow this point the syphon will stop. NOTE!!!! You must have an anti syphon hole drilled in your return!!! you should anyway but you MUST for this. drill it at the operating water level or JUST below. That way when your power shuts off, it wont flow back into sump, and then the overflow box will control how low it can drop Cut the stand pipes to this length, I usually do one at the height I need and the second is purely of emergency overflow, However I made them both the Same for this one, Up to you. I Used the sleeve Joins at this point for 2 reasons. Easier to get a good seal with the silicon, and Also it makes plumbing the box later easier. Put your pipes into position and Silicon them into place, make sure its a nice watertight seal. Silicon the Overflow Box to the outside of the tank where it is to be used. I used a piece of ply and a clamp to get even pressure. Leave the Silicon to dry/cure for 24 hours. If you haven't seen it already this is how youBend PVC. Only this time it is 25mm PVC and much longer on one end. The idea is to get it to touch the bottom of the tank, then come up and bend snuggly over the edge, and then come down and touch the bottom of the overflow box. I did this by making it longer than it needed to be and trimming it back untill it fit perfectly. Testing for size. Use a piece of airline to suck out the air and start the syphon, once started it should never break Second pipe, same deal Overflow in Action, There is room for a 3rd pipe if you need the extra flow. But im running a 2200lph pump with a max Head of 1.6M and it handles it EASILY. These pics are for the fellow Penny pinchers out there :). My DIY wet/dry filter and sump. Wet dry is a hard plastic bucket with drip trays made from the bottom 10cm of cheap buckets from bunnings, filter wool from spot light, and then a mix of BioBalls, GutterGuard. I plan to get some Matrix for the bottom of the bucket which always stays submerged. Sump is actually empty aside from heater and pump, got a couple of BN living down in there. I also run any spare sponge filters in there, in case of emergency. Hope someone finds this usefull. Feel free to ask any questions. Cheers guys Jesse
