  1. My pond is covered in duckweed and thinking that might use a few africans over summer to keep it under control. Just wondering what would be the hardiest duckweed eating africans to get. Already have some platies and firetail gudgeons in the pond.
  2. Hi all, I am playing with the thought of setting up a tank that has very low conductivity and PH. To ensure that the PH is kept around 5.5 i was thinking of using a CO2 system with PH controller. There is no plan to add plants to the tank and i was wondering if the CO2 in the water will be harmful for the fish as there would be very low oxygen. Using RO water i will try to keep the conductivity around 50mu/s adding only blackwater extract to the RO water. Usually the ph would be pretty unstable in such soft water and that is why i thought a CO2 PH controller might be the way to go. Maybe someone here has some suggestions on how to reach and maintain these water conditions. Looking forward to heaps of input :-) Thanks

  8. Hello all. I removed some sucker fish from my tank a little while age & have noticed algae build up on my plants. I currently have 1 x 5cm BN 1 x 5cm Sailfin Pleco & a 3 cm Marble BN. I also have 2 flying foxes as well. I dose with ferts once a week after a 20% water change & run DIY co2. I only removed the sucker fish as they got bigger were very agro with each other & were harassing the flying foxes & started on my Angels too. Any help would be great Cheers
  9. hey guys, some time in the next few weeks im splitting my garage in half and running a small reverse cycle inverter air conditioner to do away with the heaters in winter and keep cooler in summer on the really hot days. had my mate come over today and we brainstormed some ideas of the wall we are going to put up so the garage door can still open and looked at what we can insulate the garage door with. so my question is who else out there is climate controlling their room instead of individual heaters in each sump and can you give me any advice/feedback? cheers, steve
  10. Hi, I have an Aqua Ine all-in-one which is freshly cycled. I've got some minor algae growth, which I expected, but I've tested the phosphate and it is reading fairly high. I've had a few reef tanks and usually I'd add a reactor to keep phosphate in check, but with this tank I don't have that option. There is macro growing in the tank, but as I'd like it to be a reef I'm not interested in filling the tank with any more than came on the live rock. I'm using the Aqua One ProSkim HOB skimmer, which despite my initial trepidation is working fantastically. I've got some Phosbuster but I don't see that as a sustainable control. I'm obviously going to take all the usual measures to prevent phosphate like not over feeding etc. but I'd like to know if anyone has any other suggestions that I can try. Brad
  11. I have a tank that is exploding with RCS. Is there a way to control the numbers? I first thought "let nature take it's course" meaning, they will start dying off soon as resources run out, however, the tank is shared by many species, so I don't want to starve them on resources (if that's possible). Other than netting out the masses on a weekly basis, how do I control the RCS explosion?
