  1. Hey ppl, I am setting up a few 6' x 18" x 18" breeding setups and am thinking of air driven side drop filters or Poret foam corner filters, am leaning towards the corner filter as I can utilise both corners of the tank for flow and can place marine pure balls behind the foam for a clean look. Air driven for cost and ease of maintenance, what do you think? Sam.

  3. .QCG have teamed up with various Aquarium stores around Brisbane to take in unwanted fish to help save them from unwanted pain and suffering and or dumping into our waterways you should always do your homework before buying any type of fish but sometimes fights overcrowding or illness happens we will be dropping of crates to house the fish and one of our members will endevour to pick up surrendered fish within 24hrs our aim is to quarantine fish and ultimately give it a new home pls do not use this as an excuse to dump all your unwanted fish we don't want the same ppl dropping fish off on a regular basis use this forum to ask questions and learn about fish a list of shops with crates will be posted soon [MENTION=56]savage_roo[/MENTION] FJ

  6. So a few weeks ago i got four 4x2x18 tanks build by mick on the gold coast, with side drop filters built in. Very happy with how they turned out and they are working a treat. Im running all 4 tanks off a blagdon KA65 and the flow is great.
  7. Hi Guys, Im about to get some new 4x2x18s made up and want to do a side drop or corner drop filters. Would any one recommend either one over the other. If i go corner drops it will be both back corners with them. And suggestions on filter media and layout?
  8. Can anyone point me to a detailed side drop filter design? From what I've seen, these look like a very efficient air powered filter and I'm contemplating them for some 5ft tanks. Who runs side drops and loves them?
  9. Hi All I want to make a Moss backdrop for my tank. I'm just interested to see what kind of mesh people use.. I don't want to spend the money on stainless steel if I can avoid it. I was thinking of using the fine gutter guard?? The tank is a 2x18 Cheers!
  10. Whilst wondering how important it is to get the water change water the same temperature the tank after an accident spraying water everywhere in the laundry.. (For straight cold water I can just clip it to the tap, hot I can't) So I dug up some uni work and made an equation to calculate the final temperate after water change. From a quick read I found that less than 0.5 degree change is alright (correct me if I'm wrong) I just thought i'd share it in case anybody is interested or ever wondered how much of an effect.
  11. Hey guys, A little over a month ago I purchased a new Eheim 2213 for my 20G tank, complete with the "bio-media" canister insert basket. It ran really well when it first started, too well in fact. I drilled out the holes on the spray bar to lessen the output current, which worked decently. Then I bought an inline CO2 reactor (Ista) from AOA which I am really happy with, it's very efficient (100%). It uses the water flow from the canister to spin an impeller, which also helps to impede water flow rate and slowed it down a tad for me too. It was running at a current I thought was really good, but then I noticed the other day when I washed out all the media (rinsed it with tank water) and put it all back together the water basically trickles out of the spraybar now. And I really do mean trickle. When it was brand spanking new it blasted water all around the tank, the fish had trouble swimming in it. Now it seriously seems to have something wrong with it. My research tells me they should be cleaned monthly and the white (wool?) pads replaced with each cleaning. This is the fine pad I think, and seeing as it is the first in the filter flow then it makes sense it would restrict the pressure greatly. The filter is still running virtually silently and doesn't make any gargling sounds. The only air that has gotten into the pump was the residual air after I primed it and got it going, but there was virtually none. I am thinking I either need to buy some more pads from AOA (really cheap, which fits my budget!), perhaps check the impeller / pump unit, or perhaps remove the external reactor and see if that is restricting me too much (which I don't particularly want to do... Cheers for any input guys, if anyone has had the same experience then it would be great to get any insight!
  12. Okay so my gh is 6 and my ph is 7.0 my discus and rams are acting a bit shy and a little bit of colour change .. They're use to gh kh of 5 degrees and a ph of 6.5 I have ran out of acid buffer and I have heard chucking a green tea bag into the canister will soften my water ? Is there any house hold remedies or could I do a water change till I get some tomorrow afternoon ... ? 0449931336 message would be much appreciated! Please help!

  15. Do every type of fish get this diseas and can it be treated ? And by what water changes? And how do fish get it?
  16. First of all, im not entirely sure that this is called a side drop filter, guess ill know soon enough. Any way i have decided that i would like to have a go at creating some sort of filter that is completely built into the tank and require as litte energy as possible. Im going to go with air driven side drop filters. Again correct me if im wrong, but i cant seem to find much in the way of help for what i want to do on the net, but im sure this has been done before so maybe im looking in the wrong places. Ive seen them at pet shops, usually filled with filter wool and gravel. Anyway, the idea is simple, use several glass pieces fixed into one end of the tank creating partitions that flow into eachother, fill the partitions with different filter material, then use an air stone to create a lift out of the last partition, spilling into the tank and then overflowing back into the first partition. I have a few questions for any one with experience in the matter. Youll have to check the link to get an idea of what im thinking. Basically my main question is how many partitions?? this is my ideas, all end view of the tank. sorry for the dodgy photoshop The 4 would be ideal, but will an airstone create enough flow for the water to keep running through the filter after going up and down so much?? The 2, one large one small, seems easy and practical, and will probably be what i do if i cant get the water to flow through the 4 partitions. The 3, was an idea i was toying with, having the inlet on the bottom, good flow, clean bottom of tank, although i would have to have little to no substrate. I plan to use a coarse sponge, then bioballs, then a bag of either purigen or carbon. i really really like purigen, especially on a small tank, but 30 would be me a @#$%load of carbon. i know its not for every body... input??? i forgot to say, this is on a spare 15x8x8 tank and sort of a just-because-i-can project. although if it all goes well im considering something similar for my 2ft... Sorry, ramble ramble ramble. Any input is appreciated, and ill post pics when i do it. Cheers .
  17. Greeting May someone advice me how to make side drop filter for a fry tank and display tank pictures or diagrams will assist. regards
