  1. The easiest way, to make a trees day, is to tip a bucket of aquarium water that has had a filter squeezed out in it, all around the trees base. Its the best fertilizer on the market. Destroying a filters bacteria colony by cleaning filter media in straight tap water results in 2 weeks of ammonia and nitrite smashing your fish. Best case scenario you get stuck doing epic water changes every few days and wasting hours testing water. That is the best thing that can happen. The worst is you lose your fish and just give up. The tiny mistake of cleaning filter media in tap water is something we see every day at AOA. And.... every day we help people go into damage control, and get themselves back to the point where they can be lazy again. Its not even like its a big mistake, its just a little one with big consequences. Long ago, someone pulled me up on cleaning filters in tap water. Gave me a lecture. And that marked the beginning for me of keeping fish long term, rather than just buying them. When I stopped treating my filter like something I had to get clean.... and instead realised that gunk growing in the filter was the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEEDED TO HAVE TO ACHIEVE AN AWESOME AQUARIUM. All filters are just homes for bacteria. Cleaning a filter means pruning back the bacteria culture so that water can flow through the media. It does not mean killing it all and making the place sparkle. The most reliable way to maintain good bio filtration, is to clean filters in a bucket of aquarium water taken from the aquarium the filter was running on. Its a small thing, but it decides the fate of the little underwater world you have created
  2. I would like to thank staff at A.O.E. for help choosing a low priced led aquarium light. They reccomended a worx 90cm light to illuminate my 110 cm tank. I have now installed it and am verrrrry happy with it. Thanks again guys. peter m

  4. I just wanted to say thanks to the staff at TheTechDen today. I brought in my Eheim 2213 which had only been running for just over a week because the impeller and the shaft both broke during the night. They grabbed another shaft and impeller from another filter (they didn't have spares) even though they are not covered by the warranty. The filter is now running as quiet as a mouse, I'd forgotten how quiet it was supposed to be! The filter was always loud so I guess something was already cracked when I bought it? Ah well, it's all settled now, so thank-you very much for some excellent customer service
  5. OMG, just went to the LFS to get an Ammonia Test Kit which they didnt have any in stock. The Lady working there said dont worry, you only get Ammonia in Salt Water Tanks anyway. How do these people get a job with fish ????????????
