After much research into an energy efficient filter design and suitably sized tank for Tropheus i settled upon a few 5x2x2's and a two tier stand. Pete (PETFISH) was approached to put together the setup and has delivered two superb tanks and associated galvanised steel stand. Real pity that he is currently unable to source any more glass :-( I've still got quiet a bit of work to do this coming weekend to vinyl the back of the tanks and play around with how i want the air to enter the pipes, but the photo's below should give an understanding of the setup so far (please ignore the leopard print blanket)... For those interested in the concept at play here, i suggest checking out the following video: Im really hoping to get away with an LP20 or LP40 at most to adequately filter (mech and bio) both 5x2x2 tanks. Time will only tell.
just got my new Ikola home, settling in well, one is holding, had a massive day on Fri, drove up to my mates house at Kallangur to pick up my 10 Kapampa ( WC male is huge) and my colony of Msobo, James looked after them o/n for me, then over to airport (big delays) to pick up 20 F1 Ikola fry from Melbourne, then headed to Twmba to pick up a 6x2 and 5x2 tank, out to Highfields to pick up breeding colony of Ikola,then started heading home 380km west, got home at 9:50pm then had to sort out over 50 fish, was a big day, only managed to nod off a couple of times while driving, thankfully the roos were a little quiet as it was windy
