room airconditioner

Recommended Posts

ineke

I am very lucky and have bought a new split system room airconditioner for my shrimp room. Never having had this type of thing before are they set and forget? Can I set the temp for say 24 degrees and it automatically keeps it there without me having to switch from heating to cooling? For instance if the days forecast is 35 day down to 14 night would the aircon keep the room warm through the night and switch to cool by itself. It is probably really simple to know if you have had these before but we have seperate heating and cooling in the house so I really don't know. Hubby says it's automatic I thought it would only heat or cool depending on the cycle you pick.Please let him be right for ONCE. :rolleyes:

Most modern aircon's have a AUTO setting

If u put It to say 24 on auto

It will keep it at 24 no matter what

Lol just make sure yours has auto section tho! 

 

You dont want to have to warm up the room if it doesnt and its set to cool

There is an auto cycle so should be OK. :thumbsu:  Just waiting to have it installed- someone is coming to have a look tomorrow. I didn't realise they were so expensive to have installed- usually Alan does all that type of thing but as this has a 5 year warranty we need to get it installed properly.

Yes I really needed some chillers for at least 4 tanks so this is much cheaper . It will take the stress away especially if we go away for holidays :smile:

Also the modern air cons have very good energy ratings

My Aunty has a big unit it's 3kw or something

She runs it's constantly,day and nite

Her bill each quarterly only went up $100/$150 only

That"s great to hear- I guess running 10 heaters plus the fans would not be cheap either!

It will be good to not have to constantly monitor the tanks. I find that even though I have the heaters turned to their lowest setting once the ceiling fan in the room goes on some of the heaters end up on too so I'm fighting  them -I often switch them off during the day but have to remind myself to switch them back on at night. It should be great not having to worry.

LOL yes  lets hope so -just need that plumber to come and install it -he was coming today to have a look but got stuck on a job so hopefully coming tomorrow. I would really like it installed before we go away in a fortnight- if Alan is well enough that is!

      Hi Team! So the tank has been commissioned and paid for.  Final dimensions are 900x400x200, rimless, 10mm PPG starphire glass, polished edges.   Now trying to think about design ideas Idea 1 would be a 5 stone layout with a split or canyon between the main and second stone.  This layout would attempt to play with the scale- seeming like a vast landscape. Idea 2 uses larger stones and breaks the surface - I think the sense of scale would be changed here and would not seem so large - more like one mountain monolith. Idea 3 brings the scale to 1:1 and uses some kind of tree roots to create a creek or river bottom. What other ideas could work?  I guess I will have to see as I try to find what kind of hardscape I can actually source. Thanks for any and all advice or ideas Have a great day

      Let the RO water sit for 24hours before testing pH. That will give you the true pH level.

      Allright thanks, ill do 25% Waterchange weekly, i have many poweder food here, that should be working 😃 Thanks. Im already dripping my water, one litre per hour.

      Shrimps aren't very high bioload so you should probably reduce the weekly water change to no more than 25% and the new water will need to be dripped into the tank over many hours. I haven't used salty shrimp but I have heard it usually comes out about 6.8 so I don't think that is a problem. It is more likely to be you are changing too much water which has that PH difference of 1 may be too much for the babies to cope with. Lava rock won't alter the PH/KH so thats fine. Just do 20-25% weekly water changes, adding the ew water with a driper and I think you will be fine. I would probably get some baby shrimp food as well and that will be a powder,, so use a pin, dip the tip 2-3mm in to the tank quickly to wet, then in the powder and then swirl that in the tank so it spreads around. It is a fairly small tank so there may not be quite enough natural biofilm (caution not to over feed though). Simon

      Sorry, yes you are right.  I have tropica powder Soil with Taiwan Bees. They are all healthy, no one is dying, buy my shrimp babys die off after maybe 2-3 weeks 😕 The only rock i have inside my tank is lava rock. im asking, why the PH is rising, because im putting RO water with only GH salt inside the RO water. Still the PH is rising to 6,8 PH after maybe 24-48 hours. Im little bit concerned, because my RO Water has maybe 5,8 PH? and the difference is too high to raise that fast. Maaybe thats killing my baby shirmps? The high difference. But i dont want to put any KH anymore in my Waterchange water. Thank you so much for your help 😃
