  1. Hey guys, I’m going away for a few weeks and having a neighbour take care of my tank, as they are already gonna be caring for my cat during that period. I’ll be away for 2 and a half weeks, so not a huge amount of time, but the neighbour doesn’t have any experience with fish or shrimp tank maintenance. The tank will be fine without a water change during that time as long as I do one before I leave, I know that, but my 2 main problems are feeding and stopping my intake sponge from clogging up. For feeding I was considering getting a couple of pill boxes, like the ones that have seperate compartments for each day of the week, so I can set a certain amount for each day, and which foods. But for the intake sponge, I’m pretty stumped. My current intake is a sponge filter connected to the intake pipe, but it’s been clogging up once or twice a week due to how fine it is (and how messy my fish are). When it’s clogged, it puts strain on the canister filter’s motor, and that’s not good. I don’t trust her with cleaning it safely, plus I’m only paying her for 5 mins in the morning, and 5 at night. I’ve considered a mesh intake, but it looks like it could hurt a fish if it went past it quickly... plus I can’t check the size of the inside where the pipe could go as the only one I’ve found would have to be posted. Are there easy alternatives that I wouldn’t have to mod, or do intake sponges come in courser versions? (I haven’t checked). Any input would be appreciated!
  2. Hey guys! Just wondering if any of ya'll have experience keeping filter feeder shrimp? They're fairly common here although most of the LFS tend to stock lethargic specimens that seem to be on their last legs 😕 Just need some advice on how to spot and pick out healthy specimens for my community tank 😄 Also, anyone know where I could find the less common wood shrimp on steroids? Let me know 🙂 Common Wood Shrimp Wood Shrimp's Buff Cousin, Vampire Shrimp
  3. Hey folks, can anyone recommend an effective, silent corner filter for a 33cm cube tank? Cheers ? This is looking like a good candidate at the moment: http://www.thetechden.com.au/Aquael_Pat_Mini_Filter_for_tanks_10_80_liters_p/111605.ht
  4. hello, i want to setup 5 tanks and my goal would be adding 1 or 2 pipe UGF into the tank! it's my first time using UGF filter, people often said i must beware of the sludge it would hinder the UGF from working properly i think i could prevent it, yeah maybe... urgh... next problem would be a shorter soil life, usually good soil would be good for 2 years, but my friend always got random death after 8 month change the soil and voila, problem solved, i need some trick for these problem, i don't know what the trick, but i don't want to setup the tank again after 8 month... i could add more soil, for stronger buffer, maybe more soil mean more life time? any idea how to use the ugf? Thanks

    spraybar mod to reduce flowrate

    Hi folks, i have received some beautiful CRS from heavyD today and i have a situation with the current being too fast for the shrimp to swim very well in. I have the spraybar just below the surface and angled slightly up for maximum oxygenation but it still seems to be a little fast at the lower level of the tank, i can see moss swaying around and the shrimps being blown across somewhat when they try to swim. There is quite a "whirlpool" effect happening. Aside from replacing the canister with a smaller one; how does one go about lessening the current inside the tank? I thought of 2 solutions but I don't know how wellthey will do or exactly how to implement them - 1)I could make more holes or make the holes larger in the spraybar? 2) cover it with a stocking or sponge or something to slow down the water as it shoots out the holes in the spraybar. cheers love n peace will
  7. G'Day all, I have an Eheim 2213 Canister filter, API Bio Chem Zorb, API Nitra Zorb, just wondering what goes where as this will be the first time using Nitra Zorb. From bottom up, it goes Blue Course Sponge (3 or 4 depending on room), then White Filter Pad (1), then Carbon Pad (1), do I then place the Bio Chem Zorb on or the Nitra Zorb? Or do they go in different sections in the filter? Cheers.

    Will my RCS be okay?

    I bought 7 RCS for my 2.5 gal tank yesterday (no filter/heater). I also have a marimo ball as well as some java moss. I was wondering if this no filter set up is okay for my RCS? This morning they were acting less active than yesterday. They weren't picking at the marimo ball or anything, and were all just standing still..
  9. Would this be suitable for my 6-gallon long Mr. Aqua tank? I was thinking of using it as a second filter to complement a dual sponge filter. Eddie

    How to filter a divided tank

    Any suggestions on how to filter a divided tank using a canister filter? If the intake is at the end of one side, then the rest will not be as filtered? I'm hoping to use canister filter, so I can use a chiller..
