I have been running a  Fauna Marin Skim Breeze co2 scrubber for a good few months, you can buy the media in bulk online so works out a lot cheaper have a read of the link below

Update time

Got back from holiday Thursday and my filter roll had got stuck so it had pushed my salinity up slightly and couple of acros have stripped, I had a feeling it wasn’t right, the week before I changed the roll from a fine one to medium, I think it’s me but I have a problem with the medium ones tucking over so I will stick to the fine rolls now. Roll has been changed now and salinity is being adjusted.

Cheato is growing well



I’m down to 4ml of Nopox and pulled 10 litres of the siporax out leaving 20 wich I want to get down to 10 litres or a bit less.
Nitrate is 1 and phos is 0, I changed the Rowa 2 weeks ago so will leave it for now and monitor my phos levels. Colours also look better on corals.
Water looks clearer and gha has nearly gone from my rocks. So all positive.

I had to remove a banggai the a few weeks back as they scrapped and the smaller one came of worse, Inga at mha windsor has exchanged it for me and hopefully picked a Male for me and fingers crossed they seem ok together.

I also got a copper band that I’ve had my eye on for awhile today too, it was feeding in store and looks healthy.
My naso is giving it a hard time at the moment and not letting it out from under the frag rack, it seems to be getting better though, you can see it in the video.

Think that’s it for now

Benny found in the drain pipe, after noticing a lot of water suddenly going down the emergency drain.  Gutted.  It will see to hang out at the top of the weir, so I guess it jumped it and got sucked down the drain.

Also, my two yellow tangs went to war, and one get shredded by the other.  Been in the sump for a week.  Going to sell it on.

Bloody fish!

I used a silverline clamp / guide to drill mine , helps keep the hole where you want it and makes starting a lot easier .

Yeah B&Q do the same kind of thing.

Get some putty or blu-tack to form a dam around where you're cutting so you can fill it with water. It's better than just trickling water on it as there's no chance of a localised hot spot where water hasn't trickled for a while and also when you cut through at any part, the water drains and so you  know you're almost through, at that point you slow it right down for the break through and take almost all the weight of the drill or it'll snap out rather than cut cleanly.
Many thanks for your help :)

Sorry I missed that. Yeah, definitely not. It'll cut the glass but I'd bet the chance of it binding and snapping the glass would be massive.

Hope you already had it and didn't buy it for this job.

Something like this is perfect.

Filtration / Re: Hydor Prime 30 struggle
« Last post by fr499y on Oct 21, 2017 9:48:06 am »
fill it up, switch it on for a few minutes then turn it back off.. give it a shake ( not too hard!!! ) then plug it back in. They are a pain to get air free but once you do they are nice and quiet :) I've had a few of the prime filters over the years so i know what a pain they can be  :grin:

Yeah it might need the flow hose disconnected at the filter and Syphon it off before closing the valve and reconnecting to the canister , I used to have to do the same even with the older fluval canisters with the wee primmer plunger , from some of the online reviews they say it can be noisy and air will take a little time to clear from canister even once running , so it may rattle / gurgle a bit for a few days even once running .
