  1. Best stuff u can use ..... don't let the smell fool you
  2. Rubbish Not rubbish. And there is no need to talk like that. David is a well respected member and breeder.I would much rather have 3,000 bio-balls then a handful of microporous. What if you dropped the handful In tap water? Uh oh, no more cycle. But if you had 3,000 bio balls. Oops only a few, not a big deal; I have thousands that are cycled! It IS rubbish ... what you would rather have is irrelevent The facts remain the facts ....
  3. Who says a handful ?.... I have about 40 liters of Matrix and Substrat in my filter ..... you would need literaly a semi tralier load of bioballs to even come close to the surface area in my filter. Under 2500 gph flow it could (theoreticaly) handle about 16500ppm ammonia ..... which is about 1000 large comet goldfish. 40 liters of bioballs under the same flow could only handle about 240-270 ppm. I'm just telling you the facts ... as they are. Modern sintered glass ceramic media absolutely destroys bioballs for biological efficiency .... it just costs a lot more.
  4. Thats normal for prime ... but its also normal for Seachem Australia too .... Matty doesn't exactly run his business on normal peoples time.
  5. Today at Bunnings ..... they had these huge 220 liter black plastic heavy duty tubs/bins for $44.95 Biggest ones I've seen .... absolutely perfect for a patio pond/ tank
  6. or you could just ..... do it ! http://www.oase-livingwater.com/en_EN/water-garden/products/filters/uvc-clarifiers/bitron-eco.html?tx_zsproducts_pi1[product]=8984&cHash=6a0438ad8c804c7ec1e357cdb9d8e53d
  7. What makes these superior to any other biomedia, Taksan? Surface area .... Substrat pro for example ... One small handful of it has more surface area then 3000 bioballs
  8. It's sadly falling apart under the pressure of the tank bowing... I'm Getting new timbers tomorrow and some corner brackets to hopefully strengthen it. New filter arrived today and has been assembled but it's no use switching it over until I can get the surrounding repaired.
  9. Wow so basically in order to kill 75% of the list you need 3.8w per 100l of flow. That's massive ....
  10. Old blagdon finally packed up today .... Literaly the uv unit just broke off the lid when I tried to open it to clean pads. Also noticed my nice timber surround is errrrrr .... Falling apart around the edges. Stay tuned .... Major pond renovation coming up. Still got all the fish even the old one who will turn 30 next year.

  12. I just boxed up a standard 345g laguna tub ... ended up looking ok I think '
