Re: for sale forum and emergancy help post #1571
Sales and wanted added to wish list.

I'm a bit reluctant to add an emergency forum as...

It could be coldwater, tropical or a marine problem
Everyone thinks their problem is an emergency!
It separates information into different places.

Maybe I could split the 'setting up and health' forums but I think think people might never read the setting up posts and just go straight to the 'I've a problem' posts.

Feedback is always appreciated.

Re: Re think of mounting the electric heron fence #1572
Hi,

Here's some other heron scaring stuff - in the US but might be available over here...

http://www.puddleandpond.com/pests/ near the bottom..

and http://www.pondrx.com/shop/details.ph ... d=46&parentId=29&catId=29

I think herons are attracted by pond shapes? So maybe something could be done there.

Re: firewall how to solve problem.... #1573
How to pass referer information to specific Web pages in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2003

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way,the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click ww.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF)blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.


To create a rule:

1. Open NIS or NPF.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Internet Security or Personal Firewall. This step is not always
needed.
4. Click the Web Content tab.
5. Click Add Site. A new site/domain box appears. Enter the name of the site
that you want to receive the referer information and click OK. In this
example, it will be www.fishkeeping.co.uk
6. The site name appears in the left frame of the Options window.
7. Click the name of the new site.
8. Click the Global Settings tab.
9. In the "Information about visited sites" section, uncheck "Use default
settings".
10. Click Permit.

Re: Carbon #1574
Hi,

You might want to test your tap water for Nitrate as well. Can be surprisingly high!

Re: How to cycle a tank using the fishless method #1576
Is the carbon/zeolite not separate from the biological sponge?

Quite a few filters use a mixture of filtration media but I've only seen ones that have separate cartridges for each.

If they are separate and the sponge is dirty only wash it using water from the tank, not the tap.

Re: My New Tank #1577
One thing I thought I'd mention from the photos.... The position of the plug sockets. I'd be a little concerned about splashing or dripping water on to them.

Water can drip down wires straight into the plug internals if your not careful.

The other thing that people sometimes don't have is a one way valve in the air pipe from pump to airstone. If the pump stops for whatever reason the water can sometimes be drawn back into the pump.

Spam and Viruses #1578
hello,

Just wanted to give some advice to anyone using a PC at home.

If you don't have the following three items on your PC you need to get them...

Firewall, Antivirus software, Anti-spyware software.

Some applications will be a combination of two or three.

Windows XP has a firewall built in but it has to be switched on! Otherwise I recommemd Zone Alarm, the free one is fine (you don't need the Pro or Plus Version)

For antivirus you can either download the AVG free edition here or get your pc scanned here where it says 'scan your PC'

For anti-spyware go here

If your not confident installing stuff on your computer, get someone who is to help! I don't want this to turn into a support forum for computers .

Getting your pc scanned here is pretty easy tho.

Hope this helps,

Fishadmin

Re: Help! Help! Very sick fish #1579
Hiya,

The cycling thing takes weeks to get going. At the moment it's likely the ammonia levels are going up and the only way to reduce them is to change some water. Changing water will have very little effect on the cycling process.

Re: brown algae #1580
Test the water going into the tank as well, can be surprisingly high in nitrates.
