Re: R.O. Water & live rock? #21
Spoke to the shop and they said that they would replace the filter/ membrane and offered some free water when they've sorted the problem.

Re: hi to all #22
With the firefish, doesn't one pick on the others? I read an article in pfk saying to only keep one of each species and my local shop has a group which has alot of shredded fins. Or is this only if you keep 2 together rather than a big group?

Re: R.O. Water & live rock? #23
I was considering buying an R.O. unit but was wary of having to run it too much. I think though, if it's the only way to get decent water then I'll have to do it. But in the meantime I am going to the shop to tell them about the water and see what they say.

Re: Help needed with protein skimmer please #25
No, although I'm told aqua medic are very good, so hopefully I will get it right eventually as I think the problem lies somewhere between me and the instructions rather than the equipment

Re: R.O. Water & live rock? #26
I did buy it, from my local outlet of a large chain. I will definitely go elsewhere next time, I was more concerned that the water would be a huge problem, but this level looks to be OK as long as I find some good water next time. Especially as I don't have anything in the tank yet! I assumed R.O. water should have very low level of nitates (if any).

Re: R.O. Water? #27
Would 1kg per 10 litres be a good amount for live rock or is this too little?
Thanks

Re: R.O. Water? #28
Hi,
My tank is 350 litres and I am going to start with a fish only system with a small amount of live rock and go from there. I have installed a t5 luminaire for future use and to spur on the live rock and I have 2 external filters which are set up pretty much as mechanical filters with one attached to a uv. I've also added 2 small powerheads for circulation and a protein skimmer which I can't get to work (as you know). I will add the live rock once the tank has been running a couple of weeks and all I have in their at the moment is a substrate of live sand which I hope will start things off. I used to breed discus and thought I knew alot about fishkeeping but I am in the process of being rudely awoken.

Re: Help needed with protein skimmer please #29
The powerhead has a restrictor so I'll try that. How do you measure how much air to put in? Thanks for your help.

R.O. Water? #30
I've just tested the R.O. water that I purchased to set up my tank and found that the nitrate level is approx. 25ppm. Is this normal? I thought R.O water should have a much lower value.
