Re: Green Water - Help/Suggestions Please #1
I probably break one in ten when I change/clean the sleave! They get stained after a while anyway so its not as if it could have lasted forever.

At least with a new sleeve(s) you will see 'as new' results.

Re: Water changes #2
On our service visits we use 25l water containers for water changes, providing you can lift them under control it makes it quite easy to tip the water in without spilliage, takes about 20 secs to pour in 25l smoothly so you do need to be able to hold it for that long lol. On some of our bigger tanks we change about 300 litres a week and we tried using a pump system but in the end it was just easier to build up a sweat and arm muscles by lugging it by hand lol.

Dont use a bucket, use a camping tub or similar with a screwtop.

take a look at this one below, we change 200 litres a fortnight and I have to carry it all up a ladder! the tank is 8ft above floor level..

Re: Can a mod read this please? #5
its because you need to select size or colour! Nothing is free!! lol

Its actually the way the eshop template works which is a bit weird but i hope if anyone was actually looking to buy it they would click through until they see the price.

Hope so anyway!

Re: Ghost Koi.. #7
All pond fish have a habbit of jumping when they are newly intoduced although orfe are by far the worse.

Also things like air pressure changes can make fish jump, so before or after a storm for example. But realistically any fish will plash out of the water occasionaly for no particular reason, if it is right next to the pond there is also the possibility a cat flipped it out..

I wouldnt worry about it but maybe keep an eye out for cats

Re: Green Water - Help/Suggestions Please #8
When you replaced the UV lamp did you remove and clean the quartz sleeve? Thats the glass tube it slides into, really common mistake is to change the bulb only which does no good if the tube is to dirty to allow the UV rays through.

Its quite a big pond so adding a second or bigger UV is something I would consider anyway. TMC do a 110w unit called the Pro Pond UV, its based around twin 55watt UV lamps - its not on my website but details are on TMC site. I nomally sell them for £220 so not that pricey for a really good UV solution.

Re: sand vs gravel #9
Sand is really easy to clean, you can quite literally suck half of it up, swill it around in a bucket to loosen the dirt and then pour the sand back in!

Unless its a heavily planted system sand makes for a very easy to clean substrate and looks/works well to boot.
