eheim professional 2 #2
ive recently got hold of a second hand eheim pro 2 external filter (i assmue it to be the freshwater type as that is what it was used for). What maintenance checks should i do before setting it up? i was thinking about taking it to the local maidenhead aquatics, would they be able to test it for me or anything?

nano ideas. #4
i have been planning to start up a marine tank, but have been unable to find a 60 gallon tank in my price range. Currently i have two tanks free, a 24 and 27 gallon tank. Would i be able to set up a nano FO aquarium and which fish would be suitable in this size? I would like to use the 27 as the show tank which is 32" long.

Re: buying used #5
ok thanks guys. like i said ive found plenty but they are all with cabinets etc, and i dont have the funds for them right now. i also looked up an aquarium maker but theres minimum spend limits which also causes a headache.

Re: bolivian stone suckers #7
yes thats them. pretty sure the second pic was almost identical. im now thinking that it was due to the aerator, which was cutting out. thanks for your help.

shopping list #8
ok so having decided to go marine these are the tings which so far i believe i need. I was planning to go FO for starters but would like to add some live rock and/or sand too, so is this ok?

tank (minimum 60 gallons but prferably at least 80)
marine ply, wood epoxy,hinges, veneer, etc
coral sand (advise please)
external filter
RO unit
protein simmer
thermometers
heaters (im under the impression that as with freshwater its best to go for a few small rather than one large - please advise)
refractometer 9again please advise)
marine salt
extention leads!!
dechlorinator, ammonia, initial bacteria, testing kits, etc

Is this lias ok for FO? If there is anything missing please let me know. I have asked for acvise on certain things as we all know not everything is created equal, and I am new to marines. One last thing, would I be able to managis simple set up for around 500 pounds, bearing in mind i am building the cabinet myself, and am looking for a used tank?

Also i am considering building the cabinet to house a sump tank, so are there restrictions on the size of this?

Re: starting new aquarium #9
hey guys,
thanks for the answers.

I was thinking about FO to start with an external filter, although would it be ok to add some live sand/rock also with this. The other problem is i currently only have a 24 gallon tank and am trying desperately to find something no less than 80 on a strict budget, but it hasnt been easy, if theres anything or anywhere you suggest please let me know asap. Im looking at second hand at the moment as the cost is a problem and only need the tank as i will be building the cabinet myself.
Also how effective is a sump at increasing the water volume?

Re: bolivian stone suckers #10
i dont actually have a photo. these were bought out of coldwater, where they were with orandas. I will find out the species name as soon as i can. They did look a little like plecs to be honest, but i wouldnt have thought they were at first sight.
