  1. Is one better for the hole sizes I have? Shouls have put all that on one post.
  2. I have looked at all 3 types only went towards durso because i have had pipework for that already, came with the sump
  3. Thanks both. I have one 32mm and one 20mm connection. Sorry which one would be the main drain and how far below water level, and the other just breaking the water level? I will def go for top flow only on weir
  4. H I'm installing a weir and pipework and need to ask some advice. Firstly I see some weirs with top comb entry only others have botom and middle slots. What is best and why please? The comb I want to use on the top is 25mm high should the flow cover this completely? With the pipework I have one 32mm and one 20mm to use. Am I right in thinking the larger pipe is the main return and has a u bend which ends at he min tank level when sump is full and the second is positiond just below the surface level. Thanks for reading
  5. Led Lense Cahnges

    Hi if i bought a 300w light advertiesd as Good for 4ft with 90 deg lenses and was bought modified to 120 deg. Does this mean it would be ok for a 5ft? if not what differance do the lens angles make. Thanks Keith
  6. Hi i'm looking at a 2nd hand light unit, has anyone come across this? the lenses have been changed from 90 to 120 deg and is 6 months old? At the moment its up for £150 Thanks for looking.
  7. Ro Unit Running Cost

    Hi there, I planning a change to reef tank, I've got a 5x2x2 tank and I'm on a water meter. How much water do you think I would need to replace? What is the cost saving making your own RO compared to buying. So really is it cost effective or just a time and hassle benefit. Thanks for viewing
  8. Led Views Please

    Hi thanks for the reply. The tank is 5 X 2 X 2. I was wondering about common the different Len's angles were. Was thinking of using in the middle and then add 1 or 2 small units either side if required. As for corals just sifts to start, then may be hard later deepening on how things go.
  9. Led Views Please

    Hi I'm collecting some equipment together to convert my tank to a reef tank ( currently keeping Tropheus ) tank is drilled with sump though. Looking at 2nd hand Intel 300w programmable Reef LED.
