  3. Big Thankyou

  4. Shops In Oxfordshire ?

    Bit of a trek down the a34 but reefdreams is excellent for drygoods and livestock well worth the effort.
  5. My Bit Of Water

    Following along,as I remember didnt you used to have coventry aquatics on your doorstep-i remember going there a few times used be a a great shop before its demise.
  6. Never Saw This Coming

    Sorry to here that too daz,thats a shocking way to treat people-to tell customers before staff is ridiculous.
  7. Never Saw This Coming

    Shame,never been there.Wish it wasn't so far would like a Christmas bargain
  8. Chromis And Firefish

    All the firefish ive ever had spend all day hiding too-nice looking fish but a bit of a waste of space.
  9. If You Could Have.....

    Would like a blacktip reef shark,never gonna happen :(
  10. Phillips Coral Care

    Anyone looking at these,im very interested.The r&d gone into these is second to none(not surprising with a company as massive as phillips)and with luc vogels helping with the research it seems like an excellent product.
  11. Full Tank Shots

  12. Your Most Regrettable Fish

    Blue cheeked goby as above,couldnt catch mine for months though
  13. Aquaforest Experience

    I think youll be fine rich look forward to seeing results,I know alot of italian tanks seem to use a small amount of zeovit simply as an asorber so even if you dont get time to shake them their still beneficial just not being used to their full potential so to speak.
  14. Aquaforest Experience

    Im not having a go at af or anything im simply saying that running zeolites dosing bacteria and a carbon soutce will produce the same results depending on the amount of zeolite and reactor flow.All zeolites would be more efficient pumped/shaken regardless this is how the mulm is released-other wise the stones will get blocked and you will not be releasing the bacteria film to get skimmed out(reducing nutrients and feeding coral).It will be in the other products you use from the range where you may see the difference.As far as complicated thats a bit of a myth I think everyone has thought the same but once you put the stones in have zeostart automatic dose and bac 1-2 x weekly the rest is up to the user,im away probably more than most people as i work all over the place and it works for me.Ive used fm zeolites and bacteria and didnt notice a difference to kz really.
  15. Aquaforest Experience

    Just seems a bit of a contradiction zeovit on a knife edge,washed out pastel etc so im going to use a carbon copy system??apart from price
