Adding a Nano heater to my 12 Litre Shrimp Tank

The kitchen Shrimp tank was hardly doing anything, as beautiful as it is. So iv moved it next to my main tank and my Shrimp Vase so I can show it some love.

90mm Tamron Macro Lens for my Canon

This is a second Tamron lens that Iv bought now. The other lens was 70-300mm and as it was labeled ‘macro’ I bought it, turns out it wasn’t right for what I wanted it for.

Although the light is suitable, it’s cheap, and lets the visual aspect of the tank down. The lid is made from solid aluminium, with black gloss paint on the … Continue reading DIY light housing unit for my Nano Shrimp Tank

Preventing your fish from getting sucked into the filter

After switching to an external canister filter, and having a new bloom of fish fry swimming about the tank, I was immediately concerned with the possibility that small fish and new fry could get sucked into the filter, via the intake tube, and inside my filter. Especially when you cant figure out why you’re not getting any baby shrimp. I … Continue reading Preventing your fish from getting sucked into the filter

I couldn’t get a very good photo under the … Continue reading Interpet LED Blue Moon light

Just set up my Fluval 206 on my 64L tank!

What a nightmare! It’s took me about 4 hours to set up my Fluval 206 Canister filter. It’s not down to the filter though of course. The Fluval 206 canister filter is working fantastic. The problem is I still live at home with the parents. I have a large bedroom but everything’s in the way and … Continue reading Just set up my Fluval 206 on my 64L tank!
