Cornish planted aquarium

Hi all,

I've just started a blog about my native British tank, a Red Sea Max 130D (room temperature, no chiller). I am experimenting with locally collected seaweeds. Have a look if you are interested:

(an bollenessor is cornish for 'the rock pool hunter')

cheers, Michiel

Hi guys,

thanks! Of course the trick is not to put a bunch of nice seaweeds in a tank but to keep em looking nice for some time and that I am a long way from that! I have just posted about some of the problems I've been having. Even if not always successful, it is a nice hobby just to try figuring things out. The tank is at room temperature, so often 20+ C. A chiller is expensive and I am not sure if housing it in the stand (with holes drilled in the back) will take care of the noise and will provide sufficient ventilation...

cheers, Michiel

You can always use a refrigerator with coiled pipe from the tank running through it.
