  1. Covering aquarium cabinet with vinyl sheet

    I don't even know if the vinyl wrap that is sold through the auto spare parts stores will even stick to timber long term.  Kitchen cabinets and alike that are wrapped are usually thermoformed or vaccumed wrapped and  both sides of the "plastic" are joined to form a seal. With the "automotive" wrap you would need to over lap the to get a good seal.  2pak would give a permanent seal that lasts a lot longer and would look a lot cleaner and neater. 
  2. Covering aquarium cabinet with vinyl sheet

    It is also super expensive! 2 meter roll of it is $180 at Autobarn! I want to do the bonnet on the sons Datsun in it. For a similar price as covering the whole unit you could get a kitchen place to make new doors and  a end panel, paint in high gloss paint and you could install them.
  3. Non return valve?

    you need more water in your tank. Fill the tank s the water level is higher than the end of the pipe inside the filter and your issue will be solved    
  4. Non return valve?

    It should only siphon until the water levels are the same in the tank and filter. How is the filter mounted?  
  5. Female Saulosi's

    I have had females become dominate/sub-dominate in my tanks when i kept them. Some even had faint black barring. Do what Doug has said and remove her and vent the fish to be sure
  6. hopar battery back up pump

    I think the output is going to be a little low to run 4 outlets and to keep things safe
  7. I think this is a technical question?

    Every question about a women belongs in the Technical section.
  8. WC Frontosa vs F1 Frontosa

    Also remember the Wild Caught fish didn't start their growing with special high protein diets and meals everyday. Our tank raised fish grow better, faster and bigger than any wild caught fish would. We also dont know how old a WC fish is, we only buy them on size. When I had wild caught Tropheus the offspring always looked healthier than their adults. Better color/patterns too, I thought.
  9. Gravel vac for 16mm hose

    I doubt there would be a commercially available one. You would need to make one.
  10. Trouble with Resun LP40

    It must be missing the hose clamp?
  11. Large tank transportation

    You will be lucky to find anyone willing to risk it. The cost would be huge if you could.
  12. Forum Marked as Read

    There isn't any other option.
  13. Fish boarding.

    Get in contact with Andrew at Labyrinth. I dont know that he will do it, but he may be able to help out with a name that will.
  14. solution to hybrids

    I think the biggest problem is attitude. Not having a shot, but using the example you have used Daryna. The fish should never be sold, grow them up, teach the kids about fish, but they are your responsibility (the fish) at the end of the day. I would loose my crap if I was sold non-pure fish for beer money. I would be even more pee'd if I wasn't told they were hybrids. I have no idea of the original deal that went wrong. I don't know if you were the seller or the buyer, but these threads always end the same way. If the two parties cant sort it out in private, it wont be sorted out in public.
  15. side drop design efficiency?

    Number one is tried and tested, it works well. I agree with Chris about the heater, you will be lucky to have room for one and would be better adding more filter material to use the space better. I would also get rid of the bio filtration and add extra floss.
