Honestly.. that's a great call. I wish I didn't waste that money on this. But now I know.. this is the weakest motor ever. It hardly even sucks up any surface scum if the opening is even slightly blocked
I agree! I think an update is in order with some pics.
That is a seriously nice looking tank
Sorry I missed this post guys. Thank you for your nice comments.Very nice !
What type of rocks did you use and where did you buy them ?
Thanks. 😁 Yea.. it's ok... You can live with it and it does do the job. However, powerwise it doesn't really even compare with the eheim. I think the vuppa is good if you always have a clean scape and diligently get rid of any plant matter that might float up. Once that it is done, it will do a decent job at skimming the surface. The eheim is just sheer power and will work through anything. Keep in mind that this may be a good/bad thing: sometimes livestock goes in the skimmer as well and with eheim it is almost impossible for them to keep up to that power.Looking great! Really love that scape. That's disappointing to hear about the Vuppa II as I was really looking into getting one for my 90P. It's $$$ but clean and sexy looking...well, as sexy as a rectangular piece of metal gets.
Another nice looking tank that. I’ve always wanted to keep Asian rummy noses. Are they as active as your standard rummy nose? I’m just started up another tank and I really like the layout of the previous tank. Nice and simple Great work!Hey,
Thanks for your interest. The tank has been taken down. I have moved the fish into an ADA 60F, but it isn't as balanced as I would like it to be. Suffering from lots of stag horn algae, BBA and dying fish. I think it has to do with multiple factors including smaller volume and change in water parameters due to new substrate/hardscape etc. As a temporary scape, I used fluorite black and sand + lava rock.
I am trying to see if I can salvage it in some way. Unfortunately all the fish didn't survive this move/transition well.
Thanks! I have had these for over a year now. Unfortunately I lost a few due to disease (parasites) that spread from one to the other. I finally picked up some meds in the states so hopefully I can save the few I have left. I think they definitely prefer lower flow than regular rummy nose. I just find that rasboras in general prefer lower flow. Hence I switched from regular lily pipe to the bubble pipe. They are very sensitive to water conditions and definitely prefer a higher pH with higher TDS. I started loosing colour and general health/faced losses in lower pH tank. I re-added the mini-landscape rock and they seem to be doing better... PS... the tank is really dirty as I just came back from vacation and need to clean it up. I am planning on resetting it and using this to medicate these fish anyways.Another nice looking tank that. I’ve always wanted to keep Asian rummy noses.
