Thanks for the link, I'll go through the product list and see if I can
work out a group order with the folks back home.

If the volume in the sump is ample for water change, I can see the logic
but most would drain from the tanks, won't they? Sounds like the right
time to bring out the siphon too.

I'm subbed to Digest mode and that's probably why I don't see any
Still not very clear about the flow, so would it be possible for you to
do the following;
Open your document with Publisher and scroll to the diagram.
Hit 'Print Screen' to do a screen capture.
Open MS Paint o/e and 'paste' the screen image.
'Save As' in JPEG format.
Repeat as need for other diagrams.
Crop/resize the images with a editing software and you're done.
That way, I think everyone will be clear
For the IOS/Spraybar, evaporation was intended so that some heat can
disperse from the system. It averages 31ºC now and the killies won't
like it. [When the tank warms up, none of my breeders throw viable eggs]
To increase evaporative cooling, I intend to install Henri deBryun
filters that doubles as partial cover, without having the lights get in
> How did you do with all the eggs I sent last year?
If you recall earlier correspondence, I had some problems identifying
bags with rubbed-off labels, but continued to raise whatever that did
hatch. I now have a nice group of A. ahli 'Kribi' and 2 pairs of ELB
N'tui, which means that the A. cyanostictum, A. alpha 'Cape Santa Clara'
and Pseudomugil signifer 'Townsville' didn't make it. The A. AUS Orange
became sub-adults fairly quickly and I've handed them over to Au to
further propagate the line.
The N'tui are 3cm now and despite having tried different setups; pH,
media, etc (except temperature), I'm drawing a blank. These are
beautiful fishes and I hope to establish a stable local population, so
any advise in spawning them would be appreciated.
I intend to try again with the cyanostictum, and other Diapterons, but
only if I can get the water cool enough. A few of us are working on
peltier-based chillers and hopefully it works as expected.
