All over kick start...

Postby Mohammad Masud » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:44 am

Hello Old friends
its been a while since my last post to be exact around 2 years. About 2 years ago when i got married i was not able to give time to my discus they were neglected :fronw: . I overdosed formalin and kill all my discus including 2 breeding pairs that was a disaster all my efforts and hard work lost overnight.

I did not give up, after so many years of discus keeping i learned a thing or two. I am planning to start all over again but this time i will Inshallah make it very easily manageable so manageable that a 5 year old kid will say its a kids stuff.

I have planned to build an automatic water changer, this is the first line in my planning book :smile:

Please share you idea on how you keep you setup simple to manage.

Best Regards
Masud.

Hi Masud,

Sorry to hear of your troubles and congrats on your marriage :wink:

Good to hear that you are starting up again and I'm sure you have learned lessons that all discus keepers are taught by their fish.

I'm afraid I can't give you any tips on an auto water change system as I do mine the hard way :(

Keep us posted on your work and maybe you will teach me a thing or two.

Best Regards....................Tony

hi..
just for record or for my record... :smile: ... its been 2 more years since my last post where i said i will make an automatic water changing system which i finally made.
It took me few days to make it specially the electronics part, i also did all the plumbing myself :smile: . My AWC with schedule system is fully programmable with some safety features and some extra features like "feed my fish" where it will turn of my filters for a pre defined time etc...

Hope everyone's is having fun...
Regards

Hi Tony :smile:
i just took some pics from my phone to share with you.

The first pic shows float valve which is a safety feature. there will a float sensor switch which will stop filling the tank. in case that fails the float valve will shut off before flooding.

Hello Morten
great to hear from you. There is no sump, just the tank with 2 power head and my controller. the water comes from utility water line (ground water) and before going to the tank passes through a .5um PP filter and active carbon filter. have a look below the rusted Acqua labeled is the filter, the 2 green pvc pipe is for water in and drain. 1power head for draining and 2nd power head for cleaning the bottom and a pleco for glass cleaning.

i am staying in my father in laws house for the last 2 months, i visit my house once every 2 weeks for 1 hour or so. My mother just feeds the fishes, and alhumdullilah all my discus and tank is in excellent shape. aint that great :smile: :smile: :smile: . i have set it to change water every day :smile: :smile:
