Hey Guy! Is that my shopping list you posted above? I think some aiptasia would go nice with my hair algae which YES has already returned in the 135 How that algae made it through almost 3 months of dark I'll never know
I am about to build up a 6'x4'x30" lagoon for the garage the weekend after next. I was wondering what type of epoxy you used and recommend? Do you have any suggestions or comments on the construction of a lagoon from your experience? Any comments are greatly appreciated :jumping:
BANG, lets see some more detailed pics of this lagoon.... maybe some 360's and some close ups... this is really an interesting project!
BTW: how many gallons is it?
and what other aquariums do you own? and their gallons?.. do you own a store... if not you should LOL!
Definately an impressive setup. You definately know your stuff when it comes to this hobby.
I do recommend using a circular polarizer filter for your camera if your camera accepts attachments. It will help reduce the reflection on the waters surface making it more clear (and may help colors, too).
Do you do water change on it? If so how many gallons you change. This lagoon is also running water flow to a tank upstairs right? Looks awsome it would be nice too if you made of the walls of the lagoon with a clear panel so you can see it from the side.
I typically change a gallon or two a day while maintaining my Rotifer culture. Occationally I'll swap out about 30 gallons but not as often as I should.
Having even a single clear panel would have significantly increased the cost and complexity. That just wasn't an option.
Thanks for the tip! I'll try to find one. If nothing else I can just tape a filter from my SLR over the lens.
Your image confesses that you used a Kodak DC290 to take that pic. Kodak makes a threaded adapter (Item 867 5027) for this camera to take 37mm lenses.
Lens Adapter for KODAK DC260/265/290 Zoom Digital Cameras
A high-quality, molded slide-on adapter with twist-lock that allows these cameras to accept auxiliary 37mm screw mount lenses.
I'm pretty sure this link is safe here since SWF doenst deal in photo equipment.... removed
Bad news is that it seems like its a discontinued product and appears to be impossible to find. I tried to find you a link but every place I went to said they were out of stock including photo.net's classified section. Looks like the duct tape adapter is the way to go. Heh.
Excellent! Glad to have finally helped out somebody whos usually the one helping. Heh.
photo.net is a good resource for information on anything photo related. It even has user submitted reviews on businesses incase you were wondering about a particular company you wanted to order from. Some places get really nasty reviews so you can be forwarned before ordering.
Maybe I missed it, but how did you go through the liner for the drain? What did you do to seal that up? what kind of bulkhead did you use. Sorry for all the q's. I'm just a little weary of cutting through the liner. I like the liner idea better than epoxy though for durability though.
