Calibrating Pocket pH meter
DIYThis article discusses about step by step procedure on how to calibrate and store a pocket pH meter.

PH meters are available in the market in various shapes and sizes depending on the application, accuracy required and convenience of usage.

The one I am going to discuss about is a pocket digital pH meter. The main advantage of this pH meter is it is small and easy to use.

pH is measured by dipping the end of the meter in the liquid and switch it on and slowly stir in the liquid until the LCD display stabilizes which shows the pH.

Building Large Plywood Tanks
DIYThe Concept

Even though I am fascinated by planted aquaria I have always had a soft corner for cichlids. My wife and children too love cichlids what with having kept Red parrots in our drawing room show tank for a few years. The cichlids made way for the planted aquaria as time went by.

My interest in keeping cichlids was renewed when I had to go on a business trip to the USA last year and I decided on something rare – Lake Tanganyika Cichlids. These were never seen with aquarists in India. I returned from the USA with Julidochromis transcriptus, Neolamprologus brichardi, Neolamprologus leleupii, Tropheus moori “bemba” and Altolamprologus calvus ‘pearly white’. I introduced them to a tank which was set up with a lot of rocks and was happy. Alas one morning I found every single one of them dead. This was devastating. I introduced a couple of platies into the same tank after removing the dead fish and without changing water to check on any possible cause for the deaths. The platies lived in the same water for over a month.

A bit later I found Julidochromis regani and introduced a dozen of them to this same tank and managed to get Neolamprologus brichardi again. The brichardi's this time around settled down and as usual went on a production spree. Soon enough this 3 x 2 x 2 feet aquarium proved too small.

I now decided to build a large aquarium to house the Lake Tanganyika Cichlids. I found that the largest aquarium I could accommodate was 8 x 2.5 x 2.5 feet and that was what it would have to be.

DIY Filter
DIYHere is a summary of the DIY filter sump that I made for a fully functional planted tank that I have. This tank, measuring 72 x 18 x 24 inches and holding about 500 ltrs of water, was filtered by a Fluval304 external canister. After 3 years of operation, the filter failed & spares were not available. The worst nightmare for any aquarist is filter failure. And it happened to me!
