    Orchid RBA with KF nano kit

    So, last year when a vendor was doing a competition for a Mech with an Orchid + KF quartz nano kit, I like the look of it so much I bought one.

    When I got it, I couldn't workout how to fill it, so put the original tank back on and left it. Today I thought I'd give it another go. Sadly, it still has me stumped.

    Here it is:


    With the nano kit fitted, the bottom fill hole is blocked, so I tried top filling. The chimney is too close to the outside of the tank. it's too close for the juice to break surface tension and fill the tank.

    Perhaps another taller tank may be better, but I've not got the inclination to research any further. Pity, as it looks great.

    So, I've found a 40+ page discussion on all things Orchid on ECF.

    Will link if it's not against forum rules.

    Looks like a taifun nano kit could fit, and there are several replacement chimneys available..... dunno that I can be arsed though.

    would have to be real careful GT - that chimney is not exactly thick steel.

    I've seen discussed a slightly taller glass section, or a taifun nano kit, or slightly unscrewing the base.... or, or, or.

    too much faffing around imho. pity - would be nice with a glass tank



    What the hell, here is the link - 40 pages for a rainy afternoon: The Orchid clone has arrived!!! - Page 4
