Today a few goodies arrived, and the aquarium gets another big change up.
First thing is that the salifert No3 kit arrived, and I have confirmed between the two test kits 25-30ppm AFTER the 70% WC.
I'm definitely not adding any No3, at this point, but I will monitor every other day to make sure I'm not spiking before WC next Sunday.
Second goodie arrived....a Powerhead! I had a little debate going over in equipment subforum between Jeboa pp8 and pp15 controllable powerheads, and I decided to go with the pp15, because 8 feet right???
Well here's the video, taken on LOWEST constant setting. (I have since switched to running the flow directly against back wall, much better for the front swimming fish and plants)
It will be good to be able to crank up before a WC/ Filter clean, but a pp8 would definitely have been a better choice. The GPH is highly under-reported on available literature. More like 1200 gph at lowest setting
That said, I am super happy with the amount of crap that this pump stirs up and keeps in suspension now that was just sitting everywhere before. The smallest fish are not having a tough time swimming and the visual full 8' circulation has to be better for the system.
Now to watch for how the new surface flow affects CO2!
