Can these be purchased without the airpump? Also I couldnt find the light pictured on the website.

Do you have any pictures of how the pump connects to the breeder box ? I cant for the life of me figure out how it connects, and there were no instructions

Hi Toby. There should be instructions on the box. Are you referring to the air pump or the water pump? Please let me know and I'll get you those details asap!

Hi Charlene,

See photo #2. the airline tubing connects to the intake tube right near the base. The bubbles drive the water up the intake tube into the breeder box. Hope this helps. I have a simiarly sized breeder box of similar design except it didnt come with an air pump, hose nor check valves...

Or if you have the water pump there's an adapter that plugs directly in to your tubing like so...

I just set the same one up for my betta, and the inline airvalve controls splashing and volume pretty well. I have it screwed down quite a bit. Its a smallish air pump tho, but a bleeder valve would help a big pump.

If I decide to do another one, I'll be giving the Finnex a serious look

29g heavily planted SA: driftwood, Ram, Angel, Tetras
10g Tang: rock w/anubias, Caudpunk trio
8g Nuvo: Cherries, driftwood, java moss and fern
10g 3x divided Betta planted

I keep stepping on Lowe's thread here

If you need some help modifying it, send me a PM, I modified mine to fit a Fluval Chi.
