On that note, what is the best way to clean these? I cleaned mine using bleach but only soaked for 2 hours. It's hard to do overnight and keep the filter running unless I add some sort of connector. I may buy another one in the future, just wondering if bleach is the way to go. Some people say it's not ceramic and bleach isn't the best way, I also don't want to harm the plastic in the long run.
Mine may be fine, I know the bubbles are smaller than they were but it's hard to tell because I didn't have clear pipes before, plus it's now horizontal (only way I can make it fit) so the bubbles may be combining. Diffusion is fine but wondering if it could be better. Setup like over a year ago but switched up many things including tank size so can't go off bubble rate. I have a feeling it's slightly higher than it was on my 29 gallon, on my 20 long.
