, thanks. I currently have the spray bar attached, but I'll look at the jet (still in the box). I wonder if there is a way to attach the spray bar to the end of the jet?
1. My XP3 is very
quiet. I have to open my cabinet door, stick my head in the opening, press my ear close and listen to the quiet whirrr my filter makes. Not dead quiet like the Eheims, but very quiet. That's an XP3. Your'e getting an XP1 (always assume the sale
), it can only be quieter.
2. If the adaptors are the same ID size as the XP's, then yes. But I'll let someone with knowldedge on this chime in.
3. They supply you with a funnel to prime and priming is really a no-brainer and mess free. Not only that, but I only had to prime the very first time I set up. When I restart my filter during water changes, I have only to plug it in. It re-primes itself. I may have to re-prime during my first filter cleaning, I don't know.
4. I went to the dollar store and got $2 worth of nylon scrubby pads. (make absolutely certain that they contain no soap or cheap dye). They provide as much surface area for bio filtration as practically any other media and are easy to clean and easy to fit. Add them after the sponges that Rena provides.
5. The strainer on the inlet cover on my XP3 is more than tight enough to preven my little neons and amano shrimp from getting sucked in.
