Using a 5lb tank for the pressurized co2 system. All setup and running now through a DIY cerges reactor. Broke the bubble counter during install so awaiting a new one. But, per the drop checker, I...

Not likely. I measured (measure twice, cut once!) and I used a flexible tube instead of a pipe anyway. So it would simply bend. It seems to very firmly tighten, and with the wrench I was able to...

Thanks for the info!

So I actually didn't use the wrench at first, it didn't even come with one. I hand tightened it. When it leaked (as soon as I got it up and running) I went and grabbed a...

Yep, tried that, no difference. Though I didn't expect it to do anything since the threads are so course. It's weeping past that o-ring and that's the problem.

I'm tempted just to seal it up...

Hahaha.

My wife tells me all the time how relaxing it is to sit and watch the fish. This is often when I'm arm-deep in tank water, toting a python water change hose around stressing about some...

Culligan water filter housing (Cerges reactor) weeping

Hey all!

So I built a cerges reactor and the housing leaks, or more 'weeps', around where the top screws into the base. I replaced the o-ring, used a wrench to get it as tight as possible, etc.,...

It just needs to work with standard co2 fittings and equipment, like a bubble counter and a glass diffuser (what I'll likely use in the 10g)

Not sure. Right now, trying to dial in the 29g before I even think about running anything down to the 10g. But probably 40 or 50 feet, in order to go completely around the room.

Yes that's how it works but sometimes it can be simultaneous. I'm doing a fishless cycle on a 29g right now (which means dosing ammonia directly until the tank tests 0ppm ammonia and 0ppm nitrite)...

You might consider a larger school.

In my experience though; that's just what they do. I've always had Cory's in one tank or another and they kind of do their thing and like to be left alone. If...

For sure.

It is confusing. I'm no physicist but I can't imagine how in a 73 degree home with LED lighting over the aquarium the temp could be 80. There's a lot of energy that would be needed...

If there was carpeting it would be easy. Pull the carpeting back a bit, drill underneath it.

I have hardwood floors and stained wood baseboards. Just don't wanna deal with drilling there.

Most thermometers make a 'good guess'. It's possible even for new ones to be wrong. Do you have another thermometer to compare with? I've put three glass thermometers in one aquarium side by side...

Do you have a good top on the aquarium? I had no top on my 29g until I moved and it ended up near a window. A good glass top that covers as much of the water as possible is a MUST to combat...

Oscars are plant destroyers. They don't eat them, but they love to dig them up.

At any rate, a 55 gallon is too small. You need a larger footprint. It's tall enough, and with enough filtration...
