As long as the return is pretty close to the same level as the intake, it shouldn't really matter how far down the water line is.

Back when I still used heaters I had a mass "jump". A malfunction was causing an electrical "leak" into the water. I can't say how many of my Mollies were on the floor around the tank. Other than...

I've had a submersible heater that I put in the sand in one tank for a while. No issues with it while I was using it. I stopped using heaters a long time ago though.

Not to detract from your fishes distress, but that has me intrigued... If I had a dehumidifier it seems I could kill 2 birds with one hammer. I could top off the tank and add nitrates at the same...

If the cylinder is sized properly it won't matter where the bubbles enter the stream, be it in the water line or halfway down the reactor or near the bottom. The cylinder should be large enough that...

I just recently had the same issue with the same model. For me it was not a clogged impeller, but the housing around it. I'm talking about the channel between the impeller and where the hose...

That's the complete opposite of my problems getting co2. At the place I previously got my tanks filled, i was lucky if they occasionally got my tank filled with as much as 3 lbs. I've left there many...

You'd have much better results using lava rocks than those marbles. You can buy enough to fill a 10 gallon aquarium at a hardware store for under $10.

Another thing to consider is what type of cell is that foam, open or closed cell. If it is closed cell ( I think it is) you'd have a real hard time getting it down in the water. All of our aquarium...

I would say it depends on how much water you do with a change. I don't even bother with dechlorinator unless I'm doing something like a 50% water change.

I can't say what it is, but I can say that it's EXTREMELY unlikely that your tank is supersaturated with oxygen. If that was somehow possible, then likely all the fish would be exhibiting symptoms.
