In response of your other question, which background plant can you use instead of vals - I'd recommend crypt balansae. Beautiful, tall, easy to grow plant.

Yes, it works. I have raised my odessa barbs in a Fluval Chi (they spawned in the 55g, but I collected the eggs and fry and put them in the Chi).

I would still recommend replacing the stock filter...

Mystery plants ID

Can anyone ID these two plants ? I got them at our last swap & meet gathering, and whoever gave them to me didn't know what they were. They are super slow growers, and great algae magnets :(

I have a litle bit more room in the back for the nozzles, but the canister itself has to be less than 13" to fit in the shelf underneath the tank.

Thanks. Amazon lists the CF300 as 14 x 9 x 9.5 inches, but I guess that's the size of the packaging - which is completely useless information !

I need a canister filter under 13"

Is there such a thing ? Can you recommend one ? It is for extra filtration in my 55g (which already has an aquaclear 110).

Thanks,

P.

In my case, I have observed a better growth, less algae, and overall better plant health with this setup. I would love to have other TPT users try the same thing and post their results.

Well actually, you get less surface disturbance compared to having the sponge filter on its own, since most of the bigger bubbles don't get a chance to reach the surface.

The tank (a 60g tall) also has an aquaclear 110 so there's really plenty of filtration. However, without the Koralia there are a still a few dead spots, hence the additional circulation.

Well I would be running the koralia anyway for circulation in the tank. It's simply about its positioning (right above the sponge filter).

Well yes, especially if you're talking about pressurized. But it would be pretty cool if it could be a viable alternative to yeast-based methods.

The video below shows an experiment with a sponge filter, where the big air bubbles are being spliced into thousands of tiny bubbles by a small Koralia circulation pump. The (possibly stupid)...
