If you wanted to run a bigger filter, why not use a lily pipe and turn down the flow? I still don't see the need for the spin.
Full flow through the filter without having to throttle I guess. Idk. It's up to the imagination. I don't have any issues with my 9mm pipe. Maybe I just lucked out.

Iphone update:

I added 2 Otto's and one Amano Shrimp. I love how these things have cleaned up my diatoms. The whole substrate was covered with diatoms, its almost gone now. Take a look.




I also picked up a male Scarlet Badis from The Wet Spot. I setup the Deep Blue Professional tank. I am using the zoomed 501 with an Eheim 2211 quick disconnect to control the flow, since this will hopefully be my Scarlet Badis fry tank. I ordered some Ebiken spring scissors and a starter portion of microworms. I already have detritus worms in the Mini M and I added some bloodworms to the soil of the Mini M. I am going to attempt to start a mosquito larvae culture in my backyard as well. The male Badis I picked up was in pretty rough shape. He's already looking more colorful and active a few days in. The female is being shipped today, and will be here tomorrow. Here is a few pics of the DBP. Yamaya stone and peacock moss. And yes, that is a Spine/Hip/Femur.

Alright, this Zoomed is driving me nuts. I cant seem to get all the air out of the thing. It has a rattle like there is air in it, the usual noise when it starts up. But the noise never goes away. I've tilted the thing and tried tightening all the connections. Air still is coming out every once in a while when I tilt it. If I can't get this thing to quiet down I'm gunna order another Eheim 2211. Any help?

Heres a clip of the noise:

Default ADA Mini M and DBP-Scarlet Badis Adventure-ZooMed Noisy Filter help??

Can you take the top off and take a pic of it?

I love these so much I have two.

Mine never spew air, so it leads me to think something is done wrong.

Yep. Try fiddling with the tube. Shifting it to the other side.

Make sure you connect your foam back before you restart it.

How much are you filling it before turning it on?

I've been filling it as much as I can without spilling the water. I then took a spray bottle and sprayed it down the output. The input and output level out and it should be completely full of water then.

Hmmm. How about your intake connections?

When I restart mine, I don't fill the tubes, I just fill the water to the top of the hole, then seal.

Did you properly use the screw connectors?

What are screw connectors? the hose crimps? Just took the thing off twice. Moved the tube, retightened the crimps, jiggled the filter. Still making the noise. Its not loud, but its not near as quiet as my eheim 2211.

Sorry you had a bad experience with zoomed. Not all products of theirs are bad.
