Yes, and it may not be defective at all. It may be the norm for the filter, I can't say. It's really not that loud, but next to my Eheim, there is a huge difference.

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

I never could listen to your sound, so I don't know. I just know mine are super quiet.

Did you put the rubber leg pads in? Lol.

Also-- are there bubbles coming out of the output?

Yes, I put the rubber feet on. There is occasional bubbles coming out. I think its getting air in somewhere, just haven't figured it out yet. It's like it can't clear the last bit of air out. Thats what it sounds like anyway.

I'm gunna order in an Eheim 2211, but I wouldn't fine working the kinks out in the meantime.

Just placed an order for another 2211 and purigen for both tanks. Now both tanks will be filtered by Eheim 2211's and a bag of purigen in each one. No heaters, I keep my house around 72-76 year round. Anyone want a zoomed?

It's looking nice!! Have you considered added any smaller rocks to add detail im the mini m? I think it'll add more depth to the scape

The tanks look great I'm really jealous of the DBP I keep seeing them and want one so bad but just cant swing it right now.

As to the zoomed I was just about to buy one for my 5 gallon your'e making me reconsider but they are priced so well it's hard to turn them down.

I have considered it, but I don't have any other stones at the moment. Where would you put the stones if I got some? I'm open to ideas.

Haha, ya I really like the deep blue tank. I'm considering removing the rocks and just growing moss in it. The zoo med is priced well, but the eheim is soo much nicer. I can't wait to switch it out.
The Belem is growing in well and algae is going away. I got a glass J in, as well as the autodoser. I will be setting that up so I no longer have to dose metricide every morning. I cleaned the tubing and pipes. Still waiting on the aquaticmagic lily pipes.

Filling in. I also have a berried OEBT and a berried Fire Red. Gunna have both tanks looking good soon. Also got the eheim 2211 set up on the 3 gallon DBP. Much better than the zoomed. 5 watts instead of 4, yet it provides about 4 times the flow.

Looking great.

I've been contemplating switching both of my 3gal tanks to Eheim 2211 but have been a little concerned about how much I'd need to turn down flow, since I use a spray bar for the Eheim 2211 on my 45-F and still have to turn it down a bit.

Do you find that it's manageable so far?

Now that I see others using them on these tanks, I think I could figure something out. Thanks for sharing.

I have the flow turned down about 30-40 % if I remember right. I will take a picture tonight of the valve. I think its a pretty good fit for the tank. The one on my mini m is turned down just slightly. I have the output just below the surface to keep a ripple. It may not be cheap, but I'd rather have the quality.

The moss is peacock. It's a little dirty. It has some biofilm on there and other gunk that needs some shrimp on it. I'm waiting for my ammonia to come down before I switch a few shrimp over. I think this may be a tank for my culls. I've also considered keeping OEBT's in the M and Fire Reds in here. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.

The SS filter will go on the DBP 3 gallon with the moss. I just haven't thrown it on yet because I am thinking about painting it black. A black stainless mesh would be pretty cool and it would blend in more. I don't think I've seen any yet, let me know if you have.

I really like how the Belem has filled in. There is some good deep root growth there which is great. Did you ever consider digging in some oscomocote+ capsules into the substrate to maybe promote more growth?

I don't even know what oscomocote is. I just use regular old ada aquasoil powder. Whats the benefit?

Default Re: ADA Mini M and DBP Dual Tank Desk-Filling In

I wouldn't paint it black you might fill in the holes enough that it will clog daily.
And no I haven't seen black ss mesh before.
Maybe I can buy some with the holes a tad bigger and spray them black.

I might try it, if it messes it up then I can remove it. You really should sell some black ones. I bet you could sell a few on here
