Fluval Ebi & the projectile backgound problem
I got a Fluval Ebi for my birthday! I already filled it up and added the substrate, but there's nothing else in it yet so I am trying to decide if I should take some action to prevent the 'background shooting up' issue that I've heard about.
Having looked around in the forum, I noticed a bunch of people reporting this problem. Then again, I noticed plenty of people who have an Ebi that don't have the issue so I'm not sure how common it seems.
Adding a bead of silicone across the top doesn't seem like it would help much. To really secure the back, I think it would be best to try and remove it completely then really secure it back to the tank.
But, is it necessary? I can't get a grasp on how common a problem this is. The lfs said they'd never heard of it, and of the 3 people I know who have an Ebi only one of them had the bg shoot out.
Any opinions/experience on this??
