    Hey all, I have a pretty simple question but one I am kinda lost on because I have never used sponge filters.However after giving them some further thought, they seem to be the better choice in the tank im going for. But here’s the thing: I have no idea how to measure the effectiveness of an...

    My airstone has stopped working for my 5 gallon so I need to get a new one. As I was looking up new airstones on Amazon, I realized most require a higher wattage of pump. I have a Tetra Whisper 10 air pump (1.5 W) that is still putting out air, but not enough for my small Imagitarium bubbling...

    I use two diffusers in my aquarium, one for my CO2 and another instead of an air stone for my air pump. I am thinking about using a couple of check-valves and a splitter to hook both my CO2 and air pump to 1 diffuser. I'm wondering if anyone else has done this, and what sort of results they got...

    Hello, I have been in the aquarium hobby for at least 15 years and am just now trying an inline glass diffuser. I set up a new 33 gallon rimless tank with an Eheim Ecco Pro filter, UV sterilizer, soon to get an inline heater once Hydor gets their crap together. Anyone know when they are going...

    I only have a 56 gallon tank, and one airline tube running now. My wife was fine with the noise from the AquaClear50 HOB. She was okay with the rattling impeller on the Emperor 400 added to that. When I plugged in the bubbler, a Top Fin Air 8000, that was the proverbial straw that broke the...

    I recently rescaped my 120 gallon. Now I don't know if I just never noticed before the rescape but my fish are breathing really fast in the morning before the lights come on. I'm thinking there isn't enough oxygen. I threw a small air pump in there because I was scared they might die. I don't...

    I have six different Rena air pumps driving sponge filters and air stones in nine different tanks (one or two tanks per air pump). I am looking at replacing five of those pumps with one high volume pump and the Coralife Super Luft SL-65 is the main contender. Does anyone have any personal...
