    I have two 2.5 gal tanks with small single sponge filters. I’m planning to get a gang valve with 2 outputs so I can adjust the flow if needed but not have it beat up the air pump. My question is: what air pump do you recommend for me? Also, some people do not recommend a gang valve and just...

    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...

    Hey all, My tank is looking good. Per some suggestions, im going to be investing in some new bulbs, DIY CO2 and eventually a canister filter. I was wondering though, Do I need an air-stone? I have a pump and airstone, I just don't like it. The pump is kind of loud and all the bubbles are too...

    Finally got my air pump yesterday, ran my line and seem to have a weird issue. Here's how I'm setup... Tetra 60 - 1st line goes into the 20 gallon, splits into 2 lines; one goes to a sponge filter and the other to an air stone. 2nd line goes into a small 2.5 gal tank with small air stone...

    Ive got a couple new quart bottles of metricide 30 plus (3.4% glutaraldehyde). This is the active ingredient in flourish excel. Excel is 1.5% GLUT so diluting this down to 1.5 would yield over half a gallon each. Asking $15 shipped per bottle or $25 for both Would also trade for some cherry...

    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 cleaned out the cabinets of my 125g and my 38g this weekend and that on top of changing up some of my equipment has left me with a ton of stuff I don't use or need anymore as well as a ton of stuff I had no clue that I even had! I'm really not trying to make any killer profit on any of this...

    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...
