    I'm thinking about possibly trying out a Sunsun HW 302 for a tank upgrade. I do have a few questions though. 1. Does the out put rotate around different directions in the tank? 2. Does it only come with a spraybar? 3. Does the spraybar actually spray all the way down? I've had bad luck with...

    I attempted to design an intake for my Penn Plax Cascade that would work as both a surface skimmer and a regular intake simultaneously. I grabbed some PVC and cut long thin triangle slits around the top to make a typical surface skimmer, then attached a Tee to the bottom of the pipe. I then put...
  3. Planted Nano Tanks
    The way my tank is set up is that there's a barrel decoration in the back left corner; Anubias Nana in front of it (front left corner); Water Wisterias lined up throughout the back to back right corner; a small heater in between the Wisteria and decoration; a Marimo moss ball in the...

    Unsure whether to post my situation here, Planted Nano Tanks, or Low Tech forum. I have a 2.5-gallon betta fish tank that measures 12 in. x 6 in. x 8 in. However, the water goes up to 7 in. - 7.5 in. at most. After doing some strenuous research on the internet of whether or not I should...

    I apologize if this is in the wrong place on the forum. So I just read a thread about DIY modification about using sponges and media on Tetra Whisper and Aquaclear HOB filters but mine is a little different. I have the Aqueon QuietFlow 10 LED Pro and it is close to the Tetra Whisper but has 2...

    I recently acquired an AquaJapan AJ-30 all-in-one aquarium (pictures and info and rough diagram), and I'm confused about the design of the filter. 1) Is there a reason why the bottom intake slots would be so large (and actually larger than the top intake slots)? It seems like so much water...

    I got a 15 gallon, got in there an internal/submersible filter and a heater, there is no plants yet, but should I buy a water ventilation for water circulation? I don't want to make my tank crowded with all these equipment, it's not good looking, plus I might get a CO2 system too..

    Hi guys! I've been growing just java moss on drift wood in my little all in one tank. Recently, I added some shrimps and they've started to produce baby shrimps. I'm concerned that the filter intake may be too strong and could pull the babies in. Is there anything out in the market i could use...

    I modified an Odyssea CFS500 canister filter but decided that there was not enough flow for my 70 gallon planted tank so added a Supreme Air Fractionating Water pump model 9.5 B downstream from the canister filter to the inline plumbing beneath the tank. My hope is to use the air fractionating...

    I was planing on running most if not all my set ups with sponge filters but wanted to know if i would get the same balance of clean n clear water that i get from my HOB filter, not hazy like i see on some tanks.

    Hi all, I've had plenty of experience in low tech and reef systems but have decided to go down the high tech route. I'm in the process of setting up an old Juwel Rio 300 80 gallon tank which will have plenty of light, CO2 etc. I apologize if this has been covered ad nauseum but my search of...

    This is the one without the biowheel attachment. It is only slightly used (less than 48 hours) I do not like it because the outlet tube isn't long enough for me. I have floating plants and therefore keep the water level down from the top. This filter's outlet tube is only about 2" long. Works...

    I am hopefully moving into a house from a small apartment in August and with that comes the inevitable fish room. Outside of this room I have the opportunity to acquire 220G (72"L x 24"W x 30"D/H, drilled) and 300G (96"L x 24"W x 30"D/H) display tanks. I am planning the plumbing and electric for...

    Hi I have both a pressurised and DIY CO2 stytem running in my Fluval Edge 23l. When i moved to the pressurised system, instead of give up on the DIY which works well I though that it would be a good idea to output the DIY system via a sintered glass atomiser stone into the bottom of the hang...

    I have a Fluval 406 canister filter in my planted aquarium. Every time I clean it (every 3 weeks), the flow slows down significantly after about a week of being cleaned. When I first received my filter and set it up, it about shot water out of the aquarium because of its power. Now, even...

    Hello! I recently got 5 celestial pearl danios to add to my 10 gallon planted tank. I've searched around to try to give them the best care possible and I've read that they do no like high flow or a strong current. Right now I have a Marineland Penguin 100 HOB on the tank and I was wondering if...

    Hi! I'm totally new here, and a novice at all things aquarium, so please redirect me if I'm not it the right place. I have a fluval 205 that requires vigorous priming when I take it apart to clean it...the primer stick broke and I dismantled it before looking for help online (apparently if I...

    These 13mm lily pipes were never used. I am willing to trade for 1. some nice driftwood pieces for a 20 gallon (malaysian preferred) or 2. a nice assortment of moss and ferns. 3. perhaps shrimp (will have to wait until my aquarium is set up before trading). I can also end up selling them...
