    75 gallon new build I picked up a 525gph polar vortex canister filter because I liked the power for the price. (Plan on packing it full of high end media from Seachem.) The next thing I would like to figure out is how to have an external heating system. The guy at the aquarium shop handed me a...
    One thing to note when first setting up a brand new inline diffuser is this... It is absolutely normal to find your new diffuser producing some large bubbles. This is a natural process our ceramic membrane goes through unitil all the pores on the membrane are open. This whole process may take...

    Tank is 125 gallon High Light Fluval FX6 canister I am looking into a few systems but what stands out to me is the GLA GRO Co2 system with a 10lb tank. This is a $345 system but what stands out to me is it includes everything I need except the pH controller and I guess also an injection...

    Hey all, I have two xp3's, formally Rena, a DIY diffuser on the outlet of one filter and an inline heater on the outflow of the other. Now both of the filters are leaking when in use and I never had this problem before. What is going wrong?

    How do you know how much CO2 you're putting in to your system? With an in tank diffuser you can count the bubbles to get an idea of how much you're injecting but with an inline reactor/diffuser, you can't see anything. Do you just guesstimate it?

    I happened to stumble upon these pumps for CPU cooling. And they look pretty sweet for a DIY filter/flow setup. They all have huge head heights, so you'll probably get a higher flow rate in actual practice than for any similarly rated regular pump. Check it out. To me, these seem to be...

    I am swapping out my Marineland 350 pro for a used Filstar XP3 that I picked up cheap. Originally I had planned to pipe in the CO2 using an inline piece that I made. But I've read that CO2 has a corrosive effect and can damage the filter impeller or build up O2 in the cannister itself. Has...
