    I bought a fluval fx4 and decided that I hate the original intake and output. I purchased the following pieces to act as a replacement: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TQSN2NM - 3/4" ID x 10 Ft High Pressure Braided Clear PVC Vinyl Tubing https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J2FJQRQ -...

    I'm looking at getting an FX6 soon to go along with my purchase of a 90 gallon aquarium, but trying to find different pieces of equipment that are compatible with it's 1" hose is proving to be quite a challenge.

    I have a question about canister filters and uv sterilizers along with lily pipes. I figured out what side pipes/hoses, etc to make the lily pipe work (with generous help from you kind folks), but can I also have a uv sterilizer on my canister filter as well as a lily pipe? The one I was looking...

    Hello. I plan to get a Fluval FV6 canister filter, but I want to use a lily pipe. I found a 20mm or 3/4" one, but I know the canister filter hose is not 20mm or 3/4". It is one inch. I found the correct size clear aquarium filter hose from ADA. I guess my question is it possible to get an...

    Hi all! I’ve currently got a glass lily pipe in my aquarium, which is 90cm long, 35cm deep, 50cm high. I’m curious as to if that’s enough circulation to get water flowing around all the hardscape and plants. Followup question: I’m considering switching to a stainless steel inflow/outflow if...

    Hey guys, quick question. Today I purchased a canister filter and lily pipes for my 7 gal nano cube. I set it up and have it running simultaneously with my established Penguin filter. How long do I need to continue running my Penguin filter for before I have enough of the good bacteria in...

    Hello all, I've yet to find a direct answer to this and any related information I have found has been conflicting so here goes. I have an 18" glass cube (25gal) that I'm looking to set up, the materials for which I am starting to acquire. I'm looking into glassware for the inflow/outflow and...

    Hi All, I'm having a hard time finding glass pipes for the new tank I am setting up, and I thought maybe you all would be able to help. I have a new ADA 60F (just shy of 7 inches in height), and an Eheim 2211 filter (9mm ID on the outflow tubing, and 12mm OD on the inflow tubing). Should I be...

    I have a 30 litre nano tank (30cmx30cm base with a height of 35cm) with a pump that churns out 300 litres per hour (turnaround of 10 times an hour). As it is right now the flow is way too strong and I have to reduce it physically by stuffing glass wool in the nozzle, yet still the water jet is...

    I hope someone here can help. I ran into a cyano-slime algae/bacteria issue towards the bottom/front of my tank and I decided to try to improve circulation by changing my ADA inflow pipe (Poppy Glass inflow PV-2 13D) for the Eheim intake tube that came with my filter (Eheim Classic 2213)...

    Alright so my big question is what lily pipes should I go with for my Eheim 2211 Canister Filter? I have been doing some research online and honestly the ADA and Do!Aqua pipes are too expensive. I found this site where I can buy both the inlet and the outflow pipes for as much as one lily pipe...

    To combat the ugly bio-film and the white line on my glass I bought a lily pipe that claimed to stop bio-film forming. It doesn't work as advertise! I started looking into surface skimmers, but they are all bulky and ugly. After some hours of google-fu I came up with the solution. An add-on...
