    Hello group think, I have a 120 planted rainbow tank that has gone through some bouts with first ich and then green water, so I pulled the trigger on a Vecton 2 600 and now I’m scratching my head on how to plumb it. I was going to plumb in into the outlet of one of my two Eheim 4 Pro 600...

    Hi, I'm running a 100l shrimp tank, well balanced natural/Walstad tank style. Which means it has no active filter. But not too long ago I came across some Bamboo Shrimp / Wood Shrimp and they do like some flow! I introduced a little pump, photo attached. I got this pump because it is inside...

    I am about to set up a new dutch style 75 gallon and am planning to avoid canisters all together this time. I've decided to use the KollerCraft TOM RP3 overflow box.... I keep getting some conflicting advice on what size pump to use, as in gph. I see some recommending to not exceed 600 gph...

    Hi all, I'm having an issue with water flow in these tanks. I have another system that is exactly the same that works great, but was built by someone else. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Basically, there's filtration on the bottom, first through filter socks and then through bioballs. The...

    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...

    Hello all, I'm still setting up a 92G corner tank and am concerned about water flow. It'll be moderately planted with val, Amazon/Kleiner bar sword and crypts. Anyone have recommendations on a powerhead or circulation pump to prevent any dead spots? Or should I just aim the return hoses (from my...

    So I've got my hands on a 6ft x 3ft x 3ft aquarium. I'm thinking of a garden project as the size has restricted indoor use. I was thinking of putting some small goldfish and koi (I work for an aquatic retailers with a pond holding 300+ koi so I can shift them when size is too big). What my...

    I want to install a submersible pump inside an RG reactor, but how do you install the power cord so that it comes out of the chamber? Is there a valve that allows passage of the socket plug? I know I can install a powerhead inside the aquarium, but I don't have the space for that inside a 10...

    Hello all, I've never used a sponge filter before, but I"m going to get some for a couple breeding tanks. I'm just wondering how effective they are at filtering the water? And I'm wondering on what size (GPH) for a power head or what size of an air pump should I use? I'm probably going to...

    Hello all, When I only had gravel in my 55G tank, I would clean the gravel during my water changes. I would let the water flow to a 5 gallon bucket on the floor. The problem is I can only gravel clean about 4 buckets worth because I don't want to do too big of a water change. I was wondering...
