    Can any one recommend quiet power head? I need one to provide a bit of extra circulation in a 200L heavily planted tank.

    Hi, I'm looking to add a spray bar along the top of the back wall to my tank. To power this i'm thinking about purchasing an External pump which will be housed in the cabinet under the tank. Probably a 500+ gph for my 125g aquarium. Trouble is i'm quite new to this and have a few questions...

    I’ve been out of the hobby for a while, but I’m thinking of jumping back in with an 18” cube planted tank. I’m looking to set up a heavily planted, mid to high light tank with CO2 injection, but I’d like to incorporate some of Diana Walstad’s approaches with a soil bottom and high flow/low...

    Finally have my first tank up and running with some very active Pumpkins, and I finally get to sit down and redo my mini tank I picked up this week. It's a glass 2.5 gallon tank that's 12"L x 6"D x 8"H. Bigger than a bowl and long like I was looking for so they'd have a little room. I have a...

    I want to make a sump for a 29 gallon, regular footprint glass tank. I would like to use an empty 10 gallon, regular footprint glass tank for the filter. I have to build a stand, still, but I bet the top of the tank won't be much higher than five feet off the ground. Let's call the discharge...

    I have my Aqua Medic 1000 CO2 reactor inline with my eheim pro III 2075 right now and feel it is cutting down the flow a little too much going from the 5/8 tubing down to the 1/2 for the reactor, plus the bio-balls in there. So I am thinking of making a closed loop just for the Co2 reactor and...

    I have a small 2.5 gallon tank set up next to my bed and plan on using it as a breeding tank for shrimp. I want to split the air between a sponge filter in that tank and an air stone in my 10 gallon. Later I want to use the pump for a larger 10-20 gallon shrimp breeding bucket during the summer...

    I have repositioned my co2 ceramic diffuser right above the water pump in the small circulation chamber behind my tank, and hope that the pump will suck the bubbles in and blow them out into the water column, so will this work? I am speaking specifically of the Fluval Spec 2 gallon pico tank...

    So I have a current pump in my sump and I need opinions as to hoe to increase my flow. I currently have a Hydor koralia 425 ad a small Powerhead about 200gph hooked up to a spraybar. But it's coming out so don't count it for now. The pump in the sump is about 400gph. I have 6 options I can...

    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...

    There aren't that many examples of peristaltic pump dosing, so here's how I set mine up. Here you see some emptied out peroxide bottles, holes drilled in the caps for the dosing line. The inside is standard LDPE RO line, connected to a "hose connector" which bridges onto the Tygon lab...
