I have been in the aquarium hobby for at least 15 years and am just now trying an inline glass diffuser. I set up a new 33 gallon rimless tank with an Eheim Ecco Pro filter, UV sterilizer, soon to get an inline heater once Hydor gets their crap together. Anyone know when they are going to be releasing more heaters?
I really want the tank to be as clean as possible, with the only thing in the tank to be the glass lilly pipes for the filter. I purchased an inline diffuser so I don't have anything bubbling away in the tank.
This tank will be heavily planted, will I even need to introduce air into the tank, or will there be enough oxygen produced from plants to sustain the ecosystem?
I am now wondering if there is a possibility of using a T connector, 2 check valves and using the diffuser to introduce oxygen into the water when the CO2 shuts off.
Would the diffuser's ceramic disk be able to hold the pressure from the air pump?
Would it work if I put a pressure reducer - valve on the airline tubing to restrict the flow of air into the diffuser?
This is my first rimless topless tank and I'm loving it so far! I can't wait to get some fish in and worry about jumpers! Haha
I am trying to get the cleanest look possible for my tank, any suggestions are welcomed with open arms.
