    Hozelock filter lamp change

    Do I need to get the filter above the level of the pond to stop water siphoning out once I remove the lamp housing? Going to change the lamp on mine and want to make sure I don't empty the pond over the garden .

    Recommendation for Roma 125 / noisy filter

    The tubing on my Oase doesn't go straight up and it's super quiet. I've tidied it up quite a bit now once I moved the shelf and previously had more links and bends in them.

    Removing an internal filter.

    I did order a fluval but exchanged it for the Oase, the inlet and outlet pipes were a bit higher so the lid didn't sit flush and would have need some modifications to the lid.

    Removing an internal filter.

    Easy to do in the end, suggestions used in the thread. Went for an oase biomaster therm in the end so heater wasn't in the tank.

    Unless you buy a calibrated one you could buy anything cheap. Found this on a simple search but not bought myself

    I was considering the Fluval 307 but decided having the heater in the cannister was a better idea on a smaller tank. The prefilter is brilliant, I did my first clean this week and the internal sponges were pretty much spotless, so maintenance is going to be so much easier.
