    More filtration needed?

    Go check out Aquarium Co-Op for their medium sponge filters. I bought two plus adjustable air stones. Very cheap and work wonderfully.

    More filtration needed?

    I have a 29 gallon tank running a Tidal 55 HOB filter along with 2 medium sponge filters. I use an AQQA dual output air pump which even at its lowest setting, runs the air stones quite vigorously. With the Tidal, as with some others, you can adjust the flow. So far, no complaints.

    Internal Cannister Filter?

    Does anyone here use internal cannister filters such as Fluval U series or MarineLand filters? What are the pro and cons of these filters? Do they filter on par with HOB filters? Thank you Steve

    Glass/ Plexiglass hood?

    How can you be sure. I’ve seen reviews that say the 29 gallon tank glass hood by Aqueon doesn’t fit

    Glass/ Plexiglass hood?

    The measurements are listed at 12”w X 30” long. All the glass hoods I’ve found measure at 11 and 3/8” by 29 and 2/8. My exact dimensions are 11 “ and 3/8 by 28 and 6/8 “ Nobody seems to have the length. Even top fin who makes the tank sells a glass hood that doesn’t fit. Frustrating Steve

    Glass/ Plexiglass hood?

    Cannot find an exact glass hood for my 29 gal tank. Is making a plexiglass hood an option? Has anyone here ever done this? Is this a thing? Thank you Steve

    Internal aquarium power filter?

    Nice. But aren’t hang on back filters still somewhat obtrusive? To some degree, any filter would be seen except canister filters Steve

    Fish meds?

    When introducing new fish, should one add meds (ich, eryth, or tet) to the water as an aid to ward off potential illnesses? Or is this just hooie? Thanks Steve
