    How long should I leave on the air pump?

    I don't want it on 24/7 as it creates quite a lot of noise. I wrapped a towel around it to make it quieter, but the noise is noticeable. Every few minutes it turns itself off for a few seconds before coming back on.

Today after cleaning aquarium, it even pulled air bubbles intermittently. My air pump was always set on its highest power by the way and...

    Newbie Confusion

    So I just got a new Juwel Rekord 700 as a birthday present and I'm very eager to set it up but I'm confused about a couple of stuff. I set everything up according to the instructions but was wondering whether anything else should be added pump wise? For example air pumps? Also are airstones...
