    Best place to put Co2 Diffuser/Drop Checker

    Good morning all. I'll start off by saying I am new to Co2, but I have done research on it, however; I'm facing some... maybe not issues... but... ones that potentially can CAUSE issues down the road if I can't get this figured out? I bought a Co2 system from my LFS for this tank, its an...

    More filtration needed?

    When my fish would die in the past, I would always find them in the filter intake. Now I haven't had this problem but I'm afraid my fish don't have enough oxygen. Because it's a 10-gallon filter in a 20-gallon tank. I can't replace the filter because that's where most BB is stored. I'm thinking...

    Positioning of Circulation Pumps for Planted Tank

    My new 193 US gallon tank is arriving next week. It'll be heavily planted and co2 injected, running a Fluval FX6. I've had problems in a previous 120 gallon with dead spots, particularly at the bottom of the tank and so will be using a couple of small circulation pumps to move water across the...

    Filter Question

    Hi, I have a 105L tank, long. The filter on it is a 1000EF all pond solutions one that, according to the website has a flow rate of 1000 litres per hour. I was just wondering if this is too strong? The flow coming out of it is pretty hefty but it has been running for a good couple of months...

    Debris in the water

    Hi, I've had trouble with floating debris in the water since day 1 many years ago. I even got a new filter, an Eheim Classic 2260, which is more than enough for my 540l/120gallon. I've tried fixing the flow in the aquarium, putting in wavemakers and putting in a ton of filter watt. Someone...

    Quiet Filter Possibly?

    Hi. :DSo I just got a new filter, and I set it up and everything. It runs just how it's supposed to. I just want to make it quieter. I have my tank under my loft bed, and so I sleep right on top of the noise. It's not really the grumbling sounds that the filter makes as the mechanics run to pump...

    Q's on Ferts, flow and making a new hood

    Hi As I mentioned in my previous thread, I'm about to strip my my tank and start again going high tech with a good substrate, co2 and new LED lighting. I've been buying everything I need but still need to buy a list of things and some of them I'm still researching. I wonder if anyone could...

    A Few Issues - Co2, Ferts, Flow & Algae

    Hi I have a few issues and questions about my set up. My tank has been running for 2 years. Up until now it has not had Co2. It has always had live plants (swords, crypts, cabomba, anubias) and has bogwood and a few rocks with part sand part gravel substrate. Up until now I've been dosing...

    Suggestions On Water Flow In Tall Aquarium

    Hi,.   So let me begin by apologising if this is in the wrong section. I wasn't too sure, but presumed this to be quite a basic question (shame I've ran out of ideas!) so placed it here.   Anyway, I have a custom made aquarium, at 60cm tall, 54cm deep and 76cm long, this one is quite unique.  ...

    Eheim Filter / Tank Size

    Hi Paul, the flow would depend on what fish you are going to stock, some like it fast moving while some like a gentle flow My inlet is about 2inches from the bottom of my tank & my out let is at the opposite end of the tank approx an inch below the surface

    Get In The Flow!

    Hello all.   I recently got into a discussion with some one on here that has really got me thinking about water movement and filter/powerhead, direction, speed, angles, diverting flow etc. I know every set up will require different flow rates and head angles to suit the species and tank size but...
