    Blanking Off The Small Tube In Fluval Fx5 Lid, Cheap Simple And Quick

    Awhile ago I had the mist of air bubbles constantly coming out of my fluval fx5. Read info on what it is and came up with the result that the small tube in the lid some-how creates bubbles? (not a clue) The new fx6 doesn't have this small tube and if you ask nicely fluval will send you a new lid...

    I have a 20g all in one Blue Planet tank which was cycling hut then the filter died.

    Issues With Fluval U2

    Upgraded My Fluval Chi 5G Lighting! Heyooo!

    So I was talking about it the other day, and ordered some of the SMD5050 LED light modules, and although they are no where near the high powered LED lights, they are a good DIY light that seem to run at fairly low heat, will grow low light plants very easily, and are great mostly for aesthetics...

    Harlequin Rasbora Dying One By One

    I just bought 5 harlequin rasbora for my new aquarium 3 days ago at petco. They seemed happy and were very active, and ate well. Two died today. The first to die had two tiny white specs on his fins, so I thought it might be ick and immediately started introducing a low concentration of aquarium...

    Filters And The Likes.

    Just picked up the Fluval FX6 for £190 instead of the normal price of £299.99.   Obviously super chuffed and happy as it's still sealed and brand new.   But what are your opinions on Fluval and what would be your filtration of choice?   Favourite brand and model?
