    Fluval 88g pressure level

    Well, that's a fair point. I have seen a few debates on here on that issue and have gone away with the view that this is a risky thing to do. I would be happy to hear other views on this. I am tempted to give it a go.

    Stumpy filter?

    Thanks for the replies. DavidW: do you mean using two sets of inlets/outlets? I'm afraid the tank is too small for that. Or do you mean using some kind of splitter to combine the flow of the two filters. Vador: I think I would have the same problem with that filter I'm afraid. I believe they...

    Stumpy filter?

    Hi All, Got a rather specific requirement. Because of space/aesthetic limitations I need a filter to run a 30cm cube that a) has to sit underneath the tank and b) has to sit on a shelf 27cm high with a bunch of books in front of it too (see below). 2016-07-14 09.24.53 by hotweldfire, on Flickr...

    Fluval 88g pressure level

    Thanks for the response. The space is extremely limited - 27cm to be precise. Do you know if a sodastream will fit? 2016-07-14 09.24.53 by hotweldfire, on Flickr Same issue applies to the filter, but I will put a separate post on the appropriate forum about that.

    Thanks both for posting. CO2Art, I understand what you're describing is how it should work but that's not my experience. The bubble rate in a system with variable pressure is set by the main valve, not the needle valve. This is because an EOTD will override the needle valve. As a result the...

    best cheap filter for a nano tank?

    Lads, I had a HOB. An aqua one 100 or whatever they're called. Great filter, totally flattened my hairgrass. Been looking for a HOB with a spraybar attachment but only ones available (off ebay) are way over powered for a 12l. May give the Boyu a try anyway.

    Nah, had a HOB Ryan. Keeps flattening my hairgrass. This is what I'm using at the mo but as you can see a bit oversized for the tank you gave me. 2012-7-8_12.53.45 by hotweldfire, on Flickr
