I don't think any fish will be sucked into that pump, unless you have fry in the tank. I usually stick it to the front glass using the provided suckers and fish stay clear of it.durtydurty said:I bought the same pump form ebay and it arrived today so I'm gonna try it out tonight.
Is it gonna be alright to put straight in the tank and not worry about sucking up my fishes?
Depends on the pump design, the pump on this post doesn't need that, it will automatically fill with water and you don't have to fill it first, it will pump straight away.Superman said:Top tip:
When going to pump the water out, you'll need to fill the hose first. So attach it to the tap and push water through the pump until all the bubbles are pushed through.
Otherwise, your impeller will only rotate in air!

Just a warning, water changes become very boring! No more bucket spills all over the place etc... you been warned!stuworrall said:cheers paulo, looks like a nce bit of kit and will please my wife no end with no buckets!
Hi Matt, when I first tried it leaked so I have never tried it again as it makes no difference to me if its inline or in the tank.a1Matt said:I recall that in an earlier post you mention that you don't use it inline but submerged. Have you since tried it inline? Is it quiet?!
I add it when I remember to add it LOL most people don't seem to add anything these days.jay said:So do you add de-chlorinator as you fill or after you finished? I've been doing pretty much the same thing, just straight out my window through a hose and back up again from the tap. So easy!!
In theory you could I guess, you just attach the shut off taps to the filter tubbing, but then I don't like any stuff on the filter tubbing let alone more things that could go wrong and flood the placekeymaker said:What do you think of this?
