  1. Default An AquaClear 110 Media Layering Query...


    0 Not allowed!
    Is it okay for me to layer the sponge block first, then the two small sacks of BioMax pellets on top of the sponge, in my AquaClear 110's media basket?

    Normally, I'll run two bags of Seachem Purigen on top of the sponge, as well, before the sacks of BioMax, but I did not purchase any yet...

    Is this layering procedure correct?

    Oh, also -- since I recently set up a new 60 gallon for my fancy goldfish, and this tank is very HIGH in terms of its volume distribution, the intake stem on the 110 is kind of short under the surface of the water, whereas I was able to attach an extension tube to the other HOB I'm running on the tank, an Aqueon QuietFlow 55, so that reaches in deeper to the bottom near the substrate...is it okay that my AquaClear's intake tube is kind of on the short side under the water? I didn't have an extension tube for it...

    Does this matter?

    Yes.
    Nice edit.
    Since you have one filter that reaches near the bottom, having one that reaches the middle is fine.

    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Yes that the layering of the media is okay?

    Why do you say "nice edit"?

    The AquaClear's intake strainer isn't really falling "near the middle;" it's falling pretty short in the tank, so I'd say near the upper region for water intake...is this still okay? So you wouldn't remove the extender tube on the Aqueon filter, making it shorter like the AC?

    Thanks for the quick reply, as always, BTW.

    Because I answered your first question before you edited.
    I would leave the Aqueon alone. Yes, the yes was for the "layering of the media" in the AC110.
