  1. Default Breaking up current


    0 Not allowed!
    I've got 2 AC 30s running on my 20 gallon tall and am wondering about a good way to break up the current? When they are on full the current moves is fairly strong and pushes my plants around, I was thinking attaching a piece of milk carton or 2 liter bottle but not sure of how to do that. Thanks for the help.

    29 gallon: moderately planted with 9 bloodfin tetra, 1 german blue ram, 11 glow light tetra and 1 BNP
    10 gallon QT: empty

    Cut top and bottom off a pop bottle, then cut it (length wise) so that it curls up tighter. Tape one end to top of filter and pull the other end down infront of flow... adjust as needed

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Two different ideas, same result, I like the 2nd one better since it doesn't sit in the water as much, just blocks the flow

    Why not dial the flow back on one or both? A lower flow rate will still provide the benefit of the additional media....

    That's what I've done for now but I also want a bit more aeration. Thanks for the ideas I'll see how they work.

    What makes you think that the fish need more aeration?
    I can't imagine how you'd need more aeration with 2 filters on a 20 gallon tank, but good luck in your endeavor.
