Question about Action Air Ornaments (they stay OPEN! - driving me nuts!)
Hi all, I am wanting to change over from just air stones to action air ornaments, I have tried several now (all from Walmart though) and no matter how much I adjust the air flow (and I do have the valve for adjusting it ) they stay open!!! Could this be just cheap air ornaments?
Thanks so much.

It could be that there is too much air passing through. They are supposed to work with a slow stream that accumulates and causes the action when the large bubble escapes

Sorry, I should have said, they DO close, but then open and pretty much stay open all the time. Perhaps the ornaments are just cheap. I will try buying better quality ones. (I can even turn off air flow and they stay open)Allergic to all things furry.
