  1. Default "Seal" broken on XP3


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a Rena Filstar XP3 (plus several in tank filters) running in my 75g mbuna tank. Something went wonky and I was taking it apart to figure out what. The part where the intake/outtake nozzles attached came off the top of the filter. I managed to get it back together, but now it seems the "seal" on the filter is broken. The filter is working, but I can tell that air is getting in the filter somehow because it makes constant "air bubble" noises.

    Anything I can do to fix this?? Perhaps put some sealant around where the nozzles attach?

    I would first assume this is simply trapped air down in the various media. This always happens to me when I cleazn my Rena. Sometimes it takes a couple days before all of it gets out.

    If there is a seal broken somewhere, chances are the water would be coming out. Check all around the filter casing with your dry hand to feel for any escaping water.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
