    You can place your airpump below the tank, all mine are. I have a 1 way valve (anti-syphon valve) on the airline that allows the air to flow in 1 direction and will not allow a syphon effect. They are about $1.00...

    Well I'm sending back the Rena 200. After a while it would just vibrate really bad. I'm going to take bignellm's advice and go for a fusion that can tolerate more gallons than needed. I think my little bubble wall is too much for the air pumps I have been getting that say they are for 20-30 gallons.

    Thanks guys!

    YW, Also; make sure your maintaining the Bubble Wall fixture. Mine says to clean and poke holes in it to make sure of it's continued effectiveness. Still haven't had any issue with pump or my wall fixtures. Congrats on choice, I doubt you'll have any problems. Bigger is better and quieter.

    Well I've literally used the bubble wall twice or so, and I've only had it for about 2 weeks so I have no yet done any maintenance to it.
    Although once I get the fusion I will probably poke a few more holes in it just to give it a little extra boost.

    Talking Fusion Air Pump


    0 Not allowed!
    Interesting! I just found a new website for fish supplies: Pet Mountain. I ordered a Fusion 700 air pump for $15.99. That's the biggest one. Drs. Foster & Smith wanted $29.99 for the very same model!!!! Unfreakingbelievable! ;<P

    I have, in my 55, a Sponge filter sized for an 80 gallon tank. I drive it with an older model Whisper 10-30 and a check valve. It's a Hydro-Sponge IV, good sized sponge filter. Little tip here while we're on this subject. On these Cannister type Sponges with a Lift tube and venturi most just hook the air-line onto the nipple at the top of the venturi and run it. A way to make the filter more effective and move more water is to attach a 1/2" diameter airstone with 3" of line to the bottom nipple of the venturi. This puts the stone down at the bottom of the strainers and it sucks more water through. I digress.

    If you can find one of these Whisper 10-30s get it!! I had to put an adjustable valve in line to cut it down to about 1/3rd. the flow and it'd still moving a ton of air!
