    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all,

    Probably a very silly question but ....I just just bought a bubble disk and airline tubing for my tank (juwel trigon 180) But I can't figure out how and where to attach tubing to the filter?! Am i missing something?

    A bubble disk/wand/airstone attaches to an air pump. Unless your filter has this feature built in, you would need to get one of those.

    Oh! How can I be so clueless! I assumed there was an air pump as part of the filter...

    I'm sure your not the only one who has done that =D.

    Eheim make nice quiet air pumps.... Cheap air pumps can be noisy and dont last very long.

    Iv had my Eheim air pump for years !

    Hi everyone,

    I ordered a ehiem 200 air pump and it has finally arrived :D But it says that it should be hung above the tank? Really? I don't want a big black box hanging on my wall!! Would getting a valve to stop water returning up the tube mean that it could go in my cupboard or not?

    Thanks Again :)

    Sure. You can use a check valve to prevent a siphon from forming

    Default Bubble disk problem

    I just bought my first bubble disk and cant seem to get it to work correctly. Bubbles come out from around the bottom, but not through the correct area on top of the disk. Any suggestions?

    Give it some time and stones and other bubblers tend to improve. If not, a stronger pump can improve the results.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
