  4. Hi everyone its been 3 months that I have not update my goldfishes. Pebbles,Angle,Jabu Jabu,and Pearl are doing well. Now my filter is dying,I went to petsmart and found a good one. Right now the old one is still running, but die this afternoon. And my brother got it to work. The water not running right and my tank is cloudy. So now I have a new filter not hook up yet,doing it tomorrow. I will show you new photos of my fishes before it got cloudy. New filter Pebbles sorry I could not get her tail in. JabuJabu Pearl Sorry Angle would not stay still for a good photo. By the way Angle dose not have black anymore she is orange,gold,and white on her belly.
  5. So after going through a great deal of trouble tearing down my new 55 gallon tank and restarting it before it had even finished cycling (due to snails), I finally plugged my two Aqueon Quietflow 55/75 filters back in... And nothing. Not a whirr, not a peep. Dead. I spent 3 hours trying everything I could think of to get them to work, and nothing. I've had them 34 days, just missing the date for returns. So now I'm out $80. ANYWAYS, now that I've stopped shaking my fists at the sky in impotent rage I need to get a new filter. My friend who keeps Oscars loves her canister filter and swears by it. She has a National Geographic cf70 uv filter. If I went that route I'd probably go up to the cf80, though that seems a little low, being rated "up to" 80 gallons. Maybe a Fluval 406? I want something I can rely on, that isn't going to break my back, and isn't going to break the bank. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated!
  6. Hello everyone, I'm looking for opinions and advice according the filtration of my future tank. It will most likely be 150cm X 50cm X 50cm (375 liter/roughly 99 USG) sized, though I might go with bit bigger, 150cm X 60cm X 50cm (450 liter/roughly 118,9 USG), once I actually see the house we are going to move and can measure the places and see what we can fit through the doors. When I first started to seriously researching what I would need for the tank I'd like, I couldn't find any filters that could reach the 10x GPH of the size of the tank I want (I know people in koko's like to recommend 10x for HOBs and 5-7x for canisters but I'm going by 10x rule for canisters as well since that's what they taught me here in Finland to do), so I turned my research towards sumps at suggestion of one other online hobbyist I sometimes chat with. However, after browsing through koko's I actually managed to find brand of canisters that could easily handle 10x GPH for either size of the tanks I might end up with. Now I am torn, if I should abandon the sump plan and just go with canisters, or if the pros of having sump (more water volume, more room for filter media etc.) would outrun the "ease" of just getting two canisters. I would appreciate any and all suggestions and opinions.
  7. Hi, I have this tank with built in overhead sump filter... http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/111600251839?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT And I did have an under gravel filter with scoria gravel over it, but have just taken it out of the tank (have I wrecked my cycling???). It held so much gunk, even cleaning the filter wool and vac the gravel every three-four days I could not get all the gravel vacuumed and clean. Ewwwww! So now only have a handful of the gravel left in the tank till I can get some sand in two weeks. My tank was on a slight lean, and the overhead sump filter would backflow ever so slightly. We corrected that today by spinning the tank around so that it faced the other way. The overhead sump has very limited room for any bio media. Once I have two grades of wool in there it is nearly all filled up. At the moment I have these layers (in order of the water flow), * filter wool 7mm thick? (washed weekly in old tank water & replaced fortnightly) * fine filer wool, about 2mm thick (washed weekly in old tank water & replaced monthly) * scoria gravel in a stocking/pantyhose, about 7mm thick (didn't have access to any media bags at the time) (never washed) * and some activated carbon just before it exits the filter (replaced every 4 weeks). I am trying to cycle the tank, and at the moment the tank has been cycling for over 3 weeks, and although I have been keeping the ammonia at .25ppm or lower, the tank has yet to show any nitrites. This is with the overhead sump, combined with the gravel filter. Tank conditions are volume 100L ph8.0 ammonia less than 0.25ppm nitrite 0ppm nitrate 0ppm temperature 20-24 degrees Celsius bio load 2 goldfish (started off with 6 and reduced to 2 approx. a week ago) 2inch each, and 6 12mm mystery snails water changes 30% every 3-4 days to keep ammonia lower than 0.25ppm (todays water change ended up being more like 70% due to the filth in the gravel) chemicals used: prime conditioner only, nothing else. filter: overhead sump 1500lph as above I have removed the under gravel filter and scoria gravel on the tank bottom today (it was a little too sharp for the fish to forage I think), and am concerned * that my tank is not cycling (am I just not patient enough?) * that I don't have adequate volume or quality of bio media. So back to my questions..... Is my overhead sump enough? Should I be looking to supplement the filtration (treating the overhead sump as mechanical filtration, and getting another filter for bio filtration) (it would have to be internal to avoid modifying the hood... more fishy space gone )? Or ditch the overhead sump for something much quieter (YAY)! Which filter type is the quietest? and which flow rate should I be after (considering my overstocking)? I did not want to modify the hood of the tank too much, it is not removable, and am on a limited budget, so a $600 canister is out of the question I really want to keep two goldfish, and they will be replaced with two fantails when the tank is cycled, so I know I need to be on top of water changes/filtration. Would a filter like this be super super super quiet? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/304B-2000L-H-CANISTER-FILTER-WITH-BONUS-FULL-FILTER-MEDIA-SET-NEW-/400873211528?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item5d55e7c688 Any suggestions? I have a feeling I might be asking the impossible ????

  10. Hi, I recently upgraded to a new 75G glass aquarium with stand. I also purchased one of those glass tops tat the light sits on and a cabinet stand for my goldfish. Here are some details: 75G Tank 2 large goldfish (approximately 8-9" each), one is 12 years old, the other about 10-11 years old. Current fiter is filter on my old 29G (Aquaclear HOB) which definitely needs upgrading and fast. I had no choice but to move the fish and the water along with the filter media into the new tank. I typically have green water and pH problems which I can assume are due to the filter size. I currently feed them one time per day and they eat only algae pellets due to a swim bladder illness in one of the two. Algae seems to keep him in good shape (knock on wood). I would like to get feedback on what the best filter would be for this situation. I seem to have trouble with the HOB because they do not seem to fit the tank very well. Not sure if this is due to the size of the filter but I kind of have to force it to sit in a certain way for it to work due to the thickness of the frame at the top of the tank. I am open to any suggestions particularly the type of filter to go for (canister, HOB etc) and brand that will work and last. Thanks!
  11. I am in the process of upgrading to a much much larger tank. The current filtration I have will not be sufficient so I'm looking at filters at the moment. My husband has proposed making me a sump saying it would be cheaper than buying a big filter and more efficient and less work for me (I have two surgeries coming up so will be convalescing for some time and the husband will be doing the cleaning/water changes - which is probably why he suggested the sump ). What I wanted to know was if anyone here has made a sump that worked well and if it's really going to be cheaper and better than a shop bought filter. The husband is handy enough but has never made a sump. Any advice or suggestions would be welcome!
  12. This video is a sample of water out of the 20 gallon Guppy tanks filter. I had another video but it got lost in transit Enjoy!!
