So no one has this type of filter?

Okay... but now I've got a new question......

I was trying to remember just how much gph was needed for goldies...

Was it 100 gph per every ten gallons?

Thanks

heh I didn't see this topic before, in any case the aqua master is quite noisy and when it overheats the motor will tend to burn out and actually melt the propellers in so that it would require a new replacement of motor and propeller unlike other filters when they over heat.

eeeeeeewwwwww... I guess I'm not buying this kind of filter then, huh????

I was wondering also if it is reccomended to add bio-balls (is that what they are called?) into a filter....

How do I do this? Where do I actually put them?

Do I have to have an extremely large filter to accomplish this? as in---a larger space in the filter cartridge chamber? If so, what brands of filter is good for this?

I know I always have to many questions to ask.... But boy oh boy! I do love asking them! :)

Adding bioballs or ceramic cylinders is always beneficial. The bigger sized

filters like the penguins and emporers will have holding trays just for this

reason. I like the penguins and emps for the bio-wheel and size they have.

Other people like the aqua clear. I'm not aware of many people on here

having the aqua master from GFconnection, so I can offer no personal

expirience on it. Based on price, I would go with a Emp 400 vs. the A.M.

400. But, that is just me.

For the filter size, yes, it's 100 gph per ten gallons of water as a minimum. You

can go over this, but watch your fish to see if the current becomes to strong

for them.
