I need help. My old long bubble bar wasn’t making very many bubbles. I try blowing in it and cleaning it and it still didn’t change. I bought a new one and followed the directions. The new bar is doing the same thing. I am currently running a single great choice air pump 20. The line doesn’t have any kinks. What could my issue be? Thanks in advance.
Must be the pump. That is what I was thinking, but I wasn’t for sure. I didn’t know if I did something wrong or not. Do u feel air coming out of your pump? The deeper your tank is the stronger your air pump needs to be. Where did you get it and how much? I am looking on amazon. I can take a video of the bubbles if you want to see it in action? Noce. This is for my 47 corner tank. What are you running for a filter? I am wanting to upgrade. http://guppy-fish.com/emperor-400-review/
Those are nice. Someone was telling me about a good and reasonable canister for a fair price. I can’t remember it was, but I posted something in one of my other groups. Once I find out what site it was. I will let you know. It was a canister I think for a 75 gallon for around $60-$70. I could be wrong, but I think that was it. Yeah I saw inexpensive ones on. Amazon. As soon as my filters die I’ll get one.
Do you have a check valve in the line. I had the same problem and realized that over time my check valve was sticking. Bought a new pump and it was the same till I took the check valve out. Now it has lots of bubbles. Put the last be in the water, no bat attached… If there is little or no bubbles then you know it is the pump. If I don’t connect the bubble stone the pump seems to work fine, but I got it with the tank. I don’t know for sure how old the pump I’d Michael Pluta. I don’t have a check valve Joe Smith. Yeah pump seen better days it sounds like.. Sounds like you didn’t make a “great choice” with that pump…. Eh?..eh?
Don’t forget you will need water changes too! Here is my vid on the Aqueon Water Changer
Mine did the same, sounds like it still works and you could still feel air. Over time it just loses strength I guess, had to get a new one. Lol. I hear ya. Hate mornings. Fwiw I have a tetra whisper pump and I really like it. Have the one rates for 40 gallons powering sponge filters in both a 10 and 2.5 gallons and it does a great job. And quiet. http://guppy-fish.com/emperor-400-review/
Ok, HELP! I’m going crazy. 10 gallon glofish tank. Cycled it for like 2 months doing a fishless cycle with ammonia and at first I used a bottled bacteria to speed the process but it really just delayed the cycling process so that’s why I cycled for so long. Well, it was finally turning 1ppm ammonia into nitrates in less than a day so the next day we got fish. Well….I think I let the good bacteria die off cause ever sense I have not been able to get my ammonia under control. He has 4 small glofish and a tiny pleco that I regret getting so I got some ghost shrimp yesterday to help battle it. I have been doing 50% water changes daily sense then and even after the water change my ammonia level doesn’t get to 0…still a 1. How is that even possible?! I have even been adding the bottled bacteria stuff again and that seems to not be helping cause today my nitrates were still at a 0. How do I get rid of the ammonia? Multiple water changes in one day? Over feeding was an issue at first so maybe that started it?

Check out the shell-dwelling African cichlids. They can be pretty neat but need very specific water parameters. smile emoticon. Apistogramma’s or Gourami? Rams are temperamental little fish though. They get ich at the site of someone walking by outside. tongue emoticon Seriously though, their parameters have to be pristine. Was just in a store yesterday and the guy calls to his coworker, “When did our balloon rams get ich?! Everything was perfect yesterday!”
Checkerboard cichlids. .seen them on the wet spot then researched them. Pretty neat. Are you willing to upgrade the tank size in the future? I’d be happy to help with this topic. Yes, my next goal is a 55, but that won’t be for a few months. If you are good with water chemistry I’d suggest you do one of two things. Or both at the same time. Chemistry is something I also enjoy. Start with Discus. See how you like it.
