    Help Cleaning Filter

    I don't think it's too fine, it didn't come with the filter, I bought it separately and it seems coarse enough.

    White Packets Came Out of Snail?

    About 4mm each from my memory. I used a macro lens on an iPhone. Macro lens, works very well.

    Need a Reliable HOB for 10 Gallon

    I don't want to necropost, but is there any chance you have ever encountered slow flow on that filter? It starts drizzling at the end of every week and I have to clean the impeller to improve the flow, but I still can't get it flowing very well.

    Help Cleaning Filter

    I have the Penn-Plax Cascade 80 Hang on Back filter, and each week it slows down to the point where water is just drizzling out of the spillway, every water change (that is, once a week), I take the impeller and its pieces out and wipe them with a tissue to get any slime off, this greatly...

    White particles - All fish are acting healthy and unbothered

    Could it just be particles that weren't cleaned out? Are they wriggling or moving? If so, they could be Detritus worms, which are harmless, and I'm pretty sure you can reduce their population somehow, but I forgot.

    I wish you the highest quantity of courage in your coming hopefully-valiant toil with those beasts.

    Filter Flow Weak

    Ok, I'll try that, I will see if the impeller can come off.

    Filter Flow Weak

    Yes, but is there a way too get under the actual impeller to clean the metal bar? Mine won't move enough to directly expose the part it rests on, please, if anyone knows how I can fix this, please tell me. I would think it would be common, as it's happened to 3 of my filters. The current one is...

    Filter Flow Weak

    Yes, I did a spin test and it doesn't spin as long as when I got it (if I give it a spin with my hand), unfortunately like most impellers I can't get under the actual impeller to clean it (or at least I think). It is always spinning when the filter is on.

    Filter Flow Weak

    2 Weeks at most, I've only had it for two, It's definitely not the media.

    Filter Flow Weak

    So I have had this problem with all 3 of my HOB filters (Two Top Fin Silentstreams, One Penn-Plax Cascade 80), the flow on them is great for one or two weeks, but then just slows down to the point of a drizzle. I've tried taking the impeller out and putting it back in, but nothing happens. This...

    Need a Reliable HOB for 10 Gallon

    Thank all of you so much! I looked at the Penn Plax Cascade HOB and at first it looked like one of those cheap ones, but as I looked into it, I might actually get it! I still have yet to look at the Tidal 35. Thank you all so much!

    Dead Betta, Help please

    I'm so sorry! He was so precious, I always remind myself that if the life was happy, even if short, it's better than a long and boring life.

    Need a Reliable HOB for 10 Gallon

    Thanks, unfortunately, the Tidal is way too big for me, looks great though. By not being sold on the Aquaclear, I assume you are suggesting it's a reliable filter, right?

    Dead Betta, Help please

    Also how old was he? It's really hard to accept sometimes (I have experience), but they are already 6-12 months at the store, so even a year old in care is a lot older than their wild counterparts, and can be a full lifetime, although 2-4 years is more common. Unfortunately, bad genetics can...

    Gamers, what Are You Playing?

    Probably about 5 years on any device, and about 1 1/2 on Java. Although I've known about the game for much longer.

    Need a Reliable HOB for 10 Gallon

    Thanks for the replies! I've looked at the Aquatech, and it looks nice, but the only concern is that it has no water flow adjustment, which is kind of vital for my 10 gallon (everything will get blown around). I looked at the Aquaclear and it looks great, I just need to make sure I will be able...
