I think I might be misunderstanding you post Carol ???. But it doesnt stop your filter from working it just diverts the waterfall that an HOB would cause back towards the near wall so that it wont disturb the surface as much and also so there is not as much current within the tank (which i believe is better because their natural habitat is standing water.) Please correct me if I am wrong.Butterfly said:They are tropical fish, their natural habitat is usually 78-80 F. The filter removes/converts their feces and urine into less toxic chemicals.
Wow!! What an amazing improvement! I used it on my Whisper (2 - 10 gallon) filter, and the change is incredible. Before, Floyd was getting sloshed around if he swam anywhere near the filter "mouth," and had even been knocked to the gravel once. I had decided that I was going to have to buy a new "adjustable" filter, and was only plugging this one in when I was home so I could check on him frequently. Now I can leave the filter running 24 / 7 as it should and not worry about him.ebbandflow said:I found this article on the web... I'm gonna do it and I think its a good idea. I'll try it sometime tomorrow and post back if it works.
