Q. My BIO-Wheel isn't turning. What should I do?
Don't panic. Chances are the wheel is not permanently stopped. Irregular rotation, including brief pauses, is normal. As long as the wheel continues to move periodically and remains wet, it is functioning properly.
Thanks Ryan . I didnt even think of the water level affecting it. I do have the water about two inches below the output.
HI so I currently am cycling my tank & would like to run a new filter, a better one and eventually just have 1 filter. The one I have came with the tank & I don't believe its very good. I was looking on chewy and found one that I believe would do an excellent job however my tanks only 37 gallons. Would this be overkill? Is there such a thing with filtration to over do it. I plan on stocking
10 neon tetras
5 or 6 ottos
A few ghost shrimp & snail
& still uncertain of the centerpiece fish. Or if I could add a few more neons. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated
Your kidding right?? Filters don’t clean the water! Yes water changes help clean the water but so do filters.HI Lauren...
If you're willing to remove and replace half the tank water every week, your current filter would work fine. A filter doesn't keep the water clean, it only moves the water to keep oxygen mixed in it. The weekly, large water change is the real filter, because you remove the old, polluted water and replace that with clean water. Save your money and just perform a 50 percent water change every week.
