Check again. Ken's has free shipping on $50+ orders. I recently ordered a Tidal 110 from him. It does take longer than Amazon, though.Vinh said:Ken has shipping cost but amazon free.l..Ac cost about close to tidal but Ac 110 has more flow rate than tidal 110 ...500/450 but Tidal is more reliable....and easier operate ..I bet if we hook this 110 to 45 gallon tank..It will blow up with 2x flow...
I just ordered a Tidal75 to replace a Marineland 350. Question; if and when you reduce the flow rate (say to 50% for eg), does that result in a corresponding GPH reduction of 50%? Just a little confused about that... thanksCichlidude said:The Seachem Tidal filters have these advantages over all other HOB filters.
- A flow knob to control 80% of the water flow. Each notch is a 10% increase or decrease so you can manage your water flow to slow your water so it stays in contact with your media longer which is better for beneficial bacteria.
Actually no. You want the water to be in contact with your media as long as possible to promote better bacteria growth. Having it blast through your filter not hitting your media until maybe the 5-6th time through is tough. I have both my Tidals turned to the lowest setting.Splaker said:This is what I figured.. but what advantage then is there to doing so? Do we not want maximum GPH flow?
Well on my 75 gallon I have a Sunsun 303B at 370 gph and a Tidal 75 at 350 gph.Splaker said:
You could run 2 Tidal 75's. You need less than 5" for the Tidal 75's in back.Splaker said:I'll look into the SunSun... I've only come across the name in the odd search... thanks... I guess that's my option - get a second filter. I am reluctant to go with 110 because it's bigger and my tank is fairly close to the wall and I am worried about space...
