It took me many hours to plow through this very “exciting” filtration thread. Most of it was over my head, but I read to the last post. I then sat down in front of my tanks and studied the way the plants swayed, how the fish chased the food around, how the bubbles from the HOB moved through the tank, and what appeared to be dead zones. I’ve had no problems with fish, plants, algae. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it?
UPS says my new Eheim Classic cannister filter will arrive tomorrow. I think it may have been subliminal messages.
