Hydro Air Pump

Well, I ordered it.... Sunday and It came today it was really easy to setup......just aslong as you follow the pictures and not the text haha. I took some pics on what it looks like etc just encase anyone has seen them in stores or whatever but doesn't know whether to buy





Its a little bulkier than I expected it to be, especially as its for a smaller tank



I know its in a stupid place but I will be moving it lol.

Its actually made to be quieter than a normal air pump but its a hum that you can get used to also the glass has to be free of grit or sand in order for the suction cups to properly stick, which did frustrate me lol


Overall I am happy with the air pump but I can't say Elmo is, its funny watching him swim around the bubbles rather than through them but i'm scared hes going to get stressed and bite his tail more so instead i'm going to test Clark Gable to see if he likes them and if he reacts the same then I'm going to put it in the 12 gallon sorority

They would die, the tank doesnt have a light and the lid doesn't have anywhere where a light could go :(

Thats actually something I've been looking into. I want a lamp though that has a long head though so that it can lay across the tank, if that makes sense lol. What type do you use?

I just got a normal desklamp from wilkinsons (4 .99) and i bought a 25 watt bulb them wot i did was piled a load of books behind my tank and placed my lamp ontop of the books and bent the head of the lamp so it looked down into my tank (note my tank is a glass cube)

Why do you need an air pump for bettas if they breathe in air with their labyrinth organ?
