Ug there has to be a way to lessen the vibration and silence my air pump lol. It is an industrial airpump :P I can run a good 4 tanks off of it but it is being noisy and heavy vibrations -_-

I just hope all that poop I can't suck up between the plants is going to fertilize them. Other than that, I love these little guys, they're so cute hanging off plants and things. And SAE gets too big for my measely 10g.

Amph, you said you CAN run 4 tanks off that air pump. Are you? Otherwise maybe get a smaller airpump. Or use a gang valve.

I am going to be running 3 off of it here soon. My little pump died so I had to replace it with what was on hand. This guy will work I just need to find a way to muffle it XD. Besides Its a miracle it works so well it is like 15 years old or more lol.

EDIT

its not the air that is the problem it is the pump it self is a bit noisy because it vibrates so much. So if I can muffle that no problems.

Smellie: Fingers crossed and prayers said. And Otos probably should be in groups of 3 or more.

Amph: Just don't cover it with something too tightly, it can cause the motor to overheat.

What about snails? Aren't they supposed to be good with algae?

merf... I don't know about snails. I don't think they could eat all the algae that loves to grow in my tanks. I am literally thinking of starting over with a new, big tank, and just... never turn the light on... haha... thats the only way I can stop/control the algae!!

{edit: OR a Plecostemus! But not enough room for the pleco in a divded tank >.<}

Plus I'm sceeered of putting snails in with my bettas. The bettas like to try to eat their faces off >.< Poor snail I had with Apache lived in terror.. :/ Apache was very violent... lol But don't worry I saved the snail.
