air pump

  1. Trade art for air pump & airstone

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    I need an aerator and a medium or large air stone for a 10 gallon tank. I can do a 7x10" watercolor or ink portrait of your betta in exchange. Here is a link to my portfolio site with some examples of my artwork:
  2. Best air pump?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I have a divided 10g and I noticed that even with the filter and a huge bubble maker in the middle section, the ends of my tank get a bit stagnant. Side question: how do you know when stagnant water is an issue? I have some light biofilm on the surface, but generally no other problems...
  3. Under gravel filter pump?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Ok so I went out and got an under gravel filter for my ten gallon a while back. Box said it had everything it needed but it didn't have a pump. The box lied to meeee. And now I'm sitting here looking at my 20-60 gallon air pump I use for my goldies...It has a second air tube attachment...
  4. Topfin 10 Filter may be to strong, is an air pump ok?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I got a new Topfin 5.5 gallon tank (which is still cycling), and it came with a Topfin 10 filter. I'm starting to think this filter is way to powerful because when I sprinkle food, it gets whirled around and pushed to the gravel within seconds like a hurricane! I was thinking of buying...
  5. Filtration problems

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I bought my Betta a sponge filter and a little air pump, and I've been putting up with it's crap for too long. I have a real problem with white noise. It drives me absolutely insane. I didn't realize that an air pump would make so much noise (although it should have been anticipated :roll: ). Is...
  6. Air pump baffle on a 2.5g tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey guys. First off I really want a filter in my tank. I realize that there are people out there that say you don't need a filter for betta. Let alone a sponge filter with an airpump. But I'm OCD and care for my fish. And want the most ideal environment for him. That being said I want to get a...
  7. Goldfish help, need answers ASAP

    Other Fish
    :-? Okay, my friend won two goldfish (I don't know where, or how) but two small baby goldfish (they're adorable.) And I have this around 50 - 55 gallon tank, it's a really old tank with a powerful filter, a heater, and all that type of stuff. The filter has been running for a long time, but MANY...

  9. Is there such thing as a quiet, non-powerful air pump?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Yeah, so I've got a bubble rock for Cass, but every pump I've tried in her 5g tank, and every one I've found online, is too powerful and pushes her around. Even the little Fluval 5-10 gallon air pumps are advertised as "QUIET AND POWERFUL" and don't have variable flow speed. I'm trying to find a...
  10. Filter issues...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Good morning from the Canadian Prairies! Just a quick question here, but my filter is a submergible, and it is powered by an air pump. It's old... I think from 1994 or so... I use activated carbon in a filter bag on the bottom, and poly wool on the top. Lately, I have been noticing that my...
  11. Problem with sponge filter?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I own the SR2500 aquaone air pump that I couple with the smallest aquaone filter that the pet shop guy said would be good for a 30L (7-8g) tank. When I run it a stream of large bubble explode out of the sponge filter and the water is so choppy and horrible like a bad day out at sea. It nearly...
