I own a Aquaclear 70 filter and have been running it for only about three weeks. This morning I noticed it making a grinding noise. It isn’t very loud, but enough so to be annoying. I don’t have snails or sand that can get caught in the impeller. Any thoughts?
So I walked in to the room with my 125g cichlid tank and the water was white as can be. Then I see a paint brush with fresh paint on it that my kids put in the tank. The paint is a white low VOC latex paint.
Not entirely sure how long it was like that. I would guess maybe an hour. I removed...
Side view #one showing the tubing. The powerhead I have has a large opening so the size of the tube is pretty big. Was not able to drill it to the side of the planter which would've been ideal. But since it's clear, I can hide it easily without too much notice!
Made this out of extra equipment at work (research lab) and a box of clearance eheim substrate with a Whisper air pump.
It's a secondary filter for my 5.5 gal Betta tank
