Silent corner filter for office.

What about a small Eden canister filter?

Those internal filters like the Aquael you linked are nothing more than powerheads that move water around. They don't offer much filtration capabilities.

True. Guess there's not much sponge for biological filtration on it :/ I was hoping it'd act somewhat like a sponge filter minus the noisy air pump.

Eden canister looks legit, thanks @jayc

You're welcome.

I have the Eden 511. 600L/hr.

Silent as can be, and can cope with filtration for my 60L 2 footer breeding tank.

but the 501 I linked should be sufficient for a 30cm cube.

I use the Eden external filters. I can highly recommend them.

Looks like it's settled and I'll set up an Eden! Thanks guys, I reckon you've likely saved me a lot of frustration!

I didn't realise they still made the Eden filters. My AquaOne internal job on the 29L AquaOne kit isn't coping so well.

      Hey guys, I’m going away for a few weeks and having a neighbour take care of my tank, as they are already gonna be caring for my cat during that period. I’ll be away for 2 and a half weeks, so not a huge amount of time, but the neighbour doesn’t have any experience with fish or shrimp tank maintenance.
      The tank will be fine without a water change during that time as long as I do one before I leave, I know that, but my 2 main problems are feeding and stopping my intake sponge from clogging up.
      For feeding I was considering getting a couple of pill boxes, like the ones that have seperate compartments for each day of the week, so I can set a certain amount for each day, and which foods.
      But for the intake sponge, I’m pretty stumped. My current intake is a sponge filter connected to the intake pipe, but it’s been clogging up once or twice a week due to how fine it is (and how messy my fish are). When it’s clogged, it puts strain on the canister filter’s motor, and that’s not good. I don’t trust her with cleaning it safely, plus I’m only paying her for 5 mins in the morning, and 5 at night. I’ve considered a mesh intake, but it looks like it could hurt a fish if it went past it quickly... plus I can’t check the size of the inside where the pipe could go as the only one I’ve found would have to be posted.
      Are there easy alternatives that I wouldn’t have to mod, or do intake sponges come in courser versions? (I haven’t checked).
       
      Any input would be appreciated!

      Hey guys!
      Just wondering if any of ya'll have experience keeping filter feeder shrimp? They're fairly common here although most of the LFS tend to stock lethargic specimens that seem to be on their last legs 😕 Just need some advice on how to spot and pick out healthy specimens for my community tank 😄  
      Also, anyone know where I could find the less common wood shrimp on steroids? Let me know 🙂

      Hi folks,
      i have received some beautiful CRS from heavyD today and i have a situation with the current being too fast for the shrimp to swim very well in. I have the spraybar just below the surface and angled slightly up for maximum oxygenation but it still seems to be a little fast at the lower level of the tank, i can see moss swaying around and the shrimps being blown across somewhat when they try to swim. There is quite a "whirlpool" effect happening.
      Aside from replacing the canister with a smaller one; how does one go about lessening the current inside the tank? I thought of 2 solutions but I don't know how wellthey will do or exactly how to implement them -
      1)I could make more holes or make the holes larger in the spraybar?
      2) cover it with a stocking or sponge or something to slow down the water as it shoots out the holes in the spraybar.
      cheers
      love n peace

      hey gurus,
      where can I get a decent RO filter?

      Hi all,
      thought i'd post a quick description of my experience with the fluval q2 "quiet pump"
      the pumps have 2 outputs and a great flow-rate for the price, i bought one of these and it was extremely quiet - i was very impressed, a few weeks later i got another one, fantastic! a few weeks later again and the older one had started vibrating and rattling, shortly after then so did the second quiet pump.
      I read up about it and saw someone mention something in another forum about how they discovered a loose screw inside the pump, i intended to take mine apart and look for said "loose screw" but didn't get around to it yet and have just put up with the noise. anyway i have since discovered 2 of the main screws on the bottom that hold the unit together had fallen out completely on one of them, and 1 screw has also fallen out on the other unit. im quite disappointed - i haven't gotten around to trying to fix the units yet and i'm optimistic that i can figure out how to "shut them up" but i'm still not happy that they have failed to meet expectations 1-2 months after purchase !
      BY COMPARISON -  my older schego m2k3 and WS series pump are incredible - soooo so quiet still, @ineke (and others) had recommended the schego brand in a thread here and i'm glad i followed their advice initially before i took my chance on the fluval pumps - i will stick with schego in future - well worth the extra cost for the low-noise and the quality!
      love n peace
      will

      What creature are you talking about here? I can't get an idea from the photo? Simon
    • jayc
      Absolutely. Just continue with regular weekly water changes. No need to alter the routine, or as Simon said, add additional water changes to the routine. Unfortunately, as long as you are using tap water, the lowest pH it will get is what you have from the tap. 7.4/7.6 as you mentioned above. If it gets down to 7.4, that should make a difference to the shrimp. Especially if GH is around 4.

    • sdlTBfanUK
      As you say, the figures are coming down but that means the TDS and GH are getting too low really for cherry shrimp so I wouldn't keep doing extra water changes over your normal routine until you have a definitive plan, stick to your weekly usual for now. Make sure new water is added sowly as well! You could continue with the tap water but would need to get some GH+ to bring the new water TDS and GH up, but thats a bit impractical if you plan to transfer to RO water soon anyway as that requires a different remineraliser. With the RO water you will need to get GH/KH+ before you can use the RO water! The RO water remineralised is the safest way to get and keep the ideal water parameters as tap water can change from different areas and at different times of the year. As JayC mentioned, you could collect rainwater in the meantime but that would still require GH/KH+ I expect otherwise the TDS and GH (and KH) will drop even lower? You will be able to check the TDS pen with the RO water as it should be 000 (or very very close) TDS. Simon
