I got a 450 litre aquarium and installed a new ehem pro 3 2075. The outlet pipe goes to an aquamedic reaktor 1000 and then to the aquarium. The reaktor is installed near the filter. The only issue that i am encountering is that the filter output (situated under water so I do not let oxygen comes in because of CO2) is low in my opinion. I am a bit concerned because of lack of filtering and water circulation?
What can go wrong? Why the output is slow?
Maybe i need to install a new pump so that I have a better water cirulation?
Blue Coarse Filter
EHEIM substrat pro
The only one that is full to the top is the Eheim Mechpro, the other are not full to the top. Practicly i removed 1 tray eheim mechpro from the filter to add the biohome else i left it as the filter came so i do not think that i stacked it with too much filter.
What do you think?
Right now i have the filter and the reactor on the same level in the cabinet and then to the aquarium.
The pipe that is connected to the reactor is short but the pipe that is connected from the reactor to the outlet is 1.8Meters long. Could it be this the problem?
If yes should i make the bends more sharp?
