Ok soooo, i was thinking and i thought of possibly a good idea. Since my discus dont like a whole lot of water movement maybe you could use my idea to keep down water movement but keep the mulm and fish wastes out from the bottom of the tank.
This idea is inexpensive and i want to know if it will work or not.
ps-if anyone has any ways of perfecting this idea your help would be greatly appreciated
So Here's My Idea
1. You get a pvc pipe that will fit onto a powerhead snugly and some elbow connecters and some T conncecters and the things that fit on to the end of a pvc pipe to water cant come out the end(forgot its name)
2.You drill(using a pretty small bit)holes about 1 inch apart from eachother and put them in the bottom of your tank using elbow connectors and etc to make sure there isnt any dead spots. And then you put those things on the end so water cant escape out the end. Then you cover it up with about 1 inch 1/2 of gravel
!Note!-You can use more than one powerhead to make the water pressure in the tubes higher)
3.You hook the powerhead(s) and put a sponge on the intake to use a a sponge filter and it shoots water through the holes and aerates the gravel and keeps mulm from building up.
Soooo do you think it will work?
Because if it does than people can use the idea for their discus or any other fish and i will use it for my tank.
