In the bright side it is supposed to help lower kh, which in Arizona where I am the gh and kh are always high. My kh is off the charts.
Is this air pump too strong? Will it disrurb anything I currently have? How much benefit is it doing for the sponge, filter?
Lastly it has 2 outputs, what is that for? How do I use that? Right now I just connected both with tubing and a T piece, is that fine? Sent from Petguide.com Free App
It's very rare for a tank to have "too much oxygen."
I'd say you're okay, as long as the air pump does say it's made for your size tank.
You should research Co2 and o2 as far as plants go, and I know that ADF need water currents to help them swim to the top in order to breathe.
Not sure what you mean on the outputs. Picture?
