My powerhead is being pathetic and not spurting a continuous flow of bubbles, its like coughing and spurting. This is the second hand powerhead but it seems to be working fine otherwise. I think I'll try taking it apart and cleaning but if anyone has tips I'd be glad to hear.

Cleaning is maybe what it needs
Otherwise, maybe the air pump isn't powerful enough? It is rated for atleast 55 gallons right?

You have to connect an airline to the venturi cuff or something? Idk it probably does tho!

I got a female pearl. They only had one girl and two gorgeous boys, but I don't want to have multiple males. I took the girl, and my little guy has a major crush. Its pretty obvious he needs more girls, lol.

If had an airline connected to it and it didn't do anything. So maybe it was too long or something.
