Hello & already have a question (powerhead)
I am from Hillsborough County, FL where they raise most of the tropical fish here in the USA & have had aquarium fish since I was little. Not an expert by any means but I used to hang out at Segrest Farms (had a friend who lived on site there) so have had decent exposure I guess to tropical fish. Now, here's my question; I just got a tank setup & it came with a used sacem 800 powerhead which makes a rattling noise; could this be the impeller or what? I've never had a powerhead before so don't know anything about them. I don't know where to put this question on the forums so if you could redirect me I'd appeciate it. Oh, I have 3 aquariums and one rubbermaid tub. 2 are ten gallons, and this new one is a 20 gallon high that's also 10x20 but 2x as high. One has 2 african clawed frogs and a snail and the other one has some baby african cichlids. The tub has a musk turtle & the 20 gallon high doesn't have anything in it. It was supposed to be for the turtle but I don't know since it's so high. Best regards all!
