    Well I'm not sure if it was less or not, I just tested a week later to see where I was. I put some bioballs in another tank so I always have bacteria available, plus my sister has an Aquaclear 50 so I can steal some bacteria too lol.

    So my tap comes out at like 8 pH and my 5.5 is at 6.2 with the Fluval stratum and CO2 running 24/7 and an airstone at night

    Awesome! I cycled my 90 gallon in a day by cloning and using plants.

    No it is crude and all that which is also reducing the flow.

    I cycled a 5.5 gallon tank in a week or less with a jump start :)

    Yeah i heard of several ways, but all of them you need a wire to pull the cleaning device in and out. So I just need to find out how I could rig a cleaner up. The pipes are so dirty lol

    Very nice.
    "Test tube cleaner" or anything similar. You will need to think of a way to extend it though. Buy a used canister?

    16-24 gallons Freshwater... Too strong lol, I found the Hydro Pico Ecomag and that one has 180 adjustable. So I am gonna get that, as I can just turn the flow down.

    Do you know a good way on how to clean out filter tubes for a canister?

    Did someone else answer your question? xDD SORRY. Yea, I think it'll be too strong. What's it rated for?

    Just a thought, do you think this powerhead is too powerful for a 15 gallon long tank? Hydor-Koralia-Nano 240 GPH? couldnt link it. I'm having dead spots and its causing algae and it looks like it belongs there.

    I git them $4 each, but if you calculate shipping in from aquabid, then it would be the same price or more and there's no gurantee they would make it. So I just got them.
