Advice for covering up equipment in my aquarium
Hey i was wondering if there was any way i could cover up my filter and heater inside my tank to make it more attractive looking. I have a small filter and a smallish heater. Could I put some sort of PVC piping over the heater and maybe like a driftwood or something over the filter? Would any of this affect their performance?
It may effect it. The heat may not spread as powerfully if it is concealed and same with the filter. If the intake/outflow tubes are covered, then you will not get proper oxygenation of the water in the tank and i just think it may alter the effectiveness of the filter all-together.

Place plants in front of the heater and filter to help disguise them. What type of filter are you using?

yeah i think plants would be the best bet, i got a nice submersible heater stick and an elite mini filter.

if you have the space, switching to a sump will be good for hiding in-tank equipment.
