I do have a powerhead up high and the water has quite a bit of agitation...but apparenty not enough so I need to do something about it.
As for additives, I've been using prime to detoxify the tap water before I add it. So that might be a problem. I NEED AN RO
UNIT!!!! dang it.
Well I don't quite understand what he means about cut out a bioball and fit it around the impeller...but then again, I havent taken the maxijet 1200 apart to see.
I think that might be a good idea though to make the seaclone into an airstone skimmer. I've got tons of pumps and airstones.
The surface skimmer would be the overflow, and the seaclone is stationed down inside my sump right now with the PH connected directly to the skimmer...none of that feeding tube stuff. I got rid of that.
I think I might try drilling a hole for an airstone.
WOW guys...I modded the seaclone a nd set it up with an airstone and a very powerful dual output airpump...and oh my lord...lol...It works like a dream...I can't believe the change in output...It's crazy...wow...awesome...not even kidding...Anybody with a seaclone needs to mod it for an airstone and get rid of the air injection lol...it makes a huge difference.
Not that I think about it. I moved the skimmer down to the sump and thats when it stopped working. Then like a day or so after I started getting the Diatom bloom...I think that might be my problem. I hope I see a reduction in diatoms soon.
Thanks for the help bro. I appreciate it a lot.
