Tank is Juwel Rekord 600 -community fish-, nothing special except to me cause they are pretty, I have had it about 10 years
Hey Jackie and welcome to the family!
If you have had the tank for 10 years, and your still using the original filter it came with, I'm guessing it is just getting old. If your worried about it I say just replace it with a more, up-to-date, filter. I had my Whisper HOB
Power Filter for around 3 to 4 years, it still worked but it was very loud. I just got a new filter and you can barely here it. I think filters just get warn out after a while, just like anything else would. And a ten year old filter, that's pretty old.
Also, if you want to try to get your questions asked faster, try posting your question in it's own thread, under the appropriate category.
