Air Bars Not Bubbling
I just replaced my volcano and decayed bubble wand with two bubble bars from a different brand, and now, they aren't bubbling. I soaked each for just over an hour. I connected the longer one first, and put it in, it was bubbling a bit, then I connected the other one, that one didn't bubble very much when I put it in. I switched the tubes' ports and the longer one bubbled a little bit, and the short one began to bubble more, and tiny bubbles. The tank is 55g with a 60g air pump, 2 ports. I can't control how much air is going through which, cause there's nothing to do that. One is significantly stronger though. I'd take a video, but then I can't get on my Youtube :|
I'd hate to get new ones, since they're brand new, and my dad doesn't wanna go shopping again so soon, just for new stones.
Pump - Tetra 60g w/2 ports
Tank - 55g
Stones - Petco brand, 12" and 4"
Please reply asap, as I'm trying to get it fixed before I go to my friend's
An hour later, it's still not bubbling. I know it's not the pump, because the old volcano bubbled nicely for a few months. I hear moving the pump above the tank helps, but I have nowhere besides the desk it's on, there isn't a shelf above it.
;A; I also did poke some holes in it but that has no effect until the stone is near the surface
