I at least figures out why air was coming out. My air stone was too close to intake tube. Moved it and no bubbles. Gonna run the fluval 206 and cascade 1000 canisters together I think. Over filtering and making more tank space by removing fluval u4 in tank filter. Ill use that if I set up 10 gal for any fry I get

It visually looks like its moving water when I look at the tank. Not sure this wil be adequate to filter 36 gallon along with the fluval u4 underwater rate for a 65 gallon that moves way more water if U ask me(says 265 gph). Of course I threw away the box. I filled trays w biostars and bio max from other filter in bottom s Tray then more bio max in middle them in top the included fine pad and then pouch of purigen. Any helpful advice as to what I'm doing wrong or am I just being paranoid?
with my 406 I had to throddel it down bc the current was to strong, and it says in the instructions not to place intake over Bubbles but then who reads instructions
