I'm expecting to recieve a fluval 304 today and wanted to hear any and all opinions about the filter.
First: I got it for $55 shipped on craigslist, he said it comes with everythign but the manual and is a year old. Good price?
The man I am buying it from changed the output head to a spraybar, so I may spend $2-3 to get the original output nozzle back on it.
I planned on hooking up my CO2
reactor into the downflow, but it had occurred to me:
Can't I just make a hole and silicone the checkvalve right into the Fluval's downflow, and use the filter itself as the reactor? Is the PVC
reactor even necessary? Or even better: run the CO2
tubing into the tank, and just have the bubbles release right into the intake filter. THis way they'll have the entire length of the hose to fight the current and dissolve mostley(completely?) before they even get to the cannister??
Generally, please tell me about this filter, its pros/cons, what to look out for or beware of, and how I should inject my CO2
into it, or hook my reactor into it.
