Don't see that being a problem, I have my wand spraying against the glass so it doesn't make noise. Works great. In my opinion it is pointless to spend more when this option exists.

My question is; what chemical filtration is run in anyone's tank if AC nor ammonia remover is used? Does anyone just run sponges and rings then?

running none.....if all your parameters line up there should be no problem with amonia .....hense dont over feed ...be on top of your water changes and so forth....from the info i have been getting people only use chemical when you want to rid a tank of chemicals example like a hospital or qt tank.....should be fine without it i think ill let you know after a couple of week of mine running.

That's kind of what I'm gathering too. I feel old school and figured AC was always used if for nothing more than odor. Ur thread made me think about my filter, thanx. I guess I'll run sponge and rings/bio balls until something starts to get out of tune.
