thanks again

I left the tank overnight with the water up to just below the max line, it looked great and very quiet but this morning all my fish were up at the surface gulping so I felt I had to remove a bit of the water volume again so back to the start lol
I was in my pet shop today and priced up a new airstoney outside pump thing so will be saving my pennies to get one so I can get my bubbles back
also have cleaned and had a good look at the powerhead, I cant see anything wrong but its old so will be looking to renew that as well, my fish deserve it

been thinking again and the pump does fail a bit when its covered with water but also wondered if adding outlet pipe to make it back near the surface when its filled to where it should be would get my bubbles back, extending the lengeth or the outlet so it reaches the new water level? any thoughts welcome
Juwel Diversion Nozzle Set for all Juwel Filter - Garden Site - your online Garden Centre

could add this onto existing pipe

cut a piece of the hosing from old gravel filter/hoover and pushed it into pump adding one of the black parts to the join, it slightly turned the hosing upward so whoohoo I added more water and it has worked as I wanted, should have thought of this ages ago but will see how the fish are in the morning, if they are not gasping or floating on top I will pat myself on the back
