Hi. I am fairly new to canister filters. I have had a measly ZooMed 30gal canister, but I upgraded my tank and have thus upgraded my filter. I now have a 55 gal
My problem is this:
I have the whole body filled with water and media is in its place. The output tube stays full of water, but even priming cannot keep the input tube full, because it pushes it out of the output. When the filter is turned on it will push out whatever water is in the input tube, but then it won't suck anything into it.
I can't even feel any suction when I put my fingers up to it. We have checked the impeller and below the cover the orange thing(?) seems to be spinning (the piece above it does not is it supposed to?). The seals on all the hoses are fairly far up and tight. We have primed it and primed it and nothing seems to be working.
