Hey guys! I just hooked up my new Aquaclear 70 and... I think it's leaking.
When the flow is set to anything but the lowest setting, water flows from alongside the U-tube (intake) - as well as from the nice pretty spillway by the filter media.
Um... is this normal? It's my first tank and my first filter, and it just doesn't seem... right. :/
Okay, for any newbie who sees this - first thing to check is that your bag o' ceramic biomedia isn't just positioned to divert water back towards the U-Tube... ie, smoosh it around a bit, see if the problem goes away.
