I'm curious Apocalypse_Gold why forget the powerheads? I'm kinda leaning in that direction, my air pumps are kinda of old and repairing them may be a nightmare.
I am running a 4 output whisper air pump, but i have had to t them together to make any real contribution to the aeration on the UGF. i have another double air pump powering the two inner tubes and they are very weakly making a contribution. What size tanks are you using a ugf with? and what brand/model air pump or brand/model powerheads are you using?
If i do decide to go powerheads, i was thinking about the maxijet-400, only $14 each at aquarium guys. only they dont reverse flow i believe.
I have to agree with Apocalypse_Gold, I like UGF and i already have one for my 90 gal so when i reset that up again its going in. I used them in the past and really believe they greatly add to the nitrifying bacteria system working properly. I have had cichlids in several tanks and they were very messy with dead fish debris, food and poop. But I have always used them in conjunction with a HOB filter.
