if u wanna be v safe, quarantine for 2 weeks
Experts' advice is one month's quarantine, To avoid transferring disease to your display tank, use separate equipment for your quarantine tank too

Also, some advice to give broad spectrum medication like Tetra General Tonic Plus to new fishstock as part of quarantine. But I haven't try it myself

Anyone got advice on what CO2 regulator to get? I see those GLA or CO2art reg very big....

Any comments on the ADA "CO2 System 74-YA/Ver.2" or "CO2 Attache Regulator"? They dont a gauge tho, is that a very big draw back?

Sometimes yes .
Or sponge stuck with rubbish or what not need clean
Impeller sometimes dirty or stuck

Else is the ancient way , on pump
Suck from the output


Actually for a start just take the pump put into a pail of water try first if it is working at all

The water level must reach the base of the pump motor for optimum operation.
In the picture, it is the black box casing where the suction tube is connected.

You can use the long suction tube as a gauge, water level reach full length, 100%, but most of the time will top up water slight above the pump motor base as evaporation takes place which reduce the amount of water

Try to fill water to the full length of the long suction tube to see if it works

oic. with that limited space, don't think it can hold a lot of media.
