  1. Have a look on YouTube there's to types a internal filter or in line type
  2. From around 60 to 40 with a big waterchange. But I have noticed clearer water and softies are looking really good. I will do some more big waterchanges to get nitrate's down then hopefully this will help keep them down also setup my reactor with biopellets again this week
  3. Hi yeh people are very sceptical about because it's claimed they get rid of nitrate's. But what they are actually meant to do is break ammonia down to ammonium before it has a chance to turned to Nitrite. So which means no more Nitrite or nitrate's. But it won't break down nitrate's all ready in the tank so in theory the nitrate's should come down with water changes. Which is how I,m finding it though I now have red cyno . I only installed it 2 weeks ago so will have to see how it goes
  4. Hi I just added a stream 1 it made my water very clear and my skimmer is pulling out a lot more dark crap on a wet skim . Just wondering if anyone else has used one ????
