    Does the amount of liquid affect Drop Checker results?

    Hi all, if you filled the drop checker ball full, will it take longer for the solution to change colour? I just saw gareths tank which had a tiny amount of solution in the ball part and it got me thinking. Thanks.

    Does it matter if i have an 'undersized' ceramic diffuser

    I have a 180l/ 40g and was looking at the rhinox 5000 but i was wondering if i could have a smaller version like the 2000 to save on money (cheapskate) :wink: Is there a problem with that? It will be positioned under my outake of my filter so the bubbles will be getting blown around.
