That's exactly what I am doing too... It's just that making a 180 cm tank called "without compromises" for it, well, thats an expensive venture. My plans: bottom drilled opti-white 180x60x60 tank with 3x Eheim 2080, ADA light, AS Amazonia, auto fert dosing, CO2, etc. About EUR 3600 if I do everything as I planned.

Simple: nighttime aeration. On timer, through the external filter hosing. The quiet and professional solution is not easy though.SteveUK said:What are you trying to do with the air pumps/equipment?
Thanks John (Liza is my daugter... - we've been talking about this here, that there are some - like me - who only look at the pictures.john starkey said:wow liza i love it,every time i see all these great nanos on here i cant make up my mind what to in mine
Thanks for the idea Mate, I will try it!Maurits said:(...)take a box, fill this completely with 1 or 2 mm gravel and bury your air pump in the gravel.
I have something similar. Not even a bigger 500 lph airpump is strong enough to push the air through it.JamesM said:Boyu Diffuser?
That's the exact garbage material that I broke two times when messing with the hoses. Plus for some reason the regular 16/22 hose just keeps leaking on both ends. I had to glue the hose to it and fasten it with plastic "whats-the-english-expression-for-it". Here's what I did:JamesM said:Well the simplest method would be to use something like this: http://www.petstore.com/Aqua_Medic_Redu ... AC-vi.html
Yeppp, surprising indeed. But if we count that cheaper but good quality plastic in-line CO2 diffusers only appeared about a year ago to offer alternative to the easily broken Cal Aqua glass ones - then we must really hit the alarms to lobby for in-line airing solutions!JamesM said:I'm surprised there aren't any inline air diffusers out there actually
Never thought of that one, money is never issue with me so I'll check to see if I can find good and silent ones. Would be simple and convenient to put a Tee on the CO2 hose and introduce air into the CO2 diffuser with a check-valve at night. Thanks for the tip. :idea:JamesM said:Something like a mini compressor for tattooing or airbrushing could also work for the pump, but the silent ones cost a fortune afaik.
