before you learn to keep goldfish, why dont you learn to write english so that everyone can read? dont shorten everything such as : n, jst, dis, gv, dat, knw, d, pro etc. make people read also lazy.

anyway i read your post in the other thread, the people of this forum DID say that your filteration is TOO GOOD for the fish. and due to the current that the filteration creates, your goldfish will die of exhaustion. therefore i think this forum give you 2 possible solution.
1. by using existing filteration method, control your current!
2. buy sponge filter and keep your current filters in the cupboard.

Read from other thread that filtration / current too strong.I will input my 2 cents here since you started this thread.
As a general guide try not to exceed 4 time per hour of filtration to avoid strong current.For eg, if your tank has 50L of water the pump capacity should not exceed 200L/hr.
All pumps carry this information so do some maths before buying.Bear in mind that air pumps also creates currents which are also specified in L/hr.

In your first post, you wrote that you using 2 ft tank. Advices were given and should be clear enough.

After going around the bushes, your tank suddenly changed to 4x2x2 .... ok .... u do the clarification.

AND please use proper english or anything close to english that the people can understand.

I think in his first post he already mention his english is not good. Somehow, that post is not there. I believe it is not his intention to write this way.

im sorry to cause inconvinient ppl who see my post. maybe because my of english was damme poor. i already bought the filter sponge from darwin( i ask my friend to buy for me since he go darwin today). but havent use yet. will try tomorrow. about the capacity of my air pump. its seen nobobdy know about this brand... i think have to put it aside. i will try to look for other air pump which can adjust a current output and suitable for my tank size. before i join this RG ( it was recomended from my friend who also fish a lover). i totaly not even have a single knowledge abt keeping the goldfish n good water condition. i dun even know wat is KH or PH and bla bla....that why im here hope can learn somethin from all the experienced bro and sis here. i need time to digest wat i have seen through the forum here( green water, filtration and tank set up). thanks all the bro here..

Lester, the mentioned air pump is from QianHu's Super brand. High End high power series, adjustable power, 4 outlets. Sufficient for your present setup. Enough for 2 4ft tank.
