Sorry to hear you loss. Don't worry everybody goes through some mishaps in this hobby, that's why we are here to learn from each other.

On second thought I was thinking about this aerator condition. What if we design our aquarium/tanks such that we don't need aerator for oxygen. What I mean is built something like a mini trickle tower.

I've read in a koi.com.my forum that trickle tower is very effective in reducing the nitrate level (I forgot whether it's nitrate or nitrite), and on top of that they design it using gravity feed and no pump, which I think will reduce the cost of electricity as well.

A lot of farms also applies this kind of system to expose the water to air to increase the oxygen level in the water instead of using aeration. I saw a couple of my friend also applies the same concept, because of the failure of the aeration system and also to reduce the electricity cost good_very.gif

super low stocking levels in green water requires no aeration as well.. provided the green water doesn't get too thick

May I know how does the water travel upwards thus allowing it to fall again through the trickle tower if there's no pump involve? Mind boggling and I would like to try it. Do you have the link? Thanks.

hohoho, that's one of my fav topic shiok.gif

www.koi.com.my

there's a link on the main page abt reducing nitrate. but no, there is still a pump required somewhere in the filtration system laugh.gif

Hi,

Yeah sorry about that, I thought I read it there is no pump, but seems like you still require a pump good_very.gif

Thanks Nanik.

The subject of filtration bores me. If I have my way, I would like to have a tap that drips water constantly and old water overflows out non-stop 7x24. Surely that's the best "filtration" out there. Too bad I think the water bill will be high and the utility board will come after me.

not forgetting the problem of chloramine meaning u need to invest in expensive carbon filtration to remove chlorine
