Re: [APD] snails clogging up filter outtake
One way to address the problem is to ditch the output tube
with the little holes and let the water flow straight out
of the J-tube.
Are you using a polyester floss pad at the top of the
eheim. If you can impede all but the smallest making it
into the pump, they might flow right on out of the spraybar
holes. I'm not sure that this will work because,
unfortunately, the 2213 doesn't have much waterflow under
any circumstances, only about 50-100 gph, depending on
biofilm buildup in the tubes and how loaded the media is.
