I have been using the "Automatic Aquarium Water Changer" for years. We
have good water and plants do very well -- good buffering qualities plus
CO2 added continually about one bubble every 5 seconds. I do not run it
all the time, but I do it several times a week for a few hours each time.
It changes 5 gallons per hour (in a 70 gallon aquarium). FWIW, the
plants are fabulous!
I add "Flora-Boost" (iron and manganese)weekly as directed on bottle with
I got the same results running it 8 hours per day, but I just don't do
this now! Just as written above.
I love the gadget as I can enjoy my aquarium while the water is
automatically being changed.
