A few time ago it was posted in the channel fishinnpost, another video “PetSmart Betta Fish Quality? Types, Colors, & Abuse”.
As informed in the youtube page by fishinnpost: “http://amzn.to/2B9n62k – I find the biggest issue people have with betta fish from PetSmart is heaters. Or just bettas in general (from anywhere). This is the best heater for bettas. Here is a link:

I once found multiple khuli loaches in a tank I was moving and forgot they were there…. dont remeber buying them so they must have been quite a few years old.
Did a reshape a couple months back and found this guy. No idea what he is or where he came from. Tanks been running for years. What pumps and how many does everyone use for there 40 gallons or 75 gallons? I’ve been letting this soak for about 2 weeks or more in a 5 gal bucket. It’s still turning the water a light brown. Will it ever stop doing that? And can I put it in with my acara and severums?
I bought a pair of them on a custom stand for less than that. You can get at Petco or PetSmart during sales for $1 per gallon. You can get at garage sales all the time for about that price. Or on Facebook sale pages. Or letgo. Or Craigslist. Sometimes for free. Your local fish store might even order one for you that size at cost. We have 2 local stores that will do that, just gotta ask.
Hi, Wondering if any one here can help. I’m making a sand fall and run into a problem.
I’m using a pump to power this, I tried the airstone method and it doesn’t suit my design so trying this route instead. As per the pic below i can get it to suck sand in and blow out if I use a small vertical pipe(outlet b). Soon as I try to use the correct length (outlet a) I get blow back through the inlet hole so it doesn’t suck in, it blows the sand away (like a volcano). I have tried getting a more powerful pump (1500l/ph) and I get he same results as a 600ph/l pump. Any pointers?
You’re getting a blow back through your Inlet hole because the distance from your pump to that connecting piece is too short. If you make the distance a little bit longer between the two you should get the right amount of force. It’s probably too much pressure and it’s forcing the sand back out the inlet hole.
Honestly, I don’t think it’s going to work. As soon as you have an opening in a pipe, the pressure is pretty much gonna do what it can to out of there. Systems work going from high pressure to low pressure and want to do it the easiest way. Also, there is gonna be head pressure from the size of the up piece which is gonna cause back pressure in the pipe which is gonna force more water out through your sand inlet. This design works with the air stone due to displacement, for this to work you would have to have the sand inlet on the water pump inlet but I don’t think the pumps are gonna handle pulling sand though them for any length of time.
People do have this working(alot more have this issue, so trying to figure out what is causing it) and the strange thing is that water is coming out of the top which makes this confusing as if no water was coming out then i would agree that the pressure from the up piece is forcing it back down and out the inlet.
for anyone interested here is a detailed video, just mine for some reason doesn’t function as his, i’m gonna try and re cut a t piece now and see if that makes a difference. So, i’ve never tried this. But i’m kinda thinking that the sand should get pushed by the air. So if the top outlet was tipped up a bit the lighter air would go up and the heavier sand would fall?
PetSmart betta Fish. I currently have a sandfall setup the exact same way. I do have the problem you mentioned occasionally. It’s usually due to my pump pre-filter being clogged so reduced water pressure or the sand clogged up in the pipe between the sand inlet and sandfall outlet. I just stick my finger in the hole to block it and the water pressure clears everything up.
How about trying to install a one-way check valve, like a flapper valve at point B? But if you want the sand to exit at point A, why is point B needed as on opening? Sorry b was a test outlet. It would work with smaller up pipe but soon as I switched it out with a longer one it would blow back through the inlet (although water would come out of outlet a it would just create a volcano effect with sand on the inlet.)”
