Q. I need a replacement filter for this 6 gal. Eclipse Aquarium. I can't find an Eclipse one at Wal-Mart. What else will do and fit?
- If you don't mind shopping the internet, then try Ken's fish. It's got some cheap filter media made for all kinds of filters, Eclipse models included. These are rather inexpensive so you can order in bulk to save money. Look for the 'Ken' brand.by kritterkeeprk7/19/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- MarineLand Rite Size cartridges (size K) can be ordered here: http://www.amazon.com/Marineland-Rite-Size-Cartridge-3-Pack/dp/B0002566VU I haven't been able to find any locally. If you're handy with a penknife you can slit one end and refill it with aquarium charcoal easily enough. Make sure you rinse it in NON-chlorinated water, though (chlorine kills the beneficial bacteria...)by BettasRule2/19/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- The water that comes back into the tank from the filter disturbs the top of the water, allowing carbon dioxide to leave the water and oxygen to enter. If you don't feel that this is enough, you can also purchase a bubbler that sends bubbles to the surface, where they also disturb the top of the water. Bubbles look great and help oxygenate!by Ishkatwol8/6/2009Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- If you're talking about an air pump and bubbler, no. However, in a tank this size (small), you won't need one if you: 1) use live plants, or 2) don't overstock The output of the filter agitates the surface of the water enough to provide plenty of oxygen exchange.by BettasRule8/15/2009Was this answer helpful?
