How much air is too much?


Recommended Posts

Hi all


Started to notice my bubble count dropping off on my dwc and some very light slime forming so I've decided its time for a new air pump and my question is how much air is too much? Current pump is double outlet both @ 2.5l/min. Looking at getting one of the electoemagnetic air pumps @ 20l/min. Would this be too much air for 2 10lt dwc res tanks if I split it between the 2?

For sure, can't have too much air :) . Unless you have a high end $400 unit I recommend running two simultaneously with a valve, last thing you want is your only one and only unit to fail because once the slime takes hold its hard to get rid of. I've had a resun fail on me before and this happened
