    Good video Joey. Not to take a way from the video content, but it was cool
    to see your Aro again. Love that fish.

    Very useful and Perfectly described… Only a best person can describe in
    such a beautiful way. Impressed….

    Thanks to Joey’s tutorials i switched to k1 a year ago. Noise is definitely
    a factor. My 110 liter air pump is noisy and i am this close to moving it
    outside the house. Cycling is a pain but once you get it going, it goes. I
    have a 40 part build series on my channel. My only regret with k1 is that i
    did not switch to it sooner. Filter floss is about the only thing i have to
    worry about these days.

    I think you could turn the air down quite a bit on your fluidized filters.
    Looks a little too much to me, it should be a gentle turn over not a
    geyser. Also your media should be yellowing, yours looks brilliant white
    another indicator of too much air.

    Nice one

    Hey Joey, would you mind explaining why you need an air pump over a water
    pump for filtration? Seems like a water pump would have more flow for less

    Sorry I wasn’t paying attention. Your BBXB keeps distracting me. He sure
    loves being on camera! (or food) lol.

    Was hoping you would do an expanded video on this Joey! Awesome!

    What do you think about using a moving sand bed filter In sump form? I’m
    thinking about building one as a filtration for a 40 gallon tank. More for
    the fun of designing and building than anything.

    As I live in the desert I would capitalize on the humidity and also have
    frogs and salamanders.

    It looked like you were using two different types of silicone when you were
    installing the baffles in the sump? Was that just because the one chamber
    was too small to fit the caulk gun in there or is there some other reason?

  20. Johnny Ventura12 April, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    Hey Joey, great job again. You mentioned a dehumidifier, would you mine
    sharing the brand and size of what your using??? I also have some big
    humidity issues at my place, so looking to get one if those.

    Another awesome series, different types of sumps with their pros and cons.
    You’ve answer a lot question I had on moving bed filters. Thinking of
    adding one to my ap system ( in the Aquaponic world bio-filter). Fired
