Water Diffuser For Filling Tank


Recommended Posts

Python hooks are neat, but I found I just don't spend the time to remove the syphon and replace it with the hook. When starting a new aquarium and filling for the first time, I generally use a rock/stone to diffuse the water so the substrate is minimally effected. I don't worry about the substrate after that point.

MD has said his is an inlet strainer from a canister filter that he adapted. Dean's is from some unknown person who makes them with a 3-D printer ( I think I saw some conversation about it on here but can't find it).

Here's mine, not commercially available but pretty cheap and easy to make.

Aquaclear 110 intake tubes fit on the python hook and work well for defusing water. You can also put a sponge on it if you really want it to slow the flow and defuse more. 

Cool! Thanks I have an extra Aquaclear 70 tube, I’ll see if it works.
