2023 – BIG FISH DEAL

WE NEED YOUR HELP ** Our goal is to start planning this summer for a BFD in early 2023. We do need volunteers to help to plan, to do vendor outreach and then some. If you want to help us with being part of this committee, please reach out. We can’t do it alone, and without extra support, planning for a BDF will take us allot longer.

Fluval 306 Canister Issues

Hi! I have a fluval 306 that just isn't working and I don't know a lot about them so I'm not sure how to explain the problem.

It seems like the pump itself is clogged or failing, even when I use the manual pumping to fill it, it's kind of hit or miss on if it actually does anything or not.

I replaced the impeller and it's cover, and that helped for about a week, then it stopped again. Is there something else I should clean or check?

I don't know how much I can take it apart, and I have a lot of tools and creativity so I'm hesitant to just start dismantling it and then disassemble something that can't be put back together.

is it like the smaller filters where snails can get in and jam up the intake, even though I have a pretty fine pre-filter sponge, and I need to uncover the pump motor to clear away shell debris?

Is there some other problem I don't know to look for that I can check?


Full disclosure: I have NO idea how old this filter is, I got it used earlier this year and it's been working fine until now.

Looking for Corydorus habrosus

If anyone has these for sale or rehoming, please let me know. I'm in Columbia, MD and would rather pick-up within 25 miles than have the fish shipped. Thanks!
