Frequently Asked Questions
How this works. Don't you need to treat the water before you start putting it back in?
Try to match the tempurature of your tank with your faucet/tap water by a couple of degrees +/-.
As far as treating the water, do so after the refill, and follow the instructions as you would when you initially set the tank up.
For example, if you have a 100 gal tank and you're doing a weekly 25% water change, add enough dechlorinator for 100 gallons, not just the 25 gallons of fresh water you're putting in.
How do you get all the water out of the tubes after a water change?
The most important and last thing you should do before putting it away is to flush the tube out with clean water. If you have mildew growing in it, that means there was food for the bacteria/mold to grow on. To kill the mildew, draw a hot bucket up with water and some bleach. Suck the bleach/water combo up until there is nothing left in the bucket (i'd recommend a 5 gallon bucket). Once that is finished, turn the faucet contraption so it's pushing water into the tube and flush the hose out agian with water for a minute or two. Once that is finished disconnect the hose and let it hang somewhere to drip dry.
Is Python right product for a 9 gallon BiOrb Flow tank?
It will do it yes but it's a bit big for a 9 gal. With the python I fear it's a bit big and depending on your water pressure I personally find the manual ones have more suction so clean the gravel better. And with the other one being bigger you may find all the water you want out is gone before u have finished vacuuming as the water will go out quick. The python is brilliant for a bigger tank so u don't have to deal with lots of water carrying but with a 9 g that's no problem in my opinion.
