Cycling my fish less IBC system (175 gal) for 5 day now and added 1/8 cup of pure ammonia at the beginning of the cycle.  Got an 8.0 reading to start off with and have not added any ammonia, 5 day now and still unable to bring my ammonia backdown down from 8.0  Emptied 25% (40 gal) of the water and still got an 8.0 ammonia reading.   Should I emptied a higher percentage or dump the the tank completely?  Any thoughts

Is that a spring or springless 1 way check valve?  I took the spring out of mine, but Glenn recommended to buy the one without the spring.  I just cut the spring out of mine.  What size pump are you using.  I have the Hakko 40lpm pump and get 209 gallons per hour.  I got more flow when I put the 45 degree fitting out to the right of the collector instead of the 90 degree.  The small 1 inch pipe inside the collector is also important as to how high it is etc.

I use the Hakko 40 and 60 watt pumps, doing 40 lpm and 60 lpm.

Quiet, been running them out in the weather and indoors. Seem to be unbreakable.

$200 to $250
