Sicce 0.5 pulling too much water


Recommended Posts


Recently upgraded a no-name return pump on my Waterbox cube 15g to a Sicce 0.5.

It's rated at 700L/hr up from 500 on my original.


At max flow it leaves the middle chamber about 2/3s full and results in a constant trickling noise.

I've tried adjusting the flow via the rotating inlet but it makes no difference unless it's fully closed (which is a step down from where i started in terms of flow).


Any one else experienced this?

Seems like it's either max or min flow and nothing in-between.

I know it's not much help right now but pumps almost always slow down once gunked up a little. Or two little fishies makes tiny soft tubing ball valves you could use.
