this may sound n00b, but the venturi on my seio isn't working. i have it mounted with the venturi knob turned out and attached to the airline thats out of water, but for some reason, i don't get any bubbles. and water backs into the airline from the seio. right now, i've resorted to attach the airline to a pump. any idea? is there a max depth on the seio?

are you running a venturi straight into your tank? as long as you have surface agitation you dont need it for gas exchange.

it's not for gas exchange; it's for a DIY skimmer. :D i'll post pictures if it works. anyone?

4" PVC pipe, hole drilled in the side just big enough to fit the seio. pretty simple... but i just need the get the venturi going, otherwise i might as well be running an airstone.

 

i was thinking of pushing the seio all the way in and using it as a recirculating pump instead. flow would come via another hole drilled into the pipe, fed via off shoot from over flow. opinions?
