Yet another Perlite/PMP question
    #2019225 - 10/17/03 11:50 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Picked up an airstone, pump, and tubing. Going to put it together tomorrow, but I have a question. The general ration of water and perlite is 3 inches perlite, 2 inches water. Wouldnt the perlite float on top of the water? If it does, how do the cakes stay on it stabily? stabily..is that even a word?

Oh, one of my airstones bubbles only at like 2 places, the other bubbles at 6 places. Anyway to remedy this?

I'm gonna suggest lava rock instead of perlite. Reusable. Bubblers work better with it. Less messy.

Magash, im not concerned with messyness as much as effeciancy. How much is lava rock? Where do they sell it? On a related note, where did you buy your geolite your friend used for the original PMP?
