|Subject: fry saver used as an egg tumbler? Sun Aug 17, 2014 9:56 pm|| |
Has anyone used one of those hang on the side of tank fry savers - as an egg tumbler? The one I'm talking about uses an air uplift tube to draw water into the small compartment and then runs back into the main tank. It resembles a hang-on filter only it is entirely clear. It was designed to put guppy fry etc in so they wouldn't get eaten. It has a relatively low waterflow. I am wondering if it might work as an egg tumbler? How much agitation does an egg tumbler need?
Commence laughing about my question now..

yeah, they work well, but you need more water movement in there so add a gentle airstone in there as well
