    Lol @Vleis Visagie

    Still weighing up my options, not sure between a doser or pump dispenser bottles daily as at the moment waterchanges are not keeping up

    Ok so I got hold of some of those pump dispenser bottles, will follow up on using them in the near future.

    For now, anyone know an option to upgrade the return nozzle/plumbing on these tanks? I believe a slightly more 'open' nozzle would allow a little more flow through:)

    So the last upgrade I want to make on this tank is adding a better return nozzle. I would love a variable flow one such as the spin stream (provided it doesn't decrease too much water flow) however they don't seem to be available in the country. Any recommendations or suggestions?

    @Vleis Visagie the one you showed above looks great but I doubt it will fit through the return hole on the nuvo 10, and may also be a bit close to the water level. Do you still have the stock return setup on your tank?

    I am still rolling with the stock duckbell nozzle.. But I ASLO want more random flow. I ordered me a ripoff of the IM Spinflow on Alixpress, gonna be a while before ots here but itll come, i hope. I thinks its called a 360deg spin nozzle.

    Im also looking at maybe just adding a JEbao SW2, they seem pretty small.

    Ok so I’m now very fed up with the stock nozzle on the nuvo 10...

    Took it off today and the flow increases dramatically, only issue is that it’s too near the water’s surface so cause splashing.

    Anyone know if I can get a standard 45 degree elbow that will fit into the outlet on the tank? Think it’s 10 or 12mm ?

    @Vleis Visagie maybe throw some Kh buffer in your topup water?
    I’ve added a piece of Fiji rock, other than that not much. I’ll post pics when I’m home this weekend!
