Yeah. Before I used the filter I just wedged it in the tube and blew and doesnt seem to take much pressure to get through the filter. Even when tightley pushed in.

Wel the species I wanted for this tank was a assam which goes under the nickname blue rainbow snakehead ( blue bleheri) even though I made 100% clear not the normal bleheri. He has said his orders got messed up and that he now has only the normal bleheri. :headbutt: but since ill get them cheaper than in the shops im thinking of getting them. They are lovely snakeheads I have to admit
