Re: will loud filter noise harm fish?

i have made repairs on filters were the rubber
caps ware out at each end of the impeller by using
some air line or some small bore rubber pipe you sometimes
get in puncture repair kits and you can also find it in
fishing tackle shops hope this helps

Re: crab eggs and fish eggs

I don't know about feeding them to plecos, but should be alright in moderation. I used to keep the eggs from anything I caught on fishing trips to feed to my fish that evening when I got home.
