Also thinking about getting rid of 190g (again) and replacing it with a 100g tank. This 190 just ain't working for me. I don't like that it's difficult to grow plants in, it's difficult to maintain, and how it has less cabinet storage space underneath it.
I need to build a new water-bridge also. I need a longer one so that I can move the 190 tank (or new tank) closer to the wall.
That pretty much sums up everything that I'm thinking about.
Here's some pics-
This is the 190g tank (72"H x 24"W x 27"H). You can see how the crypts aren't doing too well anymore. They thrived when this tank was used as a paludarium and the water was only 1 foot deep. The new tank I'm thinking about getting would be 72"L x 24W x 13H. The same footprint as this tank, but about half the height.
This is the 85 g tank. It's 48"x 18w x 22h. The plants aren't doing all that great in this tank either. I'll be moving them to the new tank when I get it and try growing something else (or maybe I'll get rid of this tank also for something more ideal).
This is the 160g clown loach river tank. It's a low light tank, with just rope light, and my camera (logitech webcam) has no flash. Thinking I need a new camera too.
Hey Keith- I took a few pics to show you.
A hose barb on each of the quick disconnects broke. I used 2 part epoxy, a pvc coupling, and a hose barb to fix them.
On one, the priming pump and an EZ clip broke.
On that same bad one, a plastic piece in the motor housing that holds the impeller cover broke. I used some 2 part epoxy to hold the cover in place.
I just ordered an FX5, I didn't realize they were so expensive, so I just got 1. So I'll keep using the better filter and use the bad one for parts. The only thing wrong with the other is the broken hose barb on the quick disconnect, but it works fine with the way I fixed it.
