Did a water change this morning, gonna do one everyday til nitrates are down.

Now comes the dreaded pvc part of the sump. I should receive my return nozzles sometime today, I won't get to it tonite cause I have bike club but if I can't sleep again then I can get going on it.

Instead of from the bottom up, I'm working from the top down. I keep trying to get it from the bottom off but it keeps falling over and I don't want to cement anything that I can't get to stay in place, So my 90 deg elbows should hold them up.

Anyone got a pic of how you set your return nozzles? I have to go up and over the top of the tank, I'm hoping these are a little flexible cause if not I'll need an elbow under water.

LOL, just wait for the pictures....eventually....with the pvc cement, I love purple but that purple don't lub me.

I'm gonna stop by pharmacy tomorrow and see if they will give me a syringe so I can get rid of these aptasia before they get out of hand. Do I need to use a needle syringe or can I just stab them with the end of the plastic syringe that doesn't have a needle?

Sweet, I was afraid I'd poke myself with the needle.
