Bad luck this morning. I built the platform for the skimmer and got it going but it was too high so I cut it down 2" and when I plugged everything back in the shaft inside the pump broke. It just a small POS plastic rod. I'm wondering if I can buy another at the LFS
or if I can just get a piece of plastic rod somewhere to fix it.
Also, my powerhead has seemed to also break it's rod. However, the powerhead's is more of a cylinder and I managed to glue that one. I'm sure it won't hold long. It's going to be another month before I can afford even some used powerheads so I'm crossing my fingers.
In other good news, the tank was crystal clear this morning and the clowns had their first frozen shrimp breakfast and ate well.
