You could just replace it or add more, or use just the old, but either way you wanna rinse the beejesus, out of it

Got the ok to get the 125 gallon. Going on craigslist to find one. Wish me luck. Going to convert my now empty 75 gal into a sump and sell my 90 when I empty it. Help offset the cost. Was going to use the 90 as sump, but figured I'd get more for a 90 gal tank than a 75... I'll keep y'all updated.

These stupid PH's have claimed another fish...My clowns sleep on a slate rock by the power head and I guess he got to close. He was my biggest one and most colorful too..

So sorry about your fish.....:-(

What kind of power heads do you have? Maybe you can put something over the intake?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

802's. They have a screen, but by the time i notice they get sucked up, there is nothing i can do. I'm getting the 1400's on the 1st. Not going to risk another fish.

One of my few fw deaths came from the hands of a powerhead. After that I went with all koralias. The I've only lost 3 fish in my freshwater tanks in over a year and one was to the powerhead. Now you know so youre fixing the situation.

Still sucks though. :-(
