FINALLY got it going again. Took long enough. I had to drain the entire thing and yell at it before it would work. Seems better than the last time I had to do this, so winning! Tank isn't very happy though. I'll be messing with it for the next couple of days to get it back up and running nicely.
Paid off my credit cards today too. Also looked at a 75 gal
drilled tank w/ stand and canopy w/ 6 bulb t5ho. 400 bucks...still thinking about it, but i'd need a uhaul to get it from state college. We'll see, I'll think about it more.
