Lol I can return it Tuesday and its the brand that makes Koralia.. I forget the name and dont feel like getting out of bed lol.

Also, the tank is a lot clearer now and I decided to put a bubbled in just so I can get it moving.. Looks decent.

Yep.. It just stopped... Like for no reason. I'm getting in store credit probably though so it's okay.

Did you check the intake? Turn it off and poke around in there?

I did a lot of fidgeting with the pump after it broke and nothing seemed to work.. Kind of disappointing.

Hey question, do you have a ro/di unit? Or are you just buying your water?

If you buy water I would test it for salinity alkalinity etc, I know someone who made their own water and just used prime or something similar and had no problems with it then changed to store water and fought with algae till she got preggers and couldn't put her hands in the tank anymore

She made her own water? Like out of tap water? Moral of the story: stick with one type of water all the way?
