I just got home and found one of my condys wrapped in my penguin 550. I don't know if it's alive or not. My lfs
told me once unless it's "coming apart" it's still alive. Is this correct? Iv'e been meaning to build a filter for it, Since I had to cut the strainer apart to get the condy out I fixed the problem with them getting caught in it. I took a heater guard, wrapped fiberglass screen around the opening and hot glued it. then I hot glued the whole thing to keep it from comming apart and then since I had to cut the strainer off the old one I just hot glued the new contraption right on what was left of the base and then just slid it back on.
