I had to tweak the plumbing so I won't be ready for water until tomorrow afternoon because I have to let the glue cure.

I am off to petsmart to get some more sand and filter media. When I get back I'll start prepping the trim and plumbing to be painted.

* insert string of swearwords here* so after spending the last several hours setting up my tank, the filters don't appear to be working and I have no clue what is going on I am ready to drain this whole thing and throw it out on the street.

Can you throw it out on my street perhaps?


Seriously though... without reading back through 13 pages of threads... what kind of filters are they? What's not working, are they just not pumping?

Everything is working now, the water just needs to clear up. Drookie I am running a Fluval 305, Eheim 2217 and I hung my Penn-plax cascade 1000 on the front to help clear the water faster. The Fluval wouldn't prime and was giving me some issues.

Ahh, the easy way to prime it (for future reference if it becomes un-primed) is to suck on the intake tube and get it flowing first, shut it off, hook it up, and let it prime itself.

That's what I normally do but with my set up it's kinda hard to do.
