We used a window screen and put it over the holes to keep our crawfish/crayfish from escaping just cut it to size and taped it over the holes and i inserted a piece where the filter is bc the hole is just big enough for them to get out and the male lays on the plant leaves right by it .. although they have never tried to escape

I set up my new Fluval 206 canister filter on my display tank. This is my first venture into canisters. I really like the filter, but I really don't like the stiff, ribbed hoses. Hopefully they get a little more flexible in time. It is good that the hoses won't kink or collapse, but they are a bear to work with. The good news is that it didn't leak and it primed and started right up. It is silent and it has very good flow control. I love the aquastop valve and how that works. I had to run to the store to get more ceramic rings. IMHO it comes with half the amount it should. I'm still running my Aquaclear 50 because it has all my good bacteria at this point.

Things in my QT are not so good. I tried rummy nose tetras again. 3 of the 7 I bought died in the first 24 hours 3 days ago. I woke up today to the remaining four having ich. So I'm treating. I hope they make it. At least they are in QT and easily treated there. I'm so glad I got a QT. It just paid for itself.

Well the plecos get over 2 feet and most turtles get 1ft. I dont think they are all gonna fit. You can do 700% water changes and 4 times daily and it still wont work. Im thinking of your animals welfare. Be kind to them and get them something in the 125 gallon range and 2 fx6 filters if you wanna keep the turtle in there
