Pwc on Jupiter's 5 gallon tank, where the neons are currently hanging out. Did a 50% water change on my 29 gallon. Updated my tank journal on Aquarium Advice.

Ahhhhhhh, what did I do with my tank today?

Woke up to a fried impeller on my 46 community. Removed filter housing, cleaned everything, I mean everything, including the impeller, to try to will it back to life. No go. Flooded my living room floor when I was priming the filter and the impeller unit fell out. Oops.

So, after work, I get to go to the lfs to pick up a new filter and media and probably fish, too.

Fluval C4 - looking for recommendations (new thread started) for HOB filter for my 46, stop by if you have the chance.

Ooh, sounds like your filters are bad luck! Go get an Emperor Penguin 350, they are dirt cheap on Amazon.com and do their job well. If you get it and it is loud, take out the impeller, wipe it well (But carefully!!) With a cloth. Place it back in the housing securely, it will purr like a kitten.

cut up the media from the hobs and put it in the baskets of the canister filter .. then you can stop running them and the canister will become established WAY FASTER. just wantch your parameters over the next few weeks, or do an extra water change each week

nothing yet, I'm at work. But yesterday I checked to nitrite level on the transferred 110gallon and it was at 0. I also added a powerhead to it. today, after work, I plan to add a new fish or two to it.

Switched out my 2 aquaclear 50s for a Fluval 406 on my 55g and did some pruning on my 20long. Now although my hobs were quiet I get nervous and check on the canister because it's literally so quiet it's like it's not even there.
