As mebbid said, you fix to your tap, it empty's the required amount as you clean your sand/gravel, then you get it up to the required temperature and it fills your tank, you add your de-chlorinate as your tank is filling, my python is around 24 feet long to the bathroom..........piece of cake doing wc...........

Snowflake Morays are really fun to keep. I had one named Jaws for about 2 months and he was doing great and feasting on shrimp. I did research and decided to have another snowflake. A few days later I noticed Jaws hunting a War Paint Goby and succeeding soon after that Jaws was hunting again this time for the longer snowflake. For days on end I would see them both swimming in open water one the predator one the prey. I decided to take back the second eel, but Jaws wanted live food now and decided to give my thumb a try (he missed) and some other fish in the tank (never caught anything) so he went to a large FOWLR tank that my friend owns.

I am hoping to avoid that with my fish. My clowns are the smallest thing in my tank by far, so if he tries to hunt them I will just set up another reef tank. At the moment my snowflake isn't even the diameter of a pencil so it's gonna be a while.

I refilled the evap. Wiped everything clean inside and out. Added shells and a decoration. Removed old driftwood. Hoping to get some more fish soon. My cory made an appearance today.

I'd get a picture of him in the tank, but he's hiding right now











Yes, but only when it's hooked up to a faucet. The running water from the faucet creates the siphon.

Beautiful. I'm so jealous. How's he doing?

I just scored a 55g tank, stand, Magnum 350 filter and other accessories for FREE!!. All I had to do was drive about 25 miles to pick it up. Anyways, I set it up in my finished basement and added a 50lb bag of Quikrete Premium Play Sand to it. Bought some decor for it and will place that tonight and also attempt to start a fishless cycle. Feel like a kid at Christmas.

Well, As soon as I put him in he proceeded to dig a hole underneath my rocks. Following that I fed the tank and he got chomped on a bit by this guy



although it really didn't seem to bother him. The goby doesn't really have teeth so I guess it was more of a gumming than anything.

Then he proceeded to chase this guy around for coming near him.



but he completely ignored the eel.

Since then I haven't seen him but that's not unexpected.

I'm just glad my trigger hasn't decided that the eel was food. His teeth look a lot like this (not my picture)
