My guess is it's shot

I don't know about you ... but after taking a closer look at the tank ... is there event a filter in there ... somewhere .. either working or non? I don't see any hoses indicating a canister (granted all the green makes it hard to see). Since the water level is lower than the top rim ... you should be able make out if it has an HOB.

Ok ... how about internal filters" ... I don't see any surface agitation indicating bubbles or current flow? What's left UGF?

Just curious ... as Antipixx said ... if there is one ... it probably shot, or disconnected ... Hey ... that coffee maker's more important than a filter right?

Your right there is a bubble rod on the front of the tank but i see no other indication of any type of filter either. But the crystal clear water cooler next to the tank makes me mad, not to mention that the fish are more than likely hating it too. That is if they can see that far out of the tank.

I'd rewire tne cooler to push a filter and a small air pump, cut the bottom off the jug replace with lid of some sort an use that for a tank. Lol

Just saw an episode of Hardcore Pawn...the owner has what looks like a 40-50gal in his office with about 10-12 grown goldfish. They only show the aquarium for a split second and you can still see how green the water is.

I bet if you put those fish into clean water they'd probably die from shock,....the re-acclimation process would be interesting.....
