Well said lol. Even when it's all set up it's never finished. I'm constantly moving things around!

That was my professional answer!
It's true though, always something to be done, if you get one looking right another needs attention. If they all look great you go out and get a new fish! Start again! The cycle continues. . . . .

Full Flow.

Finally the parts needed for the second FX5 arrived. After some teething trouble including a leaky purge valve the filter came back to life. The BIG Tank now circulates up to 750 litres at a maximum of 4400 litres per hour.

Tomorrow the air pumps o2 system will go online, lack of parts delayed fit. This will feed up to 5 tanks, 24 hours +lights off boost for the planted tanks.

Picture of tank taken at 19:00 Thursday 21st November

It wasn't entertaining when I assembled all the (finally) gathered parts for fx5 no2 and the purge valve leaked. While my temp tank for the clowns was set up it only ran on one filter, I robbed some spares from filter 2. I completely forgot about the valve. Lots of water everywhere! Dismantled and fixed purge valve, I dare not operate it, but it does not leak! That should see me ok until my cheque clears.

Thank you for your comments, I am smiling at this point in time! (Secret photography freak)

Late to the party!

I'm not sure if it was the time in tank or the 2nd filter, these shots were taken before the food went in! Just like the old days! They were not fussed at all by my presence.

The usual pattern adopted by happy clowns.
Full set will appear on my flickr account sometime tomorrow.
