I wish I had the knowledge and budget to make it a saltwater set up. It would be a nice size for a seahorse, although I've read that they are very tough to keep.

Same Tank

The knowledge is easy enough to come by. Plenty of helpful folks on these forums. As for the budget , that's a little tougher but you can purchase coral frags fairly cheap. Look on craigslist and you can usually find fellow hobbyist selling them much cheaper than you think, I have this same tank with a nice little nano reef going strong. Just my thoughts.

Cheers,
Cliff

Cliff, thanks for the craigslist insight. Do you think my replacing the missing discharge adapter with a simple PVC elbow would work?
I'd love to see a pic of your tank. Any chance you could post a shot?




Thanks,
Shawn

I wouldn't be too concerned about the return elbow. Or plugging up the extra holes. When I had my hood filter running there were extra holes as well. But as long as the water is getting back into the tank it doesn't really require direction.

Pic of my tank

Ill try to get a pic next weekend. It's true that as long as the water is making back into the tank you will be fine, however if your doing live coral they can benefit from the movement of water that might be achieved with the elbow if you can make it directional to provide a little flow over them.

I just got a reply from the company that they have replacement parts, they will get back to me with a price. I'd rather have the proper parts for the filter but thanks for the feedback.

Cliff, I look forward to your pic. I am going to stick with freshwater so coral won't be an issue but thanks for the info all the same.

Dan, after waiting a week for a reply I got an e-mail from the company sales rep stating, and I quote, "You do not need that part as the water returns to the tank through the little holes under the filter." When I wrote back that I was still interested in getting the part because I wanted my filter to be complete,,,,no further replies were sent.
It seems rather odd that they would design a filter with an un-needed part, don't you think? Makes no sense to me.

Thanks for the reply, I find that very strange and perhaps unprofessional as they suggest a part made for their filter basically isn't needed, I would very much like this part to "complete" my filter because at the moment the water returns to the tank through a hole, basically it looks as though something is missing and does make it look incomplete.
