Leaking Magnum 350-what parts should I order just "to have"?
Hi all! New member--I will get around to introducing myself, but first I am calling Marineland ASAP to order parts. I bought a used tank system (also came with fish--talk about a cylcing issue) and the canister is a Magnum 350.
I took it apart, cleaned it up (terrible shape) and got it running, but have a slow but steady leak from the quick connect coupling. I am going to order a new O-ring set for the couplers, but while I am ordering that are their other parts I should just have "on hand" for future issues? I was thinking the big O-ring and maybe silicone lubricant...
This is my first Magnum 350 filter. The goodnews is that I got the hang-on the back filter working, but I am still very underpowered (75 gallon South American cichlid tank). I tore down, moved, and set up the tank Sunday and when I went to get it there were lots of dead fish (I've never seen so much overfeeding--probably 100 pieces of food rotting on the bottom and she hadn't even fed in days) 2 more died in transport but the remaining 7 seem to be hanging on.
I'll stop there. I appreciate any help--thanks in advance!!!
