Yeah, 150g tank. The flow rate is only 110gph, so I gotta get a maxi pump. My return pump is like 1500gph, way to much.

Parasite. I had ick and now the tank is empty, for about 3 weeks now. I'm getting a Tusk in about another 2 weeks and don't want any issues. I have a temp QT for the tusk when I get him. Just a extra precaution.
