I'm not all that incredibly handy when it comes to tools. What's the name of that electric jig saw thing I am gonna need to cleanly cut a slot in the back of the wood? There's a place around here you can rent things from...I want it to look clean and professional...I don't want to just start hacking at it with a saw.

So the holes I drill are basically a starting point so I can actually get the jigsaw into the wood to start cutting?

I'd have the same problem with the Eheim, lol. They're all gravity fed systems, and with what I've got now I'd have a loop in the tubing instead of a nice up and down line.

Awesome. Thanks "mate", lol. I actually do have an electric jigsaw. That's how much I know about tools, I don't even know what I own, haha. Now I get to hear my girl yell at me about sawdust when she gets home.

Yeah, we've got some family friends from Middlesex (he used to be President of Guiness America), and one time I introduced them as from the United Kingdom and they shot me an icy stare.

Sorry man, lol. I didn't know it was such a sensitive subject. You know us Americans don't pay any attention to what's going on in the rest of the world, haha. You can be my "European" friends, haha. I guess I've got some drilling and sawing to do in a bit.

I think Pigeonfood doesn't like me anymore. He's gone away, lol. Pigeonfood, come back, I'm sorry! Haha.

My new shrimp are awesome btw. It'd be nice if I could have my new filter up and running with them, but that's gonna take a bit more time.

Some types are jumpers. I had a Bala Shark try to go where no fish had gone before years back. I think Siamese Algae Eaters are jumpers too. Probably 70% of the top is covered on mine, I've got the light sitting on the glass lid, but I had to remove the front section of the hood because it didn't open correctly with the light sitting on it. I've got some pics in one of my threads, I'll see if I can find them.
