Some slight revamps.

I did some small changes to my tanks.

The 20 gallon:

I have a video of the widows in the 10 and a video of the shark in the 20 uploading them now.


Also, i don't want to create another post for this and take up space so I will put it in here. My filter is letting water exit through the area where the intake tube is along with the area where it is supposed to. It is at maximum flow. It is a filter for 20-40 USG tanks. Should I lower it to the minimum intake where it doesn't drain out of that area and only in the area where it's supposed to? Here is a picture that will better clirify what I mean.

It might be a little hard to see because the intake tube is clear.

If you can then adjust it down slowly until it just flows right through the outflow area only then I think that would be best.

Just because you can doesnt always mean you should!

Maybe your filter cartridge needs to be cleaned? I had this happen when my cartridges were gunked up. Just shake them in old tank water after a water change, and then it should clear it up for maximum flow again.

Wow! :shock: I can't believe how dirty that got in a 2 weeks! I will try and get a new on tomorrow. I scrubbed the thing but it didn't do much. I was able to turn it up a tad without it leaking through the wrong slot. Thanks Jacob.
