we were away for a week,my step son phoned me
panicing because fish were dying,and he said the tank was going cloudy,
i asked him to see if he could see the water moving at the top,he said
there was next to no movement,i asked him if he could hear humming from the filter
he said yes,but i walked him through turning it all off and checking the filter,
he said the sponges were chocked up with crud,so i walked him through rinsing them out,
he put it all together and he said the flow was still bad,not much i could do but wait untill i got home.
no more fish died,but i checked the filter the next day of gettting home,it was hot
and nasty to say the least the impellor was burnt to the housing
.............man it stunk to high heaven ! ! !
i paid £100 for the 405 was ment to be more but i got a bit of a discount coz i'm a good customer
i need to re-home two large plecs befor i restock,as they are getting too big and need to go.
my firemouths are doing great though,so i don't really know what to go for ???????
