Talking All I say is No 6 with a fat grin

Do some of you remember talking me out of the used 55g with the puffers and then I found a 30g (which is the size I wanted) but was mixed with a bunch fish I couldn't take in....

Well then I just Rd tripped tonight got me one heck of a good deal if I may say so:
30g with stand, Hood, awesome plant light, Rena XP2, and a whole 4g bucket full lil fish nick nacks that are pretty cool all for $50 and NO FISH. So really I got everything I need thou I do need some reading up on the Rena (never had them before) cause I don't see nothing to regulate the flow and as far as I know the XP2 is rated for a 75g tank not a 30g as I have

Ohhhhh I'm so happy This is now making Tank No 6 between Nov and now and I already love the 30g size/ shape I know why I wanted one all these yrs. And best of all now I have a spot to put all my extra plants so I won't need to put a add on here Now I just need to figure out what to stock

I'm so happy right now, like a kid on Christmas

AWWWWESOME! So glad to hear you got the 30g you've been wanting for so long. This stock list is going to be difficult. Looking forward to hearing what you decide on. Congrats!

Hubby already came up with a 1 page list of fish HE wants...needless to say; Not compatible, too large for the tank, wrong for our water And he got VERY hooked on a saltwater idea at the store today.....so far the past yrs I was able to talk him out of it buy I think I soon need to start educating myself there.

But first come the 30g now and figuring the Rena Filter out lol

LOL don't you love that? They just point to fish and say "I like that one". Like a kid in a candy store. I think Eric got the Rena for his new tank. You can ask him any questions you have.

I have the XP3. It should come with a valve that attaches to the output just before the spray bar or power nozzle attachment that comes with the filter. You can cut the flow back using that. If you don't see it already then it must not be there. ;(

Look at the inlet/outlet parts diagram. Part D is the valve http://www.planetrena.com/Filstar-Rena-Parts.html

I don't see it on the hose parts but I just kinda tossed everything the guy gave me in the back of the Jeep and I know the intake it still out there so maybe this part it too But a valve is a TOO easy fix really. I'm just not sure yet I wanna have it set up where I wanna set it up with a big bulky canister underneath to see.....
