Thank you! I ended up taking it all apart to make sure I had it put together correctly and rinsing it out. When I hooked it back up and turned it on it started pumping water.
I'm printing the directions you sent too, figured I might need those someday. I'm not all that good at finding information on the internet, but I sure am glad I found this site!
Next weekend my grandson and I are going to go pick out some fish for my tank. I'm thinking maybe some catfish, a couple of silver dollar fish, and some neon tetras. I don't know what else yet.
Even without the fish yet, this is so much fun I wonder why I never got involved with aquariums before.
