UH OH! :(

i woke up today and walked in the backroom where my 30 gallon is to hear no trickling of water!! i looked at the filter and made sure they were plugged in and i also unplugged them and put them in a different outlet but they still didnt work. it seems they have shorted or just quit out on me! . i had a 30 gallon filter and 2 smaller 10 gallon filters and one of the 10 gallon filters is still running?? anyways its all ok since i had some money i bought a bio-wheel 220 that said it had the filtration capacity for a 50 gallon aquarium. btw since my gourami didnt get along with the mollies i brought them back and traded them in for 2 albino corydoras! now i have a full shoal of cories! (4 albino 1 pepperd and 1 emerald cory.)

Clog is the likely term.;)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

the 30 gallon is pretty much fuly stocked if you want those goldfish to grow up full size. I wouldnt put anything else in there.
