The waters not even filling one of the baffles all the way, it's leaking through the silicone. Do I use like a normal kitchen sponge? It goes where the water exits the skimmer right?

Yes that's where you put it. No, can't use a kitchen sponge. Gotta use a filter sponger. Can you see the intake on your return pump? Do you see a lot of bubbles being drawn through the intake?

Yea theres a bunch going into the intake because theres a bunch coming out of it and the exit tube is pointed in the general direction of the intake

Now I'm really pissed off that I cut the drain pipe shorter. I liked the water level better when it was higher >.<

Got the scratches out and everything's running great, but I may need to sell the set up :( I'm so friggin busy with school this semester and I'm not sure if I have the money to get it stocked and keep it going. Oye. Feel like I got myself in a mess :(

I know, just as it seemed it was going well. But I had no idea how busy I'd be when I started the Bachelors program. It's like another job, no joke :(

Gotta do what you gotta do.

Did you take the scratches out yourself or find someone?
