Thanks for keeping me "on the screen" batman, I'm still trying to figure out my way around the site, and sometimes only get a few minutes on a break at work.
You're probably right & I've used most of my filter equipment far longer than dealer recommended (of course), although I understood the wheels had fine charcoal imbedded in the filter material, but i could have been misinformed & have never taken one apart (not sure if you could see it anyway). A friend of mine (who has an independant pet store with his wife - he does the fins/feathers, she does the furries) told me he just throws the wheels away because if they clog & stop there can be a problem with the filter overflowing out the back.
So did our newbie tank friend (Tanus?) say what kind of fish she would be keeping?
I just set up a new 10 gal for some (6) "kohaku" swords. Pretty variety, red eyes, orange on front/back, white in middle - hubby calls them "creamsicle fish"; he's not a fishy person yet but I set up a large candy jar for him when he admired some fancytail calico goldfish and put it on his dresser with a calico and a black moor. He named them "Tango & Cash" after we watched the movie, and he said the moor was like Johnny Cash, "The Man in Black". I'm loving the names he picks for my fish too.
Is there a better way to be connecting on the site? I'm a bit frustrated. I don't have a website or anything fancy. Just want to connect with fellow fishy folk.
