yes willow I agree. What I did was cut all the mesh off the cartridge and wrapped the mesh around the old carbon and stuffed it into the little tank

Update

Ok first off lets start with the 55 gallon. Doing great no problems no worries . Though oddly enough it seems as though 3 of the guppy babies have turned into what appears to be Endlers. Very pretty fish with all kinds of different colors. 2 of them have the cool split tails and 1 has a normal tail, very interesting I thought. They seem to be kind of aggressive so I had to put them in with the daughters 20 gallon danio tank hahaha.

Now for the 2.6 gallon. Well it seems that for 14 or so Red Cherry Shrimp all was fine. Short lived though I might add. They seem to have the perfect spot for breeding . Soon after set up we had 20.... then 30.... good lord 40 ? Ok ok go to the pet store and buy the fluval spec 10 gallon , yeah I know money grows on trees around here (I wish) hahaha. Didnt matter 2.6 was way to small. Bought some of that black moon sand or whatever it is called. Used the water and everything from the 2.6 filter parts and all. All shrimp adapted well and I now have probably over 80 of those very fun to watch little buggers.

I know pics right ? Well I got to the bottom of the camera issue. It wasnt lost it was broken and then hidden.(out of site out of mind I suppose) (didnt work). The oldest confessed and it seemed like an honest accident. So on a good note we go on vacation here soon and I get to buy a better camera . And there we go. Thats the update and sorry I havnt been around much. Work is still busy as all get out.
