  1. Congrats! They are easy to maintain, and starting the filter up is a breeze. Sooo much Powah!
  2. Prime - Unpleasant to the nose....bleaches your new clothes.
  3. Hi everybody. I just wanted to let anybody that didn't know that Prime water conditioner can bleach your clothes, the 5 1/2 year mystery I went through has been solved. I was having a problem with small to medium bleach spots showing on my t shirts, nobody else in the household was having this issue. I finally wised up, and tested my API test kit and Prime on an old black t shirt, a bleach ring started to show up the next day where I applied the Prime, at one week, the t shirt had a huge bleached out stain. I am going to start wearing my grubby clothes on water change days.
  4. THE ONLY PRESCRIPTION IS MORE COWBELL alright I'm done sorry! You Got it! LOLOL!
  5. You've gotta feevah, and the only prescription is more tanks and equipment! This is very normal. I went cheap on a few things, like Jebo stuff at first, it worked, but I have a huge pile of stuff that I don't use anymore. My advice would be to go with the good stuff to begin with and you will save overall.
  6. I have been using Eheim Jager heaters for over 3 years and have not had a problem. All the good LFS around me use Jager heaters for their livestock, and have been for decades.
  7. Thank goodness for youtube and Kokos! If cell phones and facebook were taken away, people would go nuts! It's crazy how much we rely on tech now. So, what Eheim did you have, and which one would you get now?
  8. Here is a video about the leak around the priming button, this guy has his own fix. This is why I'm looking a a couple Eheim classics rather than the pros, A buddy at work has had his 2217 since the 1980's and it's still running strong, he has only replaced the impeller once.
  9. I don't know much of anything about live plants or undergravel filters. I do know that there is some controversy regarding undergravel filters, hopefully somebody more knowledgeable will chime in. I personally like the hob canister combo, the hob for the surface agitation, ease of cleaning, and they can provide oxygen to the water. I like canisters for the media capacity, and the ability to move water. It works like peanut butter and jelly does.
  10. My pleasure. That young man did a great job with that video. The Fluval FX5 will do around that, but the FX5 is a very powerful filter, I don't know if people would recommend it for a 55 with fancies, maybe too much current. Do you want to completely get rid of your hob's?
  11. I will be getting this for the goldies. Has anybody fed this to a pleco? If so, do they like it?
  12. They are number 1 in my book... Wish I could afford one again What one did you have? Did it stop working? Do you prefer classic or pro?
  13. I learned from this video on youtube, this trick works great.
