    Beware of gallery of pets.

    Yup. Used to work about 100yds from there so would stop in fairly regularly in the early 00s, and it wasn't bad at all, just really limited stock. Definitely went downhill quite a while back - don't think I've even poked my head in there once in the last 5+ years.

    $7 part, $3 for shipping. So now I wait and manually move water... My poor fuge is just sitting there stagnant (this was the overflow feeding the fuge).
  5. What's the littlest or cheapest break/failure that has caused the biggest pain in your ares or most expensive fix? Friday afternoon, I caught a glimpse of some standing water on the backside of my tank. Found a tiny leak coming from my HOB. After uncoupling the box from the plumbing, the bulkhead leaving the bottom of the box was broken - my guess is from me wiggling the standpipe back and forth to get it out every now and then. This is probably a $3 part, if I can find one (have an email in to Eshopps, so hopefully I hear back on Monday morning). If not, it's an $80 replacement, plus another $20+ in plumbing. And more like $150 total if I upgraded to what I really should have on there and plumbed it up correctly. But the price really isn't the biggest pita: The other overflow can't handle the flow on it's own, even w/ my return pump cranked down as far as possible. That means I have to manually go over to the tank and plug in my return to get display>sump flow going, watch/wait for the water to come up to the display rim, and then unplug the return. Rinse/repeat. There have to be some that will beat that, and misery loves company, so please trump my broken $3 part!

    Haven't seen anything, just observing the pattern. If it was water quality or something in the water, all of the acans should have gone south at roughly the same time, in a more uniform manner for each colony. What's happening is that the death starts on one edge spot and works it's way across the colony over a period of time. Some time later, the same thing starts to happen to another colony. That tells me it's an organism, and likely a single one or it would be able to attack multiple colonies at the same time. Very doubtful on the dipping. They have grown out to 5x the size they were when they went in, so I'm not sure how I'd get them out. Shoot, maybe 10x...here's about a month after going into the tank:

    What a freakin bummer...looks like it's a pest eating/killing my acans, one colony at a time...
