You not using the undergravel filter then GD?

Ive only used fluval filters GD but I find then easy to look after and efficient too. Theyre not too bad a price either.

I have the same tank and, although I kept the UGF, I also added an AquaOne 101F internal "hang-on" filter which has a removeable sponge for easy rinsing. Smile

I got one but it didnt come with a UGF but i dont like them and just used the aqua one included which is fine and had some nifty extras. If looking for a new one though the eheim aquaballs are very good Smile

Hey FF fraid not, firstly that tank now houses a few Killifish.

Secondly the Galaxy's which I did find were in TERRIBLE condition all very concaved bellies, either they are being very poorly cared for or the all have some sort of infection.

However I not have a few choices, Firstly I dont really like the 320 as its made of platic and I seem to have problems keeping it clean. Secondly if I do decide to try breeding something its either Galaxy's (when in better condition) or a pair of shell dwellers

I got marks both inside and out the tank from water - looks like smears wither that or the guy who previously owned it has used something to clean it and has left these marks on it.

I personally aint keen on the 320 if it were glass it would be a great little piece!

Wish I looked into the material it was made of before bidding...bummer oh well it is doing its job. till i find a better 1 Razz any sugestions Smile

With a good bit of elbow grease the smears should come out? Just a clean damp cloth maybe! I am pretty sure my 320 is glass!
