PostSubject: YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IT   Tue Apr 20, 2010 5:48 am

Just sat watching marine tank thinking its still the same
looking rubbish....
that new wave maker is absolute rubbish..

Malc getting really fed up with me now whinging on about it.
he has just lifted lid and gone in tank.and guess what?
both the air outlet pipes fitted in tank are not working, both have come out
now how long this has been going on I dont know?
while he was sorting this and pushing the pipes back on.

Marmalade the biggest clown went for malc to bite him
the same time he twisted the inlet pipe, she jump and double twisted in mid air
only a olympic champion diver could do..
and managed to flip herself in the back chamber where the heater is...
had she gone in the other one its only small
and we wouldnt have been able to get the net in to get her out.

or another 5 inch to the left.she would have been in ELVIS TANK..
Had his lid been open of course. mmmm yum yum ready salted..

if she had gone further back, there is some holes where the plug/wires go out the back
she would have gone through there and landed on the floor.
we would have had to half empty tank drag it out to get her from back.

now has this been causing all this diatoms/algea in the tank.
as only thing what has been sending air round is the small power head.
Malc put some phosphate in a couple of weeks ago.
so now wondering if he has disturbed the pipes to outlet nossels
I Bet it has..

SO A WORD OF WARNING.....
to all those with open top tanks.. clowns jump
so finding Nemo film does have some truth in it..lol

CORRECT.LOL
it was just getting movement from the powerhead which is only a small one.

here look she landed in the chamber at the rear... middle one the heater and a small piece of white filter pad is in there
the one on the left has the bag of phosphate in used to have skimmer in there as you can see,
but its not in there now.
and the one on the right has nothing in, but thats where the air pipes for filter are.

can you see where i have highlighted a black circle on the left of the tank
on the lip/edge. well thats where i found one of them one morning when i got up
i heard a slapping noise,opened the lid and there he was...
Malc has stuck half of a plastic peg there now, so no landing ramp for them.lol
blimey have I Got KAMAKAZIE CLOWNS...................

Hope your algae problems lessen now, it will be interesting to see what happens there.
