Lol! They are. Too bad they broke so quickly. But probably my own fault for not being too careful. They are the aquatic magic pipes. I like them

It's funny, usually it's the intake that breaks for me. I went through three sets of powermann pipes, and I still have like two outflows laying around something. I may actually be able to send you a replacement if you don't mind the mismatch.

frrok, that is DEFINITELY the way to go. Their whole CO2 paintball setup is exactly what you need. And I'll be happy to send you some Purigen if you need it, just PM me. It will clear your water up in no time; just add to the filter and BAM! sparkling clear water! As for the 1000ND fixtures, I'm using it on a 50 Gallon tank, and I have to say, they are worth their price! OMG, I'm so never going to go back to any other type of lighting solution. It's LEDs for me or nothing from now on...

Cool! Thanks for the excitement! I'm pretty stoked on trying Co2. Just need to get some money together for my light and set up. Hopefully soon.

Ha, my tank always tends to look better when I don't look at it for a few days ;-). What do you do for a living, if you don't mind my asking?

I'm in tech. I worked at a company for 12 yrs then got laid off in October. Every since then I've been working temp jobs and a weekend gig to make money. It's tough out there.

Just got back from my trip on Monday and I was finally able to take a shot today. The tank is in desperate need of maintenance. I've been so busy ever since I got back. I'm hoping to get a chance to do it Friday. It's finally time for another trim on my stem plants as well. Got my Purigen also. Thx Styxx!
Stay Tuned.
