Hello everyone! I haven't been around in a long time. School just gets busier and busier.

Anyway, I finally got around to getting an AM (AB) reactor 1000 for my tank, loads more efficient than my homemade one. I was planning on mounting it inside my tank, but the holding plate and holder for fixing at the aquarium came glued together! I don't need the holder for fixing at the aquarium, and is there anyway to disconnect it, even though it's glued?

I got it from big als, and e-mailed them today to see if this is irregular. Does it usually come this way? Thanks!

Your referring to the round plastic pegs that go through the holes in the unit? They look to me like they should have been able to come apart - but mine were glued together as well and I was unable to seperate them. Fortunatly I am mounting outside the tank.

According to Mike from aquamedic all of thier units which they import from overseas are coming this way now because of slippage.
I have voiced my displeasure as well as the displeasure of my customers a few times on this and he is looking to see if they will stop doing that.
He said you can dremel it apart though

Thanks for the replies! When I said I am mounting it inside my tank, I meant inside the tank stand. I'll try dremeling it and see what happens. Thanks again!

Mine is the same way, glued together. Really a bad bracket design on it.

I think I'll just screw the part that is supposed to hang on the tank into my stand, I have the perfect place for it anyway. Thanks for all the help!
