So looking at the thread i haven't updated in awhile.

my stocking has leveled out.

i currently have

8 Rummy Nose Tetras
2 Double Red Aggazzis
1 Reticulated Hillstream Loach
5 Panda Cory
1 Albino Cory
1 Green Aneus Cory
1 Juli Cory
3 Bamboo shrimp
1 Vampire shrimp
unknown RCS, and wild type RCS.

I had some serious problem with my Canister filter. it wasn't producing anyflow, and what i learned is that the motor housing was not sealed properly, and it was allowing air into the housing and stopping the syphon effect. i lucked out and a local LFS had torn down a large salt water tank that just so happened to have two canister filters on it, the Filstar XP-m (the canister I was having issues with) and a XP-L (up to 175g) for CHEAP!!!!!!!!! so i snatched those up. and swapped motor housings and everything is fine. all of the fish really love the high current and swim in it all day long!

he got stuck and i had to free him!
