A little disappointed.



I was adjusting my hoses at the back, and when I removed the top suction cup, the outflow pipe dropped straight down onto the edge of the tank.

Now I have to find another outflow.

I hear ya. I broke mine 3 days ago. I was forgot to take the outflow out of the tank while tightening down the clamp that I had on there. Next thing I hear this glass cracking, by the time I knew it I had applied to much pressure by twisting the pipes against the tank glass. it sucks cause I paid almost $100 for the damn thing.

Actually... I even managed to break one of my acrylics. I'll never buy glass ones b/c they wouldn't last a day around me!
