  4. Hi Just cleaning my 2217 filters and was wondering if hose ,tap or o'ring fails Im going to have a big mess i was thinking of drilling a little hole in the inlet tube about 2 inches below water level do you think this will work to stop the pump emptying the whole tank if something fails anyone ever tried this . Thanks.

I'm not sure the shop just had plecostomus catfish on it don't think he even knew he couldn't tell me much about them asked how big he gets didn't know ,it's about 6 cm I got him for $29.95 not sure if that's expensive I say it's a sailfin he looks a lot like Heintz Avatar what type is that one.
  10. Hi Just wondering how do you know your filters need cleaning do you go by the flow slowing down or looking with a torch at your filter wool looking a bit brown . How dirty can you leave the filter wool before changing light brown or very dark brown before in effects the water. It's been 3 weeks since I cleaned my filters flow still strong the wool just got a light brown look to it should I clean them . Thanks
