You would think I would learn after all these years of keeping salt and freshwater tanks. I won't even go into all that has happened in my day already, but the icing on the cake was G2 was active and ready for a full photo session, playing to the camera, chasing me out of his tank as I scrubbed walls to get some pics when I noticed the Eheim wasn't pushing enough volume. Sooooo I shut it down, drained it was in the process of taking the impellor apart and I did the same thing I did a few months ago. Broke the white rod in the impeller. It's now 8:15PM and the only petshop open is a Petsmart. Pack Jess up race to the shop....they don't stock Eheims and then I have this young kid trying to tell me how to octo proof my tank!!! Needless to say I am stressed. My plan is to move my huge Eheim off of my birdwrasse tank and put it on G2's and set up an Aquaclear on the birdwrasse tank till I can get the replacement part tomorrow. Many replacement parts as I will never again be stuck without that little white rod!!! Wish me luck!!!
