I had the brilliant idea to add my huge Eheim to Biddle's tank tonight as I have not moved him yet and it's still functioning on my 47 gal that is 1/2 full with only crabs residing. So...I disconnect, move it to Biddle's tank in the living room, cut a hose so it fits more securely, and realize the hose is hard so I cannot smash it onto the syphen. Quick look at the clock, I have 20 minutes to race to the Petshop before it closes. Well...I let them know I was on my way, got every light all the way there and am just now 2 1/2 hours later finishing a water change plus rehooking up my huge Eheim. Biddle sat out in the open and just observed the whole fiasco. He seemed to be saying what the heck is she up to now? And tomorrow? I have to go buy a new heater cause as I was reducing the water level, I started to smell a something burning. I'm racing around the house saying what's burning, Jess...what's that smell....I forgot to unplug the heater so whatever residue that was on it, was burning off as it was almost out of the water. Next time I need to plan a little more carefully. Leave plenty of time for mad dashes to the pet shop and unplug the heater. Biddle seemed actually amused....
