EnderRen Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 (edited) So, I am becoming a new fish keeper, and man has it been a ride. I have got my tank set up (still needs plants but I digress), and today I got home from work, went up stairs to check on my aquarium, and... my aqua clear filter stopped working. No rhyme or reason, but now it will not turn on. Nevertheless I would not let a setback like this stop me because I have a backup filter (however cheap it may be it is better than nothing) My fish come in tomorrow, and I am kind of stressing out because I am not sure if the knock-off $10 HOB filter is going to cut it for a day or two as my replacement aqua clear comes in. All of this while I am trying to do an in fish cycle. Waiting isn't really an option, so my best bet now is to add my seachem prime and fritz zyme 7 to try to cycle my tank. I have kept all the filter media in the tank, to keep the bacterial that (I hope) has been growing, and it is just sitting on the bottom of my tank until the filter arrives. It supposedly will be here in a day or two but, it being a holiday weekend, I am not very optimistic. Tomorrow I will provide another update once the fish arrive! ANY ADVISE WELCOME! The picture of my hardscape with my filter media in it, and my crappy filter buzzing along. (at least my heater is doing its job propperly) Edited December 20, 2022 by EnderRen 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
