    Well more bad news for my nano. Im currently debating on getting rid of the powerhead I have or if I need to modify it. The crappy cone intake design of the aquaclear has a gaping hole that just sucks livestock in like a vacuum apparently. I bought some new livestock yesterday.

    1. porcelain crab -safe as far as I know
    2. 2 peppermint shrimp. - :death: 1 confirmed dead within 24 hours
    3. a target mardarin - :death: toast!!!!!!!!!!!! :frustrat::frustrat::frustrat::frustrat:

    This damn powerhead might as well suck all the cash in my wallet through it too and shred it.:grumble: Im thinking if i block it all out with sponge it will be ok...... but im still really unsure of it. Anyways here are a few pics i took yesterday (when I was excited)


    Here is my poor mandarin I didnt even get to name.

    and here is a shot where you can see my porcelain crab filter feeding and a pep close by

    Bad week for the nano.

    Dang that sucks about the powerhead. I have a aquaclear one that I only use for mixing up new water basically from the same issue. Nice looking crab and it was a pretty mandrin. Sorry for your loss.
