ok the tank has been going for just over 4 weeks now,,
was doing a water change today and the return pump sucked a glass thermometer in the pipe ,had to drain the sump to get it out of the pipe that was fun
but should have some better pics soon dave came and was kind enough to take some for me ( now should be able to tell what type of clowns i have ) at last,,

so and help typeing the clowns would be great

thanks
