More work. Had a flood the other day while setting up a new filter now the basement smells like mildew. Turned the dehumidifier and it sounds like a diesel engine. huh

...bummer Willie....

...I started rescaping my tank yesterday...pulled almost all the plants and they're in 6- 5g buckets...put on an HOB to clear the silt out of the water and today will position some large rocks in there and start trimming up the plants and placing them back in the tank...I knew it would be a 1.5 day job!...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

Luckily the dehumidifier smoothed out a bit. lol Since it got up to 76 degrees I had to take advantage of the day. Kobe and I just got back in the house a little while ago.

Since it will only get up into the 50s tomorrow I decided that will be a perfect time to get back on track with the filter maintenance.   huh mim
