Kayso, today I finally bought the ten gallon for the sorority. It's the Aqueon deluxe kit, so it came with a heater (adjustable), net, and thermo-sticker, along with the filter, a fluorescent light hood, and other baubles.
When you install the filter and hood, there's a perforated indent-type thing on the back of the hood that's perfect for the filter, and the directions say I am simply meant to just cut it off the hood.
But HOW? I tried a box-opener and normal scissors, which is really all I have access to. Anybody else have/had this problem that can help me with a solution?
