I got a new 10 gallon tank for my Violet and the filter it came with is too long. The company is now closed for the weekend so Im hoping maybe someone can help. I got the Marineland Bio-Wheel LED Aquarium Kit 10 gallon and the filter it came with (penguin bio wheel 100) doesn't really fit in the tank. It basically came with all these little extender pieces so I followed the directions and its too long. So I tried to take off the middle piece but they don't hook together. Its either all of them or one and with the one it only goes about half way down the tank. Basically I'd just like to know if this is ok. If the filter doesn't need all the pieces it comes with and that it will still work properly. As of now its running just fine but I just got it today and haven't put Violet in it yet so I dont know if its actually doing much.
