Yeah...I adjusted it to the lowest setting and it was still too much current. I think part of the problem is the shape of the tank, too. Those Marina tanks have a funny shape, so it's hard to judge the angles to figure out where the current's going to go. I'm planning on getting a new and different filter, probably Elite biofoam, since I actually think that my fish is getting his fins sucked into the intake and they're getting ragged from the hard sponge that's in there.

I'm on my second filter too, I switched from a tetra whisper power filter to a sponge filter as the first one made too much current.

Yup...still too strong. I'm gonna pick up a sponge filter when I get the chance and keep that one for a slightly bigger tank (when I get one).

Ok guys!! here it is!! or rather here are some of my new tanks! I still have a couple more to do for the rest of my fish.

The complete setup so far:



(and in order) Firefly's Tank (Spring Theme):



Pegasus's Tank (in a Greek theme):



Firedrake's Tank (a Fiery Autumn Theme, I might try to find a small red decoration for that empty side):



Phantom's Tank (a winter/ice palace theme, I might see if I can laminate white printing paper to use for the background and a decoration for in between the plants):



I will post the last two when I am done :)

thanks I am very proud of myself :) now I just need to find room for one more tank around that area. I could put it on the bottom shelf of one of those stands, but the bending over and having no space to work would be a pain. plus It is hard to get lights down there :P I'd love it if I had another 12" right next to the last tank :P

Frank's current tank, his 5.5 gallon! I already posted it somewhere else but oh well~ I'd love to put real plants in it sometime soon, and some pots and such, but plants are so expensive! One day I shall.

I'll put up a photo of Roy's tank once I buy all the stuff for it on Friday, I have nice plans for it in my head C:

that looks cool, I like how the hide looks like it is "growing" from the gravel.
