Lady Ivy.. thanks. I really love how the light makes their colors come out even more.

Kim.. I don't really know what you mean but the type of filter I have is called Whisper.. it sits mostly in the water just the top inch or so out and the water flows out the top and sort of waterfall like back in to the tank. I put the lip as close to the surface as possible to try to get rid of the Waterfall affect. If you want I can try to take a picture of it.

Thanks for all the replies... I really love this new tank and I think my fish are much happier in it.

Well, an in-tank filter sits entirely in the tank while a hang on back filter (HOB) hangs off the back of the tank with an intake tube that goes on the inside, and an outflow area that dumps the water back in. I asked because Whisper makes both kinds, but from your description it seems like you have the in-tank model. Here's what I did with mine when I first got it. You can tape the end of the tube to the back of the tank, but I found that mine stayed on just fine without being taped.

I also put some nylon over the bottom where the water is sucked in because I've found out the hard way over the years that it's better to be safe than sorry . Oh, and make sure the edges of the plastic aren't pointy...I rounded mine off.
