    I have an older brother. He busted my nose a few times and knocked out some teeth. Lol. True. We also had great fun together before he decided he'd rather get high or drunk.

    The muddiest I have ever been...red clay mud. Mom made us strip in the back yard and hosed us off. She threw our clothes away. 40 years later it is still one of my fondest memories.

    So i have been bummed the last couple of days because my new build developed a slow leak from the outer box of my diy overflow. I added a THIRD gasket to the through-tank bulkhead (one inside the tank, one between the tank and the external box, and one inside the box) and I am happy to say it is fixed! It leaked about a gallon onto our off white carpets. Next time i am just going to order an overflow. The $100 savings is not worth the headache of a leak. Lesson learned!

    Here it is, no leaks! It is cycling now. I have one wave pump and the dt light still on my hex tank, but for the most part its ready to go. I kept the rock work simple as i went overboard in the hex tank. 20190515_200111.jpg 20190515_200225.jpg

    Hello,

    I have had to come catch up on this one as I am beyond frustrated with my current problem with mine and why or how it actually happened. Plus I have so many reliable people say it’s this but another say nope it’s this and honestly I have no idea but I’m hoping I’m guessing right.

    @Katrina71 so far the only ones I wanna strangle are well more like groups on why we have not developed something better.
