last week i scored a Cascade 700 canister filter on craigslist in a trade for an old HOB and a bag of molly fry. powerful little filter, but one of the shutoff valves leaks. found the part on kens for about $4. no big deal.

this weekend i found what was supposed to be a 25 gallon glass tank that came with a Fluval 404 for $20. upon arrival i found the deal was even sweeter. the tank was actually much larger than the guy though and it's acrylic with a built in sump system. measured it out and it's 46.75 gallons. needs some serious cleaning though. really impressed with the flow on the 404. very nice filter.

i also picked up another 125 tank and stand from a guy at work who upgraded to a 180 gallon saltwater tank for $150. my mobas are finally getting the tank they deserve.

anyone have any tips on how to clean acrylic tanks? don't want to scratch this thing up too bad.

also, i have no experience with canisters. is there a trick on how to get the tops to seat right so there are no leaks? i'm scared to push down on them too hard. don't want to break anything.

Get a spare impeller shaft, also check that the impeller is a good fit on the shaft...it should be free to spin but not sloppy. all the parts are easy to get and replace. a good score all around.
