vacuum leak by [email protected]
Hi, I have a fluid art challenger system running against our pond. I suspect I have a vacuum leak somewhere since the pump starves for water after about 10-12hrs. Any pointers on how one can diagnose the problem? No apparent water leaks while the system is running. TIA

My goldfish have got finrot, tailrot by [email protected]
Hi I've noticed recently that a couple of my fish (goldfish) have lost their tails. I'm assuming this is tailrot\finrot. I've googled the subject and discovered that it's quite easy to treat by medicine and a partial water change but is there anything else I can do to make sure it doesn't happen...

long-time rec.ponders: hose filter to remove ammonia by Wendy
Hi Ann, Long time since I've been here! Hadn't you moved away from Houston? Anyway, it might have been my post? When I had city water with chlorimine in it, I used to attach a water filter to the end of my garden hose and just let it trickle through the filter to add water. Not the cheapest...
