no medicine works better than clean water.
no such thing as too much clean water, so go do a water change now.

Well right now I just came up to take a shower, I've been battling the sump as I did a water change, It seems that it was working fine, when I saw that the water was flooding the carpet, the kitchen, the office.....the sump overflow, water is coming out the out take and water is getting into the sump by the intake.....so the pump is working.....but I just couldn't figure that out. at the end I disconnect the pump in the sump, took out the intake U tube and also the out take out of the tank, I have the FX5 working in the aquarium but I will need to re-locate the heaters for now..and I think that the carpet probably will need to be replaced....
all the fish are doing fine so far.

Who needs a new floor get discus instead =p lol

Word of caution makes sure your San merah is a true one. Most pass flamingos and red golden and such of as a San merah. True San merah aren't red but more a blood color. Ill try to get a pic of my baby to show you later today

I love your fish, they are gorgeous and I love your way of thinking...who needs a new floor...discus, that is where the money should go...LOL
I have a trip to Ohio next week and I will b e there for 5 days, so the discus are not coming in until I get back....not that I don't trust the person that will baby sit my 3 dogs, my bird and all my fish... is just that I don't trust to put my discus in someone else hands.....
