+1 to KevinVA, I've read your entire journal (really beautiful work done on the tank, stand, sump....). I've knocked my self out researching the possible cause of illness with my black phantoms, did everything I could think of and one my one they just died off, 3 females (13 originally) remain so my fingers are crossed. Soooooo Ohio really isn't THAT far from PA, anytime you want to come over and do the plumbing on my sump you are more than welcome :D_______________________________________________

Thanks Kevin and Judi. My remaining 5 seem to be doing ok and have endured the last two water changes without any problems. The fish all seem to appreciate the lower current in the tank. I am planning to pick up the serape tetras today. I think a school of 12 to start. I may relocate the cardinals into the 55 and move the serpaes from from the 55 to the 72 since they are the more aggressive fish I have.
@judi building the entire project was and still is a lot of fun. N.E. PA is a bit far. It really is not a difficult task, I know you can do it! I am glad to help out if I can.
