    Default I need help fixing my filter!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey guys I have a normal filter that works really well. However the motor box keeps falling out. There was a piece of plastic that it snapped into but it broke. I tried hot glue around the seem where it snaps in the filter but that still wasn't strong enough to keep it from falling out. I just want to here any suggestions on what you guys think I should do thanks.

    P.S. Should I try silicone?

    you could try gorilla glue, silicone on the inside, the silicone won't hold the motor up

    I use Gorilla Glue to secure driftwood to eggcrate and plants to the driftwood and I have never had issues.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Is that the only filter on the tank?...if so, the tank is underfiltered, you want 2 times the tank size worth of filtration...an AC110 would be perfect: http://www.amazon.com/AquaClear-110-.../dp/B000260FV6

    There's a lot of canister filter options for that tank, too...just depends on how much money you (don't) want to spend, lol
