    it's only a ten gallon so i thought only one powerhead would be sufficient.  This took me two hours to do...at first i had it going in the back and in the front of the tank...but i said f*** it.  this was easier to do....i keep posting pics of my progress!

    Looking good! What are you going to put in there? Research your loaches welll, some like current more than others.

    Some high current fish.  The current in that ten-gallon will be going every which way...make sure you provide a cave or something where they can escape the movement for a while. That is a really good job of it...are you going to get something bigger and do the same thing, like with a 150 gallon? That's what I want to do.

    i would like to..but i don't think i could ever afford that...and if i could afford a 150 gallon tank i would make a reef tank!

    Heres a good profile for your yoyos-http://www.thetropicaltank.co.uk/Fishindx/pakloach.htm
    When i said they would outgrow the tank I was reading cm(centimeters) instead of inches :-[
    They need caves to sleep/play in and may eventually need a bigger tank.
