    [​IMG][​IMG]I re wrapped the treads of the drain plug in plumbing tap


    Got it tonight gonna fill it up tomorrow morning, did a lot of cleaning it today so it's ready as soon as I get up, then I will come back here and post photos of it full and will then go get sand for it :)

    EDIT: Any one know why a photo taken by my kodak camera would load on CPU 10x as big as it should be

    yep over sized don't know why they are coming through so large when I wasn't even zoomed in, and Thanks I'm really excited, the guy at the farm store said and I quote "you wanna do what with the stock tank:confused:"

    Check what quality setting you have on your camera. My sister has the quality set really high on her camera so I have to "resize" her pictures. I have mine set at a lower quality so I can post them. They look just as good, but don't take up quite so much memory so I can get more pictures on my camera.

    My camera gives a choice of small, large or wide. The default setting was large. Boy were they large. After I changed them to small they are perfect to download.

    Hmmm.... I think a canister filter might be the easiest thing to work with. I never really thought before about how you would filter that stock tank. Looks good!

    Yeah I'm gonna see if I can keep it clean for atleast a few months then look in to a much better filter and heater, but for now if I must I also have another heater to use

    EDIT: hey that's a Hydor theo heater is it true that can go all the way under water

    ... I think we have an outstanding question... Who are the lucky kids that get to live in the pond?

    ROFL that maybe should have been obvious :p

    What were you asking about a heater?

    I was asking if the Hydor Theo heater could be submerged in the water

    Hmmm... Google is telling me that there are different types of that same heater.
    Submersible versions: http://www.marinedepot.com/heaters_hydor_theo-ap.html
    and
    Inline versions:  

    Both of these would be submersible. Typically if it says submersible on the box then you're safe to go ahead with it.

    Okay thanks I was hoping it had somthing to do with being submersible

    Hydor inline heater is not submersible. It is made for use inline with a canister filter (meaning you would cut one of the hoses and install the heater). I'm guessing you have a Hydor Theo submersible. Is there a mark on the heater for a minimum water line?
