Hi everyone. Today we lost a good aquarium solider. It wasn’t a fish, invert, or even a plant. It was an aquarium pump. That may seem a little weird that I’m making a post about it but let me explain. This is the pump that has filtered my biocube aquarium (my first ever aquarium) since I got it 4 1/2 years ago and it has never failed me before. In a way without it I probably wouldn’t have all these tanks today as it got me through all the rough times of fishkeeping when I was still learning. I don’t know what happened but I think it simply had enough and was ready to retire. A replacement is on its way, but I’m not throwing this pump away. It’s going to stay next to the biocube for as long as I am fishkeeping. R.I.P biocube pump.
