periodic maint - CLEAN IT! -

Just a reminder from one newbie to the other newbies on the board.

There's more to aquarium maintenance then just changing the water and filters! Over time crud collects in the plumbing and pumps. When your water flow has noticeably dropped it's time to take everything apart and clean all the crud out.

I just did that, and suddenly I have 3 times the water flow! ( maybe I should have done it sooner! )
