Added a powerhead to the tank

If you read my previous post you'll know why I did this. Let me tell you, it was well worth it.

There is a nice circular current happening in my tank now, and the fish LOVE it (except for my cranky gourami). I added an Aquaclear 402 Powerhead and all I have to say is "wow". That beast moves a LOT of water. The Siamese algae eaters keep riding the current, so funny to watch.

The Harlequins were a bit disoriented with the current, but now the whole school is moving around the tank enjoying the eddies.

I bought a better gravel vac/siphon today too, the last one was looking pretty sad.
