is the reservior plastic or glass?? it look damn nice!! leak proof!!! nice job!!
actually the wire is coming throught a hole i put on the side bye the little hinge that holds the top on, and i did silicone it in.. i cut the cord and resoldered it...Shadow ÒÓ (May 18, 2001 09:59 p.m.):
maybe you should consider drilling a small hole in the top and run the electrical wire through it. Seal it back up with clear silacone. I'm guessing that's where your leak is? Besides that, I don't think you want to put that kind of pressure on the frail straded wire via the seal.
i got it at walmart in the houseware section, i think where the plastic stuff is... its like 3.95, but if anyone wants one made lemme know i can make em with whatever pump you want...for cheaplightning (May 19, 2001 03:13 a.m.):

It looks cool, bot the resovoire is kunda large which might inhibit it fitting in some cases..

It looks cool, bot the resovoire is kunda large which might inhibit it fitting in some cases. Ditch the Rio pumps and go with Maxijet. A well respected aquarium shop sol both Rio and Maxijet. I compared them and the Maxijet was better built and looked more heavy duty, but was the same size. The sales people also said Maxijets lasted three times as long. You might give them a try.
