    Hi there.

    I don't know whether or not you have an existing reef tank in which to place your frags. If you have, my apologies for commenting. If not, you may want to get the frags back to the LFS. It could take you a few days to get the SG / temperature right. The reef would the need to cycle prior to adding your frags. Again, apologies if I have missed something along the way in reading the thread.

    Very daft question if I may? I know you said it was from a foot, but... Can you check you don't have water trickling down from the sides around the seal? If so, it's a new seal Jobby. LO's 104 will be useful if this is the case and it's water proof, as they use the same seal I do believe [thumbup1.gif] It's un-usual for they to leak at the feet. The seal ring, quick release and pipe-sets are all commonly leaking, but not usually the feet [023.gif] Would suggest rough handling at some point [thumbdown.gif]

    Looking at the seal I've pulled off it looks to be ok, so if it is the seal hopefully this one will work [thumbup1.gif]

    im up at aberdeen mate sorry if you post a few photos of the inside of the top and of filter closed i might be able to help might sound like stupid quieston but you do have the black seal in between the canister and lid dont you and if so the seal is in the ridge of the lid and not the canister a lot of peaple put the seal around the ridge on canister which causes a leak

    its nothing to do with the top part, its a small hole at the base, (the bottom of the filter)
    as if someone had put it down onto a pin.
    but its all good because im being sent a 104 case so i'll use that with the 205 motor on the top.
