Hey everyone, I have a small 24 gallon nano cube that was the first saltwater reef aquarium I had as a kid. It's been empty for about a year while I worked on the 55 and 125 reefs. Not to mention the two 100 gallon growout tanks I'm trying to finish. Anyway i got it all full of water and the pump isn't wanting to work any more. does anybody have a pump or know of one that would work for it?

Thanks, 801-850-7577. Justin.

Did you try taking it apart and cleaning it. They sometimes seize up if they haven't been used in awhile. If that gets it working I would then soak it in some vinager while its running for a hour or so.

I wasn't hearing Any noise from it, but hey it's worth a shot it wasn't cleaned well when I emptied it last. I'll clean it and see how it goes I'll be back.
Thanks for fast advice! ,

Well that took about five seconds to get working Haha. I guess I forgot the little tricks when I started with bigger tanks. Thanks for your help! It's really cool to have my childhood tank up and running in the same room as my new ones.
