    What maintenance is needed on a T-Maxx?

I was around 12 or so, I never got into the hobby a lot and about 6 years ago I was running it and forgot to put the air filter back in after cleaning it. Need less to say after a few minutes of running it shut off and never...

    No to low maintenance aquarium?

    This is a question for all the aquarium guys we have here - what is a good no or low maintenance aquarium setup? Would I be better to go salt or freshwater? I'd like to keep it under 50 gallons.

    Did some maintenance

    I got my 5sc in October of 2011. After running two tanks I read online that the rear diff could be low from the factory. I then took out the rear diff and topped it off. Fast forward to this offseason, I had put a total of 10 tanks on my 5sc. It was time for the big maintenance that it calls...
