NFC: Check those powerheads!

Just a reminder for something that too often isn't a part of regular tank

When you feed your fish tonight, check every powerhead.  Unscrew the top off
and check and see if detritus is building up on the filter screen that
protects the impeller from stray gravel bits and such.  It clogs up over
time and will diminish the output of your powerhead considerably.  Can you
tell I just cleaned out an Aquaclear 802?   Now I have a very happy tank of
native NC fish, dancing about in the current that reminds them of home.
