    I love working in a LFS :kana:
    a guy brought back a gps611 cabinet and tank saying it was leaking and wanted a replacement.
    My boss tried to explain that the way he had attached the background was causing water to seep through cappillery action and there was nothing wrong with the tank. He created a fuss :grr: and demanded a replacemnet, so my boss caved and replaced the whole thing.

    I asked him what to do with the returned one and he said knock it out for £80 as there is a bit of water damage to the cabinet. I said I'll have it at that price :D
    My boss has given my new filter media for it too :nod:
    so there you go best perk of my job so far :thumbs:
