So I came home today to visit for the weekend. I went into my room to check on my aquarium, plants fish, etc. My dad asked me why my filter wasn't running like it used to (Why he didn't call me.....I have no clue). I decided to look and noticed that no water was coming out of it. I thought it was off but I could definitely hear it running, so I immediately opened my cabinet and unplugged it. I opened it up and there was black crap all over it(like motor oil). It also smelled burnt. Turns out my filter floss got clogged up and due to my family's lack of maintenance/care about my aquarium, was cutting off water flow to my aquarium. I had to clean the whole thing up, but i'm not sure if I should use it. I'm gonna buy new pads, etc. tomorrow because I dont trust putting those ones that had the motor oil crap on them. Should I even attempt to salvage my filter, becausae i'm not sure if the motor has burned out or is okay, or just guilt trip my parents into buying me a new one? It was a Filstar XP2. Anyone know what might be wrong with it?
