That's hillarious.
I wonder if I could create something like this that would shoot baking soda at pests underwater. An aptaisia blaster.

Hi Dary. How have you been? What lights are you using? I need all new bulbs but wasn't sure if led would be better and cheaper.

Hey Buffy,..I've been killing lots of flies lately and just having a wonderful time daydreaming about snorkeling with all my fish buddies in Hawaii in another two months or so,..my tank has been doing very well for the most part,..and it's actually starting to look pretty nice and colorful too,...regarding my lights,...about 2 1/2 to three years ago I bought three very pricey stark fixtures using the Cree 3 watt LEDs ,..the fixtures seemingly do a wonderful job growing whatever I toss at them,...I'd strongly suggest switching over to the LEDs if you haven't already done so,.the amount you'd save in a year or two on just replacing your old T5/8 bulbs would pay for the fixtures themselves, both Greg and Doug are the two taotronic fixtures experts and you can read about them on either of their threads,.the best part is that they're rather inexpensive too.
Glad to see you back up and running again !! You go girl !!!

We discussed many times on this tread about the brown deposits left when mixing up " reef crystal" (and a few other mixes ) a couple of weeks ago i started to suspend a normal filter sock into my mixing barrel after adding my salt ... What has happened is that a lot of that brown residue has clung to the sock instead of the barrel itself.., as long as you have a strong powerhead or pump circulating the water sooner or later all the water is going to pass thru or around that sock and it makes for a cleaner container.
Just wash out that sock with your others from your sump as normal and you're ready to go for the next round..... It works for me so maybe its worth a shot for others too.
