sounds like that person doesnt know how to run a tank and battle/prevent algae problems, etc. or doesnt sound like she cares to learn either. a SW tank isnt even hard work as long as u keep up with basic water changes and stuff. i have timers for lights, food, etc. i spend more time sitting and watching than my 15 minute weekly or biweekly water change.

Actually i find that young people make better aquariust in the long run because in the end they have more exp. and they have much more energy then other older aquariust. No offense to all the older ones. I myself am 17 yrs old. *Aquired moment*:-|

That could be the funniest thing I've read it a long time. Even got all your spelling and grammar right! Congrats. I can't wait for you to enter the workforce and apply your logic. I just wish we were best buds so I could follow along.

I vote for a STICKY on this one.

Etunes, you're my POSTER OF THE WEAK !

Now somebody get me my Metamucil.

I'm 100% sure this will get deleted but I just couldn't resist..

OMG

BTW my friend, here's a paradox to stimulate the mind... 'in the long' must make you an older aquariust thus the younger brood would be writing the same thing about you, even though at this moment in the time line you profess that in the future you will be better. No?

Time travel perhaps? A Star Gate? Worm Hole ? Black Hole? .....

LMAO. Gotta agree with Ahab here. We may be old and apparently lack energy, but we do our research and don't buy bichirs for 20G tanks. ;P

Now, where's my walker so that I can hobble over to do a water change?

I'm too old for even that nonsense anymore. Now I just keep all my tanks in reach of the garden hose, so a water change is just one drain, one fill, even for an 80% change on the 75 gallon. In fact my outside faucet is a little leaky, so I just have to put the end of the hose in the tank, turn on the water long enough to fill the hose (about 3 seconds) and shut it off again to drain, then turn it back on to fill. I do a lot more water changes now than I used to.

The only downside is that it still freaks me out putting chlorinated water directly in the tank. Prime is good stuff though, and I haven't had any problems even with newborn molly fry, day old crayfish and a sensitive catfish.
