*lol* that is why some species eat their young ... sorry could not pass that up.

At least you kid has a brain in his/her head . Also, in a kid way, shows that s/he is taking at least a passing interest in the hobby .

That's awesome.. As a parent of 3 little kiddies (oldest is 4) I can understand where your coming from.

My son loves when the clownfish attacks me whenever I have my hands in the tank. The other day , he made a nice little ladder and was trying to get the clown to attack him.

I also love all the little handprints on the glass. Of course when you ask them if they were touching the glass you get a sincere "NO!"

I'm sure your tank will be fine.. I'm sure your LPS will enjoy the "added" calcium for their stalks.

WELCOME TO AA!

I dont think it will damage the tank but some PWC`s would not hurt.

Ran into one of the engineers at work who used to have a huge salt water set up before his kids came along. The amount shouldn't be a problem with water changes, hopefully. He got a chuckle out of the story too.
