Same happened to me when I was shopping for heaters on e-bay. Found the one that I wanted and at a great price. Started looking through the specs and found out it was 220V. They should put it more obvious in the ad.

Will they fit in your toilet tank? That's a free water change every time you flush... and unless you've poured a bunch of chemicals in there lately, not an issue usually.

I cleaned out the filters on both my tanks and there where hundreds of these tiny shrimp looking thing moving in and around the filter. The almost look like super tiny shrimp. My question is: Are they copepods?

I have read that it needs to be cured much longer than that. Have you finished one yet?
