Yeah I like the trickling sound so I don't top off the freshwater tank between changes. Seems like I have to add a bucket to my salt tank every other day though, even with a glass top. Drives me nuts but at least I don't use RO
water in it. It's not a reef and isn't ever going to be - puffers aren't reef safe and the tank doesn't even have a light at the moment. I'm saving for a light upgrade and haven't bothered replacing the broken fixture in the meantime.
So, did he give up the butter without a fight? He reminded me of my younger cousin - when she was maybe 5 or 6 we caught her sneaking off to the bathroom to drink the cup of garlic butter sauce that comes with papa john's pizza, and she would drink the drawn butter for seafood if no one was watching it.
