Life without

Don't remember what my life was like without my fish tank, that's kinda sounds sad.

Ugh, I would not know what to do without going to sleep, lulled by my hyper-active filter and bubbler...

I was drawn into this thread by the title...then I read through it and forgot what this thread was about LOL! So I had to re-check the title.
So, life without...I would be miserable! My fish have become the center of my universe!!! And far as filters go, I so enjoy the sound of the water pouring into my tank (HOB filter).

You have that backwards. Bases accept protons, acids donate.

Both strong bases and strong acids can conduct electricity.

Back on topic though...

Life without...

water changes
euthanizing fish
dosing ferts....

...would be wonderful!

Haha, that's what I thought it was, but I looked in my old chem notes and what I posted was what I wrote down. I apparently suck at taking notes at 8am. The fact that I'm nearly blind and can't read the PowerPoint doesn't help either.

And I agree, life without water changes would be nice, but its a small price to pay for healthy fish. I can barely remember life before I started keeping fish.

Life without:
Cycling a 55g tending to 2 kids, an ol'man, 2 pit bulls, 1 guinea pig, 1 bunny, 1 turtle, and lastly myself.... Would be uber boring
I'm a busy lady!
Ha! And maintaining a clean house on top of it!

My life would be a little more hectic. I find it peaceful. I have a lazy chair by the aquariums where the family and I tend to dose off while watching.
Good stuff
