Random question.

When I was sitting here staring at my tank, wondering why in earth my wife went shopping for new boots JUST for snow, I thought.... How far to you fill your tanks up! Ya know like to what level? All the way up to the top or do go below the a little so the water coming out of the filter hits the water causing agitation?

See!! Now how random was that?!? lol

Tee Hee, now that I'm condensed I keep all of my tanks filled to the lip of the rim and my cube filled to maximum Kept my 40g puffer tank an inch lower because puff puff broke through the seal.

I keep all my tanks full just so that the water hits the rim line... I'm always afraid they'll overflow or something so I don't like filling them too high, but I can't stand seeing empty tank space.

Haha .. Now you see, I thought your random question was why your wife needed new boots for snow ... As if wives needing ANY new boots needs (at least to them) explaining.

Haha ... Yep ... had to have them AFTER the blizzard .. guess it's for the next snowstorm. Do you wager those magic boots will do the shoveling?

Are you psyched to see that receipt? When my wife goes shopping, I prefer to just pass on looking at those thin pieces of paper.

Let us know if she bought you a new air pump!


I keep mine filled to the bottom of the black rim- just enough so you can't see the water line when you look at the tank.
