Ok .. I got to the heavily planted post ... Alright Convict ... officially this could work and you may even get some $$$ on the side. Now, I'm going to get some Advil.

With the extra 200 dollars your wife can get new summer thunderstorm boots, a new fx-5 and a few new bubblers to drive you crazy with. Somehow convict reminds me of George Jetson handing money over to his gold digging wife haha.... Convict your screwed dude.


One thing I told my wife is dont volunteer me for anything. I get sold out to do computer repairs to her family members cuz I used to work for best buy and staples before i got into the railroad business.


I mean its a nice idea this tank but I would think some water flow would be required. You could always look into somehow scaping a waterfall into this tank which is fed through tubing through a hole in the bottom which goes into a seperate tank which is filtered then through the power of suction fed into the waterfall giving some natural water flow. And don't ask me to draw a picture because it ain't gonna happen! My drawing would look like a 9 month old making spaghetti art in a high chair

I have Diana Walstad's book. Its not light reading and is full of chemistry. I tried it on a 10 gallon but I decided to use a filter until the plants got started. I hate it. The water always looks dirty and never looks as nice as the pictures of Walstad's own actual tanks. SHe even does this stuff in big bowls. Anyway her book is available on Amazon.

Her rich client! I can't believe the money this women has!! I just don't know I'd I wanna get involved. She seems like one of those people that would call and bother me all the time lol.

I really wish my wife said "yeah he has a fish tank and feeds them Burger King, he said he said its good for them, you sure you want him to do your tank?"

Make your wife go with you to the house to do the maintenance work, she probably won't want to then you won't have to worry about it.

Plan two open a new business on the side and do this for all the rich firends.

Plan three, find some one, a company/person who already has this type of business. Maybe there is someone who is completely familiar to this Singapore style /Walstead Method fish tank deal. No extra money for you but no head ache either!!! And a small business person wins!!!

My 37G JEBO tank has a built in filter in the back and when I move it in a week or so I will be be doing a modified, half Bradbury, regular planted designed bottom, with the plants growing out of the top tray, which is located in the back, behind the light on top. Arrowhead, Spiderplant, and several dwarf Anthurium houseplants. Moderately lightly stocked till I see how it works out.

May I just say your life is so interesting..... What will the next adventure hold...!

What's going on here? I thought Aquariums were supposed to be relaxing?

As for the bigger tank vs wife ... sometimes it's better to ask forgiveness than permission. ..........
