I always go a little bit over the line, then I knock some out and then I knock out too much. So I thought of putting the corner of a paper towel into the vial to suck up a little extra water and it works perfect now it doesn't take me five minutes to fill a 5ml vial haha

All the fantastic claims made by fish products and equipment companies. So much false and misleading info about their products. Should be criminally liable as is FRAUD!
Reminds me of the old snake oil salesmen. "Cures everything from gout, dropsy, consumption and heart disease" Yeah right!
Sad fact aquarist have to research for hours over and over to avoid the falsehoods and wasting LOTS of money. No consumer protection for aquarists. OS.

Agreed! Heh, not a fish product but I kind of hurt a pet store salesgirl's feelings a little the other day when she was recommending some homeopathic dewormer for my kittens to my boyfriend. I didn't know I was on speaker phone but I essentially called bs on homeopathy and the supposed safety and efficacy of the product line. It's like the melafix and pimafix for fish - doesn't do much and is downright dangerous for some fish. Yet it's sold like it is a miraculous cure all!

Hi Alyxx.
Is it as hot and humid down there as we are here in Ark? We are sweltering here. I loved your post about the crawfish and living in La. OS.

Yes. Yes it is. I'm just happy I was able to get my hair cut again so the humidity isn't making it as much of a puffball anymore. I hate summertime. And yes, crays are food here. Everybody wants to know when I'm cooking them! I say I'm not sure if the species is edible or would taste any good, and they say "let's find out." Although I would be lying if I said I hadn't thought about it once or twice... I wish I had the land to raise some for personal crawfish boils. Those things are delicious!

Oh Yeah. I used to drive between Pensacola and Houston alot on Interstate 10. I loved stopping at some little mom & pop crawfish cafe along the way. Yum! Some had holes in the center of the tables for throwing the heads into.
