*suddenly thinking about "Dude Where's My Car" where Ashton Kutcher says, "No, I mean THE WHOLE CAR..." roflmao

I have done a 50% water change on the 29 FW. Tomorrow morning, friends are helping move the extremely heavy 150 glass tank into the house. {{{Getting very nervous}}} Hub misses the 8" shubunkins and comet but I told him they would be much happier outside in the pond garden thingy. Too messy, and I am the one doing the maintenance, so that's that. :P

Got a 25' python.

Briefly considered going salt with the 150, then completely chickened out. Took vote on sand color, black or white. Hub and kid want white. I don't mind it actually, but was sort of wanting black.

i bet that would be the coolest tank if you would have gone salt!! (DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT)

put a marineland LED light on my 44 FOWLR and moved the light from that to the 44 Fresh. cant wait to turn on the moon light tonite to see how that looks in the dark.

put my maroon clown (Moony) back in the 75 tonite.

may get a few more angels tomorrow.

may start to work on the flatback hex re-seal project

I am so scared I am going to mess up with salt, for some reason. Or maybe it is fear of commitment...

Plus, I would have to get a really nice LED lighting system (by "nice" meaning at least $300 and programmable of course) and hub has already been looking at me like...hrm....we already spent $500, and then $150 on the outdoor thingy.

Not an easy sell, but then I can usually find a way to "convince" him we "need" this...

Honestly I felt the same way for a long time. Found a good CL deal and since he sold alot of the stuff to get me started i just went with it. I've found that getting it started is the hardest part. I'm still in the "new tank" time frame, but it is getting easier for me. I've got to mixing the salt just about right (your LFS will even sell you salt water btw), and you just have to keep up with a few extra parameters.

if it wasnt for my love for angelfish and guppies I'd have all saltwater tanks right now

After three months of going back and forth I finally added water to my 55g! Saltwater!


Excited and nervous at the same time so I will be taking my time with my new saltwater tank

Awesome!! It took me 3 months of staring at my 5 gal fluval before I added saltwater! Now its about done cycling and I'll be getting a hermit crab or something small soon. Woot! Do you have a build thread?
