Agreed. Actually, crawfish are one of the few things I will drink miller or bud with. I'm a picky beer drinker; blue moon, Guinness, or some German beers are all I usually drink.

I have a marbled crawfish/crayfish/crawdad, lol. And her zillion babies. I will probably set up a really big breeding tank for them one of these days. They do destroy plants, though. I tried planting it just to see what would happen and they all got eaten.

I didn't do much actual tank maintenance today, but I got my 10 gallon painted for my new betta who should arrive very soon from aquabid. Cbourg, it's the one you gave me! Looks pretty nice, but it will look a lot better tomorrow when I can get some sand and water into it, lol.

Ok, I'm angry. Just got a message from the aquabid seller I ordered the fish from saying he was mistaken and the fish I bought was sold and he doesn't have any other black ones in stock. Back to aquabid, I guess. Maybe I can find another one who will look so nice in a white tank...

Well my eBay fluval 306 came today! It looks to be in great condition, ran 5 gallons through it (using buckets) and no leaks!

It came with all of the media in it, but since I don't know the buyer I'm guessing I should just toss it and buy some new stuff to make sure there aren't any diseases tagging along?

Yeah.. I would probably would do the same. Im glad its all working for you. How much are you now going to have to spwnd on media?

How dirty is the media? How soon do you need to use the filter? You could soak them in white vinegar For a week and then in hot water for another. If theyre really dirty chuck em

The media actually doesn't look very dirty at all. There was what seemed to me some sand grains floating around the canister that I cleaned out, but the sponges and bio rings all look pretty clean, so I definitely don't think it was used very long.

I need to use the filter next week though to start cycling my tank, and it'll cost like $30 for new media.
