Definitely dumped about 2 gallons of dirty water on my carpets last night during a change.... I tripped on my pant leg! HAHA Had to scrub my carpets at like 10 at night.... Not how I planned on spending the rest of my evening! Lol

Thanks! It took about 4-5 of work. Still some things I need to move around and add but overall I'm liking the look so far.

I'm thinking/hoping the water marks will dry or add to the overall effect :-/

Wow keeping aquariums is dangerous!!! I feel so much better knowing I am in good company!

I was packing up some shrimp to mail and as I was pouring them into the bag the plastic flap collapsed when the java moss bumped it and 23 dwarf shrimp splattered onto the kitchen floor. Only one seemed to be too dizzy to make the trip and I hear they all arrived ALIVE by some miracle. Some of them were still in the container wishing they had a little more water.

I bought a new Eheim 50 watt heater to replace the 25 watt Fluval heater that never worked in my 5 gallon (the 50 watt was $13 cheaper then the Eheim 25 watt). Next up, large pwc on the coffee table tank before bed.
