When you are walking around the kitchen with a handful of chips and your dog following you eating everything you drop on the ground. Then a few drop and slide under the cabinant where the dog cant reach and your first thought is "oh no, if nobody eats that there will be ammonia build up."

Yesterday, instead of asking how long a friend had been pregnant, I asked how long she had been gravid.

I just changed out the filter cartilage because I have HOB filters exept for one. So I wasn't suppose to do this? :O I kinda was typing fast so it didn't make sense but I was just suppose to rinse it off??

Yes, rinsing it off in old tank water is what you have to do

When you clean out a filter, you're supposed to rinse everything in tank water so you don't kill your beneficial bacteria and put tour tank in a cycle
