I feel like I'm listening to a conversation b/w two drunks at a bar: not healthy, lol.

Warped1, how is the "weekend only" scheme of working on the tank treating you? Didn't you say you're only going to work on it with your son on the weekends? That has got to be killing you.

That inline heater is gonna be neat, i've never had one but they seem super cool. Trust us, it is nice having that extra piece of mind that with two heaters, your heat source is diversified and you'll get the benefits mentioned above should something go wrong.

My MTS syndrom has ceased. I've been fortunate and only ever bought my first (5 gal) fish tank. I inhereited the 55 gal acrylic, w/ a 10 gal sump and my 20 gal Tex Cichlid tank. Though well under teh 1"/gal rule, my Tex Cichlid really needs a bigger tank but I don't have anywhere to put it or any money to buy it.

So yeah, I'm holding steady at 3 tanks now, though my 5 gal is not in use. I think I may get rid of it since it's so old but there is some sentimental value there so I dunno.

I should - next weekend when my son comes down - move all his stuff out of the bedroom and tell him we are getting more tanks and it his his fault for waking up my fish addiction after 28 years --- But then again - knowing my son - he would be game for the idea - Peace

As for the every other weekend thing, It has its good side and bad side. The bad side is --- Heck Yes ! -- I get itchy to start it - But I have found that the best things are worth waiting for -- The good side is that I have extra time to silicone the pieces of driftwood he picked out together. We arranged them a hundred different ways until he picked out the one he liked - and naturally the arrangement he picked out defies the laws of gravity and physics - hence the silicon and waterproof screws - by the time he comes down next weekend the wood will be together and he didn't have to witness me cursing like a trucker or fell sorry for me when I realized I siliconed my pants pocket closed (Please don't ask how)
