We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

I agree with TCT.
I just started my tank 2 weeks ago and I had mine running. Everyday I had skimmate and it gets darker and darker in color.
