Then some love to come swim in the flow of the refill water and afterwards, I treat my fish to brine shrimp that they are crazy about! (They prolly wish I changed the water more often!)
I beg your pardon?!? "Big ugly arm?" ha ha just kidding, I know what you are saying. If I were stuck in a smoke filled room and someone sent me out into the fresh air, I would be happy too. I just love seeing my fish happy. Sometimes, I swear they are smiling at me. ha ha
