Wink Its tickling in my fingers......

Some of you may know that I took the 45g and one of the 10g down because I needed to do some rearrange here to have a extra room free for a baby

So I'm moving some stuff around today seeing these 2 empty tanks over & over and I'm thinking "Man wouldn't that be fun setting up a new tank again"......I wonder if there's some kinda studies that show its actually beneficial for the baby to have a 45g next to the crib for sleeping

It would knock the socks out of those crib mobiles :)

I would def. set it up.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

That's the beauty of running with no filter... or a sponge on an airstone.

I've got a 75 in my bedroom and its got a Fluval 405 running on it. I thought it was going to be a problem but as it turns out that this Fluval filter is nearly silent.

From a Feng Shui site:
"Fish tanks are generally considered very yang. The bedroom is yin. So the water can disturb rest. If the tank is a closed one then it will not be a big problem."

So Natalie, I would say set up the tank, keep the top covered and your baby will have excellent "Chi".

I have Eheims they're silent unless you push your ear RIGHT ON the filter then you hear a slight humming

lmao yea lol I am having tanks set up here with just about any filter version on it lol thou the sponge is "loud" compared to non or the eheims I found

@aunt kymmie so as long as I keep a lid on so no fish can jump out and no doggie get's no snack then the ying yang is all good in the baby room? Who would have thought fish tanks in bedrm's could be such a deep studied science?????

Natalie, you know me so you probably have already guessed I pay no attention to the "no-nos" of Feng Shui but I have quite a few friends who are ballastic in their following of the laws of Feng Shui. I was keeping a very tall succulent in a pot inside my house that had little spikes on it. I was told to move it outside as it was "throwing" bad energy into the room. Another friend, after looking at my beat up wallet, said I needed a new one because if I wanted to "attract" money you have to invite it from the universe and a nice wallet is needed for this purpose. Another friend told me it was very bad Feng Shui that I kept a litter box in my closet for my cat because the litter box wasn't "covered". My friends, I live in California, what can I say?

I say go for it. What better lullaby than the gentle sound of water? Yin, Yang, whatever, since I moved a tank into my room I've been sleeping better than ever. I bet your baby will do the same!!

LMAO priceless Kym!!! I'd LOVE, no let me rephrase, I'd PAY to see these very people out here in the stix of TN where I live, one of the nicest things folks here would then prop ask is "Did your momma drop you on the head"....I'm not going to note down what else they'd ask you here but you can image

I donno I just go with the Natalie-flow of things "Yup that looks just fine right there" or "Dang I like this new shirt"....

I should test some of that feng shui stuff on my hubby on some topic tonight, he's prop gonna stay all calm and ask politely "Is this another one of these pregnancy hormone matters"
