That I haven't seen yet. But my tanks are definitely going down faster. You can tell without even looking at them, just the different sound of the HOBs gives it away.


Check out what Jodie did with our turkey leftovers:





Her first time, turned out PERFECT. That crust is like a tea biscuit. Best pot pie I ever had.

Today I'm boiling the carcass to make soup. (Sorry Jakie, I know you had no leftovers this year)

This thing turned out so well though, I had to give her credit where credit is do. She got the recipe from her work at the crazy house. Now I'm hungry.

Wow, after stalling at around 77, the poll is really on the move right now, up to 81 this morning. I'm wondering if it will make it to 100 voters. (And Bala Sharks went from 10 last night, to 12 this morning, nice. They don't get enough love)

Jodie is SUCH a weirdo. While I was typing this the phone rang, I had left it upstairs where she is sleeping after working all night. I get up there, and she answered it and is doing a bloody survey, on a Saturday morning, after they just woke her up. I never do those bloody things, regardless of circumstances.

With the exception of polling during an election. I'm all over that.
Ottawa gets way more snow then us we get the end of the georgian bay lake effects but ottawa gets more then us we are 1 hour from Toronto

We got the passive 3d I just wanted the smart tv at first but always wanted 3d too when I found out that they had both in one well I had to have one I don't think our living room can handle anything larger then a 55 inch, we have a larger one in our rec room but I never go down there thats the one our kids game on and its just a tv this tv came with a wireless keyboard so I can watch tv and read this forrum lol

That TV sounds awesome. I like the passive. I like the idea of a bunch of cheap glasses in case people come over. I have never even seen a Smart TV, but it sounds wonderful!

At night I have a laptop in my bedroom hooked up to our TV, and it is networked to my tower, which acts as a server for the other 3 computers currently in the house, plus mine, which is hooked up to the projector (my landlord just offered me a free one, so soon we'll have another one in the kitchen, Jodie's idea) so when we're in bed I put some of Charlie's crap on half the TV, and I surf the net on the other half.

Check this out:


I have way too much time on my hands Saturdays and Sundays when Jodie sleeps all day after working until 8am.

I particularly like how you hid the tubing.

Ok, got some pics of the Hillstream Loach on the glass. I have yet to get a good pic from the other side, but this angle will do for now. Kinda creepy looking.







Also, got a couple of decent pics of the small bristlenose in the rainbowfish tank. I love the white on the tip of his tail. That's how I spot him when he's completely on the driftwood.







I can't get a decent photo of the big one in the 220 because he sits in a groove in the huge piece of driftwood and completely blends in. If you look, you can see him with the naked eye, because he is a little more jagged than the wood, but the camera doesn't pick him up at all. He is 100% camouflaged.

If I had hideous colored substrate in the 220 I would get the occasional shot of him. He blends into the black substrate too.

WRT filters, you may want to consider a couple of JBJ 45 ultraviolet canister filters. They have done wonders with my 135 gallon freshwater tank.
