If I put my Aquaclear 70 from my established tank on the 220, will it speed up the cycling? Or is it too small to make a difference on that big tank?

I am getting impatient. ;)




He's camera shy, but I finally got a decent video. I need to get a lighter background, he blends in too much against the dark backdrop.

I've got two roasts in the oven, starting to smell good. Should be ready just as my wife gets out of bed.

Yeah, she usually works midnight to 8 am. Sometimes 4pm to midnight.

Discus are beautiful. Shame they're so expensive. Can they live with balas long term, or will the active balas stress them out?

Balas aren't aggressive, but they're very active. I think they would bother the discus.

Pete and Repeat were in a boat. Pete fell out. Who was left? LOL, I think your phone is playing tricks on you Bluydgrl.

Well, off the the LFS again this morning. Going to get the stuff I need for my son to set up his big 5.5 Gallon tank. He is excited. He wants water in it NOW, lol.

If they still have the puffers (they had them on hold for me, but I took them off hold yesterday because I thought I was ditching the idea) I may break down today and buy a 10 gallon aquarium kit. :(

Just waiting for my wife to get home from work, and we're out of here. They're going to get sick of seeing us at that store.
