My lab went through a chew stage. (and eat random object stage, and a pilfer anything within reach stage) I tell people that ask about him that it takes about 3 years for them to train them to perfection and another year after that to start liking them again. Glock is four now and I can't imagine not having him. I look back to the stunts he pulled and things he destroyed and have NO IDEA how we made it through it all.

To the topic: Great discussion. I was starting to worry cause my 55 is near two windows on either end. I was considering lining the end with foil or something reflective. I'll task my dad with the fans for the top. I'm in the process of getting/modifying a wooden canopy for it right now.

What are you housing in the 55 TX? Some fish are more tropical then others meaning some can withstand higher temp's then other...but judging from the name if you're in TX in the summer w/out A/C I'd def start collecting my 2 liters coke bottles and freeze them with water to add to the tank each day. If the windows have blinds keeping them down (and sowith the tank sheltered) during the time the sun would hit it also helps a LOT.

The name is for the tank itself, I'm not currently there. I'd sooner hack off a limb than live there without AC. Anyplace without it for that matter. I have AC but I worry all the same. It;s live bearers +3 emerald catfish.

Nope, he didn't touch the girlfriends boots. I told her it's prolly cause he couldn't stand the smell.

@TexasTanker I hear ya I'd die in the summer w/out the AC on
Any commonly kept Platy, Molly, Guppy etc will tolerate up to ~82F but I'd still watch it doesn't go past 80's for them was it my tank.


@1077 oh you're so mean
