No, I bought eco-complete substrate. It's a black gravel with like minerals or w/e (cant think of the name) for plants (sadly it's quite expensive :/ but it's really the only nice looking black gravel I can find... and it's good for plants!). I did however use the playsand in my 5g tank. I put 7 platy fry and they are all doing just fine in there. :) I think it looks ok, but my mom didn't like it so she made me get the black substrate for my 44g. Anyways, the play sand seems fine to me in the 5g. I have some rotala indica. Not sure if the babies create enough Co2 and waste for it. It's barely grown... but I recovered it from my tank that the algae got out of control on. >_< so ya.

These are the rocks I bought, and here is the light.

Hope it is the right one.... also I hear something move around in the bulb, but it turns on fine. Is it ok?

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
