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.

thanks! i know the cave looked horribly with all the silicon but i put gravel all over it. im getting a peacock eel and2 german blue rams. i was thinking bout covering the heater but idk how without just piling rocks on top which wouldnt be good. yes its cycled.

i have the same brand as you do as far as heater goes, i hide mine by placing them as close to the bottom as possible then stack things infront of them. jsut dont put things on them or itll trap the heat.

looks great but if that is a stealth heater i would suggest not submerging it all the way.
