Welcome to the forum. I can't wait to hear about your new tank set up. I know the cycling process can be long. I too have just gone through it. Once that is done, it is on to the fun stuff. Hang in there.
I just had to share my laughter. I don't know if any of ya'll are Dean Koontz fans but in a couple of his books he does this ad lib commentary onto what the dog is thinking. And the funniest line is when the dog exclaims "Squirrel Sex! Come smell this master." Kinda OT, but your handle jumped out at me right now and I thought of that hand wanted to share. Welcome again.
