yep i hear ya on that,i still think about a ciggie,however after 8 years
would be pointless as there is no benefit to them at all anyways
my mum used to put the money she saved in a jar and treat herself,
imagine what you could get...

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Well between my wife and I its about $300 a month. LoL yeah that's a lot of money to be smoking away!
$10 a day so $70 a week. That's $280. There was sometimes I would smoke more then one pack a day so yeah figure $300. That was about what we were spending before we both decided to quit the last time. It didn't get to that much this time as it only lasted about 2 weeks.

Ooooh! WEIRD and kind of creepy! Huh. . . looks like you've tried everything to get rid of it, too. That's a really odd and random reoccurring problem, dude. . . *scratches head* If you've tried different lighting, different fish, different plants, different nutrients. . .and water movement. . .Well I don't know stuff about stuff, but WTH!??

I know some spores can be pretty tenacious. Maybe - do you think? - if you actually BLEACHED a tank, and then rinsed it within inches of it's life and let it dry out again it'd be allright? I don't suppose algae actually has spores, but maybe it can somehow survive the dryness?

OR! OR! You could theme it into the tank! It's kind of neat looking. . .in a floaty spooky creepy kind of way. . . if you plan for it, maybe it could work? Or maybe there's a fish out there that just pines for the stuff, and would gobble it down like some kind of delicacy?

I'm seriously hoping I never see the stuff in my tanks! Cuz' I'd cry. . . for, like, months. For real. *very sad*

But you gotta keep trying! Your tank is so lovely. You NEED MORE!
