Why you should only set up tank in the summer
Dang! I have the best of intention to set up the 2nd 10g today, even have the plants already.... but boy its hurting try to wash sand outside when its in the 30's....:-? I think the next tank that'll be set up with sand will be set up in the summer time only!!!
Boy is my EVERYTHING cold right now...need some hot coffee here!
Yea, the temp is unusual for us here also, high of 30, feels like 20! AND to top it all off were expecting 6-12" of snow by tomorrow. Not to mention I didnt get a chance to switch off my summer tires on the car, and I have a 15 mile drive home from work.
PS, I rinsed my gravel in the bath tub, not sure that would work with sand though.
Man, I want some decent snow here too! Granted I don't miss the CO blizzards too much but some snow would be NICE :-)
Yea normal gravel I washed in the tub too...but sand...I decided I didn't wanna take my chances clog up the tub, so I went outside....
Now I think I'm gonna do the 10g and the 1.5g (experimental tank) today and just hide out in my "fish-office" lol
Here in Pacific North West, our weather in the winter can create a self wash. Just put the gravel in the bucket and leave it out for one of our many monsoon rains, and voila - instant self cleaning.
yeah I hear ya.
It's a chilly 72ºF right now here in Phoenix. :dunno:
Tell me lol I lived in the Springs for many yrs :-)
I'm doneeeee...well at least with the 2nd 10g set up, somehow it triggered a chain reaction (having ordered too many plants) to rescape the 45g a lil which now winds up changing the OTHER 10g a lil....oh and I still gotta set up the 1.5g experimental....sooo much to do what had I gotten myself into LOL
I am in Philly and it has been snowing since last night. We have about 12 inches so far and it is still coming heavy.
