Had a great trip. Here are some shots of the trip before and after the snow arrived... which came a day later. We had 4in and our flight was delayed. We were suppose to fly and be home by 11:20pm but we didn't get in until 1:45am. yay...
The day before



Yes you are seeing that image correctly... I'm not use to seeing that here in Texas you know?

Later that night it got colder then here in TX. It was 57 when we arrived and dropped to this

Last photo for today. I went to a friends house and they said they went to FL for a vacation... They showed me this guy...

I've never seen a shell quite like it. Any thoughts on what it could be?

It looks like you had a great time. How come there were no pictures of you??
It looks so darn cold in MO. Our temp dropped to 43 last night and I was freezing. Such a wimp...

That shell is very pretty. I've never seen one like it. It looks so perfect it almost looks fake. Sort of resembles the horn of an antelope. So, everyone in your tank was healthy & happy on your arrival home. That's great to come home to...

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I had a wonderful time. it was my first time in real snow since 1989 and if you're from Texas then you know what i mean by real snow.

I don't like taking pictures and i'm the camera man, they aren't normally in the pictures right?

43F that's cool, when i got back to Texas we were at 68F and today was around 76F... I miss the cold. It's actually making me kinda sick being in so much heat.

my tank was very happy and it looks good. The temp will linger around 80F with everything working, which is wonderful to me.

The Shell...i don't know what to say about it. i thought it was a neat find, and it'd be interesting to learn what it belonged to... perhaps i could have it in my tank??? i was thinking a tube worm, but it is clearly a shell.

I've never used one before... here i go.
I don't like the fact that most of the time i'm home i can't really look at the tank because it's night and my moon light i do have is really crappy blue burned out light... so i stopped by Radio shack and got me some LED's... i should have read a bit because i would have realized that they were green... i even took a pic and didn't realize it

So i went a tried to hook it up and yeah with this resistor

and it burned put because i'm a doof and got just the regular type of output wire it turned on, and that's when i realized it was green, and the resistor started to smoke. Unplugged and had to airiate the house because it was starting to smell wreched!
Started over, got some new lights (white this time :o)

same resistors

Soldered them together

Again i have never done this before so that last pic shows the resistors going the opposite direction. Didn't realize it.
So i tried to hook up the first and to no avail. i didn't know what was going on so i could only assume that i put the resistor backward... oops.
Hooked it up again and...
and he said let there be light

So i now have to just finish putting heat-shrinking tubing, which i will post later, and linking them together in a chain to make a LED moon light... i'm excited!
Here's the pic of the burn out, btw

Enjoy!

So i've completed the project "LED by Moon" lol, here's the power supply i used, notice it has the option of intensifying and decreasing the voltage output. I Tied 3 LED's together, at the bottom is a tank shot, but you really can't see anything it's way to dim and my camera is way too cheep...
Anywho here are the shots





I hope someone out there can see it... kinda? Sorry

if you dont mind, break down cost of build?

ive been thinking of doing this for a long while now, just havnt had the chance. i thought about un-wiring night lights from home depot and rewiring them back together ( so they are connected and can be turned on and off ) i also thought about the LED route, but i wasnt sure which way to go. ill still prob. do it eventually but if i do go LED it looks like ill be using more then 3 lol.. but honestly that isnt super bad as you dont want them too bright but i think it wouldnt hurt to have another bulb or two- how does it look in person?
