OH MAN! That's so not fair! Don't they sell socket converters for stuff like that?!! *bangshead*

I'd adopt you, but I don't know where you OR your fish would sleep! >.<

resealing attempt number three happened today. broke the back of the caulk gun cartridge and said "screw it" and just dug it out and smeared it where it went. hopefully this works, otherwise i'm going to take a break from the annoying thing. grjekl;afjsdkl;.

SO i filled the tank all the way, i think my last resealih job might have done the trick. of course the hose flipped around when i went to turn it on so there's water everywhere, buti haven't seen anything actively dripping out. i will give it more than a week before i set it up anyways, but my fingers are crossed so hard they might break!!

woot!
I hate it when the hose flips round. My apartments hose will suck out water if I turn it off IN water.
So when I came back out the 1st time I was scared when I saw the water level was halfway down, and then realized there wasn't any water on the ground and facepalmed myself.
