I'm glad you're alright!!! The main thing is that you have survived and you're not permanently hurt!

Oh yes, and I have to say ever since the last update, I'm really liking it. I'm very glad that our Mods decided against eliminating Tapatalk on the forum(s), since it really is very convenient to use (especially today, when so many people have smart phones). Although there just isn't any substitute in my mind for posting via my PC. I just find that the limitations of the iPhone 5 based on battery life can't be compared to that of a PC plugged into a permanent power source

Hi, thank you. Yes I am going to salvage it. I pick her up on Saturday brought it over to my mechanic who is letting me leave it there so we can work on her.

The Dark Knight will rise again.

Good point, however I prefer convenience over DC. :-)

Now that you have survived your near incineration, perhaps you can tell us what kind of things are going on with your aquarium!? And I thought you should know that since you recently bought some Amanos, I just bought 20 more for my aquarium. Hopefully these bastards will get to work on what little algae I have and clear things up. I think that would be the total population up to around 28. I'm hoping that's enough for my 90P!

Hahaha... Well for starters I need to do a trim this weekend, my reds are starting to grow outside the tank. Then I also need to buy more Amanos because the 8 I have are not doing much for my algae on my grass.

I do not know what more I can do now. I want the xmas moss to grow in full then do a nice clean even trim. Any suggestions?

Yeah, I just bought 20 more Amanos and hopefully they'll get to work on my mild thread algae issue. As for the moss, there's not much help I can offer you since I've never used it (though I do want to eventually)!
