Hey, long time no see. Sorry to hear about your fish- I'm the same way. Many a fish have died at my hands, either from my impatience, or jumping out, or just plain stubborn stupidity of not having the right cover for my filter. I think you have a knack for honesty- I don't think that most people publicize their failures. I have cheap taste in fish anyway.
Your audio system is insane- I don't think I have ever heard music played on equipment of that quality. Ever since I bought studio monitors as computer speakers I have wanted a good vinyl record system. I went back to school, so I probably won't see that in my near future.
Your tanks are lookin good, I'd like to see some updates on your shallow one.
My tank is cycling, I'll send you some pics when it starts looking good- remember I was playing around with mounting the Satellite? I decided to suspend it from a book shelf with fishing line- that turned out to be the cleanest look I could achieve.
