Haha, I said in the post it will be a weekly, bi-weekly thing. Once I get my light and the algae in my tanks goes away (should be next week) I will get my tank journals up.

Following!

I agree that it was cool reading your story. I wish I could have posted something like that, but my parents would not let me. (Internet safety, you know!)

What is weird is that we are not to different from each other. Same age. Same "school". Have siblings. Low income families (my dad is a teacher (and pastor) as well!). And we both have blogs about fish and plants.

Make sure to add a link to your signature!

As far as internet safety, I did not post where I lived, as far as I am concerned, if people can't find you, you're good.

I do not know what to say about that... I will just ignore it.

Good post on the RCS! What light fixture are you getting? The Odyssea?

Ah, cool. I knew that you where looking at the Odyssea fixture, but wasn't sure if you took the plunge.

Haha, I didn't. I found out that it comes with marine lights, not plant lights, so in the end, to replace the bulbs, it would cost the same as a current USA or maybe even a fishneedit.

No it does not equal awesomeness.

Caton + blog about waffle eating kittens = Awesomeness.

Until I see such, there is no awesomeness, and it should not even be implied.
