Thanks, Randy. Glad you could join us here.
Good luck on the rock hunt. Hope you made it to the bonsai store in Japantown. That's the place to get your rocks.
Over-filtration is awesome, but I'm getting tired of rescuing shrimp from inside the filter. I really want to show these guys tough love and let them suffer for their mistakes, but I'm the type of person who won't allow people to kill spiders if I'm around (I'll scoop them up in my bare hands and take them outside -- even if they bite me in the process) so my sentimental pseudo-buddhist heart breaks once I walk away from the tank thinking, "You got yourself there; you get yourself out." Twice I've rescued shrimp today after thinking just that.
All the while me being this "compassionate animal lover", I can't bring myself to putting a sponge on the intake because they're ugly.
Sometimes it sucks to be me.
