Just bought $36 worth of stuff from Big Al's, wife saw it on the checking account online and did that, "Ugghhhhh" sigh.
Ugghhh Translation: "If you don't stop buying so much fish s**t, I'm going to talk you to death about your spending"
The longer I'm involved in this hobby the more & more I'm convinced that Bio-Type species tanks are the way to go. Plants and fish/inverts live together in nature for a reason. I find the less I try to fight nature the better my tanks look.
