Thanks!

It sure is. I didn't actually install it until a couple months ago, and I received the last component to my CO2 system last friday so I'm finally taking advantage of the inline diffuser as well. I've been busy with school so it's been slow going with the aquarium stuff.

The light is an Innovative Marine 8W 10000K.

Hey Everyone from the Waco area!!!

Been on the forum since 2004, but I don't check here often as there is usually not much traffic! But I am glad to see that changing! We only have 1 LFS and Petsmart and Pet Co. There is a LFS in Temple too, but neither one of the LFS's sell many plants. So 90% of the plants I have are from the SnS here.

I have some Limno Aromatica (sp?) in my 55g, but I am still fighting Clado algae, so I do not feel confortable offering any!!! I will be glad to offer some once I finally kill off the clado though!

I too am fixing to start a shrimp tank. The LFS in Temple has a few different types of shrimp. However I saw some kind of white worm looking critters in the tak with them, so until I am able to get a clear pic of them and get a ID of the critters I WILL NOT buy any from them!

I LOVE Crypts of all kind and would LOVE some of the white or marbled kinds!

I also would love to try to get to the Hill country show! I will have to see how much the cost of travel will be, since I am Disabled my funds are VERY LIMITED!!!

GREAT to see the Texas forum getting some posters, and I will be sure to check back every time I log on!

Yall take care and God Bless!!!
Drew
