I was young. Maybe 8? Won a goldfish from a game of chance at the 4H fair. Put it in a glass planter of some type my mom had. Been at it ever since, but got multiple tank syndrome too bad. 3 max.

The 04 series fluvals did have crappy priming gizmos, but I never use that crap anyway. I just fill the hoses with water from a cup. Only have to prime after a complete overhaul anyway.

This is an argument perched on the edge of a razor. There is no good ground on which anyone of us can stand. We all keep animals in cages. It's just a matter of degrees.
