Indeed. Unless you can get ahold of the particular bond strength for your variety, nobody can even guess at whether it's going to be able to hold or not. The alternative is to simply try it. Once...

I've been struggling with temperatures for the last couple of days since my AC died, so I didn't want to get started on the next batch too quickly.

I'm strongly considering starting a nano marine tank that is just macroalgae on live rock and maybe a shrimp or two. As much as I enjoy normal plants and freshwater shrimp, there are some truly...

I'm sorry to hear that they didn't make it; that's awful.

Glad to hear it. I love them; they've been going strong for a couple of years for me now and were breeding well until I had to move. During the move I lost all of my berried shrimp and larvae. ...

No, it looks exactly like a true plant would if it were growing, a paler green extension of the darker green parent. It could be getting sexy on me, I don't know. I'll try to get a picture up...

Congrats on finding a good machine shop, that's always a worthwhile discovery. I was groaning at $25 for drilling a hole through a piece of sheet metal.

I'd get 25 that cost twice as much each but have better coloration. That's assuming you prefer the darker reds. If you like the partially clear shrimp then knock your socks off. :)
