Same here. My daughter brings her cats with her on extended visits, and one of them is a little on the adventurous side. I use 3/6" or 1/4" depending on what's available, and I don't have to worry...

Both very good points. If it was just the white clouds, a pathogen was introduced at some point and got to the WC's at a weak point. The black moor also leans toward cooler water. White clouds can...

The diatoms weren't an issue at all. When I scrape the glass, my angelfish wait in line for the curls that come off the blade.

The sponge is a possibility. Consider that they aren't packed dry....

Actually the "seller" should be offering to pay the person who removes it.

If the bottom "cracked" it wasn't tempered and most likely was either replaced or custom built.
