I also wish that cheap inline diffusers had been...

Cool idea. I'm going to file that one away for future use.

First step, remove fauna. The remaining microrasboras should be alright in my high tech 40, and the shrimp are going to a new owner.

Next step, I try a bit different of an approach to planters....

The 30 cube riparium project

A bit of background, I've had a low tech shrimp and micro fish tank running for years now, and I'm bored to tears with it at this point. I'm sure it would have been great for a desk top tank, but...

Where have all the pink bulbs gone?

Hello TPTers, does anyone know where I can find some "pink" bulbs for a 55watt cfl fixture?

I really like UFRaw for processing RAW files. It is designed to integrate with GIMP, so maybe not so useful if you use Picasa. However, I find it to be a really nice program, and it is FREE!
