Yeah, that's a good point. I've come to that conclusion as well. At some point, I might buy a new Audi or BMW and enjoy the car under warranty, but until then I am not going to spend potentially...

Thanks for your input! I realized that Audi in question has a 2.7T engine with two turbos, which is just too big a risk since I have no idea how previous owners drove the car. I also decided that 10k...

German car experts (and wannabe experts), I need your help!

I am in the market for a used car. It's going to be an Audi, BMW, or VW wagon. Something in the $10,000 range. I've been looking at a few 2003/2004 A4 allroads with around 110k miles around $8,000....

I really like the look of the blocks, very simple. Sheet of what? Are we discussing room decoration in general now? Because what's really going to brighten up the room is a set of Kessils...literally...

Yeah, but 200 pounds is still something you can put on pretty normal furniture. I even told my wife, "It's an acrylic tank and only 21 gallons, so it basically weighs nothing." ;) But you're right,...

Unusual stands

Hey all!

I need to find a low stand for a 20x20 tank. It's an acrylic tank and only 12" tall , so it's not going to be very heavy. Some sort of large nightstand would be great, but I haven't seen...

Is it safe to zip-tie power cords together?

I have three power cords (pump, light, heater). It's a temporary setup in the dining room, and all the cords are hanging down next to the tank, which doesn't look nice. Can I safely tie them together...

Beautiful fish, but I prefer them swimming in the water. ;)

Same here. I have a 57g and top off when the spray bar noise gets annoying. That's usually 2-3 gallons every 1-2 weeks, depending on the ambient temperature. It also helps to keep the tank a bit...

I would gladly pay an extra $20 just for not having to set foot into the aquarium section of a Petsmart. Which I never do.

I think you made a great choice. All otos arrive at the store in...

Neither of those are real nano fish. It's true that they are small, but in a 5 gallon, there is nothing for them to do but stand in one spot. If you've seen these kinds of fish in a large tank,...

True, but they're awesome little psychos. I vote for a pea puffer as well. Especially if you have some snails available.

Does the light have blue and cool white LEDs? If so, it's meant to be for saltwater (not that you can grow much with those stock lights) and not ideal for a planted tank. You can get started with it,...

Are you by any chance coming from a reef tank background? Sounds all very reefy to me. ;) I think this can work and work well, but it's not really necessary. If you have good plant growth and keep up...

I'm a linguist. I work in speech recognition and also in language assessment. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have studied what I love and to be able to pay my bills doing what I love.

Great ideas, thank you! I think I'll do both: Build a little dam around the tank and glue/silicone a little cover over the outlet.
