Thanks, wknracer.

Quick conversion from EI to NPT?

Hi all -

Haven't been around much, longstanding blown back has pretty much ended any intensive aquakeeping (see former thread, etc.).

That makes sense, Tex - of course, the stems will simply rot back...I blame the meds...:hihi:

Hi all -

Been away a long time, dealing with life, which includes a crap spinal injury that makes my earlier hopes with aquascaping a tough proposition.
