24 and Lost were the only shows I watched last season. I'm really tired of all the "Law and Orders" and CSI's.

It's just a type of hair algae. I had some in my tank also from some plants I had added. I just kept removing it each day and it eventually stopped coming back when I added presurized CO2.

Thats what I thought but wasn't sure. I'm trying to find something similiar to connect my 2 DC fans to. This would help me with my goal of having as few wires coming out of the hood as possible.
