We lived in the country - there would not be a could in the sky and he would disappear into the house and hide in the basement. Sure enough within an hour or two a storm would show up. The poor dog was scared to death of thunder.
If I ever get a house or what not, im getting a half wolf/half husky. Most beautiful dogs ive ever seen. Plus I dont want a subserviant dog, I want a companion and friend.

But anyway DK Im going to have to hire you to come and build me an awsome shrimp room like this lol.

Now that DK's mind has calmed down from secretly designing her own Superbowl commercials, back to DKDD.

This DKDD isn't meant to be a tank fixture, but rather a tool to pull out when tank needs a tune-up or has gotten out of hand. It isn't meant to stay in the tank, but rather to be employed as needed, set-it-and-forget-it until the job is done, then remove it and run a cleaning cycle through it and bench it.

She plunked that dude into the pond-scum-tank, fired it up, made a few adjustments, let it run.

B.O.R.I.N.G.

An hour later, not a micron of Duckweed to be found on the surface.

And it was entirely made of stuff she already had. Every single part.

Coo-el.

For review: first pic is starting conditions (this is a bucket of debulk she did, first), a few pics of action, and the surface an hour later.

Whaddya think? She votes it was a smashing success.

Time to start thinking about the DKSnake install, now.

Wow that did a GREAT job with the duckweed. I guess you took those larger pieces of leaves out with your hands first?

Any chance a fish could get sucked in and stuck in the DD until you come to rescue it?

Food for thought about your 1/2 husky 1/2 wolf you want to have...With that kind of a cross breed,,you may want reconsider..The 1/2 husky is a domesticated dog ,,not shy of humans and interacts well ,and the 1/2 wolf is really still wild dog to an extent,but never forgets its instincts along with a prey drive...So in the end you would problably have a cross bred dog that is not shy of humans ,but still retains its prey drive..Not something to leave to chance especially around children..With any dog there is a "High Archy" being played/set,,,you being the human has to be the higher one in the scenerio,,even with domesticated dogs....When you have a cross bred dog (1/2 domestic and 1/2 wolf)Usually the puppy and teenager age dog will be fine,,til it starts getting to adult maturity is when you will know what situation you are dealing with..Everybody's experiences are different..Seen a documentuary about this indentical topic of this actual cross breed..Not a very good scenerio,,both human and animal sacrifice in the end..Give it time,,mother natures instincts always wins...We have all seen these TV shows with these people that keep wild type animals,,they usually end up the same way,,,badly..There are alway exceptions though,,seen this scenerio play out with my brothers cross breed dog and family,,ended up not being a mtach for a longer relationship just for these negative reasons.... Something to think about..Sorry to derail..

i have to agree with jone on that one. ive had a wolf hybrid was crossed with german shepherd. we got him cause owners could not control him killed several cats that got in the yard (huskies are bad about cat catching any way) and in the end we had to put him down cause as he got older he was gettin more and more aggressive even to me. he was prob 3 when put down. yes he was verry pretty but not a good family dog for sure.

sorry i have jumped off topic dk but i just have to share a pic of my moose (shepherd/pit mix) i just love pits to death this is my 4th one





dk your duck weed eater is awsome. wish i could come up with stuff like that. i think you could make alot of money with selling them

To get even more off topic...i too have a shepherd mix. She's not quite beagle size but she's around 30 pounds. By the way, this thread is awesome!
