Sounds good. I've replaced ballasts before on a couple t8 fixtures with no problems, but I can't remember if home depot has any t5's the size the fixture would need. I might give it one more try at fixing it before the meet, but I imagine even if I find a replacement ballast for it, the cost would be not worth it in my mind because I already spent so much on it. Plus I'm broke haha.

On a better note. My brother's graduation present to me is HIS old car. Luckily for me "old" is a '05 mazda 3. Now begins the process of finding a well paying job so I can afford car insurance and all the gas I'm going to be using driving around to all the fish stores I haven't been to yet.

I'll be there if my parents believe that I'm using the car for another trip to home depot. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to beg my girlfriend to take me.

i am trying to decide whether or not to bring the crypt affinis to the meet. i don't want to risk it melting unnecessarily. since i only live a mile from the meet, i can always run home for it if someone new actually shows up. oh and JR, if nobody else new shows, i do believe the blue pearls are gonna be yours.....LOL

hey if its free its for me!! i will take whatever i can get my hands on, im poor cuz im getting married 1-12-13. the soon to be wifey would kill me if i blow money on plants and shrimp when we have a million difrent things to pay for.
so if that crypt is of for grabs i'll give it a good home
the shrimps may get eaten tho, i really wana do a shrimp only tank, but cant justify the expenses to my old lady, and i need to rehome the fish that are in there now. can any one give i think 3 black skirt tets, and i think about a dozen Red Minor Serpae Tetras (Hyphessobrycon callistus) a good home?
hey fishies in philly, r u still living in Far NE (chalfont)?
