Nah, they aren't all beanie babies. My grandma used to give me little stuffed animals. I'm just too lazy to take them down.. That's my next big task though, take down and pack all the stuffed animals I have... haha.

Hey, that's not exactly a bad thing. My grandmother used to give me beanie babies when they were the rage. Between my sister and I we've got about 200, and from what I can tell they average $5 a piece if you can find a buyer.

Could be worse hehe.

Yeah, I'm not getting rid of them! Most of them have some meaning like a place we went to or something of that nature..


I got an update from Catalina, they have shipped the powerhouse of this tank. (the light)
It will arrive Monday, and Monday night I'll be mounting the light in the canopy! Then it's time to locate some DHG... well steal it from a good bud of mine.


*** Helps to spell a store name correctly... >.>

Thanks Be even better it it had 75G of water, plants and fish in it :P

I've always wanted to do something like that. Thing is. You'd need an attic or a second floor where you could make access holes...PITA to be quite honest...

Well, I just paid my dad back for the light and it put a hit on my money. Gotta start saving up for the plants/fish!

Thanks, it's not done yet as we have to add the doors and the trim around the top of the stand, but after that... it's done.


I think I'm going to have the filter run on its own without a reactor or anything attached. I'm thinking that I will have a separate pump to power the heater and co2 reactor. With the heater coming first so there's no chance of it being air-locked. Heater is going to be a 300W Hydor Inline.

UPDATE: GOOD GOD THAT LIGHT IS BRIGHT!!! I'm pleased with the build quality, I thought they were supposed to have Advanced Ballasts in them.

I recently ordered the Catalina 4X54W retro and it FINALLY got here after more then 2 weeks. Let everything warm up to room temp, then fired it up. First thing I get? A NASTY shock because I think I put my hand on the back of the switch.

Aside from that I'm mounting it in the canopy as we speak and then I'll place it up onto the tank later with some first pics of a 2/3 filled tank...I may call him about the electric shock I got, but it may just be me being stupid.

Strangely enough, when i turned mine on for the first time, i was shocked a little when i touched the metal. Haven't had any similar issues since then.

fishykid - send me a PM when you are ready for plants. Being also from NC shipping should be quick.
