Dear Mr. Moderator,
Im not begging for freebies as you may think. Im only looking for alternate sollutions to my problem. I dont understand why you sound so angry, but I think it is unwarranted. I do not want freebies, I can and will come up with the money. My current situation does not allow me to spend wildly, and I made the mistake of saving up for and purchasing upgraded light without fully upgrading my CO2 system first.
I apoligize for my mistake, although I do not think an apology on my part is at all warranted. I was taught throughout my life to use my resources. And to alwasy return favors. I do not beg, I do not steal, and I do not swindel. So if your implecations are registering correctly in my mind, your saying that I am, indeed, begging.
I humbly retract my request for help in this matter. However I did not know that this forum was not to be used to find, recieve, and perpetuate help of others.
I, jsut as everyone else here, know full well just how expensive this hobby is. I simple mistake on my part is just that, a simple mistake. I dont see the need to jump down my throat.
Not angry at all! I can't see how you can say I sound "angry" if you can't hear my voice! Guess I should have added a winky smilie or something.
You could have tried me via PM and asked if I was angry.
BTW, you never have to use "Dear Mr. Moderator". I sign all my posts with my name. You can feel free to use it. I don't mind at all. I wish more people would do the same.
You did says several times you can't afford this or that. How am I or anyone else to interpret that?
Listen guys..im broke!!
can anyone help? does anyone have spares they are willing to part with?
keep in mind im broke hahaha
They said they would charge me $85 bucks for what I need!! I cant afford that!!
Now, I am not jumping down your throat. I am certainly not calling you a swindler or a thief. I don't know where that came from.
I guess I forget that the older version of the forum is gone. In that, we had a policy of not asking people for free stuff. We had an epidemic of people asking for free plants and the like which got obnoxious, so at member's request we had a policy against it in place. That has stopped, and so the older policy has gone by the wayside. So I am sorry for that.
Trying to have a high-tech planted aquarium on a low-tech budget is really, really tough. My suggestion of going low tech was an honest one. You are talking about a 10G where a DIY rig would be very do-able. An old juice bottle and some tubing. Very economical and extremely efficient on small aquariums. You could look into backing off on your lighting (running one bulb instead of two)and going with some lower light, slower growing plants until your financial situation improves.
--DC, you do not need to build me that manifold. It was a kind gesture on your part, but i do not want to piss off the people who make this forum possible. Ill suffer and Ill save up for the equipment I need. Thanks anyway though
That is silly! Don't cut off your nose to spite your face. If DC is going to hook you up, then get hooked up!
