    tango's LED-powered rimless nano

    The back story: I'll be starting my senior year of college this fall and want to have a tank with me at school (I'll be going to grad school too). For my first two years I went to Penn State and was one of the head student volunteers on the 530gal reef tank there so that was enough to keep me...

    Olbermann last night

    Anyone watch Keith's Tea Party rant last night? The way I see it, people can say that they're just a group of people who care about what's best for their country and the people, but hearing some of the stuff that collectively comes out of THEIR mouths makes me wonder why they're taken as...

    some people... (vent)

    During the summer I work as a grounds keeper on a driving range. When I go in in the morning (between 5:30 and 7 depending) I leave the front gate unlocked since not all the people who work in the clubhouse have a gate key, but I put the chain and padlock back through to keep it closed so that...

    be careful

    I think everyone pretty much knows the dangers of zoanthids, but I think a lot of hobbyists overlook basic stuff that we keep in our tanks. So anyways, since I had this past week off I did a lot of work on my tank (mostly re-aquascaping and fragging). I have never worn gloves in the past and it...

    snow in central PA?!

    Really? It's the middle of October and half of the trees are still green, but there's almost 3" of snow on the ground here in State College. Even the squirrels are all "wtf?" -Justin

    DIY cooling loop

    Toying around with this idea: Container of cool water in the basement (either a seperate container or our RO/DI storage) with a coil of tubing inside it, connected to another coil of tubing in the sump. Pump pumps water (in tubing, and does not enter sump or container) between the two loops...

    So dosing a two-part is kind of old so I've been looking in to dosing systems and kalkreactors. The litermeters look great, but are expensive. I've been looking at the PM kalreactor and thought about getting this and an Aqualifter pump to feed the topoff water to the unit. Opinions? I like the...

    There was a list of "bushisms" in my paper yesterday. Thought they were pretty funny (all things Bush actually said): -"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." >Sept, 2000 -"Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning." >Jan, 2000 -"They misunderestimated the...

    bad name = no cake

    Found this article... The parents don't understand what the big deal is and of course a name doesn't mean anything, but if you have a kid named Adolf Hitler one named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, and one named Honszlynn Hinler what do you expect...
