  1. I thought it might be fun to create a list of popular aquarium myths that have since been debugged. So I will start "Once GFO is exhausted it starts to leach phosphorous back into the system" False, phosphorous binds to GFO due to ionic charges, once bound, it won't "let go" unless acted upon by another charge.

  2. The cost of the Neptune's flow sensors is really what stops me from installing them. I see flow sensors for a fraction of the price on Ebay, just never got around to trying one. Plus.. they dont make one big enough to handle my return pump flows so... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. That is Lackus quarantinensis... More tangs!! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. This is exactly what I use. They absolutely devour it.
  5. The emergency lane is for getting flat tires....
  6. This is the truth right there. How many retards are texting, or reading forums in stop and go traffic. 90%. They inch forward, never see the bike in front of them..WHAM!! I would take a 70mph runoff into the brush over a 10mph rear end ANY DAY. Motorcycles dont have whiplash protection like cars do. I used to never do it but now I lane split ALL THE TIME. I'm not going nuts or anything, just crusing slowly through traffic, giving people the thumbs up that give me a little more space. The call it filtering for a reason, we are using the narrow spaces that you can't. Plain and simple. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. John has it dialed for sure!! Unfortunately I hate him since he acquired a trident.
  8. I emailed the legislature about that one. My fingers are crossed, but since ODOT is opposed to it... not sure if it is going to make it to a vote. The Rose quarter expansion would help SOOOO much, the people that are getting on I-84 and the City/Center morrison street exits need there own LANE!! I-5 is essentially one lane through the rose quarter. And when it is proposed..people say we should focus on alternative transportation methods.
  9. My tierra del fuego has ridiculous growth. Almost as much as the slimmer. The slimmer growth is off the chain though. Probably 3-4" a month Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. It is really a pleasure to live in a city with an undersized transportation system. Just watched the Broadway signal cycle 5x, I still haven't made it through the intersection. It gives someone time to read updates on tapatalk. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. I want to see the handbook you were writing for your wife.... Loved that thread. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. A couple of thing.... The initial cycle is done.. in terms of having enough bacteria to convert ammonia to nitrate. So your fish are going to be fine. The other thing that is likely going to happen is that the rock that you put in the cooler (assuming no flow) had lots of stuff die on it. That stuff will now likely release ammonia and thus spike nitrate levels. It will take several MONTHS to get de-nitrifying bacteria that convert nitrate to nitrate gas and thereby remove it from the aquarium. This is part of the long long long process of a tank becoming mature and stabilizing. keep doing the water changes, it will help keep the nitrate numbers (and thus to a smaller degree, the algae) at bay. If things get out of hand with the algae then I would suggest doing a couple weeks of using vibrant. Just like other said, don't bother testing PH. Test your phos, alk and nitrate levels. The better test kits you have for those the happy you will be. What I use, redsea pro nitrate, stupid expensive phos meter, and hanna egg alk checker. the hannah alk is priceless if you want to keep SPS. Cheers
  13. I can't say dayum?> come on....
  14. [language filter]... that scoly though. Wow! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
