Well water can be hard or soft, and soft will have less minerals, and hard more. Just test it the same way. The water I get is city well water and needs to be dechlorinated. They dont use chromium.
Thanks.

Ok the thing that Grinds my Gears for today. It's the management at the PetSmart near my house. About a week about I brought a 2nd 2.5 gallon mini bow tank. Got it home, set it up, put in the 15w bulb and kaboom the bulb blew out. A few days later I had the chance to go back to PetSmart to get a replacement bulb but they did not have it in the single pack only 2 pack for 3.29. I said to the staff I will buy the 2 pack if they give it to me for half the price ($1.65). I was told by the staff they would check with management. The manager came over and I explained the situation to him. Rather than selling me the Aqueon 2 pack for 1.65 he decided to give me a bulb from a new Aqueon mini bow kit. One kit already was missing a bulb now he just made it 2 kits without bulbs. I went back today and both kits that were missing bulbs are now on sale for 50% off meaning both kits are now 14.99 originally on sale for $29.99. Now do the math was it better for the store to lose $1.65 or $14.99 ?????

Went to petsmart and bought three new betta's. two crowntail girls and a silver dragon Plakat male and a moss ball. Now to the rant. I saw two fish with SBD a beautiful double tail and a crowntail. The manager looked embarassed when I said something about my silver guy looking so listless. He showed remorse and stared at the ground at least.

Oh funny story. I picked up this bright yellow female and my dad did a drive by snatching of her :D I laughed he said "I don't have one like this, thanks" and walked away. My daddy cracks me up :3 His 55 long is turning slowly into a sorority now. I am slowly converting him :D He has about seven girls.

I am not feeling my greatest this evening and I have to go into work. Nothing worse than suffering through an entire shift. I do not want to call in since I haven't been with this job long enough.

Today at work, some creepy old guy came up to me and offered to take me out to a movie later. I said no. He said he wanted to be my boyfriend. I said no. He then said he wanted to be my future husband.

I'm disturbed. >.>

O.o ...lecher....

If he continues to ask you such forward questions, I would call the police. Unless he was under the influence of something, then I would definitely call the police.

So the flooding last night is supposed to be just part 1. It's supposed to get even worse tonight, hopefully it doesn't though. It's exhilarating to watch it happen since where I live never gets rain (We got 2.6 inches citywide last night, which is basically the usual for the entire year), but it's scary.

There's been one confirmed death from the flooding last night unfortunately.

When it rains in the desert, it flash floods.

And the storm clouds come rolling in. It'll probably start up within an hour or so since the wind is blowing pretty hard.
