Uh, so my neighbor got a 4 year old weenie dog fostered, brought in from China.. The thing is thought to be a standard x mini cross... Weighs 10lbs... It's bark sounds like, a mastiff or something. I was SOOO confused when I saw this tiny little thing with such a deep voice.
Also, sweetest weenie dog I ever did meet, so quiet (with people) and just tolerant of everything.
Long-haired dachsunds are cute. A family friend has a few wire-haired minis. He takes them everywhere, even into stores. He got mad when he was kicked out of Home Depot once for taking his dog in. (by the way, he's a big retired cop!)
Fluval makes it up with the replacements. You need to buy replacement cartridges every 3 months. That adds up fast. For me, it would have been like $50 every 3 months. If it's heavily planted, you'd use more C02 and probably have to replace the cartridges even more often. And the system is designed so that no DIY cartridges are compatible, you have to buy Fluval replacements. Other than that, I think it's a good system.
Then there's this MONSTER, super high tech and fancy looking (not minimalist like everything Amano spits out!). The cylinder is 5 lbs! No clue if that's relevant to anything though? Expensive beast but may be a good value in the end. Three 95g bottles cost $40 on this one: Primo CO2 System | Green Leaf Aquariums
Just realized this is getting a little too complicated for coffeehouse chat. x__x
Sakura PM me with a response on what you think of these things. I'm guessing you aren't a huge CO2 expert or anything but your opinion still counts! :D
