I don't want you to get a horrible infection and lose a toe! *hugs Tiki*

However . . . try soaking it in epsom salts. Seriously. That might reduce the swelling enough to try the prybar trick.

Oh Tiki. :( I got my ingrown toenail removed about 2 weeks ago. It's still bad but it does feel better. I can't wait until the infection fully leaves. As Sakura said, soaking it will help. But I would get it checked.

I want to totally redo my 20G too.

uh, how do I use root tabs? Just stick them into the sand? do they have to be directly under the plants, next to them or what?

I am so getting a better light when I get my tax refund.

Tiki, I have no idea about it burning but they don't seem to be in distress so maybe not? Try soaking for a half hour to an hour, or as long as you can stand it.

Bekah, push the root tabs in about every 6 inches. Try to locate them next to roots if you can since plants like crypts and swordplants benefit the most from root tabs. Stem plants get much of their nutrients from the water column but crypts and swordplants get them from their roots.

And no, still no Eva. :( I just checked a few minutes ago and she was waking up and moving. She was back to chewing at something and when I stuck my finger in, smeared with banana, she bit it. I still can't tell if she's stuck or just stubborn. I'm just worried about how long she can go without water if she IS stuck.

Anyway, going to try and get some sleep. Since there is a silver lining to every cloud, at least tonight she won't be chewing or rattling the bars of her cage so it will be quiet.

I don't even qualify for a tax refund.
