Shirley, I know, seriously! Biiig pincers . . .

Oh! Sparkyjoe, that sounds similar to what I did when I had CaribSea Moonlight sand. Used a huge drop cloth and rinsed it that way. By the way, unless you need ultra fine sand, don't use that stuff. It's like powder and it'll clog everything in sight.

Sparky, whatcha need? I think between the two of us, Shirley and I could open an aquarium equipment shop.

Well I'm off for the night. Getting some rest. I have water changes to do in 7 tanks tomorrow and a house to clean! Ahh the joy of the common house wife/student/aquarist. I will post a pic of the tank progress tomorrow and maybe you guys can tell me if I should have more sand or not. night night all.

Ha, ha, that would totally be nice. If only. Sigh

I know I have one more betta male I would love to get (really want a marble!), plus I keep dreaming about either a sorority or a rainbow fish/habrosus cory/cherry shrimp tank. But, I'm currently on medical leave, not sure what my future looks like financially, so splurging on tanks is a challenge. I keep finding the perfect tanks on Craigslist but they want almost as much as new, which is nuts. I actually still have hopes that the 12 gallon Eclipse for $25 is gonna work out.

I know, right?!?! I'm seriously thinking about asking my BF what he thinks. I *did* just get my tax return that I haven't touched, but I'm afraid to use it because I don't know what my pay will be over the next few months. Sigh.

You could always try and see if the seller will go down to a hundred. They sound desperate to get rid of the stuff.
