Woah! Scott... no one was angry and I didn't see a single flame.
see how you could read that into the replies that were made.
just pointing out that though a pressurized system "seems"
really isn't and is worth the money. No one minds that you want
to use or
enjoy a DIY system. I use both and sure wish I had more
for all the reasons mentioned. I never understand why folks
one-time expense for something really useful is "expensive".
Even if it
costs $500, once you own it, it's yours for many, many years and
you those years of use and enjoyment. As for spouses that attack
expenditures on plant/fish equipment... well... I think they
should be damn
glad their spouse has such a nice, benign hobby... After all you
out playing poker, or shooting pool, or spending money at the
(Not that there is anything wrong with *any* of those things.
Live and let
live, I say.) He/she should be *very happy* that you are home
messing with your tanks.
Olga in Vancouver
with a spouse who "likes" my hobby, and a job that doesn't pay
(but I'd still buy another CO2 system... if only I had room to
set it up.)
Scott may have over stated his position, but aren't you the one
who ask me if I was "joking" about using kitten litter. I have seen
emails here that are rude if not flames.
P.S. My kitty litter tank is doing great. I got a use tank (55 Gal),
lights, filter, CO2 and etc for less than $50. I could have spent $ 500
on it but then I couldn't take my daughter too Disneyland. I will keep
my CO2 DIY, kitty litter and shop lights.
