Talking Fish?

What's up guys and gals,

So the other day I found myself talking to my fish, again.  Does anyone ever talk to their fish?  I think my most common is, "Good morning, fishies".  Thought this would be pretty funny to see what people say.  Also, what kinds of personalities have you noticed with your fish and how did they get that way?  (i.e.…

LED for planted tanks

http://www.ajmreefled.com/#!products/cngp

I've finally found a decently priced cree led fixture that is strong enough for planted tanks AND reef tanks.  I cant wait to buy the Cree 120 watt.  Also since i know which bin they are using on this fixture i could buy the LEDs myself and replace as needed (although cree leds last quite a long time)

Happy buying

ps if you buy one do a review…

Is there a point when an aquarium is complete?

I was wandering if anyone has had a tank that they just leave alone because everything is perfect and balanced. I set up my first tropical aquarium 7 months ago and basically have been improving everything since. I have a 5 gallon which is great because I only have to trim it and stuff but my other tank is 15 gallons (this is the one i got 7 months ago) and set it up with no experience so when I set up my 5 gallon a few months later I got it what I thought was just right. Over the past two…

getting rid of spammers that make absolutely no sense?

hey hey everybody, 

just thought that maybe if i create a whole new blog post it could catch the webmaster (or whatevers) attention and hopefully get rid of some of these cool bots talking about belts and brand-new hardness.....my fish dont wear belts and i only like them hard when their spawning, so we dont really need the random huge group of words that are your posts. 

thanks ya'll.
