Today I added 2 Luft pumps to my skimmer which has been working very anemically for quite some time. Luft pumps put out 7lbs of air pressure compared to most pumps which run about 2 Psi. My homemade, 5' skimmer is going nuts and doesn't know what to do with all the skimate. It drains into a five gallon bucket which has an automatic, DIY shut off switch in it so it doesn't overflow and screw up my floor as it did once when 24 local New York urchins decided they all needed to spawn on the same night. I think I had the Miss Universe pageant on the TV but I can't remember.

Just playing with the camera.




A lot of my stuff came from my favorite LFS, Aquarium Village in Westbury. I just got those 2 red sponges there and those 2 long skinny gorgonian looking things. My favorite sales person there, Long Island Andy even guaranteed them for me, he said if they don't live for 10 years he will donate all of his personal livestock to me and change his name to Paul. If you go in there ask for him and ask a lot of stupid, repetitious questions, he loves that. Don't say I told you, make it a surprise.

Yes he did, but it must be hard to pick up a new born brine shrimp with those claws.

If anyone wants a piece of this blue sponge for free, let me know. It has been growing in my tank for many years and it needs a trimming.

It seems quite a few people want a piece of sponge. I guess everyone wants to wash their car.
