  1. 6 years.
  2. Very nice! I especially like the white guy.
  3. Wickedly awesome!! Thanks for sharing!
  4. I love those plants! My mom used to have those when we were growing up. What she would do when she trimmed her plant was to place the cut branches (she called them slips) in a vase of water. With time, they would start to grow and develop their own root system. Once the roots were grown, she would plant them in another pot, and voila, new goldfish plant!! This system actually works with lots of different types of plants. I, unfortunately, did not aquire her green thumb; all of the slips she gave me died before I ever got to pot them.
  5. Haha you bet!! Can't remember who at GFU made it for me though, but I do remember that they were really great at it. It wasnt you, by chance, was it??
  6. Pretty! Mind if I ask you where you bought your palm tree ornament?? I am obsessed with palm tree stuff. I think it's just awesome!!
  7. It's the one room in our entire house that is really fun. The rest of the house's decor is what I might call "proper and sophisticated" and nichnack free. Probably why hubby puts up with it.
  8. Ed! Good to see you again! Welcome back.
  9. Welcome to my bathroom.
  10. Good??.. Perfect angel... ...most of the time... (haha) Please forgive me for not being online as much as I would like. I still love yous all. Between work and college correspondence courses, I dont seem to have time for anything anymore. Ontop of that, we seem to be up to our ears in renovations every spare moment. But pretty sure, or so I keep hearing, that is always the way with owning your own home... (We are trying to finish the basement to make a fourth bedroom so we can start trying for another baby in a year or so. ) I still pop in though and read, even if I don't post as often as I used to.
  11. 5 Years tomorrow! May I please have my medal added to my profile?? Thanks!
  12. Hehehe. We will put it this way, *I* would not make one, but I am more than happy to sit back and have hubby make one for me.
  13. Think of it as a giant extension of a HOB filter. But instead, it sits below the tank. One piece of plumbing tube empties into the tank that sits below the display tank, and a submersible pump (similar to what you find in a pond), pumps water back up to your display tank. Its identical theory to a HOB filter. The difference is that a HOB filter spills the clean water into the tank. A sump actually pumps it through a tube to get back up into your display tube. He was adding the water to the sump so as not to disturb the sand bed. You will find it is much cheaper than a couple of large canister filters. There are lots and lots of articles and videos on the internet to help too!
