    Re: Fishy Tank

    But the tank is only 2 gallons, we need to figure out approximately how much to use for a 2 gallon tank not for 50 gallons?

    Re: Fishy Tank

    Are you saying that the instructions call for 5ml to treat a 50 gallon tank?

    Re: Fishy Tank

    That is a bit tricky, then. The math is easy enough, multiply by the ratio of the two tank sizes. That's 0.2 ml, which isn't a heck of a lot.

    If there is a test for determining the balance, titrate a drop at a time. That's got to be easier than filling the bathtub, putting in 5mL of solution, and filling your tank from that

    Oops, I guess that my string of pointless posts ends at 2957. It's probably a FORT record, but I was hoping to make 3000.

    I guess that this is the first post of my next record-setting attempt

    I still have pictures on my camera from January that I haven't downloaded. If AT&T gets us our modem or router or whatever it is, I plan on doing that soon. I do have some good ones of the puppies. Just found out that Bogie's sister has cancer. This would be Rosie's daughter and Bogie's litermate. We gave her to a friend. The cancer is in her leg, but they think they can remove the tumor and she should recover. She just turned 10 as well.

    I'm shocked that they don't want to amputate.
