    Next upgrade on the tank, new cover for the top of the tank. Anyone have a really good way of clipping a net to the top of the tank?

    That's odd, sounds like space magic...jumped through glass.
    If that's the case the real question would be which pane of glass the top or just through the side? It's a shorter fall to the floor after all.

    The little ones are always a risk.... No idea how some of them make it out but they do. With glass it would seem even more impossible but they do. Stinks. Its worse if it happens while you're doing maintenance and they jump when your backs turned... Feels like its even more your fault. Sorry

    i think i want more torches. I have one torch and the rest are softies. the torch has been in there longer than the sofies and had survived the pump malfunction!

    any suggestion on which torch to get?

    When I see your tank I see a lot of colors in the orange-red-pink range. A lot of salmon and flesh color. A good compliment for those colors, to make the Torch really stand out, would be in the range of blue to green. Turquoise especially.
