Well, with my brother's baseball season I haven't been on here in forever, and once summer starts I'll be really busy. So, you may not hear from me as much until the fall. But I'll try to get on here as much as possible.

Have fun setting up that new tank!!

See you later, have fun this summer.

...already started missing you 0morrokh... :'(. I was wondering where you were. I've been on a lot less often too cuz ive been real busy. How is it that I'm more busy in the summer? Oh well. Good luck with the outdoor container pond (I don't know if your still tryin that idea but you inspired me!)

You guys are all so nice! My Grandma is coming Friday so you probably won't hear from me for the next 2 weeks. I'll try to get on whenever I can.

Ebbandflow--my brain finally took over and there is no way I could keep fish outside here in Minnesota (it's below zero in the winter). But I'm still thinking about using a container inside. It would be so much cheaper than a tank. hmmm...

yeah... and you could have soooo many fish (ok... I'm drooling). I think I'm gonna do that too. inside would be much better... less to worry about I think.

Yeah there's no way you could keep fish outside in a temperate climate. I was just dreaming. But inside I think it would be possible. The main issue is figuring out how to rig lights over it. Let me know if you do anything.

You could always chain a normal fixture to the ceiling.

Great idea...so how do you do that? Screw hooks into the ceiling, and hang the light from it by a rope? Would that hold it? Wow, I don't know why I didn't think of that myself...I've even seen pictures of tank setups where they did that somehow. :

Well, I'm sure if you have a somewhat technically/construction orientated relative they'd help. Just screw the hooks into the ceiling and attach the fixture to either rope or chain. If you buy a special fixture (like metal hallides) they sometimes come with a spot to connect just like that. Otherwise you could drill or attach brackets or something to it and attach it that way.
