    Had a great time at the meeting. R3 and I tried to get to Waves on the way home and ended up sliding backwards down the hill and into oncoming traffic. 2wd Dakota's do not go up icey hills very well. It was a slow drive until we hit the rest area and then R3 was much more pleasant to drive...

    What would be the ideal way of stocking a new tank? My tank has been running for well over two months now with just 10 turbo's and 10+ hermits, as you can tell i'm taking my time as i've read so much about being patient with this hobby as that seems to be the key to a succesful tank. Like...
