I wonder if the popping was coming from the intake or exhaust. Poor resistors may be igniting fuel before the intake valve closes or detonating late after the exhaust opens. No idea to be honest, this is strangeville and I am purely guessing.

Yesterday as I was feeding my fish, of course they get all excited. I am not sure if they are excited because I am feeding them or I am walking around in my shorts. :confused:

But, either way, my long nose butterfly was frantically catching mysis next to my larger copperband who shoved the long nose sideways into my Gyre powerhead that takes up an entire side of the tank and is on full blast.

The poor long nose got stuck to the intake and he is very lucky I was there as I saw him and pulled him off.

He went right back to eating but I lost my last long nose butterfly from that thing so I haven't seen the tank today yet so I hope that fish didn't go back and get stuck again.

If he did, he croaked. I have the thing on the slowest setting but I am not sure that is slow enough.

Today, before I go boating I will devise a grill to keep such fish away so I hope it is not to late.

Didn't you have an old bottle in there at some point. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.
There are about 9 bottles in there someplace. :)

Wow, beautiful Paul. What is the purple fish with the orangish fins in the middle 3/4 of the way up the reef? I love the way it swims
Do you mean one of these?









Looks like a coral beauty angel Rick.

Yesterday I went to a Podiatrist. Contrary to popular opinion they won't care for your sick pods. :oops:

The nurse came in and stuck my feet in a bucket of something that smelled like Prizapro.
I said, I realize my birthday is on Christmas, but you don't have to wash my feet.

So while I was there he took some X Rays of my feet which are old and I wore them out standing up arguing to people about quarantine,
reverse undergravel filters and home made rock.

Nancy Sinatra once said "These boots were made for walking", Just not this long. The guy wants me to take it easy and rest the feet.
He thinks I should, go to therapy and watch reality shows on TV.

That can't happen so I told him to shoot me.

I mean shoot me with cortisone.

He said it probably wouldn't do anything but he said OK anyway.

He said lay back and this may hurt.

I closed my eyes and then after a few seconds of bliss I screamed "JESUS MARY and JOSEPHINE"
What the heck was that?

That shot really hurt.

Then I realized he didn't give it to me yet, he just dropped a home made bowling ball on my foot that he wanted advice on as to if he should put it in his tank or not or if it would change the pH. :oops:
