Recommended Posts

Here's how the game works. I give you a list of 10 common aquarium denizens and supplies. And you tell us how many of each you have in your tank for every gallon of system volume. Start of by telling us how large your tank is

 

The List:

 

1) Snails

2) Hermit Crabs

3) Lbs of Liverock

4) Full Ammonia tester bottles

5) Inches of Fish

6) Number of Fish

7) Starfish

8) Gallons of RO Water on hand

9) Number of Coral colonies

10) $'s left in your children's college fund (optional :D )

Haha I agree with you Hectic. The bristleworms, tubeworms, and many dozens little brittle stars is all I keep. And the hundreds of baby snails... Stupid things can't keep their slime to themselves

2) Hermit Crabs - 5-10

3) Lbs of Liverock - 38lbs

4) Full Ammonia tester bottles - 2 bottles

5) Inches of Fish - 7inches

6) Number of Fish - 5 fish (false clown, clarkii clown, hi finned goby, six line wrasse, bi color blenny)

10)Kids college fund - I live in GA so as long as they keep a B average in high school and a 3.0 in college then they get 90% of tuition paid at a public GA University. If the kid gets a high enough SAT and keeps a higher GPA then is a 100% ride

 

My kids will have to keep the grades up or they will get to take out loans. The kids are young now so I dont have to worry about it yet
