I prefer a dry rub on my BBQ, but that is not a condiment. This would be a close second.

anything is a condiment, if it's secondary/add-on to food!  B)

Goodwill for the win. I had a few options that we're pretty cool there.

Love the container in it's own little stand. Are you going to seal off the spigot or use it for water changes?

Sugar is fine in moderation. Your body needs it to thrive.

 

Sweet baby's is the only pre-packaged bbq sauce I will use.

I am going to stick my airline through and seal if I can. I haven't had time to get this going yet much past this.

Yeah, I don't mind sugar, but HFCS is different from regular sugar and harder for the body to process iirc.

The only issue is in excess and with those who have natural difficultly processing things... or liver issues. HFCS is processed by the liver and if you eat too much of course that has the potential to lead to fatty liver and the issues that accompany that.. however that is a controversial issue in the medical community.

 

In essence it boils down to don't go nuts on any type of sugar. But in moderation HFCS and glucose are both fine. They won't kill you outright.

 

That was a huge topic in my nutrition class. So there's the short and dirty of that convo.

 

Now as somebody who has sugar issues.. I do try to avoid added sugars of any kind. Except reeses. I'm eating all of those. LOL

Well now I have the light:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-E27-LED-Spectrum-Coral-Reef-Plant-Grow-Light-PAR38-PAR30-Fish-Tank-Aquarium/311650696002?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144

 

I need to get some rocks and water going, but I want to put an airline through the spigot and seal it up. I have an idea of corals but not sure how feasible it is.

 

I am thinking of doing encrusting SPS on the sides and then one branching at the top. hopefully the rocks will look like like branches of a tree

Sounds like a neat idea!  If it's 27w, make sure you start it pretty high up (like 2+ feet).

Cool "tank" :D

 

I'm dealing with light issues, definitely start it up very high if it's 27 watts.  Lesson learned for me :)

I'm using 24w. It's about 20" high.

 

Things were not opening at 12". I figured it was the light.

Good to know about light levels. I was wondering what light to get, and even coral compulsion lights were more powerful.
