    Those are great, Darren. I need to get another one sometime. I have a huge tank full of plants and no fish ... lol I just hate seeing them for sell in stores all stacked on a shelf in those little plastic containers.

    Cheers,

    I agree, I have mine in a small (1gal.) tank in our living room. I use tap water and just add conditioner each time I change the water. What I do is put the fresh water next to it's tank for about an hour so the old and new water will have the same temps.
