I think the object of this game is to hit little white ball into small round hole?

Trying to get home today but was thwarted by a mad man with a rock at Dallas Love Field shutting down the airport for the rest of the day.

All day at the airport only to have my flight canceled 5 hours later. Rebooked for tomorrow AM 1st flight out. Kinda feeling like its Groundhog Day right now......

I'm depressed. Wifey did get home to make pizza dough, so I'm getting happier. To put myself over the top I ordered a SE Int'l Malbec w/skins kit. Paid $122 w/shipping included. I'm much happier now.

Now to work on replacing two flat tires on my tractor, might need to order another kit...

Got two Chinese algae eaters, by the pictures you can see why I might be able to use their services. Have had them get up to 4" in length before, have heard they can reach 6 inches. The only other fish in the tank are 12 neon tetras, three that survived the flukes epidemic 2 years ago. They've been slowly adding to their numbers ever since. Must be doing something right (they must like the RO water).

I don't think they'll help out at all. They help when you start with a clean tank. I would scrape the side first to help out. On the other hand if you're not worried about the aesthetics the fish will be perfectly happy in there.

Yea, I would normally turn off the filters, scrape the sides and get my vortex filter out, but I'm being lazy, and I've seen the neons go and take chunks of algae off the glass sides and munch away and seem to enjoy it. I should probably just clean the front pane for viewing and leave the rest for the fishes.
