    Back after a six month break!

    Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. After rehabbing my aquascaping injury for the last six months, I'm happy to report I'm ready to come back. Yes, you read that right--aquascaping injury. I completely sliced through a tendon in my thumb when the inflow glass shattered in my hand (lightly gruesome pic attached for your viewing pleasure). All this is to say, be careful (or at least more careful than I was) when cleaning your glassware folks! Looking forward to jumping back in!

    Welcome back!

    Wow, happy that you're ok now. I have always wanted to switch to stainless steel ones but they are expensive!!

    Yeah me too... though I got the Kaiser bill last week. Without insurance the whole surgery would have put me back $73K. Stainless seems a lot more affordable all of a sudden
