Just thought this would be a neat thread. I'll start it off: got my first tank (matured, and completely set up w/everything) I could use for whatever I wanted from an experienced aquarist-and forgot to ask if copper had ever been used!

ornery but tasty ....who could blame the thorn fish...
and to stoop to a troll, for all you Pacific types, Blue crab is countless orders of magnitude better than Dungeness (or for that matter the ever so silly lobster, whether spiney or Maine)....
cthulhu77 said:Hmm...the worst? When I managed to leave the lid undone on an octo tank because a girl friend had dropped by...a couple of hours later, no octo in the tank...took me a whole day to locate him, somehow he had crawled over the floor, out the front door, down 30 feet of sidewalk (and this is in Phoenix, midday, mind you) and almost to the end of the driveway...perhaps he was going to hail a cab?
still bums me out, even though he was at the end of his lifespan...
