Yep, used a 1/2" forstner bit at all the screw attachment points and glued the plugs in over the screw heads. So it ties in with the style and wood I used for the built-in bookcases/entertainment center, loft railings and trim.That stand is a first class job. Are those pegs or screw caps? If you decide you don't want the stand please deliver it to my house!
Outstanding! Someone once asked me if I ever bred fish and I said, "Sure, mostly by accident!" Way to go.Oh CARP!!!! I filled this new tiny tank with pond water, along with filter media and a few snips of plants from the pond. What better way to kick-start an eco system I thought... But this morning I spied something swimming in there that didn't act like insect larvae. So I got out the magnifying glass and confirmed my swimmer is a goldfish fry, and as I watched it, a SECOND one came into my glass view! Our new tank is already stocked, and I don't want to think about how many are in the pond!
If they keep producing with too many babies surviving, I'll have to catch them and try to rehome them. Years ago there was a mom n' pop pet store that was happy to take them off my hands, but it has since gone out of business. I haven't checked the big name stores yet to see if they will take any (I'm sure they have policies regarding that), and the closest pond supply place told me no. So I imagine I'll have to put them on Craigslist or Facebook, post flyers, etc. Same for my blue velvet shrimp that are currently loaded with eggs! I don't know what it is, I spill a bucket of water around here and stuff breeds in it!What will you do if they keep producing babies, half off me would like my fish to spawn, but the other half is please don't make babies.
