I just showed this to Mrs Matt, a mathematician, who has informed me that the glass is in fact full its just half water and half air...

...although, strictly speaking, with it not being a straight up-and-down glass but getting wider towards the top, it's possibly more air than water.  ;)

Nice. I like that.

The other way of looking at it is that the glass is half full if it was in the process of being filled....if the glass was full and a drink has been taken/water has been removed, it is half empty....if in doubt, check your parameters & do a water change.  :P

In my profession the glass is described as being twice as big as it needs to be (ie 100% redundancy)! Though we build in redundancy in case of failure, which would be more like @Littlefish getting "just one more tank"!  ;)

@Helen thanks for making me laugh, what a great way to start "nearly the weekend" (aka Friday).  ;D

Hi Matt,

I guess that there is a link or something that I'm not seeing in your post. What you see above is exactly how your post displays on my PC. Am I missing a trick?

Matt's post was a reply to the "3 glasses" image in Littlefish's post on the previous page  ;)

I thought I'd run a cotton bud along the inside rim of the fishtank, where the hood closes down and sits, as I thought I saw a spec of green. What a surprise I got - a cotton bud wasn't sufficient to cope with what was there, so I used some filter wool in addition. Suffice to say that there was enough algae that it looked like almost a teaspoonful's worth!

Just a reminder to use the community creator and check compatibility.
Nobody likes a pushy tank-mate that invades your personal space.  :rotfl:

I had a day trip to Wharf Aquatics today.
I'd seen it in PFK, reported during a road trip, and as the runner up for Oddball Store of the Year 2018.
The drive took just over 2 hours, and my head is still spinning from the quantity and diversity of stock.
Before the panic starts, I didn't buy anything...though possibly because I was so overwhelmed with choices  :o

Fantastic - you seem to be "on form" (4-hour roundtrips specifically to visit a fish/aquatic shop) although I'm somewhat surprised and at least mildly disappointed that you didn't buy anything.  ;D

I made sure that I left my polystyrene box (for fish transport) at home, which meant that I had a very good, practical reason not to buy any fish, just in case my will power wavered.  ;)
As it was the shop has so much stock that I probably couldn't have made a decision anyway.  :rotfl:

We have been out this afternoon on a trip to the three garden centres very close together. One of them is the garden centre that burned down last year, along with Maidenhead Aquatics.
As we pulled into the car park we could see that the site of the old garden centre is stripped completely; there is a very large new building to one side and in front of that was a new one storey building with Maidenhead Aquatics signs all over it. So I had to go and look.
It's not as big as the old one, but there were 4 ranks of tanks, 2 were empty and 2 had fish in though there were empty tanks even in these two. Mainly bread and butter fish, but hopefully as they restock they'll be getting more unusual fish like they had before.

Since the 4 ranks of tanks formed a U shape, I wonder if they'll all be fresh water. The old MA had a marine section separated from the freshwater section by the plants, baskets of rock and baskets of wood. Though there was something in the middle of the shop that I presume is going to be a pond of some sort. Either that or a hot tub for the staff  ;D

Great to hear that the MA is back after what happened.
I hope it doesn't take long for them to re-stock all of their tanks (and the "hot tub").  :cheers:
