    That's really cool Larry. I visited the sugar bush in public school, some preserved Village where the doorways were short (when ppl were short lol). I agree it's so sweet, but there's something about it I just love. Perhaps it reminds me of my grandmother's place.

    They were shipped from Germany and came packed nicely. Not that bad of a price for 100 leaves. I keep the rest in the freezer as per Matt's recommendation.

    I just use the maple leaves in my yard for other leaves.

    I will say I only use leaves in the filter now since vacuuming is so important to me.
    Thanks Kat, that is a very nice vendor. Will be getting my leaves from him in the future.

    As I was looking for info on leaf litter i came across two interesting tables. I have to say I forget where I got them from, research is hard when you are supposed to be working, lol

    LOL, I just saw the images actually have who did the research, silly me! Courtesy of Istvan Toma from Akvarium Magazine as talked about here:

    https://www.practicalfishkeeping.co....ree-tank-decor

    Thought I would share them for those who aren't able to or don't have tie to go to the link.:

    My father used to pour the stuff over his sugar smacks in the morning for breakfast and sweeten his coffee with it. And of course my Mother used to cook with it. Maple syrup and orange juice are the secret ingredients to a really good home made apple pie.

    Kat, whatdamean when people were short, some of us still are.

    Thanks Nat! That table is very helpful Another good bookmark article!

    @Taurus These doorways were like my height when I was 8 haha. The Village was called Upper Canada Village, I remember now.

    No, they were huge! I posted pics of the package in one of my journals.

    Lol, looks like I got them off Amazon, but i'm pretty sure it's the same seller from Germany.
