    Default Hobbs is going rogue'

    0 Not allowed!
    Yesterday was closet cleaning time. And time to get rid of light fixtures that were piling up. Either no longer useful or me or too cheap to buy the bulbs for them.

    In the trash I tossed:

    4......24" stock hood lights (2 of my 55 gallons were purchased as kits)
    1......30" stock hood light (29 gallon was also a kit)
    2......24" aqua lite fixtures for planted tanks (too cheap to buy bulbs for it)
    1......30" aqua lite fixture for planted tanks (same reason)

    probably 8-10 bulbs of all sizes all used but still working

    I have saved and saved this junk that I will never use again and I wanted my closet back!

    My new solution for cheap tank lights for small tanks.

    Clamp on light.......$6.95
    Grow bulb .......... $6.95

    And when those get tossed, I will not have to cry so much about the cost of what just went into the trash!

    Oh, I also threw out about 10 shipping boxes I have been "saving" and guess what I need today and don't have? A shipping box!

    I did spring cleaning like that last year. Got rid of so much extra fish stuff I had and really got rid of a lot of clutter. Then guess what happened, this year I started setting up a few tanks and ended up buying those same parts again

    I ran out of closet space long ago, I have a few huge plastic bins on the balcony that i store stuff in.

    Better than getting stuck with the high dollar lights in order to have a few plants in a small tank.

    That tank looks really nice. I too am a pack rat.
    Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
    2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
    Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
    RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
    It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

    First your tanks, now your closets. What's next... my apartment perhaps?
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    She is on a roll with this cleaning stuff, lol.

    I can full understand not having a ton of room for random hobby stuff, I find myself scratching my head going now where can I put this...all the time.
    This space is intentionally left blank.

    What type of bulbs are those, and where did you get them? I'm interested in doing that in one of my 10 gallons.
