... an award for clever and ingenius ideas in the aquarium world. Like, umm... lets say... the one I suggested about steam cleaning the algae off your plants by hanging them upside down in the diswasher. I dunno about you all but thats pretty cool to me. And it works too... :19:

Wouldn't work no one can prove they were the first person to come up with the idea.

I personally think the idea is good. who cares if it is totally original. the point is that it is good and no one else brought it up.
P.S. I second the idea

just the first one to bring it up and suggest it to this forum. that in itself, looking at the super achivers here, is good

doesnt sound like a bad idea, why dont you create a poll thread on this treerat? and then if its popular enough, maybe a mod will run it by william.

i think it would work, my only thought is how would it be controlled and where would it go?

Agree with alot of these. This is not a bad idea but one that would be very difficult to regulate fairly, this may lead to more fighting than anything

In my opinion, having a good idea isn't really worth an award. Everyone has good ideas, so that means everyone gets the award. Everyone getting the award takes away the meaning of it.

Post enough good ideas and you get MOTM or perhaps even achivement award ;-)

As for the dish washer idea. I am sorry to say it but I don't think that is a good idea unless you never used the dishwasher. You might end up with chemicals on the rocks that has been left by previous cycles. I bet it usually works out well but there is a real risk even when just steming them.

I cleaned my weeds in hot water only and my fish are happy with the results as much as I am. Being steam cleaned in the dishwasher is a safe way to get heavy algae growth off. If some disagree... then don't do it. I'm just tossing the idea out there and sharing my success with it. Didnt mean to ruffle anyone's feathers.
