    My dislike of traffic has subsided ... I now appreciate the taxis and people who use the left emergency lane.

    1) For the taxi it is simple, if they did not provided such a well used service - just imagine the amount of cars on the road if the 21 people in that taxis all had a car and commuted 1 person per car with you on the same stretch of road. With this in my heart I now let them in when they need to cross lanes or want to jump the red light to cut in and then stop dead on the other side of the traffic light. It is infinitely more convenient to wait behind the taxi while the load is shuffled and 1 person gets out and 2 climb in than having to be behind 22 other cars.

    2) The emergency lane cruisers ... I prefer that these class A pratt's stick to the same lane going in the same direction and getting off the road ASAP. The alternative is what ... they live among us taking every gap, hopping form lane to lane not using the indicators ( that by some stroke of luck always works when they are in the emergency lane), nah they are all going to the same destination or a version of it http://listverse.com/2014/02/20/10-visions-of-hell-that-will-scare-the-crap-out-of-you/ and I am OK with it.

    Actually if you practically want to all but remove road rage, then cellphones should disconnect form the tower if they move faster than walking speed. The technology exist, but I doubt it will see support form the operators.

    Pretty close to breeding my tetras !(intentionally this time)

    I can't wait, I have a way to culture infusoria and a tank to raise them in. I'm excited to get my selected 2 females gravid :D

    Mine spawned in moss. They just seem to do it on their own, actually did it in their other tank but ate the eggs. Trigger seems to be lights going on around them and such, like the rising sun sorta thing.

    My artificial spawning setup consists of a 20 litre tank with 2 spawning mops, a large bunch of moss, subdued lighting and a sponge filter. I seperated 2 females (plumper fish) and have been feeding them freeze dried tubifex worms for the past few days. When I have a day at home I'll move 2 males amd watch intently then remove all the adults after spawning. Once fry are hatched and free swimming will feed them infusoria and then powdered foods eventually

    Will post infosuria recipe soon, hope this helps :)

    How do you totaly get rid of them from a tank?

    I don't mind snails, the numbers is the problem. Easy way to lower the numbers is with a piece of lettuce or cucumber in the tank for a night. Just remove the veggies with all the snails attached. I don't like killing them, will see if the wild birds eat them.

    I grab all the babies off of the glass and move them into the small tank. Easy and done

    Don't think you will ever get all of them out of a tank that way, or does it work?
