Hi Kev I noticed you recommend a gravel for marine. Is it anything like aragonite? Aragonite is made of crush coral but is digested coral skeleton instead of actual crushed coral. It's buffering capacity is at 8.0 (crushed coral is at 7.8)and is recommended for fish and other animals that burrow or dig. Nice and soft. Live sand is also aragonite.

Doesn't gravel contain too much silicates and can cause excessive algae breakouts?

It is sort of like Aragonite, but obviously larger due to it being gravel. The only algae trouble I had was the initial diatom bloom, that was a pain in the a$$.

LOL...diatoms aren't that bad. Just sightly. They are actually very interesting critters. They are populated all over the world. There are even diatom species that live in the intestines of insects. They play an important role on the Earth in providing oxygen and provide more than the rain forests do. Did you know that if the ocean's temp were to rise dramatically even by a few degrees it would kill the diatoms in the oceans and we would sufficate? Scary, huh?

:blink: The ocean is pretty stable anyway, millions and millions of gallons of water isn't going to change temperature that much, it is quite constant. The chances of that happening are quite slim ^_^ :D

True, but hopefully people start cleaning their act up. America just got the first cars powered by the hydrogen fuel cell working, so we, as humans, are taking actions to try and avoid these problems. But i totally agree, global warming is a bi**h

New Movie cartoon 2018 ''Minions''

หนังใหม่ Minions is a 2015 American 3D computer-animated comedy film, serving as a spin-off/prequel to the Despicable Me franchise. Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures, it was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, written by Brian Lynch, and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.The film stars the voices of Coffin (as the Minions, including: Kevin, Stuart, and Bob), Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, and Jennifer Saunders, with the narration provided by Geoffrey Rush. It was first foreshadowed in the end credits of Despicable Me 2 (2013), where Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, three of the Minions, are seen auditioning for the film

Minions had its premiere on June 11, 2015, in Leicester Square, London, and went into general release in the United States on July 10, 2015.Critical response was mixed: some critics praised the comedic aspects of the film and the vocal performances of Bullock and Hamm,while also felt that the title characters were not able to carry the film on their own, and that the villains were flatly characterized. The film has grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide (outgrossing each of the Despicable Me films), making it the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2015, the fourteenth-highest-grossing film of all time, the second-highest-grossing animated film and the highest-grossing non-Disney animated film.A sequel is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2020.
