    Nice picture, I also suggest what demon said!
    "It happens, and as long as the clowns out there keep paying top dollar, they will stay top dollar. Just a way of life, imagine how much cheaper a Tahoe or Yukon would cost if the word 'bling' was never invented..."

    You calling me stupid?!?!!? haha


    I was blindly picking up a bunch of rubble from my rubble pile to put in a small tupperware container to seed the new tank. It was with just the night LED's and I wasnt looking.

    I got most of them out and my finger is a little swollen.

    Yep I've done it before.

    Sticky tape: apply it to the region gently. It will stick to the bristles protruding from the skin. Then gently pull it off, taking the bristles with it. Repeat a number of times over the entire area to ensure all are removed.
    Vinegar: cover the effected area with vinegar for half an hour. The vinegar will dissolve the bristles as they are calcerous. This technique can be used after using the sticky tape to ensure all have been removed.
