After reading what happened to the frag tank {if it's not a April Fool's joke. Dwayne is good for that I hear} not sure if anyone would be interested in this article that someone posted on my Disney site.


Here's the link incase someone wants to read about it.....

After reading more of the lost frag tank thread, that even though it's Aprils Fool's day that it's no joke. Just unfortunate that it happened on this day.

Things happen! It's no ones fault!

On a related note... CO2 emmisions and buildup in the atmosphere is increasing the CO2 concentration in sea water, and as you (should) know, CO2 in water acts as a mild acid and is slowly altering the pH of the ocean... also threatening coral life...
