Reefkeeping's next Top Ten for April: "Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Have Just Left It The Way It Was..." Our thanks go out to leeweber85 for suggesting the next topic!

Honorable mention goes to Biowerks of Duluth, MN for this original joke: A puffer swims into his local LFS and asks the eel shopkeep behind the counter to bag up some live rock for him. The eel puts some live rock in a bag and says that it is about 25 lbs. The puffer looks at the bag and says "I dont know man, it looks kinda light, can you weigh this for me?" The eel looks insulted and screams at the puffer "You know that I don't have any scales!"
