The important thing is a nice even level service on something strong enough to take the weight, which could well be a chest of drawers in a bedroom. Certainly you do have to check it will take the weight you want to put on it.
You will probably be OK sleeping with the noise of a quiet filter. One should never switch the filter off for the night and then switch it on again in the morning. And neither can you do that to the heater. The light you do switch off, and then it is a question of either remembering to switch it on in the morning or having a timer switch.
There is nothing unhealthy about sleeping next to a fishtank, if that’s what you are worried about. As long as you keep it clean. The exception is if you keep an octopus as this will wait till you go to sleep and then lift the lid, sneak out and get on your face like that thing out of alien. Just kidding.
My own case
I personally have been sleeping with a tank filter in the room working all night for maybe twenty years or more as indeed I did as a boy. I rarely get disturbed by the filter noise – only if it is lying against something which reverberates. If you have this problem then either use suction pads or adjust the position of the filter vis a vis the hood. This is actually a good argument for avoiding the kind of tank sets where everything is built together. Continue reading “Can I keep my aquarium in my bedroom?”→

The Dawn of a new Decade. Weighing in at 134 kgs these eleven and a half years ago, and this week I think I have about the same weight, but I am in ketosis so I expect to drop a bit soon. Continue reading “HNY 2010”→

I walk a third of the marathon track, with shortcuts, so as to see some of the runners three times over.

Although this video is essentially ephemeral in nature, my weight on a particular day, it does mark two important new things going on in my life in March 2008. It was my first serious weight-loss drive for years and the beginning of a drive for health with which I aimed to take part in the Warsaw Marathon six months down the line from now. You’ll see in due course what happened with that.
At the start of my health drive, which was back in the previous July, I had been 138.6 kgs, just short of 140, and by this time I had already got down to 126.3 at the start of the weightloss challenge on Playradio, and six weeks later I made it down to 124 kg. By September I was at 116 kg and then it started to go back up again, and of course one day I saw I was back only at 140 kg, the one inmportant difference being that I was a lot more physically active, so more of that weight was, proportionately, muscle than it had been in Summer 2007, probably my unhealthiest position ever.
The other thing here is Playradio UK, which was a great hobby while it lasted for me and many other members of the listening community with a number of whom we made good friendships. This weighloss challenge was among those in the community who wanted to lose a few kilos and it was won by Jason’s character with his “guween dwinks”, but who of course has faked the whole thing. But it was a great laugh. Soon you will see the shows all appearing on my channel. Continue reading “Easter Sunday weigh in”→
