This soundtrack contains ONLY the original, orchestral music from the film. While it's very nice, I'm really disappointed that the cantes (Flamenco songs) from the film are not included. I made the mistake of assuming they'd be on here....Read more
I ordered this in anticipation of using it with a 2nd Betta tank I was planning on starting. After reading the other reviews, I was a little unsure, but thought I'd give it try in the new tank before I actually introduced my as-of-yet-unpurchased new Betta. I currently use the Hydor MINI HEATER Aquarium Heater 7.5 Watts for Tanks 2-5 gal in my first tank, a 2.5 gallon Aqueon Double Sided Black Mini Bow Desktop Aquarium Kit. The Hydor works very well, but doesn't lay as flat as I'd like. The design of the Zoo Med looked more promising.
Upon receiving it though, I had the idea to use it to heat the aged water that I keep on hand for water changes. The 2 gallon container I use stays at about 68 degrees in my apartment. The Zoo Med raises that up to between 74 and 76 degrees, which is just about perfect since the Hydor keeps the Mini Bow between 76 and 78 degrees.
The Zoo Med takes about 12 hours (sometimes a little quicker if the ambient temp in the apartment is warmer) to bring the water to where I want it, but that's OK for me since this is water that I'm aging. As a utility heater, it works great for my purposes. I'm giving it 4 stars since I've never used it in a live aquarium.
I hate using umbrellas. Walking around Manhattan on a rainy day w/an umbrella just slows you down. Secondly, and more importantly, every time I get an umbrella that I actually like to use, I lose it.
My wife and I were heading to France to visit her family. She told me it would be rainy at the time of year we were going, so I went in search of an umbrella. This looked perfect as it promised room enough for 2, yet was very compact when closed. It fit very nicely in my carry-on luggage. Sure enough, when we got to Paris, it was raining. We had just got off the train from Marseille, still kinda jet-lagged and really hungry. Our hotel didn't offer any room service in the evenings, so I grabbed the umbrella and we went out.
I was really very pleasantly surprised at the coverage the umbrella afforded us, keeping us nice and dry. It's a drag to have to get wet when you're already tired and hungry. The auto close is AWESOME! Never had an umbrella with that before and I have to say it's very cool. Additionally, the mesh cover has two elastic loops that allow you to slip in on like you would a backpack, allowing you to carry the umbrella hands-free when not in use. More coolness.
Of course, I ended up losing it when I got back to NY. But I liked it so much that I'm ordering another one today. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
