    Using Your API Test Kit

    I get a bit frustrated when people buy the api test kit and just wing it rather than reading the instructions.

    Buy your feeders in bulk

    Buying feeders in bulk is like a 20th the price. There is no way I can go back to spending so much on feeders. Pitty I never order from the same place twice
