Oh, and I moved it to my bathtub. Bathing comes second to beer anyways, right?

you don't need a 1 inch blowoff. I always do 10 gallon batches and I always use 1/2 inch tubing even at warmer fermentation temps. I don't use airlocks anymore. I usually pitch onto a cake and I don't want to be bothered with checking on my fermentor. Leave it alone for two weeks and bottle it, that's my motto. Not much of a motto, but it's mine

That way you ensure no air gets in
Right, never put your blowoff higher than the carboy. When that carboy starts cooling, at the end of fermentation, the suction can suck that entire prego bottle back.

I was waiting for a comment on that. It was last minute. The closet that it was in is now too cold since it's below freezing outside. That closet is in the low 60's right now. It wound up in my clothes closet and those are clothes I don't wear anymore. It seems that it's about time to purge and make a trip to Goodwill!

That is one of the hazards of carboy fermentation. The tapered neck makes for a nozzle which will launch the beer out everywhere like a rocket engine. Buckets have more headroom as well. But no harm no foul. Except the cleanup can put you in a rather foul mood.
