    Yay! I've decided to get an oscar!

    We'll ... He died:''( Water perimeters are perfect, I haven't lost a fish in forever, and I had done a 40% water change too. I just think he might of been too shocked in the move. Every now and then fish just don't make it through the transition. I may get an oscar that's a little more grown.

    TSS is just bacteria to help convert ammonia to nitrates. Put in plants, water, TSS, and fish. Enjoy!

    AquaBid - Post your Dream Fishes!!!!

    I did my first purchase on aquabid a week or so ago, 20-25 red cherry shrimp for 20$! Great deal considering my lfs charges 3.50$ per.
