    I love my wife

    So I recently upgraded my blood parrot tank in my living room from a 110 to a 125g. Much to my surprise my wife gave me permission to set the 110 up in our bedroom! It has been a long time since I have had an Oscar so I thought they would be perfect. image

    Seachem Purigen

    I currently do not use carbon in my tanks. I do feel like it has more pros than cons and I do like the way it makes your water look. But when it comes down to it i'm too cheap to buy something like that, that I need to replace every month. I am really liking what i'm reading so far about...

    RCS compatible shrimp

    So another shrimp question from me. I have some RCS in my endler tank. I have been trying to figure out if there are any other shrimp I can keep with them. I understand you are supposed to look at the scientific name to make sure there will be no interbreeding. I was thinking about putting...
