    Hi I have a question

    If you get an hour lunch break you could eat for 15-20 minutes and then walk the rest.

    Dollar a Gallon is Coming! YAAY!

    Went yesterday. The store was fully stocked but there weren't any people buying tanks. I picked up a 10 gallon so I can finally set up a quarantine/hospital tank.

    Dollar a Gallon is Coming! YAAY!

    Petco is doing their dollar per gallon sale again. It runs Dec 27-Jan 23. You need a Pals Reward card. It is on 10, 20, 20 long, 29, 40, and 55 gallon Aqueon open glass tanks. Looks like I'll finally be picking up my quarantine tank.

    10 Gallon Shrimp Tank

    That last post I did has a photo near the bottom, which shows the back of the HM Digital TDS-EZ TDS meter packaging. There is a section covering calibration. That section also contains a link to more detailed calibration information from the manufacturer. There is no mention of needing to...

    Thank you for sharing this. Received my first ones and wondered what the black spigot on top was for. Now I know.

    Only One Serpae Tetra Left. Now what?

    Cories are a blast. Instead of a SAE or CAE have you considered Otocinclus? They do best in shoals of 3+ but they're simply adorable. They enjoy driftwood and they will eat algae from your glass. They also enjoy the fresh veggie from time to time. Some people drop in zucchini slices or...

    New to Cherry Shrimp - Advice Needed

    I used Eco-Complete and Flourite in my 25 gallon planted. Think I still have an unopened bag of one of those. It may be the Flourite Dark.

    New to Cherry Shrimp - Advice Needed

    That I didn't know. I believe my wife's MiniBow 5 has the stock light in it. There's some Java Moss in my 25 gallon planted for her tank when it gets set up. I bought it from Peabody's Paradise. Am hoping to get her something like Anubias Nana to go in there as well. I have extra Java Fern...

    New to Cherry Shrimp - Advice Needed

    One thing I should've asked but forgot to was about the substrate. What type of substrate should be used for red cherry shrimp? Some of the Youtube videos I've seen say an active substrate like ADA Amazonia needs to be used. And some of the videos talk about using dry additives below the...

    Beginner CO2 (Injected...I think) help needed please

    I'm understanding that the Fluval setups, or something like them, will have an ongoing cost for the replacement CO2 tanks and long term will end up costing more because of the CO2. Can't figure out if a Fluval setup, or something similar, would meet my other needs of being: Beginner friendly...

    Beginner CO2 (Injected...I think) help needed please

    Appreciate your thoughts on this. I may have forgotten to include this in my posting but I won't be doing any DIY CO2 setup. Sorry if I forgot to mention that.

    Neon Tetras dissapearing/ Bacterial Infection?

    I don't have anything useful to say regarding potential disease but I noticed you say there is a Koi Angelfish in the tank with the Neon Tetras. Angelfish will eat ANYTHING that can fit in its mouth. I have Cardinal Tetras, which get bigger than Neons. At one point I wanted to get Angels for...

    Assorted Malaysian Trumpet snails

    If I send you my mailing address would you mind giving me an actual shipping quote and then I can tell you if I'm a go for this. I'd love the MTS (I have some in my tank and love them, so these guys would have friends) but I'm not sure if it'd actually cost $10 for shipping. It may be less or...
