thanks! Its manzanita.
I actually got it from blooms and branches! I ordered the three size bundle because I couldnt decide and it was PLENTY. I could have gone with just the small, but the three sizes let me pick some more unique shapes and honestly was a good deal! Im def gonna spread it around to the rest of my tanks! plus the platys love to nibble on the bark! and im sure a pleco would appreciate it too! Love this stuff! and safe too.

It's possible the only raise in price was on Marine Depot. Just because they release a pic of a pallet of tanks doesn't mean prices won't go up since demand is up. They have shown 3 pictures of pallets of 12 longs in the past year.

I am CERTAIN from our club alone we easily covered 1 pallet of these from new interests. Like I always said, Marine Depot should really start giving us discounts!

Finally got around to taking some pictures of mine:



Currently looks out of balance, waiting on the S. Repens to grow in on the right.

Stats:

36" Fugeray suspended ~17" above the substrate
Finnex PX360 (might need to upgrade for more flow)
Fluval Stratum substrate
Currently colonized by RCS, 2 otos, 3 panda cories, and 8 ruby tetras

I'm planning on getting a 12 g long. Would a 24" quad t5ho fixture give me high light with full coverage over the tank. Thanks, hope to join the club soon.

How high do you plan to hang it? This tank is 36" long

The higher the better aesthetically at least, but I'm willing to compromise looks for better coverage. How about 8 in or so from the surface? I really don't know, hoping for some suggestions.

A quad T5HO will give you super high light for this tank. 8 inches isn't nearly high enough, plus you won't hit the sides of the tank with light. You will have tons of algae in the middle, and no growth on the sides. I use a T5NO dual lamp at about 6 inches above the top of the tank and I am getting algae. Save that quad for another project, and get yourself a 36" light.

Yeah wow. $108 + tax + shipping, they should make it better for the price, like with high clarity glass or something. I guess the popularity drove prices up. That is the downside of this thread. Have gotten so many new members of the club since this and because of it now, it's more expensive for everyone

They should give us discounts!!!
Hello!

Name is John, I represent the North American distributor for Mr. Aqua. We will be sponsoring PlantedTank.net! (Should be up in a couple days) I was reading through the site and specifically this thread of course. MarineDepot did raise their prices, however it is not related to any pricing on our part, only their costs to carry and provide the product for you. However I will be talking to them and see if we can get the 12 gallon long below $100 for the cost of the tank. Thank you for posting this. Any comments are appreciated and I will do my best personally to make our customers as happy as possible. FYI, even though our tanks are great in quality, we are going to be producing and increasing the quality of our tanks even more. We are implementing higher standards for our tanks produced and will keep our low cost. (We don't all need the illusion of quality through high prices). We are hoping to start producing a Low Iron version of the 12 gallon long soon but so far it has been an issue with cost that has slowed that progress down. I am very happy and excited by the club you made here, I personally have been going through it for a while. I have been in the hobby for over 10 years professionally and am ready and willing to help you guys whenever I can. Consider me your guy on the inside.
