I recently raised the stones a little so the HC won't overtake it. I'm happy with the left side but I need to raise the right side a bit higher. I also need to order some acrylic rods to make the spray bar. After that's done then I'll probably flood this thing.

Thanks! HC hasn't given me a real problem yet... It must be the high humidity here.

CPD prices???

Tonight I went to the H.A.S. (Honolulu Aquarium Society) meeting/auction. One of the items up was a bag of 3 CPDs(Celestial Pearl Danio/Galaxy Rasbora) that started at $!0. CPDs are a rare find in Hawaii and I told another member

"I bet this will be the highest money maker".

He looked at me funny and asked "do they get any bigger?"

I said "no, that's full grown". Most of the members are cichlid breeders.

When the auction item 150 came up, there were three of us bidding... and long story short, the CPDs went for $53 and swam home with someone else.

Should I have gone to $60($20 a fish)? Would you pay more for these? Anyone got some for sale?

Thanks!

Kai

Damn you're lucky. I think that was the first time I've seen them in person.

Thanks Jojo! I'll be away the first 2 Saturdays in October during the fall break. I hope I can make it.

Aquascapes is the only store that I know that brings in the CPD. Let me know if you get more!

What to do while waiting for your plants to fill...

I'm still waiting for a few things before I fill my tank. My 6 year old son recently got into LEGO and thought it would be a good idea to make forest/jungle scene.



It's the Clones vs Droid Army






Possible time travel??? I don't know where those storm troopers came from.


Clones Down. Medic!!


I didn't have time to include the blaster fire/laser. Enjoy and Thanks for looking.
