Thanks! No I havnt found a 90 yet but that's mostly due to the fact I'm a little short on funds currently :P

As far as LFS around Cincy. I know of a couple..

All about pets: is in sharonville and he has a TON of dry stock and fresh and saltwater livestock. Pretty great place.

Also

Just about fish: is in eastgate area and has mostly just livestock. Fresh and saltwater fishes.

Between those two and petsmart I'm pretty well hooked up. Also meijer has been stocking a whole ton of aquatic plants the past couple years.

I've been to Monfort on Colerain ave, they are good people with a decent inventory. Other than Petsmart and Jack's there isn't much. I haven't tried Meijer's, I drive past one everyday on my way home from work

Nice tank! Yeah iv been pleased with meijers plants for awhile now. As usual frogbit and snails are a warning if you DO check them out. My loaches dont let any snails live though so no worries for me personally.

I have heard about monfort but iv never been. If you get a chance Definitly check out "all about Pets" in sharonville area.. He has a ton of USED tanks, powerheads, filters, lights, anything you can think of. not to mention small co2 rigs , amazing driftwood and rocks.. it goes on and on.. also lol bring cash and he likes to barter (atleast i think he does)

Besides that id also recommend buying from a reputable ebay seller if they have something specific you cant find anywhere else. Just have to "weed" through the over-posters.

heres a updated pic since i recieved my RAOK pack from Aulonocara_Freak which included "Narrow leaf ludwigia and hygro salucila" hope they grow quickly and dont grow algae... i seriously effin hate algae... Thanks for looking! more updates soon

Wood looks awesome. Tank is looking good. I like your red tail shark, they look great the older they get.
I've been looking for some sources of good stones also, seems anywhere that has nice stone wants a small fortune. I've got 6 acres of field stone, but most is limestone/sandstone.

Iv read a few times from different places that bonsai stores often carry nice stones for aquascaping but without the high premium it demands if marketed for aquarists. I don't know of any around my area so I havnt got to venture in the endeavor bit maybe you have one closer then I do lol. I think I might end up just filling the rest in with plants :P

Thanks Stephanie I really appreciate it. I think I need alot alot of co2 boost just to spot treat algae every time I see it.. Like in this tank I added pressurized co2 and still alot of algae.. I'm still saying its flow and soon as I can ima get some second hand cheapo power heads to blast more flow around.

Anyways here's a couple shots from today's wc



Hygro growing pretty happily no algae


Ludwigia narrow leaf.. Not so happy and growing algae(flow issue mostly I think)


Thanks for checking out my journal!! Come again soon!!

Isn't a 90g just a taller 75g? Have you considered dosing Metricide? I like where you're going with it

That tank really tied the room together
