I got mine at my LFS but I have found them on Amazon for a reasonable price with shipping.

I used superglue GEL. Make sure you get the gel. Last time I bought the liquid superglue. It works but it is much harder to work with.

That's this tank.

The glass dividers are optional and the tanks true volume isn't 3 gallons.

Got my DB 3g in the mail a few days ago, it was cracked. Should have the new one any day now. Do you have any suggestions? Are you heatin' it?

If the only tool you carry is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.

Yes, that's true. Both pumpkins and cherries are neos and were specifically bred to isolate their colors. When mixed, it is very likely they will not produce orange/red neos.

I love this tank size Highly considering getting one myself now!

Yes, I got it at House of Tropicals. This is the one tank that my wife really likes amongst all of the others.

Sucks that it was cracked. Hopefully the new one arrives OK. I am heating it with an adjustable heater that hangs on the rim. Its ugly but gets the job done since the tank is in my basement which is finished but very cold compared to the rest of the house. You have to be careful though. I almost cooked the shrimp over the weekend. Some how the heater got cranked all the way up and my temps shot up from ~70 to nearly 82! I try to keep the temp between 69-71.

Go for it! I don't think that anyone who has gotten one has regretted it.

I have algae pretty bad. BBA on the wood and hair in the fissidens. I tried to remove some fiss and trim it to see how much algae could take with it. It wasn't much. Not sure what steps to take. I have 3 sets of babies in the tank all less than a 1/4 inch so I really don't want to try anything drastic. Any ideas? I have been pulling what i can out with tweezers but it just keeps coming back.

On a side note, the 50+ babies seem to be eating all the food in the tank and the pond snail population is declining. I like that!

8 hours with a Beamsworks 18" LED. I have it resting on top of the tank until I can build a stand or hang it.

Decrease your period to 6 hours, do not feed more than once every three days and pick out what algae you see. It's what I'm dealing with now as well.
