How do I hyperlink in my signature?
Sorry missed this.

You hyperlink by going on the User CP tab in the website, then editing signature, highlighting the words you want linked, then when "DBP Club" is highlighted, click what looks like a world and chains around it. Paste the link to this in it!

I have a 5b waiting for snow already.

The 3b is going to be for my underwater volcano scape.

Soup, this and others like it were said throughout the thread. They're much better than petco tanks

Also, the black silicone they use is much cleaner and better looking than sloppy clear silicone. Check out my thread in my sig for a few pictures.

Re: DBP Club! Join the movement.

Try contacting Allpet.com. I spoke with their customer service several times and they were very helpful. Perhaps they can order it for you. I believe your asking about the 2.5 gallon measuring 12-6-8"?

Maybe you can contact DBP via their website and ask where the closest vendor to you is. They emailed me back right away when I had a question.

Double DBP 2.5 Gallon Shrimp/Betta Aquariums - Because everyone needs a tank or two in their bathroom!
Chickadee & Me - What I'm doing when I'm not fussing with my tanks.
My Chickens - My other obsession.
