if you are ever back in this neck of the woods make a stop at rainbow fish store, I help out around there.
the ph controller was not hard at all, I had a saltwater buddie walk me through the calibration part and really was as easy as dipping the prob in 7.0 solution seting it, and the the same with 5.0 solution.
in all honesty you don't need the controller if you keep up on maintenance, i got it in the beginning because I thought it was cool just a solenoid and a timer is all you need. but "ph controller" does sound high teck and cool,lol

Hey Scott I have been hearing your name a lot from Mark. Guess we are both getting some nice clippings from him. Tried going by Rainbow a couple weeks ago on Sat and they were closed at 3pm. Did you ever order up some other shrimp?

I could be wrong but it appears that Rainbow Fish is going all Marine ... help help the dark side of the force has him ... also from what I can gather Mark does not work there any longer

Sea Dreams on East Harry seems to be "the" place for fish at the moment and they have recently started getting some really nice plants in stock. Nothing too rare or expensive but good stock and not too pricey, oh and that goes for their fish too!

The Mark im talking about never worked at Rainbow that i know of.

Also the old Fins and Feathers seems to have the best plant selection of recently then Sea Dreams or any other LFS. Fins is now called Petland but still in the same location out in West Wichita. They really seem to be trying to make a push for plants. Not many rares but still they are at least trying.

None of these places carry planted tank equipment yet...so gotta love the sponsors here.

Hi Im from hutchinson kans, go to wichita and hit all the petstores that carry good variety of fish and plants. Sea Dreams is good, fins and feathers has large selection of plants and fish, I keep Amazon river aquarium (45 gal bowfront) most all plants and all my fish are variations of native fish.

I know this is an old thread. I'm from Plains. I've been in Fish World. Jim has a nice shop. There is a new store on 2nd and Kansas now too. Fins, Feathers and Furs. It's also a nice store.

Dodge City here...technically not Wichita. That said...everyone besides KC has got to stick together when it comes to Kansas, lol.

Speaking of...I'd kill for a Knollas Pizza right now.
