Don't bother going to the petco on aramingo for nice driftwood....I bought it all haha. Three pieces in total. The rest are just flat pieces that don't look good at all in my opinion. I have about 5 or 6 pieces of mopani driftwood now But I'm not stopping I will continue to search far and wide for more nice driftwood pieces until my 75 gallon and 40 breeders are stuffed to the brim hahaha

Lost a cpo today for no apparent reason. Down to 1 now. Before I went to work he was laying on his back and barely moving once in a great while. It was sad cuz his buddy wouldent leave his side.

Anyone know if neon tetra's will eat cherry shrimpletts? I'm thinking about putting 10-15 in my 30 gallon to spice things up......errrr maybe I'll put 30 or so in my 75 once it's actually set up. Everything I have in my tanks right now you have to look for. It would be nice to have a group of schooling fish to complement the aquascape.

yes they will, but if you let the shrimp establish themselves and give them plenty of plants to hide in, they'll be good.

john, sorry for your loss and i agree with steve, it wasn't cpo loyalty. in fact, he was probably sitting next to his buddy wearing a miniature lobster bib

Bought some levamisole hydrochloride from ebay for $30. A great deal compared to everywhere else I've found that charges double that. I've read up on the compound and it's apparently very good at dealing with internal parasites and actually has no effect on plants or inverts. I figured spending $30 to save my guppies was worth it. I bought 52 grams I believe and I think 5 grams treats 100 gallons, so I should be good. If anyone needs any, let me know.

if i had any fish to get parasites, i would be happy. i'm down to 5 neon tetras and 2 striped raphael cats. it's freaking depressing to look at my tanks lately.

If you are treating worms, try Vermisol. This is what I use for deworming discus.

Yea...the active ingredient is the same. Just different concentrations.
