gotta give a nice shout out to Jimmy. he hooked me up with some gorgeous tigers and some equally awesome yellow shrimp. unfortunately, i was unable to take them right home, so they sat in my cold shop near my space heater all day. the yellows are great. tigers didn't make it i am really believing that i am not supposed to have tiger shrimp!!!

btw, Jimmy, what kind of guppies are they in your spec?? i want some!!!!

Tony, i can do fissidens anytime. That stuff is like a weed in my tank. Literally. It has gotten on every single piece of wood in my tank. And i only smeared it on the rock when i did my dry start.,

Edit: sorry, blyxa will be a few weeks, more like a month. Got anything new and exciting?

Hi everyone. New to the forum. Looking for snails(MTS, ramshorn and/or nerite), shrimp and some bristlenose. I'm in the Lehigh Valley. Anyone have a ready-to-go algae squad for me? I have some not-so-spectacular trades, but cash is king, right?

I probably pass by your way on my way there, I get off the NE extension at exit 74 and drive down 209 towards 715.

I've never been able to grow java fern. I did know it seems to like less light though since it grows better in a dark bucket than in my tanks. Adding potassium and co2 eh? Hmmm....Maybe I'll give it a try.

Anyone ever used super glue to attach anubias or java fern to wood? I've heard it's completely safe because it dries so quickly, but you can understand why I would be hesitant.

Seeing that picture of java fern makes me want to throw some in the 75 with the anubias One of the few large pieces of anubias I tied down came untied. Frustrating considering I tie 1 piece on every week and I'm not getting anywhere with it.
