Oh well, never used it so no sweat off my nose. I'm thinking about trying out hydroton as a substrate in a crypt tank. Already planning on using it in my tree frog viv, but i think i'm gonna buy enough to do a small tank as well. It does come in bb sized granules, so it might work for a planted tank.

Bucks County Aquarium Society,
http://www.facebook.com/groups/112403151781/

From Mark Denaro ,

Natural Pet (formerly Captain Nemo's) has invited us to hold our April meeting in their store and we have accepted. Everything remains the same for the meeting except the location. The store address is 2876 Dekalb Pike in Norristown, PA. The meeting will start at 7:30. Get there early so you can spend some time looking around. They've made some very positive changes to the store. We'll be meeting for dinner before the meeting at 6:00 at Ray's Restaurant and Malt Shop, which is located in the same parking lot. I hope to see all of you there
