Some of the Rillis look like Cherry shrimp, and some of them look orange... but they all come from Blue Rilli

Wow.....you're gonna have a long run at it. It's gonna be a lot of culling. Might take a few generations before you get them to be pure blue rilli. Just remember, it's a labor of love!!!

Bill...I was thinking about mixing the fine stuff with some miracle grow for the emersed setup. That way I can get some use out of it and it wouldn't get all over the leaves like that in an aquarium. Thoughts?

You know it's not that hard to move a tank that dimension (I've moved it from my garage to my basement before). I think the hardest part may be because it's in the city.

I'm not interested in scratched and chipped tanks. The large tank Im looking for will be my main show tank so I want it to be nice. I'm willing to just buy a new tank if I have to when the time comes. Good lookin out though.

somebody must have gotten a fire lit under their butt at the hidden reef, they added about 4 plant tanks!! must be tired of losing business to aquarium center. problem is, whoever is ordering, has no clue. they have 2 125g tanks filled with madagascar lace and full grown potted amazon swords. do they think everyone has a pond or a 210g tank??

Hey guys - been super busy with school and work so I am breaking down a tank to keep my work limited to two tanks.

Anyone interested in a 20L? I bought it new about 3 months ago. It has mostly eco complete, a tiny bit of FSS mixed in. Has a HOB filter & one T8.

anybody interested in 4 kribs? (sorry jason, i'm keeping the rams) i'm slowly starting to take the 125 down and i need to find homes for all my fishies. also have 2 larger (5" or so) striped raphael catfish. all i want in return is some plants. anubias would be great, i would also be interested in java fern or bolbitis. there are also 5 northern austrailian rainbows and 6 giant danios.
