Bill - sorry about your shrimp.

I had some losses this weekend too. Was doing yardwork and afterwards I decided to clean the sponge on my filter intake. I took off the sponge, did a little trimming, etc.

I forgot I had put bug repellent on while doing yardwork. My CPO's started acting wacky. Once I realized what happened I did a huge WC, but they were dead while it was still draining.... Lost all 5 - 2 were berried Fish were unaffected.

Got my dry goods order in this morning. I'll return pending PMs about stuff you guys already asked about with final prices. All my original quoted prices are good. Only problem is I didn't get the larger atomizers so the smaller ones are good for up to a 20 gallon tank. It will be first asked first get on anything I don't have enough of. I can always place another order if you guys really wanted something. I'll post a link in here to my sale thread once I get all the pictures taken and get it posted...

Anybody asking about the breeding boxes... I setup one of the larger ones for myself and they are awesome. I'll be keeping my CPOs and some flame moss in there.

that sucks dan. I don't even allow bug spray in certain parts of my house because i have heard it can kill inverts.
I did check my yellow tank last night and my 2 berried females were still alive and pregnant, and my 2 saddled girls are still there. The dragonfly nymph ate quite a few males.

All of it... lol.

Just a couple stems. I wanna try it out for kicks.



Anybody who I PM'ed a "locals price" add $1 to each item. Sorry. I just got the invoice emailed to me and shipping was twice what I calculated. I thought they mischarged me for something they didn't send but turns out the shipping was wacky high. Sorry for the confusion.

Wish I could place bigger orders to cut the shipping charges. Just can't be placing $1000 orders for this stuff. My wife would literally make me sleep in my fish room.

No problem. I can give you enough to carpet a 10g and what's wrong with sleeping in your fish room? I fall asleep in mine all the time. I find the water sounds very soothing

I'm in the process of cleaning out my 75 gallon tank so it's nice and clean for a possible scape and I realize a ton of my trident fern just straight up melted and died. It was tucked in the corner under some java moss. I just assumed since I saw the tops of the leaves were green and fine that the rest of it under the moss cloud would be fine because it's low light...right? Nope...a big melty mess. That's what I get for not doing tank maintenance while I was at school. Oh well, I still have a lot of needle leaf that survived and I'll spread that thinly through the background once it's all cleaned up.

Went over to Nemo's today to get a new bulb (which they didn't have). They did have some nice Angel selections but of course their prices were wonky. Nice Koi Angels but $40/each for 2". Ridiculous. Had some gorgeous blacks too. But they were $25/each for under 2". Hate that place so hard...

i told you that place would suck after the initial WOW factor was gone. they may have changed the name, but it's still the same old pets plus.

Bill,

No.. no co2.. Just put some fresh water in and I'll give you a bag of CRS to try again when you drop off my new tank.

You purchased those CRS from me and I have a one time 30 days survival guarantee just for you.

Don't go getting the idea that you will be getting my other special ones.. just some nice ones for you to try again but trust me, these aren't half bad. They are at least S grade.
