Linder If you are in Southern R.I., check the Sea Horse on Beach Street in Westerly R.I. Lots of plants and healthy fish. Always helpful.

Right now I have a 20g long I put a sub down in a month ago. Its got red clay, mono clay, vigro organic soil, and some black diamond blasting sand as a cap.

there's some comets just hanging out in there with some anacharis. My LED bulbs and light sockets came in yesterday so I'm going to put that together this weekend and really get my hands dirty


Hi Pgaron,

It's good to have another member from RI on here as were far and few between. I second marioman72's offer on plants if you need any. Currently I have (Hygrophila Corymbosa 'Angustifolia') and (Glossostigma Elatinoides) in surplus and am always willing to donate. As goes for anyone else in RI.

pgaron Yea, I saw him once on the weekend, never spoke with him though. I have gone a few times this week and his wife is always there I have spoken with her a few times. She said her husband is more knowledgeable than she is about the plants

NanoDave I personally love Deep Blue tanks and find their lights to be just as high quality. Never had a problem with the 3 I have and I find them more aesthetically pleasing than most others on the market.
09-27-2013 02:42 AM
tattooedfool83 Yeah it's not bad, all deep blue products it seems. Great tanks, not sure how the lights are. But how it is now compared to how it was its like night and day

CuzIsaidSo I work right on N Main St and haven't been to RI Aquarium in a couple years because of how it use to be but apparently things have changed...i'm gonna have to check it out this weekend

NanoDave I stopped into RI Aquarium yesterday after doing the rounds around RI with a friend showing him all the stores and wow am I impressed. The store was very clean and the fish all looked good. They're setting up a huge wall of tanks when I went in and the racks look good. They had a huge tank sale going on for 10-75gal Deep Blue tanks only a few bucks more than $ per gallon. Their Deep Blue lighting prices are ridiculously low and are very tempting. Overall huge improvement and I've def put this place back on my map.

0live Okay, nothing really to report. Still so-so livestock.. though they have some of they're used tanks for sale (75s I think. didn't ask.)
