Petsmart and Petco have those tissue cultured plants that are supposed to be pest free, but they don't offer the variations I want.

Tanks: Standard 90 gallon...

silly question --- how do I kill shrimp?

okay, this might seem a bit ridiculous, but I need a 100% (or at least a 99.999% solution) to kill RCS.

But I don't want to have...
