I haven't seen any either, but RobertH does offer a book on CD. I haven't seen it, so have no clue whether it's any good.

For me, it's lots of foreground--whether it's open or...

I've seen it come and go over the years, although I couldn't tell you what triggers its demise. I think it may be a variety of things. I never bother cleaning it off equipment or wood. On...

I like the 1 gallon gatorade jugs--flat base, wide opening, handle.

Edit: Rex's tip of making the hole a little too small works better than any connector I've tried.

It's easy to settle the debate. If the plant grows like a rosette (all leaves come from the roots), then it's probably C. helferi. If it grows leaves off of a central stem, then it's probably...

I felt the same way about the oceanic bio cube--until I discovered one of the fans was cracked. A new fan quieted it right down. If it's under warranty, take the top back for a new one.

I wonder if those are the same thing as balloon rams. They are long finned rams with shorter, stubbier bodies than normal.
