This is a fairly old thread but I thought I would keep it alive considering there's nothing happening in R.I. or Ma where I live. I just setup my first tank, a 30 gallon. I go to Rumford Aquarium / Something Fishy, Inc. for help & guidence. The 3 people I've spoken with there are very, very knowledgible. The person I will rely on for my any questions or information I can't get either through TPT or internet will be Caroline, next would be Pat & last would be Michael. You can email them anytime & they will answer your questions or just stop in if you live around here. Email address for Caroline is Caroline@somethingfishy.com
Another great Aquarium if your from around here is Rhode Island Aquarium on North Main Street Providence, R.I. The place has been in business forever, they have great supplies including Flourite & many healthy fish.
Just my 2 cents. Brian
