Oh I have a little packet of potassium permanganate to share. it's great for medicating fish and killing off snails when quarantining plants. you can also make a solution from it, wait till it turns brown and use it for extra potassium (and manganese?! I'm guessing cos it's in the formula, but I aint no chemist)
Ohhh ill trade you for the top if you have anh more samples left.

I started dry verging via the EI dosing method and I have seen some wonders with the stuff. It's true what blueK24a4 said...you have to use it for awhile...(few weeks) before seeing a difference.

Right now, my fissidens are growing at a rate that I have never experienced.

Albert came over today and I just ripping them off the driftwood because I know it will just grow right back.

Aokashi, I can give you some ferts to last you a few weeks. Especially with a smaller tank, you dont need a lot each time.

I believe I only have 100g to share XD, you wont end up with much... I usually stuff all my plants in a bottle I want to treat. because the stuff destroys parasites too A tiny pinch usually does the trick. whatever turn the water a nice purple. Plants also take well tothe treatment.

There's not much about the specific dosage to this thing online. but I havent read about it killing any fish yet...

Hoping you guys and gals can help me out I've just flooded my tank and I'm doing a fish less cycle at the moment But I'd like to get a school of cory cats in my tank when the time comes and was wondering what is the average price in the greater NYC area?

At this point the Panda and emerald are the tops on my list but I'm open to any type as long as they don't get to be more then 3" or so I also plan to have some Bosemani rainbows and some Iranian red Rainbows as well.

These cories range from $3-6 at the lfs. Both are semi rare with pandas showing up more frequently. If you come across them I suggest getting the batch together as they would likely be of relative size and age.

Been driving an suv these past days which has been more comfortable all around but looking forward to getting my own car back. Had an annoying problem where it would occasionally stall when slowing to idle (800) while in motion. Timing was off and my plugs were needing replacement but alas all is fixed now and I'll be back in the driver seat later today. Not bad for a 22 yr old car.

#topic change
Pps pro might be the way to go for approaching ferts in nano tanks as it wouldn't require weekly water changes while providing gradual improvement in plant growth. Ei is best when supplemented with co2 and high light, which most of our nano setups are not.

I like slow and steady personally, and ppspro suits that. Ei is more like ferts on steroids.

Ever have a song that's stuck in your head? There's been a screen name that has had that effect on me, "if wishes were fishes" Lol

Is that crazy or what.

Just had a vision of a fifty-pound goldfish slamming into my head from above ... thanks, Albert

Dart ... I fed you already ... you're on a diet now and you aren't going to get more food for 22 hours ... please stop picking your poop off the sand thinking that it's food. It's not. It wasn't when you picked it up five seconds ago, and it sure as heck isn't going to magically turn into food five seconds from now, either. Please. I know I said I wish you'd stop lying around looking like your belly was going to explode, but please stop trying to eat your poop - this is why I don't have a dog.

For nano tanks, I don't think samples would be too bad. My biggest issue would be finding enough small containers to pack them in.

I had thought about this which had bropught me to the container store. Was thinking of making mixes and packing. Just pay for the containers with ferts being raok. Would this be ok with everyone?
