they also have used 90gal corner tank for $90
thats all... or they selling old 55gal complete setup for $300... too much

Oh...datnioides....
i wanted to buy that fish but couldnt find it
(now the hiddenreef has it for $40)
so i started these guys instead in my 110gal tank
these guys are peaceful, doing well with angelfish and corydoras


i bred albino cories in 10gal tank. if u breed albino longfin pleco , u would get more money or more store credit from lfs L144 would be much better...
i bred angelfish and albino plecos in 40gal tank. but i have no luck breeding them in 20gal high tank. i put actual breeding pair alone in 20gal tank. after they laid eggs , they fight too much
so i had to remove weaker one before got killed...

how often do you guys meet up?

I've been wondering if there is a society to join out here. Back home in LA, I was a member of SCAPE and we met up monthly and had a blast buying, selling, and trading plants and fish.

I know BCAS is pretty active but its farther than I want to drive...especially since I live in Glen MIlls now. I haven't heard or seen much about Delaware County Aquarium Society but I was wondering if there are enough people here where we can start our own thing.

Let me know what you guys are a part of. Would love to join a community of like minded folks. Thanks

We were meeting quite often for a while, but then summer hit and most people faded out of existence...lol i was going to join bcas, but my schedule conflicts with their meeting schedule. I think it was mentioned about starting something, but fizzled out. I miss the meets, it's nice to get together with like minded folk and swap stuff and info.

I completely tore up everything in the 30 to start over. Still haven't started planting the 75 haha...gonna trash all the floaters tomorrow and start tying on the anubias 3 or 4 at a time. So I should have all the anubias tied on by the end of the week. SHOULD that is.

Yeah, that works too. Nothing like standing in front of someone's tank and say "man, that's a nice plant", and they have it bagged for you before you can complete the sentence.......lol

You're worse than i about tearing tanks apart......lol i just started up a 30L crypt/anubias/java fern/ crs tank. I gotta get some rocks so i can get it scaped. Then i am off to see a man about some crs i should see jimmy this weekend for some shrimp and endler's and the paludarium will be at 100% completion and hopefully see dan for some shrimp for the 75. All the while i'm working on a 40b dart frog paludarium. I needed the break over the summer after all my shrimp died the way they did, but i am back baby!!! Lol

I think I'll set a date for my house for a week after I finish the 75. That way I actually have something to show when you guys come here.

Sounds like a plan! I'll have plenty of plants to give away by then.
