Hey folks, I just did some domain management to redirect TankPlanters.com over to a catalog page on the Riparium Supply site.

Here's the link.

www.TankPlanters.com/

TankPlanters.com will eventually have its own dedicated site with an online store. I plan to set up a Facebook page too. Watch out here for updates.

Thanks you guys.

We are working on more new planter sizes and substrate options. There are a couple of larger models that will be nice for discus setups and the like.

I am also trying to figure out a best way to configure the TankPlanters.com site. I might just end up purchasing an ecommerce WordPress theme(??). Does anybody know about any free themes out there good for online stores?

I'm working on more new products. This is the Tank Planters Large Planter 2-pack.



This new larger planter size (~3" wide) is especially nice for growing swordplants, crypts and aponogeton. It could be handy for discus setups or for controlling the size of plants that can get to be too large. I don't quite have it in the online store, but it will be there soon.

When it comes to e-commerce, I wouldn't risk any of the "free" themes out there unless they use paypal as their only means of payment.

Judging from your site, you have experience with using paypal carts, so you could always do that as well.

You also have the other option of using godaddy hosting and e-commerce as well. It would cost you roughly $20 dollars a month for the hosting and shopping cart. The shopping cart is pretty darn nice and user friendly the last time I researched it. It even shows customers updated quantity information if I remember correctly.

For now I am just going to stick with the PayPal cart. I could probably just use hand-made html or whatever blog theme for that, but I thought that it could be handy to have a smoother and better looking ecommerce theme that I could add more functionality to later on.

I forgot to mention that the Large Planters 2-pack also includes a bag of the new gravel substrate with plenty of material to plant them up. This gravel includes soil-based grains that provide a long-term nutrient source.

Well even if you just used the paypal cart, it could smoothly be transitioned into the godaddy cart, as they can use paypal as a payment form.

I can imagine some really silly Photoshopping with planted aquariums + NASCAR.
