i could send you some shrimp for a few of those beers :-).

i think i may just put that rangeri sword i have in this new tank. if i can ever get the rocks postioned how i like them.



i'm thinking moving the two green rocks (they look white in the photo) and the geode to the center and clustering closer together, and then moving the black rock to the left side.

What plants you initially go with?

I am regretting a fertilizer purchase from a forum sponsor. It's been a month and nothing :-/ No emails sent back and no info given on orders. Just a generic response on the forums, then no actions taken. I've been waiting a month, then they sent me UPS info a week ago and it is only stating that the label was printed. It hasn't even shipped. Ugh!

Ok, I'm done ranting. I just texted him. Hopefully I'll get a reply. But no one else has. Even though he's still posting on the forums -.- just not on his sales thread where people have been begging for information.

...he just replied to my text with "Today! Thanks!"

Crypt Parva, Swarf Sag (that i want to rip out and replace), Hygro Kompact, Rangeri Sword, and some narrow leaf elodea. i've got eco-complete, and yes its quartz.

i need to polish the quartz but i'm lazy and i just wanted to get the damn tank set up. i'm moving my Peacock gudgeons, CPO, and RCS into that tank.

whats the name of the beer? i recoginized the label but i can't remember the name.


Samp if i needed crs i would be more than happy to, but i have RCS in all of my tanks expect my shrimp which has blue pearls.

I'm a fan of the whole community thing but every time I buy off forum members via mail, it ends in disappointment.

It is why I preach local but a lot of the times it can't be helped. No one sells everything we want so we put our hopes in horticulture elitist and skibby stoner alike via mail.
The price we pay for shrimp that juggle chainsaws or mosses that only grow in Tom Barr's buttcrack.

i haven't had any trouble buying off forum members. i've only bought from two though. one of them i bought food off of. after about a week it started growing mold on it. i contacted the seller and he replaced it, and threw in a ton of extra stuff.

Sol a pale lager via Heineken international. They're on it when it comes to mexico breweries; carta blanca, sol, dos eqies, bohimia, ect. In my youth i was into tough dark robust ales, but nothing beats a lighter lager after 12 hrs of work. They drop back easy breezy and i'm not fighting the heaviness and headache in the morn.

My star grass came in when it starts to weed i'll share if you're interested.
Soft leaf, easy and attractive would be bushy in a 20l.
Try a blyxa or erio specie. everyone seems to be into those, easy to get from the look of things

Anyone have one of those fluval shrimp tanks? If so any feedback appreciated!

Yeah, I lost 50 dollars buying someone's yellow/orange shrimp. I think it's too late to call Paypal. :/ But otherwise, things have worked pretty well buying from forum peeps. I <3 the green gecko crypts I got! Zid's orange shrimps have done really well, too.

I wish I could've gotten some of those awesome snails bushy offered, but stupid xrays and stupid lungs. >:| I need robot lungs already so I can take over- I mean, uh...

Also, this borneowild spirulina turns my hands green... Hulk... FEED FISH RESPONSIBLY!

I've done a lot of plant trades and buying on the forums. Almost all have gone well. I think I've had 1 that was bad, 1 plant of a package that showed up melted, and now this one. I've also had people replace things that went lost, missing, melted, or dead.
