Just found out the car won't be fixed until the 21st and I likely won't get the title transferred until that Saturday the 23rd. It went into the shop the 9th, why the heck do they need until the 21st to get it done? Strange.

I have a butt ton of dwarf lettuce and water sprite once again. Let me know if anyone wants some/more for free.

Oh and check out this DIY canister filter. I'm most likely gonna build one. I went to home depot to check out prices for PVC the other day. Gonna cost around $20 bucks to make (luckily I already have primer and glue), but I'm gonna make a huge one about 5ft tall and fill it with crushed lava rock and some foam and call it a day haha

It's just getting body work done. My brother took it in to see what parts they needed so they could order them. Parts came in so he brought the car back on Saturday. It was a side swipe scratch on one side of the car. I believe it only affected one door.

Hey guys, I know this is a long time from now, but does anyone have like 20-30 leaves worth of anubias nana petite they'd like to sell to me sometime in September when I go off to college in Philly? Just wanted to see whether I should look here on TPT or at some LFS up there.

Within a few blocks, not far at all. Good public transportation there, and lots of stuff to do within walking distance, but is on the expensive side. My work is a cross the street from 30th street station.

Not sure what you are look for as far as blue print goes. I built mine with stuff I picked up from a post by Hans (Discus Hans in Maryland) when he posted his fish house expansion. Seeing how he has 3 level of tanks using just 2"x4" wood, I did a tiny scale of that in my garage. I later moved the tanks into my little utility room in the basement.

Nothing special about those racks for the tanks. They are relatively easy to put together with a saw and deckscrews.

Cheapest without some crazy sale is around $110. If you are interested in ordering Marineland, my friend could probably beat whatever local price you can get. Must pick up locally in South Philly. He can get it within a week.
