Houston and surrounding cities!!!


Hello All, I see this section is rather small. I would like to attempt to make it a place that gets a lot of traffic.

Texas is a big ass state so get your assess in here and lets to some buying, trading and selling!

I am looking for some beginner Cardinia Species shrimp, I dont want my neo's breeding so let me know what you got!

Also looking to some exotic plants for my tanks, I have 3 that could use some color other than green!!

Let me know what you got!

Jake

Nice job with the carpet. Was that DSM? Those luteas get a huge crown on them. I cut one after about 6 months and got over 25 plants off it

My only suggestion is to cut the intake (if possible) and move it to the back.

Thanks. Nope, just a regular tank. I personally like luteas. When I transplanted the stems from the previous version of this tank, half the stems grew reddish brown leaves and the other half grew green leaves. I don't know if that is normal but I thought it was pretty interesting. I agree, I only recently switch to a Zoomed filter, and I only plan to keep this version going until the dwarf sag fills in as I just planted it. Before then, the lutea went coast to coast in the back. I have some interesting plans for the next version so the inflow and outflow will be much more aesthetically pleasing.

I'm not sure on the brand; however, the dimensions are 35x33x21 rimless and curved front corners. I have more elaborate plans for the next version of this tank. Color is definitely a priority.
