yeah they have some crypts and then random stem bunches but nothing too amazing. the FW fish selection isnt the best ever but ive never had a fish die i bought from them. AAA is in the peachland publix strip mall, closer to the taco bell, right off of kings highway. again, not the best selection, but really great customer service there. getting things special ordered from him is really easy.

ahhh ok, i know that place, never been in there, it's just down the road for me, i live just off peachland down at the Homer depot end.
will have to stop in and see what he would charge, POW wants 27.00 for 20 lbs
am looking at close to 200.00 just for the substrate for both tanks.
gonna have to stop by there tomorrow and check them out.

hahah
adgshop.com <--- buy it there. in your 55 you would need 4 bags, idk about the 50 cube. probably like 5?
pros- packed full of nutrients, plants just love this stuff. you might not even have to dose the water column if you have low light. it buffers your water to soft and acidic, which plants thrive in. its just the best substrate for a healthy planted tank.
cons- theres an ammonia cycle that you have to go thru once you first get it, but its def worth it. and its kind of fragile, so dont beat the crap out of it.

cool a third, BTW chris did you ever sell that 10gal?

Both tanks are ready to rck here finally, you where right the aa guy very good, just went in asked if he could get me a price, and 1 day later he gave me the price an had ordered in 4 bags woohoo, went dont a bought them, went to POW for the rest, so not the 55 and the 50 are up and clear, both at temp.. and baseline numbers established for both tanks.

He had a pretty thin selection of plants, so thin i had to ask if he had any... lol and i was standing in front of them when i asked.

Nice guy there though, admitted he knew nothing of ECO Complete, but would find out.

so now all i need is to start planting, anyone got some clippings they would like to part with?

and Chris i might take that 10 and white clouds off your hands if you still are looking to dispose of them.

Larry I could send you down some clipping if you cover shipping, probably be about 8 bucks. I have a good amount of Sunset Hygro, Bacopa Caroliniana, Ludwigia Repens and a few Narrow Leaf Ludwigia clippings. I will probably have a small amounts of some other stem plants too that i will throw in also (I really need to trim my 10g today, its way over grown). Shoot me a PM if your interested.
