    Hi Nate,

    Good to see you on here again, I have looked for you on a regular basis. Almost all of the plants you sent have settled in and are doing extremely well. The only one I seem to be having issues with is the Java Fern Windelov, the leaves are fine but the smaller fronds are dying off they just seem to go to nothing almost from one day to the next. I am hoping to get a better LED in the next month or so. Hopefully this will do the trick and pull them back from the brink. CO2 is still a dream

    Hope you and yours have a great Thanksgiving.

    Yours sincerely

    Steven

    Hey there Pal,

    Hope the weekend is a good one for you, I have to work tomorrow. One of the dubious pleasures of working in the communications industry.

    A good friend of the family has put me in touch with a welding supply company here in town that will rent me a 20lb cylinder for $8 a month until I can afford to buy it from him. While I am renting it all refills are free, not that I imagine there will be many out of a 20lb cylinder.

    Of course the next thing I need to find is a regulator, I nearly fell over backwards when I looked at the Aqua Tec models on Amazon. There was one used at $250 and that was the lowest one I saw on there so I am going to check out Ebay and see whats what on there.

    Any suggestions on what I should look to pay, and would a single gauge one be as good as a dual gauge, I know two thins about all of this, nothing and beggar all!

    So any and all suggestions are more than welcomed.

    Thanks in advance

    Yours sincerely

    Steve
