Well I'm not in Cheyenne but am in Casper. I thought I'd respond to this thread since it seems to be the latest.
I've had fish tanks of one sort or another for well over 30 years, but by no means an expert---certainly more questions than answers. At present I have a 65 and a 55 gallon. The 65 gallon is planted relatively nicely and I use a DIY CO2 system (yeast/sugar/etc) and I'm in the market for an inexpensive pressurized system. The 55 gallon needs revamped and is nothing to speak of. I'm also in the process of turning a 20 gallon into a vivarium and have plans for a paludarium in the near future.
I love it, its only taken a year to get a response.
Where do you get your plants from, the only LFS down this way with anything to speak of has closed its doors. Not that its a surprise when comparing prices online. For the fish and plants I was happy to pay more. For equipment, no way.
i'll bump this thread too.. cowboy you still around? i'm in Laramie and there's a plant gal here in town that's selling some aquatic plants. seem decently priced as well. also selling some guppies and what not. let me know if you're still in the area!
Hi all, don't know if anyone is still here I see it's been a while.
Anyway, I'm in Cheyenne and I'm new to the aquarium world.
I am looking for black sand. can anyone tell me where I can find it here in Cheyenne?
if you can find a tractor supply warehouse they sell black blasting sand. Its cheap and you get 40 or 50 pound bags(if I remember correctly). I think they were around 8$. I think there is one in northern colorado. They are everywhere in nebraska though.
How much do you need? I have a couple extra in the garage that I could offload. My shrimp tank took a backseat to life for a bit.
