    (56k nono)Less than a month in, and already needed a trim

    It's lookin greaet andy! its filling in beautifully, another couple months and it will look even better. now that you have trimmed your cabomba back, it will send up offsets from the bottom. and it will get bushier and fill in the back. I think this first trimming will give you enough body...

    just wonderin'

    well, i would advise being extremely careful, or staying away at all... these fish ARE still illegal in the united states and they care a hefty fine if your caught w/ one. there are legal ways to get them, for instance, if you have a research permit.

    just wonderin'

    to bad the government is to stupid to allow us to import these beautiful fish... It's ridiculous that Asian Arrowanas are still restricted, their numbers were recovered in the wild a decade ago, and the color stains bred for the hobby are to bright and colorful to have long term success in the...

    just wonderin'

    Will, the parents are usually killed for food, the Arrowana is a food fish in south america, so the babies w/ yolk sacks are an attempt at saving those fish (for the purpose of getting a few cents), though the vast majority will die anyhow. I have had silver Arrowanas, and they are amazingly...

    Resist Urge to Kill Endangered Species...

    ok... so... I woke up sunday morning, looked out my window, to see a what i believe to be a blue heron, standing in my half whisky barrel pond w/ a goldfish tail sticking out of it's beak. This little bugger has obviously acclimated to hunting near houses and ornamental ponds for easy prey. I...

    mini pond

    put a lilly in your pond, it will grow out, shade the water, and cool it down. in addition it will protect your fish from those dirty evil flying things.

    Church learns Vet was gay, cancels memorial

    Phission, its the people who want to secularize the past that are mistaken. "One nation under God" "In God we Trust" NO, not all the founding fathers were christians, but you can not take 5, 10, or even 15 of them that were not and say 'this is the all the evidence we need'. there were 88...

    Church learns Vet was gay, cancels memorial

    hmmm.. leave it to a conversation like this to drag me out of the woodworks. First, let me commend you all for staying fairly civil. Second, lets remember that a broad brush rarely if ever, paints a suitable picture. I grew up in a Southern Baptist household, and we were raised to take the...

    FRONTOSA!!!!!!!!!!

    around? what IS the PH? when asking for help in aquariums it can be very important to list what the exact parameters of your water are, not just PH, but alk, amonia, etc... how long has the tank been setup, was it cycled? what is the water movement like? I am not an expert on frontosa by...

    Sad Day....

    My Blood Red e. quadricolor anemone decided to go for a stroll last night, right down the throat of a korallia pump. now, this took some effort, and is akin to a suicide wish... i had put craft plastic all around the 'intakes' of the koralia, but he decided to walk right up the out-current...

    Whisper internal powerfilters. 10i vs 2-10i

    cheap is for the most part right. keep in mind that walmart forces companies to a bottom dollar price point, this usually means they have to cut corners somewhere. that is one reason petflytrap never sought walmart out as a vendor. trust me, your much better off with brands like ehiem...

    Whisper internal powerfilters. 10i vs 2-10i

    hmm, I have no experience with these filters though whisper seems to be a quality, if not high performance brand. I would encourage you to give your patronage to a local fish store over walmart. not because I hate walmart (though I am no fan) but because: 1) walmart has no business carrying...
