  1. If you qualify for the shirt, please make sure to give Koko your full name and phone number (especially if you are outside of the US, customs requires). You won't be spammed, I promise! It's just for delivery issues that might arise. If you want notification of the shipment, also include your email address.
  2. We sell extension tubes for AquaClear filters, if someone has both, maybe they can see if they might be compatible with the Aqueon? http://tastyworms.com/aquaclear-20-30-50-extension-tube-a625.html http://tastyworms.com/aquaclear-70-110-extension-tube-a627.html Aqueon doesn't sell an extension tube per say, but they do sell replacement parts. You can contact them directly to find out where to order. It doesn't look like they nest like Aquaclear intakes, so I'm not sure you could buy an extra part and just plug them together. But I'm sure you could hacksaw a piece off and join them somehow, maybe epoxy or epoxy putty.
  3. Chris, That sounds like a great deal! How many ounces is the bag? 12.3oz . Incidentally, I use Prime as well, it can be a great deal. Especially if you're just buying 1 item. Prime prices are on average higher than non-prime prices. So when you want to buy 3 items rather than 1, you can usually find it somewhere else cheaper. Competition is pretty stiff on fish food and I know short term price is the deciding factor. But I humbly request that you give us a try if we've got it in stock. We use the proceeds to do things like sponsor forums and introduce cool new products like Repashy that the big guys don't want to take chances on.
  4. Generally filters like these require household water pressure of 50 - 75 psi. It's not about the flow in this case, but the pressure. You would need something called a booster pump which takes water of certain pressure and boosts its psi. Booster pumps are considerably more expensive than sump pumps unfortunately and are designed for mostly clean water. They wouldn't handle chunks of anything flowing through them very well.
  5. In combination with something like this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CDUQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lowes.com%2Fpd_315652-60084-FP45_0__&ei=EaDkUcPcGoa_OamHgcAJ&usg=AFQjCNHO4cUMxLXPNbHEcrh-JODsVDaMuA&sig2=P7NYf_p7MSZ7G5vPPXzs9A&bvm=bv.48705608,d.ZWU I think I can rig it up to work as a nitrate filter in the tanks themselves. It's worth a try. In salt, we do it through a bio reactor filled with the polymer in a sump. I don't see why it wouldn't work in fresh. You need the pellets and a reactor (fancy name for a plastic cylinder) and a pump to tumble them with. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/2181/
  6. Salt is soluble in water, so it might be calcium you are dealing with. Calcium build up is very common in salt water tanks in the form of coraline algae and the like. If that's the case, you'll need to soak it in a solution of vinegar and water to dissolve the calcium. It's best if the filter is running when you do it. You may need to brush off what you can see when you're done, because it is tough stuff.
  7. Oh, I forgot about the regeneration. Try this one in that case, which can be regenerated with salt: http://www.filterwater.com/ps-350-7-inline-nitrate-removal-cartridge.aspx They're pretty slow, looks like .5 gallons per minute.
  8. Chris, I completely forgot about the flat rate shipping. Could you modify the ad on here and else with that? I think it's a huge selling point! Great idea! The ad was looking a bit stale for some reason .
  9. I had done some research on this a few months ago when you were ordering them from the UK. I wasn't able to find a wholesaler at the time, but I did find a few people selling similar products. Here is one that seems reasonably priced: http://www.theperfectwater.com/Nitrate-removal-filter-Inline.html These use 1/4" quick connect lines, which you can get an adapter to garden hose size for a couple of dollars.
  10. We've got Lionhead on sale for $10.99 right now, and with out $4.99 flat rate shipping (within lower 48 states) you're looking at $15.98 if that is all you purchase. If you purchase more than one item, the shipping remains the same!
  11. I'm not sure if it's common knowledge, but Aquarank is owned by Aquabid. It's a promotional tool for them. So if bid goes down, so does rank . The game is that you can vie for any spot you want, but #1 is always Aquabid. This gets 1000's of links back to Aquabid and they are promoted every day by almost every fish site unknowingly. http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/results.jsp?domain=aquarank.com
  12. The expiration date is embossed on the seal at the top of the bag. Unfortunately, it gets ripped off when you open it. Jars have the expiration on the bottom of the jar on a small sticker. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have regarding Repashy Superfoods . I can be reached directly at chris@tastyworms.com.
  13. BAD ROBOT Awesome! Might need to make an order, as I have a tank full of fish with POSSIBLY signs of flukes right now. Will definitely order it in the future, though! Can you get the powdered prime (seachem safe), too? I think I was mistaken about the powdered Prazi, I will keep looking. The Safe will be here next Thursday in 2.2 lbs containers.

Can you get the powdered prime (seachem safe), too? Yes, can definitely get Safe as well. I understand emergencies are emergencies . I will try to have it stocked for everyone in the next week.
