  1. Got a small flat rate box completely stuffed with the live plant crinium yesterday! Much much more than I expected, especially sine they so generously sent these plants for just cost of shipping! Thank you again Flipper, will put them to good use ^^
  2. A few weeks ago I dropped the cheapo light that came with my 40B into the water. :yilkes I gave it a few days before turning it back on and within a few minutes the room smelled like smoke and the light was shut off. So..... Time for a new light? The 125 still has the fixture I used before we upgraded. It's a decent light, and I'm lazy, cheap, and not totally sure what I'd want in its place since it is only 48" long and leaves some areas dark. So I decided to let the broken 40B light be an opportunity for experimentation. Anyway, started looking around over the weekend. There was no method to my purchase. I saw this, it had a low profile, good reviews, and came from a brand I recognized. So I bought a 36" Finnex "Stingray." It is smaller than I thought it'd be! very sleek. it definitely puts off a ton of light, and easily lights up a tall and deep tank. BUT, it is very purpley blue. Unlike some LED lights that have a moonlight setting, you cannot turn the blue off. With my regular t5ho lighting: (yes these pictures are awful) with the Finnex: But! I didn't buy it for the 125. I bought it for my daughter's purple fish tank. And it is fabulous. Bottom line. Would I recommend this light? Yes! But my enthusiasm comes with a disclaimer! I recommend it if you don't mind a blue hue. I DO mind a blue hue in the 125, I guess I prefer a more natural-y light in there. But otherwise, it's a yes. Hope this was at least a little bit helpful, to someone out there.
  3. Guess what! It's Review Time! A couple weeks ago I bought a piece of driftwood from http://www.ebay.com/usr/surfsnow123 This is the piece http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODcxWDExODI=/z/XOcAAOxydgZTIOYl/$_57.JPG Unfortunately the piece arrived broken in half, which was an easy fix with some silicone. I contacted the seller and was immediately offered an apology along with either a full refund or a free piece of wood plus free shipping. Of course I picked the free item The wood was as dry as a bone, and it took a while for it to soak and stay at the bottom. Initially I had to place a couple large river rocks on top of the slate, but now after a week and a half in the tank, the wood stays in place on its own. The rocks won't stay in place though, because my fish all think they are interior decorators. "THIS ROCK DOES NOT GO THERE!" The wood also does not affect the pH at all. After arrival I boiled it to remove tannins, but the water barely got a yellow tint. Overall, even with the mishap during shipping, I was very pleased, especially considering how accommodating surfsnow123 was when I told him about the damage. The seller does not have a ton of pieces at a time, but adds new pieces to his listing every week, and I like that there are many "goldfish-safe" pieces without sharp edges, which is something I can't seem to find at any of the LFS around here. I will be giving a positive review and 5 stars on anything. Item was as described (minus the shipping accident), shipping was fast, customer service fantastic, great quality driftwood. This is my wood in the tank, and you can see a couple of the tall anubias I got from suntsova. This here is a beautiful piece he currently has up for sale. It would look fantastic as a center piece in someone's tank! The only reason I did not pick this as my free item is that I was looking for a longer piece of wood. http://www.ebay.com/itm/DRIFTWOOD-Art-Aquarium-mounted-on-slate-Clark-Fork-River-Unique-And-Different-/121336338324?pt=Decorations&hash=item1c40359794 And this is the free item I will receive some time next week. It is 22" long
  4. Just thought I'd share a great source to purchase live aquarium plants from. For the size, they're not necessarily for goldfish tanks particularly if your fish like salad bars, but they are great quality and size bunches for planted tanks. I recently purchased two bunches of peal grass to go in my betta tank, and the quality is great, and the packaging keeps them fresh. I had not one brown leaf in the whole bunch, and the sizes for price are quite generous amounts. The plant has been in the tank for over two weeks, and has started to sprout back after dying off a little. I've also just put in an order for some frogbit and mixed duckweed and azolla. A good thing about this seller is that they will post specifically to avoid stagnant transit on weekends, so your plants will arrive fresh. Just please take note of the Quarantine laws for certain plant species before purchasing- particularly in WA and Tasmania. Overall, very reasonable pricings, generous amounts, fast shipping, and great quality! http://myworld.ebay.com.au/z-aquatics?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
  5. As posted as my status a little while ago, I had purchased a bunch of anubias barteri var. nana from ebay, and they just arrived. I have not been this excited over plants in quite a while. The plants arrived in excellent condition, packed securely, not a single one dead even though they were shipped by standard mail from Taiwan, which took only one week. The deal was for 14 plants + 6 free, although I have actually received 8 free - a total of 22 plants for the price of $ 36.99 (!!!!!) and free shipping (!!!!!), so each plant cost me an average of less than $ 1.70 Anyway, I am so impressed by the quality and size of these plants, I took photos of some of the smallest and some of the largest ones, and you will see that even the small ones are quite impressive. I had to prune only 9 leaves total from all these plants together. Each plant has on average 7-9 leaves. The biggest one has 11 leaves, the smallest 4. This is the only plant with a brown spot on an otherwise healthy leaf. This is the plant with the lowest number of leaves, but is surely not a small plant at 6" from one end to the other. A huge pile of plants This is the deal on ebay. In my opinion absolutely worth it. Needless to say, he is going to get one excellent review http://www.ebay.com/...=item20b73f797b

  7. I recently bought some anubias from an ebay store. The plants arrived today and I am rather satisfied with what I got. First off though, of course I am not going to compare the quality of the plants with the quality you get at Plantedaquariumscentral, but considered the difference in price and free shipping, I am absolutely fine with the fact that during the rather long shipping time from Malaysia (9 days in transit) a few leaves were partially yellow. I would post photos, but my camera tends to bring out yellow tones 10x more saturated than they really are, and the plants look very yellow in the pictures. Anyway, this is the store I bought at http://stores.ebay.com/aquaticmagic And these the plants I purchased: 2x anubias lanceolata http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a473eee4c They came at about 4" height, each with about 6-8 leaves 3x anubias broad leaf http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a486a9766 They came at about 2.5" height, each with 9-11 leaves For all five plants I payed only $ 22.50, and as said free shipping. That is a great deal even considering the fact that I will have to clip off a few leaves. I'll definitely buy plants there again, I am already eying some barteri gold and barteri nana petite
