Plants in Remote Areas by About Dakota
Right now I live in Bismarck, North Dakota, for now, and I must admit there isn't much of a market for live aquatic plants. I was wondering of some good way to buy them long distance, and what shipping methods would be best. Thanks in advance. AD

Flourite Alert for other beginners 8^) by Dan Norgard
I just added Flourite to my 29 and 10 gallon freshwater...I learned from the 29 gallon that when Seachem says the Flourite might require rinsing you should read it as 'flooding'. Rinsing just didn't cut it. The 29 now looks like Mars during a sandstorm. I did the 10g by putting the Flourite in...

Hello everyone. I am brand new to the newsgroup and do not (yet) have a planted tank although I currently have several non-planted tanks. It started a few years ago when my wife suggested my then three-year-old daughter would like "a fish." She of course meant a goldfish in a bowl. Being the...
