I noticed on one of the Q & A on the site that the question was 8 months old, and the answer was 7 months old. That's a one month turn around time. I'm gonna ask my LFS tomorrow when I go get my water tested.

Of course, it makes you wonder whose 'daylight' they are refering to.
I was responding to this, lol. For some reason I didn't get an e-mail notification to your post.

Did you get any plants?

Someone pointed out that Rosey's like a slightly cooler water temp, so I have ruled them out.

I'm not even sure I want barbs anymore, I like the plants so much.

Stocking gets even trickier with plants in the mix.

How big were the balas? I mean, how big were the largest?

Mine are puny.

I like that fake driftwood in your 6 gallon.

Yeah, it's addictive. There's so many cool fish, but you can only put so many in a tank, so you need another tank, and another tank....

No more tanks for us though!! We have drawn the line, lol.

75 is a big tank, you'll have a lot of fun planting and stocking that.
