WOW...Story to tell you!

Hey everyone...So today my buddy Brett calls me up saying that one of his friends has like 5 neon tetra's he's giving away because he's getting rid of all of his tank stuff. So of course I didnt think it was too much so I said ya i'll take him. He shows up at my house and I open the bucket it has a 7 inch Pleco (Not sure what kind), 4 Black Skirt Tetra's, 6 Red Eye Tetra's, and 3 Rasbora Tetra's!!!!!!!! I debated on this for a whole hour because if I wouldnt of taken them..They would of got flushed and I WOULDNT let that happen. So of course I took them...But I have to say the 7-8 inch pleco looks magnificent in my tank. I am WELL AWARE that this is way overstocked. I ( had to ) decided that I am making my water changed 30-50% Weekly. I also added a ten gallon filter too. On the good side this came with so much stuff. A bunch of decorations ( Which im not using, there fake looking ) Whole bunch of food,conditioner,melafix,ammonia gone, pH gone, pH tester, carbon, a 100 watt heater ( which i needed bad my 150 watt broke ) and a bunch of other stuff too. Also came with a WHOLE ten gallon set up with the lights hood gravel filter everything. I knew I couldnt take that in so I gave it to my neighbor...All my fish are now in my signature...YES I KNOW ITS WAY OVER STOCKED....

Ya.

~Nick, it's best to pm a fellow member your email add rather than posting it here unless you are prepared to take spams in your email account. The purpose of pm systems is just pretty obvious.:)
