I did before and he does but shipping in the winter is still risky. Summer not as bad:)

You all spooked me enough today that I went and got the level to check all my tanks if they still sit level now Thankfully nothing has moved

yeah it was rather alarming....I panicked and immediately took action!!

I can't really get over how quiet my canister is....I find myself constantly walking over to see if its even running!!

My next plan is to get some more fish for this sucker!

I currently have:
6 black neon tetras
4 giant danios
5 bronze cory cat fish
3 black skirt tetras (def. getting three more)
5 seprae tetras (def getting maybe two more)

any suggestions? I was thinking of flooding the tank with some neon tetras..like 20 more of them....I also wanna pick up something else...maybe some diamond tetras also..

hmm...

LMAO lemme guess you had a HOB before right?

Thank god you were home thou and not on a 4 weeks trip to the Caribbeans!

Do you have any fin nipping issues with the Seprae there yet?

I'd def def def stock them cory's up to like 10 or so given your tank size

One large school of whatever fish you choose just always looks cool in tanks. I once seen a 75g set up that only had 2 fish in it: Cory cats and a school of Cardinal.......That gave "school" a whole new meaning the day I seen that 75g fully stocked with cardinals only there - Amazingggggg that was

the serpaes haven't really bothered anybody....they just float around and mind their own business!!!

yeah I had two HOB before.....haha

I'm thinking abot going with like, 2 or 3 huge shoals of fish....maybe a boatload of neons (although my pH is alittle high for them, my black neons are doing fantastic)

hmmm.....off to the drawing board!

I"m excited for those plants to grow and have two/three huge shoals of fish!

I love, love, love my Cardinal Tetras. I have 11 right now in my 55g and want more. They are so fun to watch school, and they bring such beautiful color to the tank!

I *think* if he's saying his pH is already too high for Neon's then its def gonna be too high for Cardinals

True Natalie. I guess I was more looking at his comment regarding his black neons doing fantastic. Regardless, your tank will look fabulous with a couple large shoals of fish, Johnny!

Now Natalie, get off the computer and go get those PUFFERS! HAHA!
