OK if you can't afford good equipment maybe you should have 5 good tanks instead of 10 half ass tanks. I think this is fish hoarding personally. Just my opinion.

I simply refuse to pay $200+ per tank to upgrade to submersible heaters.

Seriously? $200. per tank? Where do you live? I know that equipment is expensive but that seems like a lot. I got this one http://www.drsfostersmith.com/fish-s...ps/c/3578/3743 I am with you, I wouldn't pay anywhere near $200. for a heater per tank. It is a costly hobby and changes sometimes need to be made one or two things at a time. Sounds like you are working to make those changes for the fish which is wonderful.

There are so many companies out there that sell good quality products for far less then some of the big box fish stores. Hope you can find something that will work for your needs.

This is not the way for a new member to comment on a thread..please I kindly ask you not to post like that.

It is not about whether the person can afford equipment or not, fact is the equipment works for the tank, if it was a heater that had to be submerged and wasnt then that is a different story..absolutely nothing wrong with having a low water line, I have my 75g tank about 2 inches below the rim.

If I had the room I would have a fish room as well, I would love to have species tanks spread over with a diverse range of fish and lots to admire and enjoy.

Pics 1-2 are again just opening the box
Pic 3 -Apistagramma Cacaoides
Pic 4- 100 8x18" bags
Pic 6 - 2 Striped Peacock eels. (1 from the first shipment jumped out of tank.. still cant find it Went to order another one and they only had 2 left so I got them both.)
Pic 7 and 8- Madagascar lace plant. Sorry the quality on those was junk.I dont know if we'll be able to keep this one alive but figured we'd give it a try.
Pic 9 - 2 mats of Java Fern. I figure there are around 20 plants per mat.
Pic 10 - 5x windelov java fern
Pic 11 - 5x Crypt Spiralis
Pic 12 - 5x Narrow leaf microsword
Pic 13 - 7 Anubias Hastifolia. After reading some of the previous comments on this thread and doing some research these plants may work in my cichlid tanks, so we'll have to see what happens.
Pic 5 - 6 male guppies 12 females. There were a couple extra of each over that.

Since both shipments are new, I dont want to say who at this point. Everything looks great at this point but I'd like to see if everything is still good in a couple weeks.

They only ship to Canada however but if you notice the tags on the plants they order all from Florida Aquatic Nurseries.

Wait... this isn't facebook lol. Some local people I dont want to see who I get my fish stuff from lol.

The aFISHionados - Spencer Jack - Cichlaholic.com Click on fish list, then like I said he only ships to Canada. His stock is changing frequently though so you have to act fairly quick to make sure he still has what you want.

Really wishing he had water sprite in though :X
