    Hmm, I haven't heard about any local aquarium clubs. Is there some forum online that I can find out about that? I really don't know any fish-keepers within the area (I know there are some, I just don't know anyone). I'll look into sweetaquatics and see how the prices are in comparison. I think I have bought a few things from them in the past.
    Thanks much!

    Sorry I keep forgetting I have to post in your visitor message section-so I copy and
    That depends on what species on the 36 plants in that package....kinda seems high to me for 36 plants...I think I paid less than $40 and I got well over 100 pants-but mostly stems with some vals and sags mixed in from sweetaquatics-but that has been a fairly long time ago.....have you check to see if you have any local aquarium clubs-even if the club isn't in your town-usually a member will be close by-not only do you save on shipping the plants are acclimated to your area a bit better-and you usually don't have to be a member of the club to buy stuff either.....

    I'm looking at getting plants for my 55 gal tank that will be a NPT. has assortment packages and the 36 plant package that I was looking at is $80. Does that price seem accurate? It seems fairly steep to me, but I have not purchased plants for this big of a tank before, I don't want to purchase too few to get the tank started with.

    Thank you!

    Hi OFL, I have been considering for quite some time now to do a NPT but haven't really known where to start. When I first decided I wanted to do it awhile back, I bought some organic potting soil but was weary of some of the additives that were in it especially after soaking it and seeing that there was ammonia in the water after it would sit.
    Do you have any suggestions or even a link that would help me get started? Thanks!

    Hey OFL,

    Could you take a look at my post about my injured female?
    I've treated her with some aquarium salt and a bit of "wound-ease" but I'm not sure if that is the way to be going about it.
    It won't let me post the link here, but it's in Diseases and Emergencies and is titled "Hmm... Hutch's interesting injury" or something like that.
    Thank you!
