Fish Buddy Program
Well I've posted this a few months back.

I created a program to setup fish tanks for families that can't afford to buy them.

Anyways, since then I have had several donations of filters, tanks, fish and more.
I have a full tank setup i have to pick up this weekend, along with more filters.

Anyways I'm looking for a few people who want to help me put together a pamphlet of basic fish care needs. IF the admin team here is okay with it, I would like to put TFK info on the pamphlet I hand out. I'll pm you all about that.

I'm also working with other business to help match donations. A few seemed interested, others shot it down. Which is what I expected.

Anyways if you are interested in providing some info for the pamphlet let me know.
I'll have to start with nothing and go from there.

As for fish we give out, Community freshwater (danio's/minnows, tetras, mollies, platy, swordtails, etc) as well as Betta's... and anything else I can breed or have donated that isn't a large fish. Also looking into algae eaters, snails, and other fun stuff.

Oh I'm also looking to setup a plant growing tank... Looking for ideas on what works the best.
They'll grow in 55 gal plastic food grade drums... lol, I can get triple washed/steam cleaned ones for 15 or 20 bucks each, more I buy cheaper they get. Need to know what kind of bulb and clamp lighting system to buy for it.

I don't think I'll put a HOB or filter on it, as there will be so many plants, a few female betta's would be fine. But would need some info on setting DIY CO2 system for it, so suggestions would help on that.

Until later, peace out
