Lol, and if you get them from fern they are only $1 each.

Are you going to start up a public aquarium?


Can't tell if this is sarcasm...very hard to portray sarcasm over the interwebz.
I will show it to anyone who wants to see it see it, but this is a small operation compared to what fern or susankatomerit has going.

Last night, I got home from visiting cousins and grandparents in Michigan and Ohio for 18 days and had my hand in the tanks within fifteens of pulling into the driveway. I found out that you don't mess with the occies shells, or they come up out of nowhere and bite your hand. I FREAKED OUT and pulled my hand out a little too fast and nearly broke my hood. Luckily after that, I knew what to expect and moved the rock that looked like it was going to fall, and saw one of the males bite my hand and start pulling on the skin and he hung on for quite a while (like five seconds) and my brother saw that and started laughing saying that he would attack a great white shark if I put one in the tank.

I thought Shellies liked sand or PFS as their substrate.

Getting bitten like that does sound pretty startling, I've had it done to me by my rats, but never by the fish! I'd love to get some of these guys but I think my pH is WAY too low, my water comes out of the tap at 6.5.

I wish I had your water, its a lot easier to raise a pH than lower it.

I'm pretty happy with it, but its buffer is really low, when I cycled my 30 gallon I had the pH swing to above 8.8 one day, and then it was normal again the next.

You know Khiara you can always add crushed coral to one of your canister baskets and add some THR and it will raise your pH

Yes, you can do this to an HOB filter, given that there's a little bit of extra room in the filter. Smile
