Wet Spot does ship, just go to their website (Home ) and email them. Their prices online are actually cheaper than if you walk into the store.

What temp will you be keeping the tank at? You should have enough current if you're keeping them nice and cool, but if you're at the upper end of their temperature range you really need to go overboard on the powerheads and current (ie: as close to a full riverbed manifold setup as you can) or they just randomly die on you after 6 months or so.

And I won't be using a heater unless it is absolutely needed.

Here's a pick of my guy on the smooth rock. Also likes a smooth piece of driftwood!

That seems a fair price around here. It would be nice to see a group of maybe 4-6.

Which kind are you looking at getting?

My clubmember has at least 2 species in a 60g with 2 powerheads and over filtration , live plants and lots of rocks. Her Siwellias are captive bred.

She puts rocks in a bowl of water in the sun to grow Algae for them. Plus I got her started on Rapashy gel food. It's dry powder that you add water to and you end up with gel food. Great for them and they LOVE it !!

Did rocks like that before long ago and forgot about that. I used a clear jar with some house plant starts in the sunshine of the kitchen window, and used tank water for the water.

Great ideas for mine too, I love this place!!!
