I just can't buy rock online. I have to touch them. Spin them around a scrutinize them. I wander around the local building material/landscaping supply stores. Armed with my smartphone to research mineral content of the ones I like.

However I did buy that Kaleidoscope Jasper Agate online for the nursery. We don't have anywhere local that carries cut rock that is rough or polished.

I hope they arrive and you are thrilled with them.

That's because I live dangerously (said the person who has purchased fish only five times in the last five years, QTs everything 1-2 weeks minimum, and does hour long drip acclimations).

I hope so as well. I'll post a review on my Planted tank thread.

I left anything that was fluffy in the tank to withstand treatment

PWC and vacuum on the nursery tank. Nail biter though with all those shrimplettes bobbing around.

Made this craft I saw online

It's meant to be a Betta tank but I don't think it could hold anything bigger than a couple of shrimp or a plant Click image for larger version

A Betta wouldn't be able to turn around, let alone live for long

I know I've read somewhere that a .25 reading in ammonia could be an artifact of Prime dosing.

I used to keep plants and pink ramshorn snails in a vase on the table. Fun to watch.
