Waaayyyy far away from that lol. I'm in Charlotte and unless I can get someone to drive me all the way out there 2x a month then it's not an option. I found one in the back of the fish magazine, just need to send an email and pay and I'm in. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Thanks for the listings guys! Unfortunately the link that you provided, Theresa, is out of date That's okay though, it shouldn't be hard to find one. And who said I can't start my own? High school does have one, not an aquarium club but it is an ichthyology class that has weekly meets.

Anyway, made a trip to the LFS today, saw some dwarf otocinclus, cool little guys but IMO $35 a piece........holy cow, more than I make in a month! I did manage to spend $14 on downoi, if it grows it was a good investment. If not........ well, I can't help it

Talked fish with a nice person at work. She listens for about 3 min about 1x per month and that is about the extent of it, lol.

I have started thinking the little Cories I have been under the impression were Habrosus are not salt and pepper Cories but the MUCH larger Peppered Cories aka Corydoras paleatus!!! So far the one is about 2.5 inches - about an inch larger than the Habrosus! With a few others all around 2"... BIG disappointment

That's alright, I will just throw them into the big tank with the Bronze and Green and one 3.5 inch "Cory" that also looks like a Peppered Cory only is an inch larger than they are supposed to be. Will have to get a few pics this week and post them in an ID thread to see what they might be. I feel like I should be in Texas with everything growing bigger, lol.

Need to find a new local home for my very large mouth Spotted Raphael Cat. Half my Cardinals and Green Neons are missing since I put him back into the tank another frowny face For both getting him a new home and for eating my pretty fish.

Added a large piece of driftwood from a local river, took out my last artificial decoration and rescaped the left side of the tank. My driftwood was water logged and sinking before, but it dried out some so I buried one end and I'll wait for the rest to sink again. I'll spread some plants around when that happens. Before and after attached. The only thing I don't like about sand is how cloudy the water gets when I'm messing in the tank, but it settles down in a couple hours.

Pulled out maybe 120+ MTS from the tanks and a bucket of recently removed substrate. Mailed them off.

Stirred up a mess in my 6.6G original Edge tank - changed the prefilter sponge and did a 2G then a 1.5G pwc.

Did a 2G pwc in the 15G.
