I want to fill up my wallet before I go up there. I visit the website the whole time, it could turn out to be a full day trip!!. The manager in my LFS wants to go with me, It might give him some ideas. I think we'd all love more tanks, I would, if I could sneak it in the house without the other half noticing...haha.
I've had tanks on and off since I was a young kid, goldfish in a tank too small. Only being serious about it for about 5yrs now. God bless the internet and AA!!!

In seahorse for every 25€ you spend u get a stamp collect 10 and u get 50€ to spend on fish or plants. I had two full cards that I built up for awhile and month ago they had really nice L014 plecos 75€ each I got two for 50€ with my stamps once you start you wil be filling books of stamps in no time!!

That's a great deal. So if I bought a filter for 250+, basically I can get 50e worth of fish or plants??

I find it's sometimes cheaper to buy equipment/supplies from the US and get it shipped over, Prime/Purigen/Matrix/De-Nitrate/New Life Spectrum Food(I know Seahorse has this now).....

Ye I started buying stress coat 1.9llitre 24€ delivered from eBay as opposed 23.49€ 475ml in shop
What are them other products you listed for? Prime I heard of I was told not to use it in a planted tank it removes some of nutrients needed for plants?
