Python works good. But I use the "feeding the cichlids" method

I scrape off the eggs and put them in the cich. tank, they go nuts. It doesn't happen often though, I usually top off the tanks every week

Hmmm, I'm on the look out for MTS, too bad the weather is so cold, I'd hit you up for some.

Dragon, guess what, I just happen to have a ton of them too (Thanks Devil lol) and I have heat packs! I can send you some if you would like, as an exchange for the duckweed? Let me know! (I think you will have to send me your addy again though...)
I don't keep my water all the way to the top, my floor is a little too bouncy lol. And if I was to keep it full, I would have to put water in it every single day since it is SO dry here right now!

Dk what heat packs do you use?


I got Grabber brand ULTRA warmers rated at 24+ hours tested to last 27 in a insulated box the heat stays above 75 for 8 days.

lesser duckweed? have fun, I like it but I like my water lettuce better.
