I snagged mine with a stand for $40. Couldn't pass it up, I didn't even need it but I couldn't ignore the deal! But I love how it turned out my plants and rams are awesome

Yeah they really stand out and they are doing great. Planted tanks can be a pain but once you find that equilibrium your set and growth just explodes. I started with just concentrating on plants and then I saw a german ram for the first time and was like wow! Gotta have!!!!

I want to get into plants but I'd rather buy fish than lights and co2 and stuff.

Yeah but if you buy smart you won't make the costly mistakes. It's costly up front but maintenance is no sweat. You could always stay low tech as well but I personally don't think it's as much fun as high tech

I'm sure all my dwarfs would love it. I've got aqueon LED with a bunch of extra bulbs. It should be able to handle some plants alright. I picked it up for $8 and the extras for $2. The java moss in that tank is growing so fast! And the panduro love it.

Agreed, you will only see them get real friendly when they wana spawn. Usually the male will chase the female. Chin up, happens to everyone

Well my golds are from "blank" and my first Germans were from Joe gargas on aquabid. They were the only ones from his stock that survived. I even ordered golds from him and all 5 kicked the bucket on me in two weeks. So clearly the "blanks" golds are bred with some feist! Haha
