    i need ideas

    I would scratch the fission skimmer...a quick search will show you they are a waste of money. On a 20 gal tank, the Remora Nano would be a good skimmer. Do you have a sump, what do you plan on keeping? Do you have the lights already? What 20 gal tank are you looking at...there's a long or high...

    Question on replacing stock pump on an AP 24 with a Maxijet

    Go to a local home improvement store and buy the correct size tubing. Or see if you can get a small length from a local hobbyist. Use zip ties to secure the tubing onto the MJ as well as the little outlet that goes into the display. The old tubing won't work...I tried.

    How Exactly Do I Perform Water Changes?

    Before I moved my livestock to the new tank, I had a 24g sump. I used either a MJ 400 or 600 (can't remember) that didn't push the water out so fast. I would have the 5 gal bucket sit on the counter next to the tank and run the hose straight into the tank. It takes a little while...

    aquapod 24 owners

    If you're crafty, you can make a stand. I have my current tank (26g bowfront) on a stand that my bf made. It is exactly what I needed for the tank. When I had my 24g AP, I had it on my kitchen counter, so I can't help with that. :) Here's a picture of the stand:

    HD DVD or Blue Ray

    I work in a high end home theater shop and we already bought 3 Blu Ray DVD players (Samsung) they are AMAZING! Everyone who walks in our door wants one, too bad we don't have a distributor for them! My boss bought our 3 on Amazon for $715.00 each.

    New family member !

    The one I had for a short time was neutered and descented, but he still had a pretty musky smell to him. :( I tried to bathe him in some type of ferret shampoo that supposedly made them not smell, but that didn't work. Oh well, I will have to live with just seeing them in pictures.

    My New tank(continued with pics that prove im not a liar)

    You're a sweetie blondie, and right. Just sometimes people (myself) can get a tad frustrated to see how careless people can be with this hobby. Those poor fish are suffering, and that kid thinks they are doing fine, and they will survive another couple months. Fish, frog, dog, or otherwise...its...

    New family member !

    So cute! The only way my guy would let me have a ferret is if they made them unscented. He doesn't like them. I think they are adorable though!!

    Christmas pics of the kids

    Cute basset!! I would love to get my guys santa pics, but I think Mako would be afraid of him, Magnum would be too interested in playing/tasting his beard and Maui would only be interested in the treats the people would have to get their attention...would definately make for an interesting...

    My New tank(continued with pics that prove im not a liar)

    Wow...all I can say. I'm shocked the LFS sold any of those fish to you, that place needs to be shut down for ignorance. How long have each of those fish been in that tank? Don't be surprised when that trigger starts to pick at your lion. All three of those fish need to be in a tank 10 times that...

    Stuff dying a lot!!

    I have heard that larger emeralds will eat smaller fish...that was the warning my LFS gave me when I bought one. The Nemo "remains" if there are any, may just be hidden where you cannot see them. I would make sure to keep up on the water tests, because if you have a dead fish in there somewhere...

    New Cornsnakes!

    As far as I know, people don't really sell the wild caught snakes, they just leave them in the wild...except my little brother who brings everything home. But corns are very easy to breed in captivity, and captive bred snakes normally do a lot better than the wild caught snakes, and definately...
