    Where is the cheapest place to buy salt?

    I had purchased a few 160 Gallon cans a while back and stocked up on it. Is it the bad economy or do prices fly high constantly. WOW. I think I bought my stock about 10 months ago. I am now out of salt and the local pet store prices would have you in foreclosure buying their salt. a 160...

    New Puppy? What is it worth?

    Heck, when I go to pet shops, which is the WORST place to get a dog, I see them selling pet quality dogs that come out from the puppy mills and they are selling them for a thousand to 1500 bucks. You don't have the distance drive, but...all the negatives are you don't meet the breeder, you...

    New Puppy? What is it worth?

    If people start wining about the cost of a purbred dog that is well bred and you can meet the breeder and the dam and sire, then I would want to question the person - why do you have an issue with it? Is it that you think the dog isn't worth it? Is it that you don't have adequate funds to...

    New Puppy? What is it worth?

    OK, I just have to post a reply to this topic. I totally agree with the breeder and it makes total sense to me and I am used to it. First of all, you have to ask yourself why you want the dog and why you want that particular breed. A serious breeder puts lots of time and money into their dogs...

    What saltwater fish are captive bred besides clownfish

    I am curious, what saltwater fish are have been captive bred with success? I kow clownfish can and are captive bred. What else is? I aks because my hubby thinks that our dog face puffer must have been captive bred because he is so sweet and acts "domesticated". And, we also have a very tiny...

    Dogface Puffer won't eat?

    My dogface and my GF puffers, are both finicky. They both love live crayfish, but they are out of season. My GF puffer will eat freeze dried kirll and my DF puffer will eat raw shrimp. Try some mysis shrimp cubes. My guys are VERY fussy.

    Which Eheim filter for 75g Reef?

    Westwind. I am an AVID fan of all of the Eheim products. They work great, don't leak - I just love em. I think they run great for freshwater fish, however - I don't think any cansiter filter works well for saltwater tanks. Maybe if the media inside was different, like foam, bio balls etc...

    Does anyone live in Hawaii, or have made the move to HI from the lower 48 states?

    WOW, you folks on this forum are great friends. Loads of information and great advise. I can't thank you all enough who posted to my question. Vanos, do you have an example or two of websites that show the cost comparisons for cost of living between states etc. Those websites sound...

    Are all heaters created equal

    I agree, two smaller heaters on each end of the tank is better than 1 large one. Just like I also think that having two sources of filtration is better than just one running. I did a good bit of reading about the Jager-Ebo heaters. I think, at least based on what I read over the past couple...

    Does anyone live in Hawaii, or have made the move to HI from the lower 48 states?

    Yup, I think it is going to take a small fortune to make that kind of move. As for Island fever, not sure what you mean. I think I could easily live in that beauty as a way of life, however, I think I would become annoyed with all the tourists.

    Does anyone live in Hawaii, or have made the move to HI from the lower 48 states?

    Does anyone live in Hawaii, or have made the move to HI from the lower 48 states? I searched the forum first to see if this question has been asked before and I didn't see it asked. I am curious if anyone here has made a move from the lower 48 states to HI? If so, was it difficult to do? Did you...

    I feel HORRIBLE!!!

    I have, unfortunately had to put a very sick fish to it's death, so it would not suffer. It was beyond help. I learned from a local fish store, that if you take the fish and put it into a small bowl or container, using the tank water that it's in. Then drop a couple alka seltzer tabs into the...

    Does anyone have info on Harlequin Tusk

    Hi MiamiReefer. Right now, in my 90 gallon tank - my tank is overstocked when you consider the adult size of the fish housed there now. I know that and I do plan to upgrade to a 225 or 250 someday. However, for now, the size and the fish housed is ok because my DF puffer grows slowly and the...
