WELL I SERIOUSLY UNDERESTIMATED HOW DIFFICULT IT WOULD BE TO PUT A DIVIDER ON A PLASTIC BIN.



i put it on and let it dry for about two hours.. and then i'm like hmm, okay, that should be enough! cause most of my dividers dry in about twenty minutes.
i'm filling it up with water to put the girlies in AND IT FRIGGIN SLIDES APART.


RAHHHH

I was all ready to buy a decent sized order ($25ish), until the last step, where I had a coupon code because they messed up and forgot a part of my order.

It didnt work! RAaaaghhh! D: Now I have to wait for them to get my email and fix it.

My plant tank is so bare and sad. Do not like!! Hurry up, sweetaquaticcsss :'(

Also, for advice...

Anyone know where I can get a nerite/MTS and NOT have to pay out my bum for shipping?
yay! it's been too long since I've made laser noises in my head, lol

Sounds like we need a This Old Tank show for DIYers with fish. From building our own tank stands, to dividers and baffles, the show could teach us how to do it all in our own garage.

Hey everyone! I missed you guys.

I usually go through www.plantedaquariumscentral.com or www.bobstropcialplants.com but I haven't been happy with Bob's lately and PAC is super duper expensive although she has amazing plants and sends extra.
Let's see.. Ill copy and paste my order/prices:

1 ea. Java Fern (Microsorium Pteropus) $2.50 2 ea. Vallisneria Asiatica Var. Biwaensis (Corkscrew Val) $2.00 1 ea. Java Moss (Vesicularia Dubyana) $3.00 1 ea. Sagittaria Subulata (Dwarf) $0.60 1 ea. Micromeria brownei (Creeping Charlie) $1.50 1 ea. Echinodorus Bleheri (Amazon Sword) SM $1.50 1 ea. Anacharis (Egeria Densa) $1.35 1 ea. Echinodorus Tenellus (Narrow Leaf Chain Sword) $1.00 1 ea. Bacopa Monnieri $1.35 1 ea. Amazon Frogbit (Limnobium Laevigatum) $1.00 $15.80
Sub-Total:

$7.70
United States Postal Service (Priority Mail (2 - 3 days)):

-$2.50
Discount Coupon: estus :

$21.00


They bumped up my coupon code from $1 to $2.50... Eee! <3 I was really happy about that. I've ordered a few times and always suggest them, so I almost feel loyal.

They do a great job and their plants are truly beautiful.

I ordered from bob's tropical plants and was VERY UNHAPPY.

I bought a rather expensive fern and this is what I got:
2011-02-14 20.56.16.jpg

Even after about a year and a LOT of tlc, its pretty much dead, un saveable. All of my plants were that way. Unacceptable!

I got, for half the price, a fern from sweet and its GIANT, lush and happy.

Never again! D: Though he did send me 2 nerites instead of one, and his livestock is wonderful...


If you want a lot for a little, get one of their water sprites... omfg, its about a foot long and super healthy, we got aat least 50+ new babies from it and they're growing really nice, floating and planted :D

Their bunch plants are great, too :) I like buying their wisteria, you get a lot for a good price (6-8 stems in a bunch)
