BUT if your local petsmart or petco has similar plants, why not get those/QT them for a few weeks? Much cheaper...and i believe the company changes quite alot for shipping.

i would have to drive half an hour to get to the nearest petco is all. like 35 minutes to the nearest petsmart. and my LPS doesn't have a very good selection. I got my red wendtiis there. one appears to be thriving, the other looks like its surviving.

my light is a 17 watt ~full spectrum~ thingie. i think that means low light, right?

sakura- they have a discount for forum members or something, right? i know you gave me a code once.

17 watts for a 29gal. Oh yeah. That's real low light. That's not even 2 watts a gallon. Heck, that's not even 1 watt a gallon (oooh, look who can do advanced math!)

Another one of my assassins might be dead too !! Sakura! I don't know what it is. Sorry for your assassin loss. 2 of mine have grown little algae fuzzies on their shells. Puts me down to 6 :<
They look so cute slurping on bloodworms!

naturally a baby betta. They had them hidden in their own display rack.
I would order that plant package. Petco has horrible plants, the tube ones are like not even aquatic and the ones that have in a tank look either dead or totally covered with black stuff.

Poor thing had an ammonia level that was bordering on dark green. I would guess its between 2.0-4.0.I lost the little chart thing so not sure of the exact level but i kinda have the chart memorized by now.

My sister removed my bedroom screen and handed it to me via the window since my mother was sitting right next to the door.



But they have the $1/gallon sale till 7/21
