they are there even i thought they didnt have any until i asked..they were rite under my nose..i was like jeez we walked by them so many times..i was expecting a different package or setup or something.

i want to heavily plant my tank..considering how much the plants cost it will take a while.not to mention 1 of my 10 has tons of algae i cant seem to get rid of..grr...the snails and oto arent even keeping up..now im doing more water changes...if i had the room id get a 50 and surly make a heavy planter out of it...especially going with an asian theme..i probably could get some swords pretty cheap.my dads ex wife is from brazil.so her family is there and i know them.could ask them to mail me a lot haha..but dont wana bother them or anything..

id becareful putting male and females in divided tank.from what i heard it can drive the males crazy etc...i was gonna do it..but since i got this other 10..i just went with the 2 males and can make another divider if i want to add another male....id surly go with 1/3 pacing and add 3 males..u can do a different theme on each part.as i plan to do..once i get the money..i only have a few live plants on each side rite now and 1 decor on 1 side..plus i made them resting leaves i put up high on the side...

surly do a male divided.if u got a second 10 make that ur female divided or sorority,im also going to make my own fake plants with some fake leaves i fount out in the garbage.its what i made the little hammocks with for my 2 males..

no problem at all..jut dont want u spending hours searching or anything ;)

i only got 1 10 atm =\ this time ima go to wm and ask someone to find a the product number -.-

i planned on making males divided and using 2 or 3 sheets so they cant see each other :) but i only got one 10 :c do u have your algae one near a window or something? ik my last 10g i had near a window and i had one hell of a time with algae lol maybe ill ignore this guy who wanted a trade dragon for pleco. and try get a otto? my lps dnt have otto only albino corys and "snails" along with plecos ofcourse..:\

i may just get 2 more small girls and add them to this unfinished tank and see how they act.. if hey r fine let them be.. if not put them in a divided tank :\

u didnt find it at walmart?

i was going to take my other sheet of canvas and put it in with the other so they males couldnt see each other.but they are fine.so im like well ill make another divider in case i need or want to divide my other 10....none of my tanks r near a window.in fact the algae 1 is the furthest..

i think otos would be a lot better especially for small tanks.but ive learned that mystery snails eat up algae very fast compared to otos..cory would work.of course u need a group of them,5 or more...snails are great.better than i thought.

that would work.of course try to find the least aggressive if possible..now that i have 2 10's...i can divide them up a few more times and add a few more if i wanted plus my hospital tanks as well..

they arent in school supplies.they are in the ection where they sell bubble wrap and other office supplies..they are hard to find bcuz of how they r displaying.they look like they are in a package like regular report covers..it took me a while to find.even though i kept walking rite by them.even looking at them.here is a link to what the look like.its from walmart itself.the exact kind i have..

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sliding-Ba...-Pack/17480402

that actually cheap for corys compared to here.i think they r 6 bucks each..but even at 3 dollars.still expensive.the last time i checked oto were on sale for 1.30...my snails cost me 3 bucks each..mystery snails/nerite..they do a great job though..apple snails get huge..some snails r a-sexual so they will reproduce fast.mine havent.but mine arent a-sexual..

oh poor guy :( culd always divide and get more if u decide too..good thing about bigger tanks :)

i got mine at petsmart..they r pretty good little fish.dont get big.easy to take care of..the filter should be fine instead of an air pump.as long as there isnt a thousand of them in a small tank.or u can stand there and use a straw to blow bubbles in the tank ;) ab would be a good place to check..if i had the money id order from there.especially some plants..

that guy is dumb.they do carry it.u can go to wm.com and check to see if its in stock at ur wm..thats what i did..its just not something that can easily be fount or is something that i looked for a lot..took me an hour to find it.but most of the time was spent in school supply section.then it hit me in the last 15 minutes to check in office supplies.boom.hit me like a brick wall as soon as i seen it..

dont shoot urself.shoot the employee ;) for being dumb

thats way too many.walmart has like a 50 pack for around 18 dollars.something like that..i checked online when i fount the image for u earlier..did u give them the item number?they can use the sapphires there to check the system and see if they have in stock..i know better.worked at target,and toys r us for 3 years.so i know how all that works.

heck u have the space to home him when he is bigger.i was originally going to just give mine away once he was too big for the tank.and go get another.until i learned about otos...

whats ur postal code?ill search walmart for those spines and even search nearby pet stores for the otos if u like..

that is good news :) atleast something good is coming out of all this ;)
