Can you imagine a time when there wasn't FedEx, UPS or Overnight delivery?

All saltwater fish were wild-caught. St. Louis was home to the main distributor of fish, both freshwater and saltwater. If a pet store bought they had to make arrangements to have the stock flown to an airport for pickup!

Life aquatic sure has changed...mostly for the better, I think. I'm going to keep interspersing "historical" stuff as I remember it. And funny tales of my days as assistant manager of that aquatics-based pet store.

Since I know you have cycled a few tanks ... is it possible to quickly cycle a new tank by using a existing filter and media from a mature tank? If so how quickly can you add livestock and can you do it in larger quantities as long as you use Stability? Example considering 10 gallon guppy tank. How many ok for 10 all male. OR community tank with elders, couple frogs and betta
