  1. ^^^^^This. Everyone else be damned.
  2. I’m not sure what you mean by it helping the plants - my tank is heavily planted and you would not know where the UGF is by looking at the plant growth.
  3. I have used HOBs in conjunction with under gravel, because I like to have a lot of filtration. When I purchased my current 45, I want an under gravel for it, and the owner of the lfs scoffed at me that I was out of date with the times. ( ok, whatever…). So, I pulled the UGF out of the 30 gallon tank that I was upgrading from and put it in the 45. It doesn’t cover the entire bottom, but it does cover about 2/3 of it, with a power head to drive the turnover. And, I have a HOB in addition to that. It works great!
  4. I wholeheartedly second this! I have no idea why they declined in popularity because they are so effective.
  5. Hmmmm…. @Theplatymaster……food for thought…..
  6. It occurred to me that since I put a couple oh kuhli loaches in my 20g, I’ve not seen nearly any bladder snails. Now mind you, I did launch a snail picking campaign as well, but I’m confident there was no way I could have been that effective! Do you think the kuhli loaches had a hand in knocking their numbers down? And if so, do you think that success would translate over to the trumpet snail invasion currently assaulting my 45g? (please say yes, please say yes, please say yes……)
  7. Pretty much anything saltwater. I’ve come thisclose a couple of times, but having to purchase water stops me.
  8. Yeah, there are zero lfs’s that aren’t at least an hour from me. In the dead of winter, in western New York, looks like it will be a while before I get any more fish. I guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through you all.
  9. Anything that’s not a chain store is an hour away- at least. 😔
  10. …just found out my super awesome lfs is closing. What a bummer…
