  1. So I was recently going through the Home Depot website and decided to try searching "seiryu stone", I came up with these results: Home Depot seems to be selling the bulk amounts of stones that Lowes was, although from what I can tell some of them are a bit more expensive. I've also noticed them selling other hardscape such as ohko/dragon stone as well as others. If you search "lifegard" on the Home Depot website you get a bunch of options in terms of hardscape for pretty good prices. Hope this helps!
  2. Hi, so I was wondering if it would be dangerous, or hurt a hillstream loach if I were to put ohko/dragon stone into an aquarium since the edges are sharp and they might try getting algae from the rock? I've seen some people saying it's fine to put kuhli loaches with ohko stone, and the two species seem share the same behaviour of scavenging around on the bottom from what I've seen on YouTube? Thanks!
  3. Hello all! I have a 100g tall aquarium (35"H) and would love to have a few large dragon stones in combination with others, but I am having trouble finding places that sell them large enough (16"+). Do you have any suggestions or ideally know of places that allow you to look at them in person? Thanks for any help 🙂
  4. Good afternoon fellow Nerms! I have a quick question as I begin to set up my 10 gallon tank for my halfmoon Betta, Sakura. I've done some research and keep coming across conflicting answers. I was planning on using some small and medium-sized rocks to anchor some java fern and anubias to, as well as to help create a more natural-looking environment for him along with a tall, smooth piece of manzanita driftwood, and I love the look of dragon stone, especially when used with fine sand substrate. I worry, however, about it possibly ripping his fins. I wasn't sure if it would be ok since I'm only using smaller pieces at the bottom of the tank and not using big ones as center pieces like we see in those cool, fancy aquascapes. I'm also using them as "dividers" between my sand at the front of the tank and the little bit of Ecocomplete I'm using in the back of the tank for the stem plants to root in and enjoy. It's a 10 gallon column tank (don't worry, he has a coconut cave that will be suction-cupped towards the top and I'm using tall stem plants he can rest in and on as well), so I figure he won't be spending a whole lot of time at the bottom, which is going to be heavily planted around the rocks and bottom of the driftwood with different crypts and other smaller plants...Any advice?? Anyone have experience with Bettas living happily with dragon stone in their home? Or am I creating a fin rot disaster waiting to happen? I'm not dead set on dragon stone at all, I know Seiryu stone or large river rock stones would be cool, too. Totally open to suggestions as well. 😊
  5. I was cleaning my tank today, picked up one of my dragon stones and noticed it was black on the bottom.it’s not slimy. I had to scrub to get it off anyone know what that is? Harmful? Photo is attached. thank you in advance!
  6. I have wall of dragon stone I created, i stacked and crazy glued it and it looks pretty neat but my water keeps getting harder over time. I live in Washington which has soft water and I have added crush coral to keep my Ph from crashing so not sure if that has help create harder water but my water has gotten harder over time ( yes I do water changes each week). I have even in created the amount of catappa leaves to try and make the water softer. If I am reading my aquarium co op test strips right, my water hardness is getting up to the 150-300 range. I worry that its getting too hard for my betta's. I have a 20 high with a divider so i have a betta on each side. If I pull the dragon stone, is there any other stone that I can use in this tank that wont raise the hardness of the water? OR Is there anything I can use to Seal the dragon stone and be safe in the tank?
  7. Finally got the valisneria, java fern, red dwarf lily, and anubius nangi out of the rock wool and into the tank! All of the java fern was from one pot and there's even more in the quarantine tank at the moment cause I don't want to take ALL of the bacteria from the plants out just yet. I also have java moss in the quarantine but just as soon as this tank cycles and I can move the snails over, I'll be moving everything else to the display tank. The light I'm using is a Hygger 16w with an Aquaclear 50 filter, no heater because the water stays a toasty 76F without it right now. Background soon to come. Thank you Cory and coop team for such lovely, hardy plants! Also, please tell me if I have the red dwarf lily planted incorrectly, I'm just guessing at this point. 😅
