    TMC have now released their plant range and while the majority of it is perhaps not the best they are doing 2m packs of clear silicone tubing which seems supple enough. i can get prices tommorow :)

    Shrimps and Snails

    char, i am guessing you treat the discus with kusuri wormer plus on a regular basis. trust me, you do not need to do this. it is marketing which is making people do it.

    Fishless cycle - not enough plants for silent - which ammoni

    could you not get some mature filter media from your LFS? i try and give anyone who comes in with a new tank some media if i can. ok so it might not cheat the system but it will certainly shorten the looooong process of it. :)
