  1. If you qualify for the shirt, please make sure to give Koko your full name and phone number (especially if you are outside of the US, customs requires). You won't be spammed, I promise! It's just for delivery issues that might arise. If you want notification of the shipment, also include your email address.
  2. Used to happen to mine too. For me, it was that the little basket inside was riding up and pushing the lid off. I started putting my fish food jar on top of it and problem solved.
  3. We sell extension tubes for AquaClear filters, if someone has both, maybe they can see if they might be compatible with the Aqueon? http://tastyworms.com/aquaclear-20-30-50-extension-tube-a625.html http://tastyworms.com/aquaclear-70-110-extension-tube-a627.html Aqueon doesn't sell an extension tube per say, but they do sell replacement parts. You can contact them directly to find out where to order. It doesn't look like they nest like Aquaclear intakes, so I'm not sure you could buy an extra part and just plug them together. But I'm sure you could hacksaw a piece off and join them somehow, maybe epoxy or epoxy putty.
  4. Chris, That sounds like a great deal! How many ounces is the bag? 12.3oz . Incidentally, I use Prime as well, it can be a great deal. Especially if you're just buying 1 item. Prime prices are on average higher than non-prime prices. So when you want to buy 3 items rather than 1, you can usually find it somewhere else cheaper. Competition is pretty stiff on fish food and I know short term price is the deciding factor. But I humbly request that you give us a try if we've got it in stock. We use the proceeds to do things like sponsor forums and introduce cool new products like Repashy that the big guys don't want to take chances on.
  5. Generally filters like these require household water pressure of 50 - 75 psi. It's not about the flow in this case, but the pressure. You would need something called a booster pump which takes water of certain pressure and boosts its psi. Booster pumps are considerably more expensive than sump pumps unfortunately and are designed for mostly clean water. They wouldn't handle chunks of anything flowing through them very well.
  6. In combination with something like this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CDUQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lowes.com%2Fpd_315652-60084-FP45_0__&ei=EaDkUcPcGoa_OamHgcAJ&usg=AFQjCNHO4cUMxLXPNbHEcrh-JODsVDaMuA&sig2=P7NYf_p7MSZ7G5vPPXzs9A&bvm=bv.48705608,d.ZWU I think I can rig it up to work as a nitrate filter in the tanks themselves. It's worth a try. In salt, we do it through a bio reactor filled with the polymer in a sump. I don't see why it wouldn't work in fresh. You need the pellets and a reactor (fancy name for a plastic cylinder) and a pump to tumble them with. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/2181/
  7. Salt is soluble in water, so it might be calcium you are dealing with. Calcium build up is very common in salt water tanks in the form of coraline algae and the like. If that's the case, you'll need to soak it in a solution of vinegar and water to dissolve the calcium. It's best if the filter is running when you do it. You may need to brush off what you can see when you're done, because it is tough stuff.
  8. Oh, I forgot about the regeneration. Try this one in that case, which can be regenerated with salt: http://www.filterwater.com/ps-350-7-inline-nitrate-removal-cartridge.aspx They're pretty slow, looks like .5 gallons per minute.
  9. Chris, I completely forgot about the flat rate shipping. Could you modify the ad on here and else with that? I think it's a huge selling point! Great idea! The ad was looking a bit stale for some reason .
  10. I had done some research on this a few months ago when you were ordering them from the UK. I wasn't able to find a wholesaler at the time, but I did find a few people selling similar products. Here is one that seems reasonably priced: http://www.theperfectwater.com/Nitrate-removal-filter-Inline.html These use 1/4" quick connect lines, which you can get an adapter to garden hose size for a couple of dollars.
  11. We've got Lionhead on sale for $10.99 right now, and with out $4.99 flat rate shipping (within lower 48 states) you're looking at $15.98 if that is all you purchase. If you purchase more than one item, the shipping remains the same!
  12. I'm not sure if it's common knowledge, but Aquarank is owned by Aquabid. It's a promotional tool for them. So if bid goes down, so does rank . The game is that you can vie for any spot you want, but #1 is always Aquabid. This gets 1000's of links back to Aquabid and they are promoted every day by almost every fish site unknowingly. http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/results.jsp?domain=aquarank.com
  13. The expiration date is embossed on the seal at the top of the bag. Unfortunately, it gets ripped off when you open it. Jars have the expiration on the bottom of the jar on a small sticker. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have regarding Repashy Superfoods . I can be reached directly at chris@tastyworms.com.
  14. Thank you for the great response everyone. I've got a couple more samples left if anyone did not request the first time around. First round of samples will be shipping out today. Everyone who requested one as of now will be receiving one.
  15. Soilent green is sometimes difficult to export because of the ingredients. That's an interesting store name... I'm sure they're a licensed reseller like us, but that's not Repashy directly from the source like the URL implies.
  16. Repashy has sent us a box of fish food samples to hand out. The only freshwater variety I have right now is Super Green. There is a new line of salt water varieties as well, if you have a salt water tank. For saltwater I have Spawn & Grow Saltwater, Reef Hunter, Reef Prowler, and Reef Scraper. If there is a product for which there is not a sample that you want to try, let me know, and I'll pass the request on to Repashy to see if they can provide in the future. Rules: US addresses only. These packages are not properly labeled for international export. Quantities are limited, so this offer is while supplies last. I will only send 1 sample per variety per person. So you can get 1 of each if you like. Please only request a sample if you have never tried the product for which you are requesting a sample. If you know someone who is on the fence about Repashy foods, please feel free to share. This offer is open to everyone, Koko's just gets first shot at it . Since not everyone on Koko's has PM ability, you may send me an email at chris@tastyworms.com, or send a pm here on Koko's. I'll need your Name and shipping address. You will not be added to any lists nor will your info be sold or saved for marketing. This offer is unfortunately only available to US and Canada residents.
  17. BAD ROBOT Awesome! Might need to make an order, as I have a tank full of fish with POSSIBLY signs of flukes right now. Will definitely order it in the future, though! Can you get the powdered prime (seachem safe), too? I think I was mistaken about the powdered Prazi, I will keep looking. The Safe will be here next Thursday in 2.2 lbs containers.
  18. Awesome! Might need to make an order, as I have a tank full of fish with POSSIBLY signs of flukes right now. Will definitely order it in the future, though! Can you get the powdered prime (seachem safe), too? Yes, can definitely get Safe as well. I understand emergencies are emergencies . I will try to have it stocked for everyone in the next week.
  19. I can get the powdered stuff. Was not sure if there was a demand for it or not .
  20. Congratulations Mernany! Gift certificate is on the way .
  21. I'm looking into getting some of these, but I concur that they are just stainless steel springs with the ends cut off and rounded. Stainless steel is stainless steel - it won't rust. Marine Grade is just marketing. Here is a similar looking spring for a few dollars: http://www.qcsupply.com/270205-wall-bracket-parts-stainless-steel-spring.html?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CLi4kO6s37YCFQcOOgod8XIASA I'm sure you could find springs even cheaper that would do that job. If you have a rotary tool you could use it to buff the sharpness off from the cut. We sell veggie clips that are less expensive and in my opinion more flexible (not just for bottom feeders). http://tastyworms.com/seaweed-veggie-clips.html
  22. The AquaClear HOB filters are designed for different ranges of tanks in mind. The main reason the flow control is there is to give the filter more flexibility than the competition. Maybe you've got goldfish and you want to overfilter. Maybe you've got a sick fish and need to slow down the intakes. Maybe you're running salt water and you're throwing algae into the filter that works better at high or low flow at filtering nitrates. Maybe you want to buy a filter that can grow with your needs (bigger tank, more fish, etc). As for the flow control not having a noticeable difference, there may be a problem with your filter. There is a little square piece that slides into place on top of the impeller that has a small track on it to offset the intake pipe. If that's not properly in place or damaged, then the flow control will not work properly.
  23. Very cool. I just got some brushes with a long piece of string that you can pull through tubing, but this seems MUCH easier. Also, it seems like it would work with a wider variety of tubing sizes than a fox tail brush. Going to contact the manufacturer and see if I can stock some of these.
