  1. A Christmas Poll

    Lol I know. It's never too early to get into the holiday mood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Should I?

    I know it's hard not to right now, but I wouldn't. I've been in situations like this before when it feels good to do it in the moment, but hindsight I wish I had waited because it's not exciting anymore. If you manage to get through this time period and just set the present aside, you'll probably won't think about it anymore and Christmas will be here in no time.
  3. A Christmas Poll

    For me, I try to hold out until the day after Thanksgiving to put the decorations on, but this year everybody is so anxious that we put the decorations up early. Last week we put up the indoor decoration by the fireplace first (without the tree), this week, we did the outside and finally put up the tree. I am very happy with the results. We use artificial tree since we're cheap and want to reuse the tree originally bought. For me, I would like to have presents unwrapped one by one to truely appreciate the moment and to thank whoever the gift comes from, but because there's a lot of kids in my family, we just have to go all for it. I was gonna say white light since multicolor is just tacky, but then I realized my tree is multicolor. Lol oops

    The poll says it all. What are your traditions?
  5. Algaefix did this.

    Sorry, don't mean to bring this back up again, but here's an update: I now have 4 remaining fish, 2 of my 5 past fish, and 2 ECR that are doing healthy as always. I also contacted API about the issue, and after exchanging emails with a rep, he said that although he is not able to bring the dead fish back to life, he can send me a care package. I was asked what I would like, and I told him that their root tabs and liquid fert would be nice. I only expected like a package of root tabs and a bottle of liquid fert. But what would you know? The stuff arrived today, and I was surprised and blown away at how many things were included. Here's the list: 1 freshwater master test kit 3 packages of root tabs 1 bottle of stress zyme, 1 bottle of stress coat, 1 bottle of CO2 Booster 2 bags of Nitra-Zorb and 1 container of goldfish food. Although I won't be using some of these products (the food), I am very appreciative and impressed of their customer service. Although I may have had a bad experience with one of their products, their customer service and care is quite nice.
  6. Yup that's what I'm thinking too. So called 'deals' on used tanks around here are not really deals at all. Guess that's probably what I'll do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Petco sale only goes up to 55. If they includes 75, I would be all over that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I'm looking to upgrade my aquarium to a 75 gallon aquarium, and I think PetSmart has what I'm looking for at a low price. The price they're having it right now is $199, but I'm not sure if that's the best deal, so what's the lowest price you saw those tanks go for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Meet the Ho Ryu!

  12. Finally in the Ranchu game!

    I'm not gonna touch on the QT topic, but I think he is more of a lionhead, or lionchu than a full ranchu. But very cute no matter what
  13. Boy Oranda will be here Friday!

    My oh my, awesome wen!! Awesome fish, congrat!! Btw fyi, I've had my eyes on that fish since forever, so if you ever find your fish missing in the morning,
  14. Python questions?

    If it's on full blast will it be sucking and refilling the tank or just sucking the water? Just sucking the water out since with the faucet tap water, it creates a syphon that sucks out the water.
