    Using Lexan For A Tank Lid

    I went to my local hardware store to pick up a small sheet of Lexan. It's extremely durable, doesn't yellow, and (big bonus) I can cut it myself. I've done this before to make a lid for a tank I sold on here a while ago. Anyway, this time I noticed on the label that it "blocks harmful UV...

    Will try to take better pictures, but this is the best so far. Notice the black in the top fin. They were being sold as Corydoras napoensis, but don't look it according to this:

    Wow, I Have Really High Ph

    I didn't realize my pH would be so high. I usually just test for ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite only especially since I finally got this new 55 gallon tank started. But yesterday, I decided to do the whole set of tests. How does this bode for my inhabitants, should I start trying to drop the...

    My First Cat!

    Well, a neighborhood kitten found her way to our yard back in late November. We fed her, so she kept coming back and staying on our back patio. And yes, I finally gave in right before Christmas and named her which makes her permanently ours now. Of course, shortly afterwards, it was...

    Another Lfs Closing Near Me.

    Can't Decide: Tropical Vs. Coldwater

    This would be for my empty 55 gallon. It's 48"L x 13"W x 20"H. And yes, it's been sitting for about a year and I'm going crazy with it empty. But I can't decide what to do; which is also making me crazy. I'm trying to decide between these two setups: Tropical Community - 6 to 8 rainbow...

    Caterpillar Found On My Pepper Plant

    Tentative ID is a tobacco hornworm. It seems to match the pics I found here. I left it there this morning and I don't want to kill it, but we'll just wait and see how badly he eats my plant. I'm willing to let him eat a branch or two though.

    Every Page Is So Slow To Load

    So far, I've click on the main page, a couple of section pages, and a few topics. They all take about 1-2 minutes each to load. Just wondering if it was just me. Thanks.

    Weird. Found One Rummynose On The Floor

    I don't know how he could have gotten out. It's a totally enclosed hood. The only hole is for the wiring. So the only explanation is he crawled up the wires (above the water line) to the hole and then slide down them on the other side to the floor. Oh and the wires are in the back, so then...
