  1. General Freshwater Discussion
    Hi guys, for all of my smaller tanks I've opted for Seachem fluorite, but now that I've got a 95 to fill... that would be close to $400. I've been searching for things in bulk, but I can't find anything except one guy on kijiji selling questionable sand. I'm looking for something black, and...

    Hello, Either my LFS is reprehensible (and i don't think they are), or there's a major tank problem. ...Or a major "me" problem. I've clearly messed up, made rookie mistakes, possibly relied a little too much on my LFS for advice… but how can I do right by these last little dudes...
