African cichilds free to a good home.

I have about 1 dozen cichlids I would like to give away. Please message me if you are interested. They are 4-7" long. I have included several pictures. I am in Timonium, MD. Thanks, David.

Heater recomendations?

I just bought a Fluval titanium 300w heater, and I have to say, it should be called a "warmer" instead of a heater.

I have an Aqueon Pro 250w that seems to do a good job, but I need quite a few more heaters.

I'm putting in large tanks, and was hoping to find something reasonable, and in the 500w range.

fish room for sale

45 tank fish room for sale. This fish room was set-up for breeding angelfish for every stage- from eggs to adult. Must be seen to be appreciated and to realize its value. This set-up is great for someone wanting to raise a great range and variety of tropical fish and wants to get into the tropical fish hobby in a big way. The inventory is extensive and will send to serious and prospected buyers that are interested. You can reach me by email petvet84@verizon.net or my cell phone 410-608-8800.

Matten filter with canister behind idea?

Hey everyone,

It has been quite a while since I've posted. I just got back with a new tank and went with a matten filter. It's actually a corner filter from Swiss tropics. It is very nice looking and seems to do a good job. But I'm thinking of adding the intake of one of my spare cannisters behind the foam.

Is anyone else doing this? I'm mainly interested in supplementing more filtration and think this thread might spark some ideas. Also my tank is pretty hevilly stocked and over filtration seems like a good idea.

I'm gonna try and add a few pics.

Thx y'all
