Drift roses can be finicky to start. Make sure they aren't planted too deep (wet). That much salt is eventual death for almost everything. 1) rerouting your overflow. The plants aren't hungry. Probably ph lockout for nutrient issues due to the salt 2) not much. Bougainvillea, blanket flower...

re: Contractor asking for half up front - FLOtiger
50% upfront isn't the issue. It's the 50% being $2000 that a contractor can't float. I've worked at places that did half & half payments and places that did 30:70 and others that did thirds. All are fine but not for something under 10k...

re: Is Barramundi a lower quality fish like Tilapia? - FLOtiger
Quality of a fish is 90% how it was handled. The "bottom feeder" label is irrelevant to any farmed fish. They are eating pellets off the top. Wild barramundi are game fish caught like bass in Australia. Nutritionally all farmed white fish is about the same because they all eat approximately the ...

re: 75 Gallon Planted Aquarium Build - Completed - FLOtiger
Only suggested more panda corys since you have some already. Pygmy could be cool but I'd probably go with more for a 75. Good idea on adding the tetras as groups until you have enough. Great reason for the crawfish. Any of the dwarf South American cichlids will look great on black sand. ...
