They have lots of very cool shows on there. :) Which reminds me,
I was watching "Home Matters" on Discovery and they were setting
up a make shift pond in a large container. One thing they put
in there was a ball of "Bailey Hay"? It's suppose to keep the
algae away. Does this work with planted tanks? Would it kill
the fish in anyway?
BTW, I got an Eclipse 12, gravel (three bags) and heater for
around $150. I guess with the fishes and plants it comes
out to about $250-$300. Great tank to begin with or something
to start a new project with. :)
