[APD] Online driftwood sellers

Hi all,

I'm new to the world of aquarium plants and aquascaping and such, but have
fallen deeply in love with the idea of designing aquatic environments.  The
one thing I'm finding it difficult to sort out is the use of driftwood, and
the trustworthy places to buy it online (as it's not readily available in
the shops where I live).

I've found one place that seems alright:  http://www.aquariumdriftwood.com/
but I thought I'd ask about potential others...plus maybe some insight into
this particular seller.

Also, is it generally considered bad practise to collect driftwood of my own
to use in an aquarium?  Of course, I assume a boiling treatment would be a
must, but if there are any other things to keep in mind (assuming that this
is an okay practise) I would be happy to know!

Thanks!  I'm glad I found this resource.

To: Aquatic-Plants at actwin_com

Hi Everybody,

After many years of enjoyment, I find myself having to get out of the live
plant hobby for the time being.  I have put up for auction on eBay a factory
sealed Professional sized bottle of Seachem Flourish Trace which I never got
around to using.  I also have some opened 500 ml bottles of Seachem
Flourish, Trace, Iron, Phosphorous, Potassium, & Nitrogen with quite a bit
left in each that I was using that we can maybe work a deal for if there are
any dedicated Seachem users looking for a good deal.

The auction for the professional sized bottle of Flourish Trace has started
out at $15 which I know is lower than what it can be had for at on-line pet
stores, and much lower than local pet stores.  Just perform a search for
"Seachem Flourish" on eBay and it will take you right to it.

Once again, sorry for peddling my stuff here, but I just hate for it to all
go to waste.  Not to mention that it may help someone get some quality stuff
at a good price.

Thanks for reading!

Mike G.

Hi Bob,
Because personally I feel the best way to relate to your own planted
aquarium is to have the top open and the plants growing out of the tank.
Once you experience it you may never go back to glass covers.  See:
Just my personal preference.

A Mom and Pop glass shop might be able to do your cutting with on-hand scrap
really cheap. I recently bought a Perfecto 56 gallon column tank, and had to
make a glass lid for it. There is a big price break between 1/4" and 1/8"
glass around here, and none of the shops here stock 3/16". Special order
only. Perfecto lids are 1/8" anyways, so this Mom n Pop shop cut me a 30"x5"
and a 30"x9" piece of 1/8" for $5.

It took the guy literally about 30 seconds to do both of them.

If you can do 1/8" you might be able to get it done on the cheap, just have
your measurements ready.

Do any of you have any information on using tap water containing chloramines
to raise Daphnia? I understand that using the typical chemical treatments
leaves compounds that are bad for the Daphnia.

Any one have any treatments that would work?
