Hi Adam,

Wher do you go in town to get your fish stuff?

I grew up in Schaumburg, but I live in a town call Pingree Grove about 20 miles west now. Near Huntley/Algonquin.


I wish I knew someone to help you out with your fish. I'll keep an ear out.


I don't come to this site that often. I was checking it out, and Im still not sure. I like to look at the tank pic's and stuff, but...and I mean no offense by's just a bunch of kids here.

And, everyone seems to be regurgitating the same thing they heard from someone else without really knowing what it means, or they're are just completely wrong.

Just an example...dirting a tank. It's all the rage here, but for the wrong reasons. IMO you don't dirt a tank to get great plant growth. You do it to complete the ecosystem, and with the benefit is great plant growth. I've had a Walstad tank for a couple of years now, but everyone here acts like it's a new thing like the iPhone 5.

Sorry if that sounded like a rant...but I guess I'm just old. LOL!
