I've been going around trying to find more river rocks, but can't seem to find them.


try Michaels crafts or one of those types of places. I always find bags of them there

OO.. I will indeed. :D

Yes, I have gone to Sandy's, however, I went when Bruce was not there. I did recieve the voucher, and thanks for the card! I love the fish drawing. :D I bought two more amazon swords to fill up my background and three Boeseman's Rainbows. The biggest one shows the colors the best (nice deep purple-blueish at the head, then yellow towards the tail, and there are very distinct lateral lines.) and the little ones look like juveniles to me.

No matter what I do, I always forget to get something! :lol: :roll: I was meaning to get some Dwarf Hairgrass as well, but it just slipped my mind! Gives me more time to set up my DIY CO2 though. :wink:

Hi Jacob...
Congrats on the Rainbows!
I'm stuck between Boeseman, Banded and Lake Kutubu...which do you like best and why? (If you have a preference...)

I like them all, but if I had to choose, I'd most likely go with the Banded rainbows. I love the colors on the little blighters! :D
