    I suggest a road trip to Portland. The Wet Spot is one of the best fish stores on the west coast.

    If you know exactly what you want, The Wet Spot also ships fish, if you don't want to drive.

    Nice tank!

    One suggestion, though. Put more water in it! :shappy: I like to put enough water in so the water line is above the plastic trim, so there's no visible water line.

    That is WAY too much Prime. .75 fluid ounces equals 22 ml. The directions state 5 ml (one capful) per 50 gallons. You are using roughly 40 times too much Prime.

    Since you have a planted tank, don't let the nitrates bottom out, or else you'll get BGA. Keep nitrates up in the 10-20 ppm range. Try not to let it drop below 5 ppm.
