    @pckroeger - thanks for the link. I'll tuck that away for the next time I need to make a costly purchase ;-)
    Cheers
    Grum.

Oh well - patience is a virtue.
    Oh and thanks for the advice to stick with the fish I have - I think I'll do that. Oto Cats are quite expensive (compared to Danios and Neon Tetras, anyway), so I don't want to spend a fortune on a bunch of them only to have them expire after a few days.
    I see you're in Afghanistan - not really a place I'd imagine is overrun with aquarium shops (though my preconceptions of life in Afghanistan are based purely on news footage I see on TV - so probably somewhat biased towards the areas caught up in conflict). Do you have trouble getting supplies there, or is there a side to Afghanistan that we don't see?

    Cheers,
    Grum.
    I'm on a military installation. I had to tear my tanks down but I love the hobby so much I stay in touch through this forum. I have already planned my next aquarium for when I arrive back to the states in April. I read the forums everyday and I continue to learn more and more.

    On the brown algae stuff, they all get them even Salt water, once it balances it will disappear.

    Sounds like off to good a start.
