    that might be the best part of the trip. Owing to the ongoing battle with columnaris, one daughter graduating from UTA and the memorial for the granddaughter (niece of graduating daughter), I'm probably out of pocket. On the columnaris, I think I've beaten the disease, trouble is the fish don't want to eat. I am not going to suggest the store that I bought these fish at be added to your crawl. (PM me if you want to know)

    19 inches tall 2 notes. It is 19 inches tall. And the images do not say Central Pet. I got it in just before Amazon took off hard and heavy, and didn't have time to do a nice display image, Central had discontinued my other favorite cichlid background and I pulled the image from their site. I don't see any sense in fixing the display image now. I will probably sell the full roll off to a store. I have about 75 feet of this or more. the root...

    guess I should post some pictures. No rush, not like this stuff is going anywhere. All backgrounds are dual sided. on this one, one side is all blue, and the other is planted. Plastic is fairly durable, get tired of one image, turn it over. 19.25 inches tall. I think this is 19 inches tall. 18 inch color area with an inch of profile strip. 19 inches tall 19 inches tall, not sure how much of this I have, but I think over 4 feet. 19...

    I have a lot of old fashioned aquarium backgrounds, the flat kind, you put behind the tank and either squeegie a clear gel to get a really great picture or cheat and use tape and it's not a great picture. I have closed my online store, no longer have a shopping cart, have 5 full rolls ranging from 19 inch to 32 inches tall (these are 50 ft rolls) and about 12 partial ranging from 12 inch tall (3 different pictures, and of course they are dual...

    It might be, and I had it, but I wasn't willing to experiment with it when I had this stuff to try. Quinine is really interesting stuff. and the fish are still doing great

    Owing to being too lazy to rush to a fish store at 10 pm when none are open, and being unwilling to let a fish die, I got creative when I found columnaris on my australian rainbow fish. (I had lost one australian and one neon rainbow in this tank, and one corydoras catfish, and attributed the rainbows to pH, and the catfish to simple fungus due to a scrape on a rock. Well when I saw the saddle back "off color" on my rainbow I sort of remembered...

    New post on columnaris coming up. I haven't completed medicine run but I haven't lost any fish since I started it. I did lose all the baby angels, but getting that 29 cycled it will go better the next time and the pair are flirting again

    A couple of things happened. the cultured sponge filter I wanted to steal turned out to be in a tank with a sick fish. I had lost a couple of rainbows with no apparent system. This time there was a saddle back on a rainbow. Columnaris. I tossed the sponge filter out on the porch, I'll sterilize later. Used Fritz Zyme 7 and uncultured sponges but lost the hatched babies I'd moved to the 29 to a nitrite spike yesterday. I had about 10 to 15...

    i have a pair of diamond tetras in with platies and mollies and this evening I spotted what has to be a juvenile diamond tetra about 3/8 inch long. Don't know if there are more. But it is exciting. I have a lot of java fern and other plants in the tank so pretty good cover.
