I am excited about all of the Manzinita driftwood I have now and loving all of its cool shapes. It naturally floats like a cork, so I am going to be battling that for a while. It’s a part of the game with good drift wood. I am in no hurry to get this Manzanita […]
You have to love the Low Maintenance Planted Aquarium. Everyone always wants to do more, more of this, more light more plants more work, but what about doing less? Is there something wrong with setting out to say, this is all it is. I have been loving the low tech 125 for a good long […]

Cory Cats are one of the more popular fish in the hobby. I have always like them ever since I got them back in college. I love their schooling behavior, but I just wasn’t getting that sweet behavior out of my cories in my 90 gallon tank.
