Re: Is 50 dollars a good price for a 29 gallon fish tank?

For where I'm at in Ohio, my rule for used tanks in good to great condition is $1 per gallon with lid. $2 per gallon with stand, lid and lights. If it's near mint and holds water maybe up to $2.50 but then you start getting in new tank kit prices so it tends to be a wash. Thank you! Sent from my SM...

Re: Is 50 dollars a good price for a 29 gallon fish tank?

$50 isn't a bad price for both. If Petco is having the $1 a gallon you are looking at $30 with tax. Their cheap stands are around $35-40. Add another $20 for a glass lid. You are up to around $80 new. I would show up to look at it and offer $35-40. If they won't budge you can go up to full price. U...

Re: Is 50 dollars a good price for a 29 gallon fish tank?

A 29 with stand sounds good. They can keep the gravel. You don't need it unless you plan on crabby crafting with it, but I'd recommend staying away from painted gravel. I don't use it because with them being scavengers I'm afraid they would pick off the paint, eat it and get sick. The price on the ...

Re: Can I bleach a tank?

I've found cleaning ammonia to work the best on grimey tanks, and it also sterilizes, but it smells horrendous and you have to be careful about gassing yourself. For really stuck on water spots, dirt, and and dry algae, water and a razor blade works magic. If you scrub with a pad it can scratch the...

You can also use vinegar and water.

Re: Butterfly hatched!

To attract butterflies you need both nectar and host plants. Nectar for food. Host for Caterpillars :) In all of my years ~ I’ve never seen butterflies like oranges, watermelon or sugar water unless they are in captivity. Butterflies prefer flowers. Don’t waste your money on butterfly feeders. Butt...

Re: Butterfly hatched!

Thanks! I’ve bought more perennials this year that will hopefully help with this too! I will have more flowering trees in a few years too. It’s a process but I have goals- a full English garden complete with greenhouse one day. It’s good to dream! [emoji6] Thank you so much for sharing! [emoji3590]...

Re: Butterfly hatched!

That’s so amazing! I would love to do something like that, but I just don’t find many caterpillars around our area. (Except pests) If we find a good one this year as we have in the past I may be in touch! [emoji6] He is gorgeous- congrats! [emoji3590]Dave the Wondercrab~Pat~MaggieMoo~Billy~ Pop~Cor...
