Default Drac. Felix's New Home.

Well the tank is pretty much done, Except for a few set back's. The light's should be here this week! Having some problems with the misting system I've put together, A fish tank air pump just doesn't create enough PSI so I need to find something that does!! Any Ideas?!?! Also the timers and hydro/temp meter's should be here soon.


So hopefully Mr. Drac. Felix like's his new home and can bounce back from a few week's on the kitchen counter!!

I have a mistking system, so I don't have any insight into a homemade system. What type of lights are you getting?

LED bulb's from Ray's site!! I think I just need to find a pump I can hook up to fish tank tube that has more PSI than a crappy little air pump, wich should be like any one I get.

Yes, any of the aquarium stores around town should have one. You could also go to Lowe's or Home Depot, but they will probably only have SUPER strong ones that will flood your tank! lol

Yea I think I'll try to hold out another month or so before I blow up the tank lol.

I ordered a 160gph submersible pump off Ray's site for pretty cheap hopefully that does the trick!

I got my Riccia at aquatek (aquatektropical.com‎), but I had to special order it. Apparently it is a brutally invasive weed in aquariums, so they wouldn't even let it out of the plastic bag that it was shipped in! lol
