WTB: Regulator w/ solenoid & reactor

If anyone has a spare one lying around, I'm interested too.

Thanks
Jenn

This was my 20H tank less than a year ago, before my mom killed half the stuff. :(

Nice looking tank Jenn but it could really use a background to make the plants "POP"

Unfortunately, I don't have any of the plants you want at the moment.

Do you think a pink background would clash with the green ? what do people use ?

I'll have to say no on the ostracods, I have quite a few in my shrimp tanks as it is, i was hoping I could pawn some of mine off on you ;)

I prefer black paint myself. The black really makes the plants "pop" but you could always get some of the blue/black background they sell at Jack's. It's a bit easier to change around than paint but a little harder to apply.

btw, is painting the preferred way to do a background ? would some black plastic not stay put very well ? or just look bad ?

If the tank is already set up, painting can be hard to do. The plastic stuff is what I was referring to at Jacks. It is blue on one side and black on the other. It can be hard to apply and I think a coating of mineral oil is recommend so you don't see air bubbles in the background.

A roller is my preferred method of paint tank backs.

I don't know about the forever part but the oil seems to help it stay on the tank better.

I really prefer painting the back.
