I want to thank Josie, Miranda and Chicago discus for this great raffle. This thread has only been posted just over 12 hours ago and we are already over 25 percent sold. There hasn't even been an email blast yet to NADA members letting them know about this. So if your thinking of buying tickets I suggest you do it quickly since this will sellout before the cutoff date. Thanks,

May i ask a stupid question which i shoud propably have asked before.why do you keep your heater on the floor i have seen it a few times before.is there any specific reason?

I keep mine near the floor so that when I do large water change, I don't have to turn it off/on.

mmorris
04-01-2015, 05:00 PM
Thanks guys! I'm hoping for fry! Time will tell. Hi Quintin, I leave the heater on the floor so 1) the females will be less apt to lay eggs on it and 2) when I do a water change it stays below the water.
