Malaysian driftwood is perfect for aquariums. I've had problems with Mopani driftwood because no matter how long I soaked it, the water turned yellow because of the tannins. I've never had this problem with Malaysian driftwood. The prices are great. The only downside is you don't know what you are going to get. You can have a beautifully shaped piece or just a hunk of wood. The sizes are correct but the shape is unknown. It's a good type of driftwood though.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Value, Pet Loves It, High Quality
Cons: don't know what you're going to get

I love my Python. I don't know how I've ever lived without it. I've had my current one for ten years and never had to replace any parts. It makes it so easy to drain water out of my 125 gallon tank. I run the tube down the stairs to the sink. I used to use it to fill up the tank when I had well water but not now because I use RO water which has to be treated first and then used to fill the tank via pump. I am very happy to have it for draining my tank for water changes though. I would recommend this for water changes.

Not dependable and gets noisy

This pump is powerful. My model 100 is running two 12 inch air stones in my 125 gallon no problem currently. It is not dependable though. I've had three of these and each one died at about a year. I kept buying them because they create lots of bubbles. Smaller pumps I've used in the past were fine but the air stream was too weak for my liking. At first the pump isn't too noisy, but over time it does get noisy. Putting it on a towel helps a little but it still has a lot of vibration noise. Next time I am going to try the Tetra deep water pump.
Pros: creates abundance of air bubbles
Cons: noisy, not dependable
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I use this for my rats when they are out for play time. They like to burrow under it and crawl through the little tunnels. They also tug on the little balls. It's nice and soft and easily washed. I would recommend for rats.

I purchased this for rattie playtime. They run through it, on it, and chew it. I like how it can be made into different shapes. My rats enjoy it and sometimes curl up and sleep in it. It's sturdy and holds up well for my rats.

I've used different circulation pumps in the past. After getting these pumps for my 125 gallon freshwater aquarium I won't buy anything else. I've had the two pumps on my tank for at least 7 years. I like how the pumps attach to the sides of the tank with magnets. They are very quiet. I have no complaints.

This plant is very realistic and well made. I love how it looks in my aquarium. it looks like a live plant and sways in the current. The only reason I give it four stars is because they are a hassle to clean. With plastic plants I've always used a Clorox solution to clean them, but since this plant is silk material I cannot clean it the same way. Each individual leaf has to be scrubbed and algae doesn't come off easily. I still buy them because they look so nice, and after a few cleanings I get new ones. They are much nicer than the plastic ones.

These scrub pads make short work of algae. With the handle you can apply nice evenly distributed pressure. The scrub pads stay put yet the pads can be changed very easily.

I bought this tank to upgrade Charles's (betta) tank. I couldn't be anymore pleased. It's beautiful! This tank commands attention. It's a well made glass tank and has nice curved sides up front. It also has a nice glass lid. It comes with an internal filter that is working wonderfully for my male betta and his harem of females (7 females) and four snails. Included are a sponge insert and Eheim biological media. I have a variety of live plants that are growing nicely under the bright light (using Flourish, Flourish Excel, and Flourish Iron). I am glad that I purchased this aquarium. It looks very nice on my desk.

what kind of fresh water fish eat snails? my snail lays eggs every month.

Clown loaches supposedly eat snails. I've read this in several articles. I've never tried to keep snails with them so I don't know how true this is. If you have too many snails there are snails called assassin snails that eat other ones and keep the population in check.

Natural, nutritious ingredients meets 100% of your adult rat's nutritional needs; no unnecessary fillers, artificial colors, or artificial flavors
 

can you feed it to young rats

i am getting a 6 week old rat from my friend and she feeds her fiesta max do you think my rat will eat this even though it is for adult rats
I wouldn't recommend seed mixes. They aren't nutritionally complete because rats will pick out only certain pieces of it. A high quality rat block supplemented with vegetables, fruits, etc is the best bet. Regal Rat food is a lab block and is a high quality food. Regal Rat adult food is meant for rats that are 6 months or older...however, you can feed this food to your young rats as long as you supplement with some extra protein. There are many foods with extra protein. You can look up high protein foods to get an idea. I have heard that rats don't particularly like the young rat Oxbow. Plus I think it has dried corn in it, which has no nutritional value and can cause problems if it is moldy.

Great solution for transporting small pets like rats, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, or dwarf rabbits in emergency or temporary situations; may also be used as an economical first cage.
 

What is the width of the spacing betweem the bars? Will this work to transport rats?

This cage has 1/2 bar spacing so it's great for transporting even small rats.

Marineland Advanced LED Strip Light: New energy-efficient LED light fixture boasts a built-in digital timer for maximum control, delivering brighter light output than typical two-lamp fluorescent light fixtures.
 

Is this fixture sufficient for my tank?

The fish-tank that I'm considering this light fixture for is a 30-gallon "cube." It's (about) 21-inches tall X 21 X21 and it's for freshwater tropical community fish...no live plants at all. So, will this fixture give a brightness to my fish-tank that will be sufficient for normal satisfying viewing all the way down to the bottom? THANKS
The depth of my tank is 23-24 inches and this LED light lights up down to the bottom of the tank without problems.
